L'Art des amis (the art of friends) is a beautiful one-bedroom penthouse apartment on the 6th floor with a large south-facing terrace of a beautiful Belle Époque building in the Musicians Quarter in central Nice, 5 blocks off the beach, directly behind the Negresco Hotel. Step into the antique cage elevator and be swept up to a romantic vacation escape you will never forget! Facing south, warm sunlight floods the apartment from morning till sunset. French doors in the living room, kitchen, and bedroom open onto balconies where you will enjoy the breezes and rooftop views towards the sea. (That French flag you see fluttering in the distance tops the Negresco.) The art of personal friends is featured throughout.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We recently spent a week at the apartment and absolutely loved it. We could not fault the apartment or location, they were both perfect. Communication with the owners, Don and Franklin and Sara Jane from the management company was excellent throughout. Just looking forward to the opportunity to return for another visit. more

...perfectly located on the top floor in the safe quiet area with a nice park and supermarket nearby, not mention multiple groceries and cafes on your short and pleasant walk to the beach. Very convenient and reliable payment method (online via credit card). Immediate owners’ responses to all our questions and inquires were outstanding. No hidden flaws, everything was exactly as advertised. We will definitely book this wonderful place again … more
