Reversible air conditioning throughout makes this an ideal all year-round base for any type of holiday.
The sleeping area is separated from the lounge by a door and passageway; keeping noise to a minimum. Neutral tones give the two air-conditioned bedrooms a sense of calm, and both have king-sized Provence style beds complete with ample wardrobe space. Both rooms are fitted with electric blackout blinds to aid a restful night’s sleep and have direct access to the balcony through new double-glazed sliding doors.

The lounge has elegant marble flooring, complementing the stone flooring of the entrance and kitchen and comfortably seats 4 adults either at the dining table or on the lounge furniture. There is a 49” Wi-Fi enabled TV complete with Apple TV, built in USB ports, a Bose Bluetooth speaker and DVD.
Kitchen and Living Space
A spacious 32m² open-plan living space provides a bright and convivial place to cook, eat and relax. The burst of orange tiles recalls the sun glistening off the vibrant terracotta rooftiles of the Old Town and should bring some Niçois inspiration to your cuisine! Running the whole length of one wall the fully fitted kitchen has LED lights and includes an oven and hob, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge/freezer. There is an array of small appliances including kettle, toaster and microwave and plenty of storage space. Off the kitchen there is a cupboard housing cleaning equipment and a vacuum cleaner.
The wraparound balcony is accessible from both bedrooms and the living area. The tables and chairs enable you to make the most of the balmy evenings for an apéro or the sunny mornings for an alfresco continental breakfast.
Paid on-street parking is available but spaces can be hard to find. There are several carparks nearby, however. Try Parking Vinci in Place Arson; just 200m away.
