A magnificent 3 bedroom apartment on two floors in the heart of the Old Town with a bird’s-eye view of the cathedral square and beautiful fountain in Place Rossetti. Both inside and out La Fontaine will fill you with admiration. Fully modernised with contemporary design features but keeping the charm of Le Vieux Nice this is a wonderful location from which to explore the city although La Fontaine will have you looking forward to coming back to at the end of the day. Located at the top of one of the traditional 6-storey Italianate buildings and with no lift means that you can indulge in that extra flavour of ice cream from Nice’s most famous ice cream parlour across the square. It also means you won’t have to leave the apartment to see the spectacular rooftop views which will keep you lingering over your morning coffee or evening aperitif.
Beautiful Balcony, ideal for dining al fresco or enjoying and evening aperitif.
Three double bedrooms (140×200) on the floor above, each with their own ambiance. Plenty of storage space, bedside tables and views of red roof tiles and blue skies.
Two bathrooms, one upstairs, one down. Including elegant contemporary fittings, with a deluxe shower and bath tub.
On the lower floor is a spacious open plan living area; lounge, library, dining and kitchen spaces with a balcony for an alfresco glass of rosé. For your comfort and entertainment there is a large, comfortable sofa, high-tech designer fireplace, flat-screen TV, music system and wifi.
Kitchen and Dining Area
The dining table comfortably seats six and if you choose to do some home catering it will be a delight in this beautifully designed kitchen with island feature. It is fully-equipped with a five burner gas hob and electric oven with also a washing machine and dishwasher.
Overlooking one of the Old Town’s central squares you can watch the world go by at your feet from the comfort of your apartment. Le Vieux Nice is still the most vibrant part of the city filled with cafés, bars and restaurants where both locals and tourists alike drink in the atmosphere of this historic quarter. Narrow streets open out into splendid squares and there are museums, churches and independent galleries and boutiques to explore right on your doorstep. Being 6 floors up you will be above the hustle and bustle below but when your next door neighbour the cathedral is in use be prepared for the proximity of the belfry ringing out over the rooftops! A two-minute walk will take you to Cours Saleya with its daily local produce and flower market, and if you follow your nose through the arches you will find yourself on the beach marvelling at the azure waters of the Baie des Anges.
