There is a high quality leather sofa bed, the coffee table raises to form the dining table, there are spotlights throughout creating a light bright environment and lamps for use when you want to create ambience. There is a 38″ flat screen TV, DVD player, internet, radio/MP3 player and selection of books and DVDs for you to enjoy.


You will want for nothing in the crisp, clean looking open plan diner kitchen with small breakfast bar. At your disposal is a four ring electric hob, combination oven/grill/microwave, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, kettle, toaster and coffee maker. This is a great kitchen to cook in and with a superb supermarket across the road you don’t have to spend money on eating out. Don’t forget you can also use the barbeque and picnic area!

There is a small breakfast bar and table that can seat four.


Stairs lead up to the mezzanine bedroom with a double bed and cleverly fitted wardrobe and drawer space. (Please note the bedroom is not full height)

(If you wish to use the extra sleeping space  provided, then the sofabed in the living room sleeps two. Please note, there is an additional cost for sofabed linen and towels which can be purchased when you book this property) 


The superb shower room is decorated in slate grey tiles and pure white with a walk-in shower, vanity sink unit, washing machine, towel radiator and toilet.


Cimiez is a very wealthy area close to the centre of Nice. It is peaceful and full of grandiose buildings such as the grand Regina Palace. The Regina has every amenity in Cimiez at its finger tips including the beautiful Cimiez park with the Matisse museum, monastery and gardens. The Chagall museum is just down the road and there is a superb supermarket, Monoprix a 2 minute walk away plus local restaurants, pharmacy and post office. This is an ideal area to stay if you want a peaceful base with all modern conveniences within your apartment and the area. A quick and convenient bus ride takes you into Nice centre (buses run until 9pm).

Public Transport

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.

Matisse – Stunning mezzanine apartment with poolApartment

Great Place!
Posted on: 16/02/2017

Great place, everything is perfect and well organized. The swimming pool and the gardens are amazing! Nice area, quite close to the city center….

Most helpful service
Posted on: 05/05/2017

The welcome was efficiently handled. The small modern converted apartment was cleverly designed to allow two people to live with all the comforts required on holiday. Located in an "up-market" area of Nice close to public transport and the Matisse museum. The location of the swimming pool was excellent, and style of the old Hotel was intriguing with its connection to Queen Victoria. Our holiday was enhanced by the efficient and helpful service of the representative of "Your Nice" when a visit to a doctor was needed. A great success all round

Perfect for our needs!
Posted on: 05/05/2017

Definitely would stay there again/ recommend it to others (actually I hope again is soon!). Stayed with another couple and it was pretty cosy but perfect for our needs and very easy to get in/ out and around Nice (street parking was a handy bonus!!!)

Wonderful service

My wife and I would like to thank you for the wonderful service we received on our recent visit to Nice. Both Niina and Gosia were helpful and full of useful information. The welcome packs were a nice touch and accommodating our early arrivals / late departure was much appreciated. We had first class service. Our trip was a bit last minute and we therefore had to use two different apartments. Matisse was compact and very nice in a splendid building; The private garden and pool a bonus. Josephine was a real contrast providing a real slice of the old town. The view over the roof tops was worth the climb. When next in Provence we will certainly use your service again. We are also checking out what you offer in London. The only improvement we can think of is if you included properties in Languedoc-Roussillion in your portfolio.

A romantic getaway!

We just had the most relaxing and romantic New Year’s Eve ever. The Regina building is just awesome. Cimiez is such a peaceful and great place to wander around with its museums and park. We’ll come back to enjoy the gardens and swimming pool in summer.

Nice area, good location

Awesome apartment!

Beautiful building and garden! We would choose this apartment again when we come back to Nice.

Amazing trip. Loved the apartment, will definitely be back!

Had a fabulous stay at Matisse. The pool, gardens , and common areas of the complex are amazing. Just like the pictures, and feels like you are staying in your own palace. The apartment itself is modern and has brand new features. We found it was perfect for two people. My boyfriend is pretty tall, and some of the ceilings for a bit low so had to be careful, but overall that was a minor detail. The place is about a 10 min bus ride to the old town and promenade. We preferred to stay in a nicer, quieter neighbourhood and take bus/Uber (or run! =)) when we wanted to go into town. Overall loved the apartment and will definitely be back! 

Excellent apartment

Excellent apartment. Swimming pool is great

Fantastic little apartment
Posted on: 01/08/2018

Fantastic little apartment and was just right for my fiance and I who were traveling with our 6 month old daughter. We’re glad we hired a car though as the hill mentioned is fairly steep so with a stroller we back in the evening sun was a good workout for working off lunch. Despite they’re being no allocated parking we successfully parked near or within a 1 minute walk of the property which was a great bonus. Nowhere is really that far from Cimiez, we did Nice, Cannes, Antibes and Monaco whilst there for 6 days which was great and YNP host Elena & Jenny were fantastic and very helpful.

lovely quiet pool area

“Elena offers great advice on local restaurants and transport links, and was very helpful with early checkin. It’s a very nice experience to stay in such an iconic building with a lovely quiet pool area.”

Beautiful building

“Beautiful building, nice pool in the summer, easy/cheap bus ride to Nice, close to a supermarket. Have stayed 3 times.”

The pool is amazing

Property manager was wonderful and easy to communicate with! Gave us many ideas and directions to enjoy our stay. The pool is AMAZING

Home from home

The apartment is small but has everything you would need for a comfortable stay. The building is beautiful and the gardens and pool area are lovely. The area is residential and there aren’t any bars or restaurants nearby. There are bus stops which can take you into the main part of town right outside the building so you can be in the main square in around 15 mins and the number 15 bus ran every 5 minutes. The buses are very cheap (€1 per trip if buying ticket with 10 trips on). Nice is a great base to explore the area and has plenty to offer itself. I would recommend this property as lovely home from home in a quiet area, where you can have a relaxing stay.

Brilliant location and stay!
