Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Carre d'Or - Nice Pebbles: Windsor

This contemporary apartment blends cool minimal design and modern comforts

This contemporary holiday rental apartment blends cool minimal design and modern comforts and conveniences. On the edge of the chic Carre D'Or, you are just minutes from the beach and the hub of the Pedestrian Zone. The apartment is on the 5th floor in a well-maintained building This holiday rental apartment is just off the Carré d’Or quarter (Pedestrian Zone). Set back from the main street of Rue de la Buffa, it benefits from being a little quieter than most main street apartments. The living area and kitchen are open plan. There is a large black upholstered corner sofa, a designer leather chair, several console units and a large rug. A side table cleverly extends to a dining table for four (shown extended on one photo). Entertainment is provided from a 40' LCD TV and DVD player. There is an air conditioning unit on the wall.

Carre d’Or area of Nice: The name says it all: Carré d'Or translates as Golden Square. The elegance and the proximity to the Promenade attract thousands of tourists to this up-market area of Nice’s city centre. This area rivals the Old Town for the most sought after location for holiday rentals. The area includes the Zone Piétonne (the long Pedestrian street called Rue Masséna set between Place Masséna and Rue de France), Boulevard Victor Hugo and the roads in between including Marechal Joffre, Rue de la Buffa and Alphonse Karr.

If you’re a keen shopper or prefer a more sanitized area than Vieux Nice or Nice Etoile, this is the place for you. Shoppers can easily spend a whole day in the twenty or so up-market chains or designer boutiques or in the more bargain boutiques that line Rue Massena. The streets are cleaner, wider and the buildings, shops and restaurants are grander, more opulent but have a little less character than their Vieux Nice brothers.

The Carre d’Or apartments are snapped up by affluent purchasers who do not mind paying a premium. Consequently the buildings are generally well looked after. You can expect better common parts than most other areas and the majority of apartment buildings will have lifts and air-conditioning. There are many restaurants aligning the pedestrian zone, although most are mediocre relying on shoppers being weary rather than serving great food. Two exceptions, in our view, are the well respected seafood restaurant Boccacio and the pretty Le Maison de Marie which is hidden behind a red arch leading to bougainvillea lined courtyard. There are also plenty of bars and cafes with pavement terraces, LOVE being one of our favourites for gorgeous hot chocolates in the day and great terrace ambience and cocktails in the early evening.

If you have an appetite for designer fashion , then head to Rue de la Liberté, just off Place Magenta. For the truly affluent, head for Rue Paradis, Avenue de Suede, and Avenue de Verdun running parallel to Rue de la Liberté. This is Nice’s Rodeo Drive and where you will find the elites including Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Longchamp, Hermes and Cartier. Espace Harroch on Rue Paradis is deceptively big and spans four levels on Rue Paradis. As you might expect when there are big bucks involved, English is very widely spoken.

In the evening, there can be a magical atmosphere around the pedestrian zone with the human hustle and bustle combined with the many (and often talented) street artists. The shops stay open until after 7pm and are then replaced by street seller with their wares strewn out on blankets, jugglers, mime-statutes as you stroll out for early evening, sip drinks at the numerous terraces or wander home.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Last year we had a month in another Pebbles apartment, and sadly our 2 months in this Windsor apartment comes to an end. Many thanks to Rose, who met us from a much delayed Paris train, and was always there is we needed anything! What a glorious city this is, and shall continue to visit. If time permits, bus to Menton and to Cannes – an unbelievable €1.50! Ventimiglia Old Town on the hill is worth the climb. Friday there is a huge street market also worth a visit. To all at Nice Pebbles many thanks and hope to be back next February

Excellent accommodation in a convenient location

  • 5 out of 5
Extremely well pleased with the apartment. Very clean and well equipped. Easy to access from the airport as you alight from the bus on promenade des anglais and apartment is just a couple of streets back from this thoroughfare. 10 minutes walk to the old town and plenty of restaurants in cours saleya. About 15 minutes walk to the railway station with frequent trains to other towns along the coast. Convenient to bus stop for St. Paul de Vence, a medieval town in the mountains. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this accommodation.

Terrific Holiday in a Superb Apartment

  • 5 out of 5
Had a terrific holiday in a superb apartment. This is the best apartment we have stayed in as a family- we have been to Nice four times. Nice Pebbles are highly recommended. Professional service throughout our stay.



We have rented many apartments all over the world, and this was one of the best we have found for comfort and efficiency. Our guide was lovely and explained everything and gave good suggestions. The agency Guidebook was good to have. We had a problem with the heating which was fixed right away. The attention to detail was noticed and appreciated.



We booked the apartment based on the photos and were even more pleased when we arrived – the apartment is better in person. We tried to book this apartment again recently, but it was already booked! We see the furniture has been changed, and so it looks like we need to book earlier next year. The location of this apartment is perfect for us – close to the beach but close to the shopping centre too for our teenage girls!

Further into the Carre D'Or area, running along streets behind the Promenade des Anglais is the area we call Carre D'Or West. This area is perfect for its proximity to the beach, without the potential for noise like there is on the Promenade des Anglais. For our guests seeking out proximity to the beach along with modern amenities and decent outside space, this is the area for you.
