A Beautiful Duplex Apartment in the Heart of Nice

Brunelle is a newly-renovated, stylish two-bedroom gem found in the very centre of the city in a delightful garden setting. Set back from the mostly residential street the building is surrounded by a well-kept garden with security gate and communal entrance hall with resident caretaker. The living area looks onto the evergreen shrubs and magnolia tree, giving an oasis of calm to this great location, while bespoke oak fittings sourced and handcrafted from the owners’ forest in the Tarn-et-Garonne add to its charm.


Living Area

The apartment is brought to life by the warmth of the oak fittings throughout. Carefully designed to maximise light and space the open plan upstairs area is comprised of a seating area with garden view, a fully equipped kitchen and a dining area. The large windows allow a spot of nature into this relaxing corner and have electric shutters for convenience.  The seating area has two armchairs and a comfortable leather sofa which pulls out to sleep an extra guest if needed. There is a flat screen UHD smart TV for Netflix, Amazon Prime, Molotov etc. with DVD player including a selection of DVDs for your entertainment, and a high-speed fibre-optic Internet connection.

The kitchen is also given character by the superb oak panels and will welcome gourmet chefs and tentative sandwich makers alike. It has an electric oven with four hobs, a microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee maker and dishwasher. Your laundry needs are also taken care of by a washing machine, tumble dryer and ironing equipment.

(If you wish to use the extra sleeping space provided, then the sofa-bed in the living room sleeps one. Please note, there is an additional cost for sofa-bed linen and towels which can be purchased when you book the property.)

        “We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your gorgeous apartment and couldn’t believe how conveniently located it was. Looking out onto the lovely garden yet a stone’s throw from all the shops and restaurants, and only a 10 minute stroll to the sea, was a major plus for us.  We found the apartment super comfortable with everything we needed for a great stay – just perfect. We will be back for sure!”

        Location & Nearby Attractions

        The apartment is situated right in the centre of Nice.  It is in a beautifully maintained Art Deco building, on the tree-lined residential street of Boulevard Dubouchage, which intersects the main shopping street of Jean Medecin. It is located on the slightly elevated ground floor (There are 5 steps up into the building), with the bedrooms on the lower ground floor. 

        Bars and Restaurants

        I think you could probably eat out at a different restaurant every night of the year!  There is so much choice and literally something for everyone.  

        Getting There

        Fly to Nice International Airport. A tram from outside the arrivals door will transfer you directly to the underground station of Victor Hugo which is 150m from the door and it only costs €1.50. Taxi transfers are €35

        Getting Around
        Getting around in Nice could not be easier. Firstly, there is so much within an easy walking distance. If you want to go further, buses and trams are within 150m and fares are only €1.50 and can be used on both. The train station is a 10 minute walk for trips to Monaco and Italy or Cannes. Bicycles can be hired from outside the building too.
        If you want to shop, Nice is the place to be. Our apartment is located next to the Shopping Mall “Nice Etoile” with 100 shops undercover. Not only that but we are just off Avenue Jean Medecin, the main pedestrianised shopping street. Various streets running off this have interesting boutiques and 5 minutes walk away is Avenue de Verdun for Louis Vuitton, Benetton, Tiffany, Cartier etc.

        For supermarkets, Casino is literally just around the corner with Monoprix in the next block.

        Biking & Hiking
        Hire a bike at one of the “Velo Bleu” stands (there is one outside the building) and go exploring. There are many cycle routes and the biles have a basket for taking a picnic.

        If you fancy a walk, the coastal paths are amazing or you could climb the shady paths of Castle Hill for fabulous views across the Bay of Angels, the old town and the port, visit the waterfall and the old ruined citadel.

        Day Trips

        So much to do here. From boat trips, site seeing, a train ride along the coast to Italy to even spending a day skiing in the Alps!
