The kitchen opens up onto a small balcony with a beautiful ocean view. There is sun all day since the apartment has three orientations, from east to west. You can then have your breakfast and look at the sea as the sun rises and have your dinner with the same view as the sun sets with a beautiful view of the illuminated city and it's Promenade. Because of its unique location, the apartment is very quiet. There is a private garage for one car or you may leave the car in a parking lot. There is one bathroom and a separate room for the toilet.

All windows have electric shades. Beds and furniture are new, except early XIX century Provencal chairs in the living room and a Louis-Philippe cupboard in one bedroom. Spices, dry herbs, and cleaning liquids are left in the apartment for your convenience. Their replacement is expected. There is a cable LCD television and a fiber optic internet access.

Neighborhood and weather: Nice is the French's fifth largest city - well served by an international airport, trains, highways, and a harbor. Nice has its own opera house, many cinemas where films in English are shown. The city is at a 20-minute drive to Monte Carlo or Italy (180 kilometers from Genoa), 25 minutes to Provencal villages such as Saint-Paul de Vence and Monte-Carlo, and 80 kilometers from ski slopes (South Alpes). There is a 20-minute walk to the beaches, ten by bus, and five by car.

The swimming is very pleasant since the water temperature can reach 28 degrees Celsius during the summer. Even though people swim all year round, it is comfortable till late October. Warm enough to grow grapefruit and oranges not to mention the famous small Nice olives, the area is the warmest and the sunniest of France. The dry Mediterranean climate gives a summer average between 25 and 30 degrees, 15-20 during winter (but it can be 26 on the terrace in January).

Since the apartment is located on a hill and with its three orientations, it enjoys a natural and pleasant breeze. In winter time, it is warm enough to lunch on the terraces and go skiing in the afternoon...

About Norman

Why Norman chose Mont Boron

Because of its exceptional location. The reviews tell why we all love this apartment: the enchanting view of the Mediterranea and the very quiet bedrooms open on a terrace facing a forest... You can not find a quieter place to rest.

Stunning panoramic views of Nice & fully equipped

  • 5 of 5

If you enjoy looking out on a panoramic view of the Med, the Promenade des Anglais, Nice and the Alps from your balcony, you'll love this place. Throw in the fact that the 2 br apt is spacious with every possible requirement, has a private garage, and an owner who is exceptionally helpful and available and i dont think there is a better value in all of Nice.

The central location is ideal, close but just beyond the hustle of city centre. The kitchen is fully equipped with quality everything perfect for cooking in with a huge selection of wonderful restaurants close by. We will be back for another visit and will stay here.

The property lived up to our expectations completely. What a view!!!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place. The view was breathtaking both during the day and at night. The apartment was of a very high standard. It was very well equipped and the range of travel guides was exceptional. What made it even more interesting was the beautiful selection of books about Nice and the grand villas of a bygone era. I would definitely recommend this property.

Overlooking the Mediterranean and Nice

  • 5 of 5

Surrounded by beautiful pieces of art, your very comfortable apartment on the slope of Mt.Boron overlooks the majestic Baie des Anges, and the Old Port of Nice. Take your car from the private garage, or get the #30 bus at the foot of the driveway below the apt & you are in Old Nice in less than 10 minutes. The nearby 100 bus runs from Nice to Menton, along the coast, allowing you to visit lovely fishing villages, beaches, or wager in the celebrated casino at Monte Carlo. Don't miss spending a day in Menton, the Pearl of the French Riviera.

Your host Normand is available by phone or e-mail and his instructions are all you will need to enjoy a wonderful stay in this fully equipped, very clean, and well maintained two bedroom. The view from the living/dining room is one of the best in the South of France. Enjoy the sunsets from the balcony. Awaken to the morning light emerging from behind the Mountain to illuminate the Azure of the Mediterranean sea. Explore one of the great cities of the world. It sits at your feet. Especially attractive for those who embrace the travel adventure.

Beautiful and comfortable stay above the city of Nice and the Med beyond

  • 4 of 5

My husband, daughter and I used this lovely, well-appointed apartment high above Nice for a base from which to explore the French Riviera. The beds are very comfortable and the shower is another nice feature. Meals can be taken on the balcony with sweeping views of the city and surrounding hillside and the sunsets are spectacular! If you are a confident driver we'd recommend having a car (there is a garage provided) but there is also a convenient bus stop at the end of a steep drive. There is a good Carrefour supermarket close by at the end of the road with as well as a pharmacy. No restaurants to conveniently walk to but we enjoyed our own evening meals al fresco. Norman is an attentive owner and very helpful in answering questions.

Beautiful view from a restful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this apartment in Nice. The apartment is the most comfortable, well appointed house or apartment we have ever rented. It is also well decorated and lovely. The view of the city and harbor is stunning. We loved watching all the boats, large and small, coming and going, as well as the people swimming in the sea. It was very restful to be able to come home to a quiet beautiful space after a full day of fun and activities.

Owner's Response: Dear Elizabeth, Thank you for these kind words, it is very important to me that visitors have the full experience of the apartment meaning more than its exceptional view. I hope you will be coming back and remember former tenants get 10% off on their next rental. Kind regards Norman

Perfect location & wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed apartment with great views of Nice & the harbour. Norman was exceptional with his correspondence & details about the area. Public transport is convenient at the end of the winding road - not for the faint hearted by car!! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend or return

Promenade des Anglais
Cours Saleya
This one place to see in Old Nice.. Full of restaurants, nice market. In summer but alos dur...
Place Massena
Nearest Airport
10 Miles
Car: not necessary

This is the best of many worlds. Ideally located on the top of a hill in Nice, you can experience the unique view of the Mediterranean, day and night (stunning city view at night) and sleep in the best condition since the 2 bedrooms open on a park and on a terrace. There are so many things to do in the area not to mention Italy which is just a 45 minutes drive, Monaco 30 minutes.
