Le Douzy is a two bedroom, one bathroom, first floor gem in the heart of old Nice. Built in the 1700's, it has all the charms of an old Niçois apartment but was refurbished in 2013. Close to shops, restaurants, historic churches, galleries, bars and colourful history.
Le Douzy is special because it's located in the heart of it all without the inconveniences of a typical tourist destination. You'll live amongst the natives, able to do your market shopping at the cours Saleya and take a morning dip in the Mediterranean, while also being able to visit the small food shop around the corner for those forgotten items or buy a fougasse for lunch from our friends at the local boulangerie. All are literally between 30 seconds and 5 minutes away from your doorstep. The building is secure and protected by a main door .
Not next to the t-shirt or tacky tourist shops, but some of the better restaurants in town. Le Tapenade, for example, is known for its Sardines and other Nicoise delicacies and is just down the path from the apartment.
It's just a quick walk to the easy to navigate Tram network which will take you in all directions, including the Place Massena, the Palais de Congres, or even the central train station from where you can easily hop on a 20minute train ride to Monaco for the day, or the beautiful villages of Gorbio and Menton.
And because we don't want to forget the modern world completely, Le Douzy is also heaven for Geeks (or at least adapted for those of you who still need to work while on holiday)!
