Situated on a quiet residential street in the Carré D’Or, or Golden Square of Nice, the central location of this classy, contemporary designed, third floor apartment with lift isn’t the only thing you’ll love. Light and stylish with two peaceful bedrooms, Le Joli has a balcony for soaking up the morning sunshine with your coffee and croissants, central heating if required and has been completely refurbished, not to mention a shower you’ll never want to get out of! With shiny parquet floors and new double glazed French windows to let the light in but keep the noise out, Le Joli combines à la mode, French chic with some traditional touches and has almost barrier-free access (one step into the building, and one into the shower).
The bedrooms are beautifully furnished each with a double bed, one king sized, and both look out over a calm and pretty inner courtyard, giving you a restful night’s sleep. Plus plenty of storage including a large cupboard for storing suitcases.
All our properties have the same high quality linen so you can be rest assured of the same YNA standard every time you stay with us.
The bathroom has been immaculately refurbished while keeping some period fittings, with slate colour flooring, stylish countertop basin and a spacious rain shower. The luxury of a spa in your own holiday home!
The living area has parquet floors, French windows onto a sunny balcony and a large L-shaped corner sofa which is perfect for curling up on at the end of a long day. Stretch out and enjoy the 35” TV, wifi and music system with iPhone/USB docking station.
Sophisticated and fully equipped, with Nespresso coffee machine, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine, it’s the kind of kitchen that could inspire some great home catering.
Between the living area and the kitchen is a dining table to seat four people, but there is also a small table on the balcony overlooking the church for al fresco dining.
Just 250 metres from the seafront and the iconic Hotel Negresco, Le Joli is perfectly placed for an early morning stroll or even swim, if you can tear yourself away from the balcony. A 3-minute walk in the opposite direction brings you to Jardin Alsace- Lorraine, a leafy haven where locals watch the world go by, children play in one corner and slender palm trees tower overhead. In addition to the quintessential boulangerie at the end of the road, you have the convenience of being just off one of the main arteries of the city, Bld Gambetta, where there are local shops; from chocolatiers to supermarkets, great local restaurants and buses galore. What’s more, the pedestrianised centre of Nice, spilling over with even more restaurants and shopping opportunities, is a mere ten-minute walk away. It also overlooks the only church in Nice which offers Mass in English, St Pierre d’Arène.
The tram system in Nice has recently developed and there are now 3 tram lines facilitating travel across the city and meeting up with the many buses. Line 3 (approx. 4:23am to 0:45am) connects the airport to the Alliance Riviera stadium, National Museum of Sport and St Isidore shopping centre. Line 2 (approx. 4:45 am to 1:10 am) connects the airport to many stops along the promenade and then onto the centre of Nice, the Old Town and the port. Line 1 (approx. 4:25 am to 1:25 am) meets line 2 on the main shopping avenue of Jean Médecin and then goes north to Nice Ville train station (Gare Thiers) and on through the market neighbourhood of Liberation, or in the opposite direction passing the Old Town, Place Garibaldi for the Bonaparte neighbourhood and onwards to the exhibition centre and the main hospital, Pasteur. Buy your tickets from machines on platforms before boarding: a one-way ticket costs €1.50 (bus/tram changes included up to 74 mins) or you can buy ten tickets for €10 and other passes. All tickets must be stamped onboard.
