Cool, classy and chic, this light, airy and very spacious apartment can be found smack dab in the middle of Nice's Old Town amidst a proliferation of bars and restaurants.
The Palais is a bespoke high spec fourth-floor pad with two bedrooms, boasting luxury linen bedding, and two bathrooms - one with shower and bath - flat screen TV, kitchen, dining table, and, best of all, two balconies where you can sit and watch life unfold beneath you.
If its the Old Town quarter you want then this apartment is ideally situated. It commands a fabulous spot looking out over the bustling main square, with its pink clock tower and the Place du Justice. A stone's throw away lies the famous Cours Saleya flower and fruit and veg markets and, just beyond, the shimmering turquoise blue waters of the Mediterranean and the palm-fringed Promenade de Anglais.
Stylish and sophisticated, it's an ideal place for a family of four or a group of friends and, for good measure, has a lift, which, with an elderly parent in the party, was a massive bonus.
One note of caution perhaps - the square gets noisy at night and in the early hours and the sound travels upwards. If you can't beat them - the revellers - then either join them, or do as we did - a splendid tip from our tour guide - and buy some earplugs from the nearby pharmacy. They worked a treat, honestly!!
A word for the staff at Nice Pebbles also - charming, friendly, highly professional and very helpful.
Hope to come back another time. Highly recommended.
