Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Nice - Le Trésor de Nice
1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom [WC], sleeps 4 max.
You’ll fall head over heels for Nice! The city boasts sparkling beaches, sunlit streets, ocean breezes, and a temperate climate year round. Unfortunately, the vacation rentals here tend to lack the elegance and whimsy of the rest of the town. We know—we stayed in several before buying our own penthouse apartment, Le Tresor de Nice.
Our experience with the accommodations in Nice spurred us to create a vacation rental experience that consistently surpasses our guests’ expectations. We spent months renovating Le Tresor de Nice before opening it to be shared with others, and it features all the personal touches you would expect from a treasured family home.
Two terraces and several large windows showcase the shimmering Mediterranean, the sun-washed architecture of Nice, and the gentle slope of the mountains. One terrace includes a four-seat dining table and lounge chairs for sipping wine under the moon, while the stars and city lights merge into one glittering panorama.
Marble floors pave the way into Le Tresor de Nice, which is reached by elevator and laid out into an open floor plan with a large living room, one bedroom, and one and a half baths.
A brand new, fully stocked kitchen with fittings and furnishings from Italy, stainless steel appliances, and granite counters is the perfect setting for preparing gourmet meals in the country that invented gourmet. A small supermarket for gathering fresh ingredients is located just down the way, along with a boulangerie, where you can induldge in a fresh croissant or buy a loaf of bread for later.
When its time to present your enchanting meal, a glass-top dining table, lit by an elegant chandelier, has room for six. You can also light a few candles and dine on the terrace in the balmy Mediterranean air.
The kitchen also has breakfast bar—an ideal place to settle in with an espresso from our Nespresso machine and catch up on emails (freeWi-Fi is provided). Or, if you’d rather work with a view, Le Tresor de Nice provides an office area in front of a large window overlooking the bay, which bustles with ships, boats, paragliders and planes descending to the nearby airport. This dreamlike view will be the only impediment to your productivity: a printer, scanner, and plenty of desk space for your laptop are included.
Luxury linens enfold a queen-sized bed in the bedroom—a wonderful place to rest after a full day of exploring. A second terrace with bay views is accessed from the bedroom. Here, for a romantic moment, you’ll find two chairs and a table with just enough space to rest a pair of wine glasses.
The bathroom includes a rainfall showerhead, vanity mirror, and spacious marble countertops for all of your cosmetics and beauty products. A half-bath with sink and WC is located just off the foyer. There’s also a sofa that converts to a bed in the living area, which will accommodate two extra guests.
The beach is a ten-minute walk from Le Tresor de Nice (15 to 20 minutes on the way back) or a five minute bus ride. We recommend some form of vehicle transportation so you can motor along the coast or into the mountains. A vehicle will also make it easier to reach the plethora of cafes and restaurants in Nice’s city square or Old Town. An electric car rental service—8€/hour with a one hour minimum—can be found just downstairs.
Prefer not to drive? There are several options for public transportation. Take the convenient bus service to Gare de Nice Ville, where you can take a train along the scenic coastline to Marseille or Italy.
Another perk—two of our friends in the building, French-Canadians who speak both English and French, are available to meet and greet guests, answer questions and assist in emergencies
It’s always a great time to visit, and our luxury vacation rental ensures your stay in Nice will be twice as nice. Get in touch today to book your getaway!

About Ralph & Karen Moorhouse
We are committed francophiles and after spending many years getting to know Paris, renovating an apartment there  we started coming to the Côte d'Azure, looked for an apartment & knew that this was it when we walked into the living room and saw the view. Another renovation followed to a higher standard than the typical Nice offering - its a place we would live in full time....maybe some day!!
Ralph & Karen Moorhouse purchased this apartment in 2010
Why Ralph & Karen Moorhouse chose Nice
The view! Sitting on the balcony with a cool glass of Rosé enjoying the view, the sun and cooling breeze is magic. This is the enduring feedback we get from guests and why we spend more time here than in Paris [ID 224052]
What makes this apartment unique
We have 2 wonderful on-site staff, who have become good friends, to welcome you and help you settle in. A convenient bus will take you to the SNCF station, for travel along the coast, or hop off en-route to pick up another bus into the center of the town. Local supermarket & bakery will supply you basic needs to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner on the balcony.
