THE OUTSIDE SPACES AND THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT
The private garden
The 50 m2 garden illustrates the Art déco style, with its circular concrete table surrounded by matching concrete benches and other devices forming a symmetrical composition. The benches, the sun lounger chairs and the retractable sunshades allow you to enjoy this space of calm and serenity close to the Promenade. You can smell the fragrances of various aromatic Mediterranean comestible flowers and plants, as well, you can use some of them — with moderation — as spices to better your meals.
A great maritime environment
The six kilometres long urban beach of Nice spreads in front of the apartment, right across the street, offering one of the most gorgeous seascapes on the Riviera. The beach alternates public and private concessions. In front of the flat, the public beach (plage du Forum) is one of the best, with an aid post and neighboured by private beaches with good quality restaurants.
An exceptional urban site
Designed in 1939, our building, the “palais Mary“ (53, promenade des Anglais), is inspired by maritime patterns. It represents an important example of the architectural style Art déco in Nice. Its central position conciliates the touristic activity and the urban life. It is particularly convenient as regards the shopping facilities (food and clothing shops, restaurants, banks, hair dressers…), the touristic settlements (bars, casinos, night-clubs…), as the cultural facilities (museums, theaters, cinémas…).
The palais Mary, located close to the bus-stop Gambetta-Promenade, is served by several lines of regular urban and suburban bus lines (even on Sundays). The fare is attractive : 1 or 1,5 € for any journey, connections allowed within a duration of 74 minutes. This facility allows to explore not only the city of Nice but the seaside or mountain resorts within a radius of about 50 km. Nice is also served by a dense net of bikes to hire in free service (“vélos bleus“).
