Apartment overview - owner's description

The apartment is on the first floor of the distinctive Vague Bleue building on the Nice Promenade des Anglais with its own balcony offering a stunning panoramic sea view of the famous Baie des Anges.

Across the road is the Bambou Plage Beach Bar and Restaurant where you can lunch or shower after a quick swim in the sea or hire a deckchair for an afternoon nap. It also has a children’s play area.

Although within walking distance to the Place Masséna and the Old Town, there are buses along the Promenade or Avenue de la Californie to get you there in minutes, or a nearby taxi rank if you prefer. The local area also has a number of restaurants, bakeries, patisseries and supermarkets.

Whilst the airport is only a short taxi ride away, the 98 airport bus stops almost outside the apartment, as does the 12 bus to the main Nice railway station with fast access by TGV to Provence, Paris or Italy. Other buses will take you to Cannes, Antibes, Cap Ferrat or Monaco along the coast, or up to St Paul, Vence or Grasse in the hills. There is no need for a car as the Nice transport system is one of the best and cheapest in Europe.

A stone’s throw away are two of Nice’s most interesting art museums, the Musée Des Beaux Art, with its large collection of Dufy and Bonnard paintings and the Musée de L’art Naif with its unique collection of works by painters such as Rousseau and Grandma Moses.

The apartment was renovated three years ago, and is fully air conditioned with double glazing and electric shutters ensuring a peaceful night's sleep.

There are two large bedrooms, one with a king size double and the other with twin beds. Each room has a large double wardrobe with drawers and a large built-in cupboard with shelves. Bedroom 1 is ensuite.

There are two good sized bathrooms, both tiled in Italian travertine and both with a Grohe shower cubicle, heated towel rail, back-lit wall mirror, magnifying shaving mirror, hair-dryer, basin and toilet. Additionally the second bathroom has a bath with hand shower.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a dish-washer, washing machine, oven, hob and microwave.

The apartment has Wi-Fi to all rooms, a Sony HD television with Blu Ray player and surround sound Hi-Fi and a wide choice of satellite TV to include French, German, Italian and British channels.

Additionally, guests have special access via a private corridor to the Palais Doria building behind, where there is an excellent patisserie and coffee shop on the Avenue de la Californie.

The Palais Doria is a fine existing example of Belle Epoque architecture, and next door to the apartment at 139 Promenade des Anglais you will find an example of pure Art Nouveau fantasy by architect Charles Marius Allinge, one of Nice’s most famous buildings, the Villa Collin-Huovila.

Whilst Cannes may steal the limelight with its glitz, few places can compare with Nice for atmosphere. The Old Town is endlessly fascinating with its warren of small streets, some taking you back a hundred years whilst others offer a spoilt-for-choice array of gourmet restaurants and specialist food shops.

The streets of Nice are in themselves a museum or gallery, and on display is some of the best French architecture of the last three centuries.

Perfect Piece of Perfect Nice La Vague Bleue, 143 Promenade des Anglais, Nice, 06000, France Date of Stay 4 Oct 2016 Beautiful view, very comfortable apartment. Everything just like the pictures. Very helpful and accommodating manager, Manu, who met us at our convenience. The location is perfect to enjoy all the Nice has to offer. Our 3 day visit was perfect.

Milagros del Carmen Aparicio Jul 2016

Fantastic views La Vague Bleue, 143 Promenade des Anglais, Nice, 06000, France Date of Stay 16 Jul 2016 Superb location for private and public beach, shops for day to day requirements and some restaurants. Also very close to the bus stop for the short trip into the town for the sights and a wider variety of restaurants. The bus also provides an inexpensive and very scenic trip to Monaco-a must trip. Apartment clean and well equipped with efficient air conditioning. My Response Thank you very much for reviewing the apartment. We hope to see you back with us some time soon.

Stunning Apartment! Perfect Vacation!! La Vague Bleue, 143 Promenade des Anglais, Nice, 06000, France Date of Stay 6 Jun 2016 The apartment is even more stunning and spacious than the pictures depict. We had a fabulous time here! To awaken to the views of the famous Promenade and the ocean was spectacular. At night, when we returned after a day of sightseeing and enjoyed a glass of wine while looking out at the the lights we felt so lucky to have chosen Paul Miller's apartment while exploring Nice. It's very convenient to everything. Bakeries for fresh croissants were steps away as were markets and wine shops and even a pizzeria for a late night snack. We had a rental car, but didn't need it and were able to walk to Old town and experience the many wonderful shops and restaurants every day. Beaches are across the street. We took a bike tour exploring the city as well as the top of Castle Hill. The train made for an easy trip into Monte Carlo. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms are completely updated. We didn't cook, but easily could have. The Nescafé coffee machine was put to good use. The air conditioning works perfectly in each room and we were very comfortable there. There are electric shutters that we used at night providing a restful sleep and added security. Manu, Paul Miller's on site representative, met us when he said he would; explained everything we needed to know about the apartment; offered recommendations for sightseeing and restaurants, and made himself available to us by phone if we had any questions. He was great! This was a flawless rental and Mr. Miller even returned our security deposit less than a week after our stay ended. We would highly recommend this rental without reservation to anyone planning to visit Nice!! My Response Dear Susan, Manu and I are really delighted that you had such an enjoyable stay. We very much hope you will come back to Nice some time very soon. With very best wishes, Paul

Very pleasant apartment for our stay in Nice La Vague Bleue, 143 Promenade des Anglais, Nice, 06000, France Date of Stay 22 May 2016 This is a very nice apartment with beautiful views of the sea. We had a relaxing visit in this well appointed location. Access to the central city will be much improved as the Tram is completed although we didn't mind the walk or occasional taxi/uber rides. Our stay in Nice was memorable and we will be returning soon. Manu was a very helpful property manager and very welcoming. My Response Thank you very much for your review. We would certainly love to see you back in Nice in the very near future. We are all very excited about the new tram extension to the airport from Place Masséna which will mean that access to both ends of the city will be vastly improved, even though it's pretty good at the moment. We think that the current mayor's plans for Nice will ensure that it will become an even more attractive destination for visitors from all over the world. So hope to see you back soon!

We are very grateful for your positive response. We hope to see you back in Nice in the very near future. Best wishes.

Outstanding apartment with a great view La Vague Bleue, 143 Promenade des Anglais, Nice, 06000, France Date of Stay 30 Sep 2015 We had a very pleasant stay in this apartment. The apartment was spacious and well maintained. The view of the ocean from the balcony was incredible! The apartment looks exactly like the pictures. We never cooked in the apartment (we enjoyed eating out) but the kitchen was very well-equipped. The owner was very pleasant to deal with and provided good advice on transportation around the area. Day trips to Monaco, Cannes , Paul de Vence, etc. by train or bus were so easy and inexpensive. . Our train was 6 hours late arriving from Paris and we are very appreciative that the local manager, Manu, waited in the apartment to check us in at 9 p.m. Thank you Manu! I will certainly recommend this property to friends and family. Thank you, Paul, for your hospitality and also for refunding our security deposit within a week of our departure! My Response Many thanks Diana for your review. I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed the apartment and were well looked after by Manu and his team. Also I am glad that you followed up on our recommendations and explored some of the exquisite places that surround the city. There are so many that you can only have touched the surface, so you absolutely have to return one day soon! Very best wishes Paul.

John Cooper Sep 2015

Room with a view! La Vague Bleue, 143 Promenade des Anglais, Nice, 06000, France Date of Stay 10 Sep 2015 Faultless high quality accomodation on the promenade overlooking the sea. What a view first thing in a morning! We thoroughly enjoyed our short break at an exceptionally well equipped apartment. Wifi and apple tv make sure that nothing is missed! The apartment was exceptionally clean and we wanted for nothing. We would certainly return to Nice and the apartment.

Glynne R. said... 7 Sep 2015 wonderful location La Vague Bleue, 143 Promenade des Anglais, Nice, 06000, France Date of Stay 24 Aug 2015 The location on the Promenade des Anglais is absolutely stunning. The apartment itself if well furnished and met all our needs. Although our flight was delayed, the agent meeting us didn't complain, and was very helpful. This is a really good base from which to explore Nice and nothing beats sitting on the balcony taking in the sunny view.

Sabahat Huda Aug 2015

nice , clean and modern equipped apartment. La Vague Bleue, 143 Promenade des Anglais, Nice, 06000, France Date of Stay 21 Aug 2015 The local host greeted us on arrival and showed us everything in apt. Very spacious and an evening tea on the balcony overlooking the sea was splendid. Good public communication right outside. The owner is helpful with all questions. Worth the money spent. Will surely come back If opportunity comes.

Mark Herman Aug 2015

Great for the family or couples. La Vague Bleue, 143 Promenade des Anglais, Nice, 06000, France Date of Stay 4 Aug 2015 This property has all the amenities you need for a short or long term stay. The location which is across from the sea has a balcony from which you can enjoy the view of the sea as well as watching people on the Promenade Des Anglais ride their bikes. You can walk into downtown Nice or take a bus with a stop very close to the condo. Nice at night is a fantastic city rich in its history complete with museums, beaches, shopping, great food, and a thriving nightlife.

Lovely Apartment with View of the Mediterranean La Vague Bleue, 143 Promenade des Anglais, Nice, 06000, France Date of Stay 7 Jul 2015 My husband and teenage daughter just returned from a 3 week vacation in Europe. Four of those nights we spent in this lovely apartment. It is right on the Promenade Des Anglais and an easy walk to the beach across the street. Be sure to bring water shoes because the beach is rocky. We spent every evening from 5-7pm lounging there after our days of sightseeing. The air conditioning in the apartment is fantastic. There is a unit in the kitchen/living room, and each bedroom has it's own. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, but no oils or spices. There were 2 amazing things about this property: First, the wifi - best we've ever encountered. Super fast. And, second, is the response time of the owner and property manager. We had a few small things that needed to be attended to, and I was very impressed by how quick the response was to my emails.

20 May 2015 Happy holidays! La Vague Bleue, 143 Promenade des Anglais, Nice, 06000, France Date of Stay 8 May 2015 We have just returned from a great week in Nice, for which this apartment is perfectly placed. The apartment itself is ideal, with two bedrooms, one with an en suite and the other with exclusive use of the full bathroom. The open plan kitchen lounge was modern, bright and sufficiently spacious with stunning views directly of the sea in front. We enjoyed lovely walks along the Promenade des Anglais and particularly enjoyed the market in the old town. There is a wonderful choice of restaurants to cater fall all tastes. We will return to Nice and would stay again in this apartment if it's available, as I am certain it will be sought after. Happy holidays My Response Thank you very much for your favourable review of my apartment in Nice. On behalf of my management team, we very much look forward to welcoming you back at any time in the near or distant future. With kind regards Paul Miller

Like Clockwork! La Vague Bleue, 143 Promenade des Anglais, Nice, 06000, France Date of Stay 12 Apr 2015 We very much enjoyed our stay in this apartment. We are a family of 4 and it was spacious enough for us all. Well equipped and clean. We were met there for the key handover and shown how things worked. The apartment is on the front with great views and not far from a wonderful bakery. Nice is a great place and this apartment is a good base to make the most of it. My Response Thank you very much for your booking. We are very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay in the apartment and in Nice and we hope to welcome you back in the not too distant future.

A wonderful holiday in a luxurious apartment. La Vague Bleue, 143 Promenade des Anglais, Nice, 06000, France Date of Stay 23 Feb 2015 What a beautiful apartment! Well appointed with 2 large bedrooms with spacious cupboards. Luxurious bathrooms. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need. There is comfortable seating in the living room to watch the tv or just stare out of the window at the beautiful blue sea. The balcony to sit out and people watch is the icing on the cake! Garen was waiting outside to meet us and show us the apartment, he was very helpful and we could call if we had any problems. My Response Dear Ann We're very happy that you enjoyed your stay in the apartment and very much look forward to welcoming you back to Nice in the near future.

Geraldine Fezzani Feb 2015

Lovely sea and promenade view La Vague Bleue, 143 Promenade des Anglais, Nice, 06000, France Date of Stay 16 Feb 2015 Garen the agent met us and explained about the apartment and the surrounding area and Paul the owner sent a text to make sure everything was ok. The apartment was like the pictures. Kitchen was well equipped and there were instructions on how to use all the equipment, although we did have some fun trying to work the induction hob, but succeeded eventually! Sitting on the balcony we had lots of entertainment watching the joggers, cyclists, walkers etc. Bedrooms were at the back of the apartment away from the road and spacious with ample space for clothes and both had balconies. Good quality bedding. Both bathrooms (the ensuite with just a shower) were roomy and towels were a good size and quality. Local shops were nearby and it was a pleasant 25min stroll to the old town. We had travelled by car so the only downside was the 26€ a day for parking, but we knew no parking was a available at the time of rental. All in all a lovely apartment that I would certainly recommend and stay in again. Deposit has been returned

Private Owner From Haslemere, United Kingdom Member since Nov 2016

I am a photographer and video editor who has retired from running a TV post-production company in central London. I have now invested in two apartments in central Nice to enable me to enjoy the wonderful climate, food and scenery that the Côte D'Azur offers.

I currently live in Haslemere, Surrey in the U.K

Please do feel free to email me direct with any comments or suggestions as to how I might be able to improve the apartments and your holiday experience.

I do hope that you will enjoy your stay in this endlessly fascinating city.

As of 2016, I have also invested in a third apartment in Alvor in the Algarve in Portugal, which in my opinion has some of the best beaches, golf courses and water sports in Europe.

With very best wishes,
