Located right in the heart of Nice Old Town (“Le Vieux Nice”), Le 17 offers our guests the perfect combination of access to the shimmering waters of the Mediterranean – the famous Promenade des Anglais is only a 2mn walk away - and a stay in the most authentic and vibrant part of town.
Situated amidst the beautiful pink, orange and yellow facades of the 17th-century buildings, reminiscent of the Old Town’s Italian roots, Le 17 is a stylish and inviting apartment for travellers wishing to immerse themselves in the baroque Mediterranean vibe of this district.
Recently renovated to a very high standard, our 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, fully air-conditioned apartment successfully blends original features and traditional fine French furniture with contemporary kitchen design and appliances, making it a rare find in perfect harmony with the historic character of this sought after neighbourhood.
Our high ceilings and windows offer unrivalled views onto the Prefecture Palace and its yellow stucco façade, beautifully lit at night. Previously the residence of the Kings of Sardinia, this classified heritage building has played a leading role in the history of the city since the early 17th century.
In keeping with our prestigious surroundings, we have furnished the apartment with an eye for elegant details (wooden floor, linen floor-length curtains, mirrors and chandeliers) and chosen the equipment to make our guests’ stay as comfortable as possible. From hotel quality mattresses and bed linen, to state of the art Italian kitchen and appliances (De Dietrich) and air-conditioning throughout, we hope that our guests will feel at home from the minute they step in.
WHY STAY IN THE OLD TOWN?
The Old Town is the historical and touristic heart of the city, its most iconic and vibrant district. Nowhere else in Nice will travellers experience the eclectic feel of this charming pedestrian neighbourhood bustling with local cafes, bars and gourmet restaurants, lively nightlife, colourful food and flower markets, charming local shops, artisans and galleries. It offers endless opportunities to wander the meandering streets and alleyways bathing in the warm hues of the numerous heritage buildings and sacred architecture.
Its unique central location enables visitors to go back in time while being only a few minutes walk away from the seafront activities, whether a romantic stroll along the world-famous Promenade des Anglais or a dip in the intense blue waters of the Mediterranean.
For those tempted to venture further, the tramway stops a few minutes away from the apartment, providing easy access to other parts of Nice and from there to all the major cities and attractions of the French Riviera.
WHY CHOSE LE 17?
It is unusual to find such a spacious apartment, and especially one with this level of refinement and air-conditioning throughout in the Old Town. The apartment is on the 2nd floor of a traditional “niçois” building with a lift accessible from the 1st floor (our guests will still have to climb the stairs to the 1st floor).
Living & cooking
Painted in a delicate shade of grey, the stylish and welcoming open-plan living harmoniously integrates elegant furniture, wooden floors and chandeliers with a very contemporary lacquered kitchen and bar. The high ceiling and windows with their original wooden shutters are graceful reminders of the building ancient past, and allow guests to enjoy magnificent views over the palace from every angle. Each piece of furniture has been meticulously chosen with the lifestyle of the discerning traveller in mind, whether enjoying an espresso at the bar, a glass of wine on the sofa or a gourmet meal at the wooden dining table.
Soaking in the lively atmosphere of the traditional “provencal” markets of the Old Town will undoubtedly inspire our guests to cook. Our brand new and fully equipped kitchen is a cook’s dream, with first class appliances by De Dietrich, ample storage, a very large worktop and a few recipe books.
There are endless dining and entertainment options just down the street but after a long day at the beach or spent exploring the area, you might just want to sink into our comfortable sofa and watch a movie or your favourite series from our selection of channels or Netflix.
Sleeping & bathing:
Painted in soft hues of grey, all three bedrooms have been decorated in a quintessentially French refined “provencal” style, with fine furniture, delicate furnishing and individually selected artworks, each retaining its own character. All bedrooms have air-conditioning units and hotel quality mattresses to guarantee our guest maximum comfort.
Bedroom 1 is fitted with a king size bed (180x200cm), Bedroom 2 with a queen size bed (160x200cm) and bedroom 3 has two twin size beds (90x200cm) that can be attached together to make a king size bed. This flexibility allows us to comfortably accommodate families and groups of friends alike.
In keeping with the rest of the apartment, each of the three bathrooms has been carefully decorated with an attention to detail. Two of the bathrooms are equipped with showers, featuring beautiful designer tiles and sizeable baroque mirrors. The larger bathroom, equipped with a bathtub, offers a relaxing sanctuary in calming shades of beige. Guests are provided with a starter pack of soap, shower gel, shampoo and body cream.
