Condo/Apartment
The apartment is on the first floor of the distinctive Vague Bleue building on the Nice Promenade des Anglais with its own balcony offering a stunning panoramic sea view of the famous Baie des Anges. Access to and from Nice Côte D'Azur airport could not be easier with the new tram line opened in June 2018 which stops at Magnan just behind the apartment. You can get off at either the Magnan or Lenval Hôpital stop, either is equidistant from the apartment. The completed line will take you directly to the Port and Place Garibaldi and is due to be completed in September 2019. Whilst the airport is only a short tram or taxi ride away, the no.12 bus from Magnan will take you to or from the main Nice railway station with fast access by TGV to Provence, Paris or Italy.

Whilst the airport is only a short tram or taxi ride away, the no.12 bus from Magnan will take you to or from the main Nice railway station with fast access by TGV to Provence, Paris or Italy. Other buses stopping on the Promenade will take you to Cannes, Antibes, Cap Ferrat or Monaco along the coast, or up to St Paul, Vence or Grasse in the hills. There is no need for a car in Nice as the transport system is one of the best and cheapest in Europe. Nothing symbolises Nice more than the Promenade des Anglais. This 3km-line of south-facing apartments runs along the wide public beach from the Radisson Blu hotel all the way to the Negresco hotel. Just north of here is the Carré d’Or, the city’s ritziest residential zone, and Place Masséna, the geographical heart of the city. Across the road from the apartment is the Bambou Plage Beach Bar and Restaurant where you can lunch or shower after a quick swim in the sea or hire a deckchair for an afternoon nap. It also has a children’s play area. Although you can walk to the Place Masséna and the Old Town in 25 minutes, there are frequent buses along the Promenade to get you there even quicker. There is also a taxi rank at Magnan and Uber provides an excellent service in Nice with a large number of drivers. The local area also has a number of restaurants, bakeries, patisseries and supermarkets if you don't feel like wandering further afield. A stone’s throw away are two of Nice’s most interesting art museums, the Musée Des Beaux Art, with its large collection of Dufy and Bonnard paintings and the Musée de L’art Naif with its unique collection of works by painters such as Rousseau and Grandma Moses. Redecorated in 2018 , the apartment is fully air conditioned with double glazing and electric shutters ensuring a peaceful night's sleep. There are two large bedrooms, one with a king size double and the other with twin beds. Each room has a large double wardrobe with drawers and a large built-in cupboard with shelves. The main bedroom is ensuite. There are two good sized bathrooms, both tiled in Italian travertine and both with a Hansgrohe shower cubicle, heated towel rail, back-lit wall mirror, magnifying shaving mirror, hair-dryer, basin and toilet. Additionally the second bathroom has a bath with hand shower. The kitchen is fully equipped with a dish-washer, washing machine, oven, hob and microwave. The apartment has Wi-Fi to all rooms, a Sony HD television with Blu Ray player and surround sound Hi-Fi and a wide choice of satellite TV to include French, German, Italian and British channels. Additionally, guests have special access via a private corridor to the Palais Doria building behind, where there is an excellent patisserie and coffee shop on the Avenue de la Californie. The Palais Doria is a fine existing example of Belle Epoque architecture, and next door to the apartment at 139 Promenade des Anglais you will find an example of pure Art Nouveau fantasy by architect Charles Marius Allinge, one of Nice’s most famous buildings, the Villa Collin-Huovila. Whilst Cannes may steal the limelight with its glitz, few places can compare with Nice for atmosphere. The Old Town is endlessly fascinating with its warren of small streets, some taking you back a hundred years whilst others offer a spoilt-for-choice array of gourmet restaurants and specialist food shops. The streets of Nice are in themselves a museum or gallery, and on display is some of the best French architecture of the last three centuries. Parking There are two public multi-storey car parks within walking distance of the apartment .

About the neighborhood
Nice has a microclimate with more sunshine during the winter months than any other place in France. It is also very easy to get to, especially with the proximity of Nice airport to the centre of the city. There are many excellent restaurants to choose from, great shopping and a wide array of amenities and magical places to visit. The Promenade Des Anglais is unique and legendary. it's the centre of Nice life. To Nice residents it is is 'La Prom' stretching for almost 7 kilometres and lit up at night it is known as 'the Queen's necklace' glittering and sparkling all along the coastline.
How to get there
Access to and from Nice Côte D'Azur airport could not easier with the new tram line opened in June 2018 which stops at Magnan just behind the apartment. You can get off at either the Magnan or Lenval Hôpital stop, either is equidistant from the apartment. The completed line will take you directly to the Port and Place Garibaldi and is due to be completed in September 2019. Whilst the airport is only a short tram or taxi ride away, the no.12 bus from Magnan will take you to or from the main Nice railway station with fast access by TGV to Provence, Paris or Italy. Other buses stopping on the Promenade will take you to Cannes, Antibes, Cap Ferrat or Monaco along the coast, or up to St Paul, Vence or Grasse in the hills. There is no need for a car in Nice as the transport system is one of the best and cheapest in Europe.
