Secret Garden is located in central Nice and is very special as boasts a private and peaceful 40 square metre south facing garden. Relax in a sun lounger or dine at the six-seater table whilst surrounded by flowers, vines and the smell of summer jasmine. Heaven!
The owner has a passion for music and is a collector of art. You’ll find wonderful artworks with bursts of colour splashed throughout and there is also an electric piano and headphones for your musical enjoyment! Your provençal paradise awaits you…
Secret Garden is in the area of Quartier Etoile which is a wonderfully central location. Walk out of your door and the main shopping area is very close by with its high street and designer boutiques. An array of restaurants, both modern and traditional is on your doorstep and the more tourist centre of the Old Town is a few minutes’ walk away. The restaurant Flaveur, which was just awarded 2 Michelin stars, is half block away. The beach and promenade are 10 minutes away by foot and public transport is excellent and within close proximity.
Opposite the front of the apartment, a new underground station, “Station Durandy,” for the second tram line in Nice is almost completed. The major part of the construction (which is performed only during working hours on weekdays) is finished, and currently the noise of construction is less than the regular street noise which is all blocked by the beautiful double glazed floor to ceiling windows in the living area. When completed in July 2019 (although please be aware this could overrun the expected finishing date), the green neighbourhood park will be restored to it’s former glory.
If you have any queries on these or any other matters please do not hesitate to call us and ask!
A stunning private 40m2 tiled garden leads out from the master bedroom. The owner has planted flower beds, with climbing plants as well as flowers, all around and these are irrigated. There are chaises longues, other chairs, a picnic table with six chairs and umbrella, on this private garden.
It is a very special peaceful and rare area in the heart of the city!
Two large bedrooms at the rear of the apartment, not near any traffic, will ensure a peaceful night’s sleep. The colourful master room has a king size bed, a ceiling fan and oceans of storage space. It also leads out into the secret garden! The second bedroom is of equal size and has twin beds, a ceiling fan and plenty of storage space. It also has an additional (22”) TV c/w DVD (English and French channels) for private viewing by the kids – or the adults!
Both of the bedrooms can be heated or air-conditioned by newly installed Mitsubishi outdoor units, which allow guests to set the temperature desired for each bedroom.
There are two bathrooms, one with a full-size bath and overhead shower, vanity unit and toilet. The other bathroom has a shower room, a toilet and sink unit.
The living area is at the front of the apartment. It is decorated in a combination of provincial and modern style with a mixture of original contemporary and traditional art – paintings and an amazing sculpture commissioned for the apartment, in the niche. There are two ceiling fans creating a cool breeze throughout the apartment. The lounge area has a large comfortable sofa and two casual chairs, a 32” TV (English & French channels), Internet/WIFI access, DVD and CD player. For music lovers, there is even a Yamaha Clavinova digital piano with headphones.
Double glazed windows provide a generally uniform temperature throughout the apartment: alternatively, in the evening, the ceiling fans with open windows create a delightful breeze.
The spacious and exceptionally well-equipped kitchen has everything you could possibly wish for and more. At your disposal is a four-ring electric hob and oven, microwave, free standing fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washing machine/dryer, iron and ironing board, coffee machine and expresso maker, toaster, kettle and a vast array of pots and pans and provençal dishes to rustle up a feast.
Choose to eat at either the large six seater table in the spacious dining area or in the secret garden.
