Unique and very big flat designed and decorated by a scandinavian designer. It is ideally situated to visit the region since it is a short walk to the main train station, the beach as well as being nearby the highway and airport. The main room with kitchen and lounge has a beautiful painted ceiling and has direct acces to the terrace and garden. The impressive hall/dining room is the centre of the home with direct access to the three double bedrooms. Air conditioned, free onsite parking.
The building was originally a bourgeois villa built around 1880 in the 'Quartier des Musiciens' (the musicians neighbourhood) and the servants would live and cook in the servant quarters downstairs. It was later split to multiple lots and this one is the largest (175m2) and only one with a large garden and terrace (30m2).
The faded painted ceilings and old style layout was completely renovated and redecorated when a scandinavian designer bought the place 10 years ago. By respecting the classic bourgeois charm of the building, it was made truly unique due to the mix between classic and contemporary style.
Two of the three rooms have two large single mattresses put together to make a 2m x 2.1m bed and the third room has a 1.40m x 1.85m double bed. The two smaller rooms have en suite bathrooms and the master bedroom has a very large bathroom in the opposite corner of the flat.
The oven, hob and fridge are all Miele and of high quality.
The fiber internet connection is very fast and makes it possible to stream movies easily during your stay, or to watch internet television.
Please note that the lounge furniture has been moved around slightly to accommodate for a large television.
You will have access to the entire home and garden except for one small wardrobe (used by us for practical things for rental).

I have been living in Saint-Paul de Vence for 16 years, and could you give some advice about good places to visit, not only in Nice, but also Cannes, Antibes and the villages in the surrounding area.
The musicians neighbourhood is well known for it's 'Belle Epoque' architecture and saw a boom of hotels made in that style, all the streets are named after musicians. The neighbourhood has a rich history of famous people staying at the many hotels here since it was more decentralised at the time.
All shopping can be done by foot as well as all travelling if you dislike discovering the region with a car, it is right next to the train station.
To get to around, you can rent a bicycle from the bike rental network 'Vélo Bleu', which goes all the way to Villeneuve Loubet. You can use your credit card at the rental spots.
You will be close to public transport, which will make getting around Alpes Maritimes easy. If you have a smartphone, we recommend the application 'Transit app' (free), which is a transport tool that can tell you which bus stops are around you, and can guide you from your current location to anywhere you want to go. Otherwise you can use the website 'Lignes d'Azur'
The closest train station is 'Nice ville', which is a 10 minute walk from the flat. If you want scheduled information, you can use the 'Trainline EU' (free) smartphone app, or go directly to the train network website called 'SNCF'.
