The sunny colours of Nice Port with its yellows, oranges and terracotta façades and equally colourful flotilla of traditional fishing boats are reflected in this meticulously designed, colour splash apartment set just behind the port itself. A newly refurbished, two-bedroom, double aspect apartment giving you fresh sea breezes and a balcony full of afternoon sunshine from which to savour a slice of Niçois life.
Sienna benefits from a glorious balcony for catching the afternoon sun and a glimpse of the sea, or even a romantic dinner for two on warm summer nights.
A traditional area of Nice, the Port has a beating heart all of its own, whilst being a short walk or bus ride from the Old Town and shopping centre of the city. Numerous cafés and restaurants to suit all tastes make the most of the sunny quay sides and offer terraces to catch the morning or evening sunshine. It is inhabited by tourists and locals alike and you will find shops and supermarkets in abundance just seconds from your doorstep. A 5-minute walk takes you to the rocky inlets and perfect snorkeling areas of La Reserve and Coco Beach, and the magnificent coastal footpath, which leads around the headland to Villefranche.
The 98 airport bus runs from the airport to Nice Riquier train station, just inland from the Port. Get off at Place Max Barel and it is a short walk to the apartment. The Port is a hub for many local buses, which will take you to all areas of Nice and along the coast towards Villefranche and Monaco. Visit www.lignesdazur.com for more information. Nice Riquier is the closest railway station and will take you to Italy or west towards Cannes and Marseille.
There are two bedrooms, one twin, overlooking the street, and one double at the back, looking out over the courtyard and up to Mont Boron. Both are equipped with bedside tables and reading lamps.
The white and blue tiled bathroom has a shower cubicle, basin and toilet.
Living and Dining Area
In the living / dining area, which opens out onto the front balcony, there are two burgundy chaises longues, perfect for reclining on after a long day of sightseeing. A coffee table, TV with DVD player, music system and wifi look after your home entertainment needs, while French windows open out onto the balcony making the room light, airy and perfect for an alfresco aperitif to catch the evening sun. To complete this chic yet cosy living area there is a stylish, circular dining table to seat four.
The galley kitchen is well-equipped for self-catering and has an electric oven and 4 hobs, a toaster, a kettle, and a washing machine with iron and drying rack to take care of your laundry needs.
