A stunning, light, bright, spacious duplex apartment with additional, independent studio and spectacular view framed by the Riviera’s iconic pines. This property is an ideal holiday getaway. High up on the exclusive hill of Mont Boron and overlooking the Baie des Anges, but with easy access to both Nice and Villefranche, this is an invitation to experience the Côte d’Azur at its most alluring.
There is plenty of outside space to enjoy; allowing you to optimise the view across the bay and over towards Cap d’Antibes and the hills above Cannes. Blossoming sunrises to flaming sunsets will cross your canvas and can be enjoyed from the terrace off the living space as well as the sun loungers on the roof terrace, not forgetting the small bedroom balconies.
Downstairs is the living area with a television corner, coffee tables, two sofas, armchairs and a desk all allowing the view to take pride of place. With its mix of contemporary furnishings amid graceful architectural lines, there will be a comfortable spot for everyone! Wifi is of course provided and there is access to Chrome Cast giving full viewing options. From this area two wide, sliding French doors open onto the terrace for alfresco wining and dining or just relaxing in the sun.
Kitchen and dining area
The open plan kitchen/dining area is on the second floor making great use of the double storey windows from sunrise to sunset. Wood, glass and aluminium with splashes of colour give this space a refreshing modern appeal at any time of day, as you watch the changing light immortalised by so many artists. The L-shaped kitchen has an electric oven, microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee machine and dishwasher. The studio kitchen is also equipped with a microwave and dishwasher, and there is a separate room to take care of your laundry requirements.
There are two double bedrooms in the main apartment with king-size beds, a sea view, and access to a small balcony. The studio has another king-size bed, and all have bedside tables and lamps. A seventh person can be accommodated on the divan downstairs which turn into a sofa-bed. There is A/C and double glazing throughout to ease you into a good night’s sleep.
All three bathrooms are superbly styled in pristine white with designer fittings. Two feature twin basins and marble decoration; two have an Italian easy-access shower and the third a luxurious bathtub for serious pampering. There is a further separate WC on the kitchen/living level.
Mont Boron is a much sought-after, prestigious area of Nice boasting several iconic residents in addition to the pine trees. Close to the Port neighbourhood with its life and excitement, but with the relaxed air of a hillside retreat, Mont Boron has a lot to offer. Above you sits the Parc de Mont Boron; a Mediterranean forest and nature reserve ideal for walking, running, playing pétanque, picnicking or just breathing in the sweet smelling pine-infused air, not to mention the hilltop fort. Ten minutes’ walk will take you to Cap de Nice where you will find an excellent supermarket and a couple of cafés and small shops. Buses pass by regularly on this route and there is access to a superb coastal footpath in both directions. A twenty-minute walk down the hill will take you to the rocky swimming area of Coco beach but be prepared for a longer climb home! The more family friendly beaches of Villefranche are just a ten-minute drive away and can also be reached by bus or the stunning but steep coastal path.
For those without transport, the line 30 bus passes just below on Bld du Mont Boron taking you to Promenade des Arts in the centre of Nice for connections to the airport or Nice Ville train station, or in the other direction via Riquier train station to Vauban further inland (a 15-20 min journey in both directions). From Nice Ville or Riquier trains are available west towards Cannes, or east through Monaco into Italy. Buses also pass in both directions along the main road near the Carrefour supermarket at Cap de Nice.
For those staying with a car, there is a car parking space in front of the apartment for your convenience.
