Everything is at your fingertips in the galley-style kitchen with a small breakfast bar and stools. Well-equipped with an electric oven, microwave, 4 hobs, dishwasher, toaster, kettle, cafetière and full laundry equipment; you will want for nothing.
The master bedroom has a mirrored-sliding door opening on to the ensuite bathroom; a contemporary Versailles Hall of Mirrors complete with chandelier and parquet flooring. The blue bedroom instills you with a sense of calm and both bedrooms have ample cupboard space and bedside tables. There are mobile A/C units for when temperatures rise and a third one for the living room should the sofa bed be needed to sleep six guests. For the cooler months Belle Epoque benefits from central heating and double glazing for a good night's rest.
The secret ensuite bathroom has a bath tub with several shower fitting options, a large basin and mirror with spotlights, as well as plenty of space and storage. The second bathroom has a step-in shower and bidet, and both are well-lit with heated towel rails.
The elegant living/dining room has two large French windows opening onto a small balcony. Step into this room and delight in its comfort and style. Welcoming sofas and armchairs encourage you to sit back and relax around the coffee table, while the dining area, with a large table for six, could also be turned into a games room or a discussion table to plan your next day's activities.
From the living area, French windows open out onto a Juliette balcony from where there is a sea view.
There are several car parks close by; Parking Nice Promenade and Parking Meyerbeer are two of the closest.
Buses from the airport go straight along the Promenade and stop at Gambetta/Promenade just a couple of blocks away, and the main Nice Ville train station is less than a 15-minute walk to take you to Italy in the east and Cannes to the west.
Where better to base yourself to discover or rediscover the Côte d'Azur? For over a hundred years the Carré D'Or has been the centre of tourism in Nice. This much sought after area, built in the Belle Époque, boasts beautiful façades and has several lush gardens to complement the extravagant architecture. Belle Epoque is moments from the beach in the centre of the Baie des Anges, and a short walk to the luxury shopping quarter and pedestrianised area of rue de France where you will find a host of restaurants, cafés and ice-cream parlours to choose from.
