ENJOY YOUR HOLIDAY! ****** if you like being transported back in time, while enjoying the comforts of modern living, if you love having a balcony with a beautiful view and if you prize all the amenities offered by a central location like ours, then Palais du Pin apartment is right up your street. Located in Place du Pin, a historic square linking the picturesque Port to Vieux Nice, this beautiful neoclassical building is surrounded by trendy restaurants, cafés, quirky shops, handy supermarkets and convenience stores, exquisite artisan bakeries and patisseries, museums, churches, and for your nights out: bars, clubs, theatres and cinemas. And, to complete your memorable holiday: relaxing promenades, manicured gardens, lush parks, pristine beaches and fantastic sea views, are well within walking distance! Travelling by public transport in Nice, along the coast, or up to the mountain villages is cheap and easy; buses and trams are frequent and major stops are located all around us. Exciting news: the 2nd Tram line linking Nice Airport to Nice Port, will open this September 2019 and take you to our apartment in about 20 minutes at a cost of €1 per person. Meticulously restored to its original beauty, Le Palais du Pin, built around 1840, has kept its original Italianate façade, shape, style and colours and was restructured to accommodate functional modern apartments like ours which offers a roomy balcony on which to delight in al fresco dining, bask in the afternoon sun or simply admire the charming Place du Pin and the lush Castle Hill.

We pride ourselves in keeping it, scrupulously clean, tidy and to maintain it to high standards. USEFUL FORMATION FOR THIS SOUTH-WEST FACING APARTMENT Due to strict regulations covering our 1840 neo-classical grand house, an air-conditioning unit with an outside condenser is not allowed. However, we have fitted our apartment with 1 quality adjustable speed fan for the living room and 1 powerful, silent, remote controlled air cooling tower for the bedroom. Tips for keeping cool in hot summers • have a cool shower just before going to bed • Wet your face and arms with a flannel or towel • soak your feet in cold water for 10 minutes before going to bed • In the afternoon sprinkle the balcony with a little water. • close all 3 shutters from early afternoon especially the south-facing window • open them during in the morning and evenings for air circulation • Open the windows at night. to reduce outside noise, use ear- plugs • Drink plenty of water. Ours is from a nearby stream and is excellent • eat earlier. NOTES: We rent for a maximum period of 2 to 3 weeks per booking. Our prices include: * Welcome basket * Toiletries and * Our double bed is fitted with mattress and pillows protectors. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 06088003383OLMore
