Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Carre d'Or - SunlightProperties Violette
Newly refurbished apartment with sun soaked terrace located in the best area!
EXTRA: All our guests enjoy a complimentary transfer from Nice airport to your property in central Nice!
Newly renovated in a style which is contemporary yet classic, this beautiful apartment benefits from an enormous terrace which is a rarity in the centre of Nice. The location is perfect - hyper central on a prestigious and charming street amongst the most luxe boutiques in Nice. Everything is a short stroll away - restaurants, shops, bars, bakeries etc. plus the pedestrian zone and beach; yet this apartment is situated in a quiet spot and is perfect for two couples or a family.
BEDROOM & BATHROOM 1:
The first bedroom is washed in natural colours of beige, sky blue and deep pink. It is highlighted with a backdrop of natural linen curtains and headboards, along with a beautiful antique style, black topped bedside table.
There are two single beds at 120cm each (instead of the usual 90cm). A silver double-headed lamp is set in between for convenient bedside reading.
You will find an ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower complete with multi body jets and rain shower head. A hand sink, heated towel rail and a high powered hair dryer are also available. There is an integrated closet area with a full length mirror, as well as direct access to the wrap around terrace and pantry with a washing machine combo dryer.
BEDROOM & BATHROOM 2
The second, master bedroom, is set in colours of cream and black with a touch of luxury throughout. Cream coloured, crocodile patterned curtains are held by black feathered tie backs and crystal hooks; the look is completed with glossy jet black side tables, silver footed side lamps and a 160cm (British King/ American Queen) bed. All topped off with crushed velvet noir pillows and a faux fur throw. A soft white canvassed painting graces the wall to bring all the elements subtly together.
There is a modern, ensuite bathroom with full sized bathtub, shower, toilet, hand sink, heated towel rail and high powered hair dryer.
There is also a full length mirror, integrated wardrobe area and extra shelving space which offers plenty of storage for two. There are shutters and curtains on every window to allow for sleeping in late.
Aptly named Amour Violette, Cupid and Venus sketches grace the walls of the living area where a deep violet wall takes centre stage. The living area is open plan with the dining and kitchen areas. The space is bright and open with large French windows facing both the small interior impasse and the private terrace.
The space has been thought out to allow comfortable lounging for 6, with a fabulous sofa for 5 as well as 2 reading chairs affording plenty of space to relax.
A large 36in energy efficient LED flat screen provides ambiance and entertainment with an integrated French cable, WiFi, and DVD wall mounted system. There is also a small library of books and games available for guests to enjoy during their stay.

Guestbook comments from the manager
My friends and I really loved the apartment. There was plenty of room for all 3 of us. It exceeded all our expectations. Beats the heck out of staying in a hotel. One night we took our dinner to go and we ate out in the balcony. That was very relaxing. Everything was spotless (very clean) and we love the decor.
We thought the location and the neighborhood overall was great. It was close enough to everything and yet not really in the middle of it all, which was how we like it. The bakery right on the corner was just what we needed. We bought our early morning croissants, brioche, and coffee over there.
I don't know about discovery as far as restaurants but a friend recommended Acchiardo and also Cave De L'Origine which incidentally was also one of your recommendations. We went to those places and was not disappointed. We missed going to the La Merenda though. Oh well, maybe next time.
Sunlight Properties overall was very easy to deal with. Everything was really straightforward. Christine was great. She was there to meet us within minutes of our arrival at the apartment. She even set the washing machine for us when I told her that we forgot how to work it. :-)
Thank you! We really did have a great experience with you and we had a great time in Nice.
