Opposite beach, overlooking Mediterranean, sunny balcony, great views & location
Why Kevin Samphier chose Carre d'Or
Nice is the hub of the Cote d'Azur; 300 days of sun make for a warm welcome and the Riviera has a special and glamorous feel. Sunbathing, sea swimming and skiing can all be enjoyed from this spot. Nice's vast promenade offers a tranquil place to stroll or cycle, cooled by the sea breeze. Great shopping, eateries, cafes and nightlife can be found in Nice; the old town offers a unique architectural experience; a pleasant respite from the sun by day and a laid back place to enjoy an evening drink or two. There are numerous delightful squares in Nice to enjoy the atmosphere with a coffee; Place Massena, Place Garibaldi, Cours Saleya, Place du Palais and Place Rossetti. Outwith Nice, Monte Carlo and Cannes are within easy and inexpensive reach, boasting their glamorous annual events; the Monaco Grand Prix and the Cannes Film Festival. Ski resorts Isola 2000 and Auron can be reached by car or coach.
What makes this Apartment unique
I consider Royal Luxembourg's location to be the best in Nice; a seafront property in the centre of the cove, at the city centre end of the promenade. The sea view, rooftop pools and underground parking it offers, make it second to none. Once a hotel, the building retains a feeling of order, purpose and class. The building offers panoramic views of the coast.

Nice apartment. A little small and bed could have been more comfortable. Overall ok with good location
Fantastic apartment!! Sea front location, wake up looking out to sea, palm trees and sun!! The apartment, which is modern and well maintained is less than 15 minutes drive by either bus or car from the airport. There are two Bistro's right outside for breakfast. Train Station is 15 minutes walk from the apartment where you can go to Grasse , Villefranche sur Mer or Monte Carlo which can be reached in 22 minutes. Tickets cost approx 8 Euro return. Eateries for lunch or an evening meal are within less than 5 minutes walk, as is Old Nice Town, the port, the high end shopping area, casino's, and tram line. We would stay again without doubt - what a fabulous apartment in a great location!!
Basic but done the job
Fantastic location, superb roof top pools and the owner a pleasure to work with.
Third time staying in this apartment with my wife and children aged 12 and 10.
Beach is literally across the road, the old town, the city and the main train station just a short stroll away.
Pool area on the roof has spectacular views, a very shallow pool for kids and a deep pool for adults.
Everything ran like clockwork again, a real credit to the owner.
We will definitely be back again!
Apartment very clean and comfortable. Had a fabulous holiday.
Excellent location. Disappointed with pool area as no sunbeds or shade. Clubhouse wasn't open, but maybe it is too early in the year? In the apartment, only minus point was that the hairdryer in the bathroom had a very short lead, therefore making it very difficult to style my hair. Would also like to have been able to find one English speaking channel on the television. Everything else, great!!
Perfect family holiday
We stayed at the property for a week with our 6 month old baby, it was perfect - had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and in the most perfect position!
We chose to get a taxi from the airport but the no 98 bus from the airport stops literally right outside the property along with all the other buses, the train station is a 15 minute walk away and we visited both Cannes and Monte Carlo by train which was a lovely scenic journey. However we just loved Nice there is so much to see and do all within walk away from the apartment.
Right outside the door are fantastic restaurants and cafes, or you can walk a little further into the old town for even more choice! Everyone is so friendly and helpful.
We collected the keys from the manageress of the property and due to some works being done in the entrance hall, two very kind gentlemen helped direct us to the apartment and helped us with our luggage.
We did not need to contact the owner during our stay however he dealt with our booking efficiently and responsed to any queries I had very quickly. He also provided some useful information on his information pamphlet.
The apartment is on a busy main road so fantastic for people watching and an excelellent view, beautiful to wake up to each morning, it can be busy with traffic noise but we slept soundly every night with the shutters down (including our 6 month old babay) without any disturbance.
We will definitely be back in the near future!
If not swimming or sunbathing, a short beachfront stroll brings you to the Albert 1er gardens with children’s carousel and play area. La Place Massena is next, in an explosion of colour with striking facades, bright flowers and ornamental fountains. The Old Town is 5mins walk from the apartment and boasts the renowned Course Saleya open markets; a real taste of the Mediterranean. Pass beautiful architecture, Nice Opera house and the Museum of Modern Art before spying the glittering yachts in the spectacular port; Corsica is 3hrs away by ferry. This apartment, ideally located for airport transfers, is the perfect base for excursions, being the closest point on the Promenade to Nice train station & an enjoyable 15min walk from the bus station. Visit Monte Carlo and Cap d’Ail or Cannes & St Tropez, or even spend a day in the mountains. The building is on the edge of the pedestrian zone, full of excellent cafés, restaurants and designer boutiques, with high street shops and trams nearby.
Ski: The ski resorts of Auron and Isola 2000 are 95km from Nice.
