Les Oliviers in Alpes-Maritimes, a cottage in Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur: View from Les Oliviers

Typical hillside Niçois house, sea and mountain views with easy reach seafront

Les Oliviers is on one of the hillsides around Nice just 1 km from the Promenade des Anglais and within walking distance of the centre of town. It is situated at 100 m above sea level with views of the Mediterranean and the mountains way behind Nice and is set in a former olive grove, now the oldest residential development in Nice, Parc Mosca. Facing South and West the house and garden enjoys the maximum of sunshine although there is plenty of shade under the centuries-old olive trees.
Eating outside on the terrace is a real pleasure and for the energetic there is a table tennis table. Sun loungers are also available, but the beach isn't far away. Don't forget, the beach in Nice is pebbles, but the sun is the same!

Parc Mosca is rather like a village with most houses dating from the 1920's. The 'village' itself is very quiet. Access is by a narrow twisty road snaking up the hill, although there are plenty of shortcuts using staircases between the houses for those who prefer to walk. Parking is available in the property for reasonably-sized cars.
At the bottom of the hill the bus (just 1,50€), every 10 minutes or so, goes right to the centre of town with connections to many, many other destinations. However if either Antibes, Cannes, Grasse, Vence, etc. is your destination, then the bus stop for that direction is on the Promenade des Anglais (10 mins walk).
Public transport in the Nice area is excellent and inexpensive so you can really enjoy being driven to so many places or why not take advantage of the municipal hire-a-bike facilities?
Also at the bottom of the hill are a good selection of local restaurants, including for excellent traditional Niçois food, banks, supermarkets, chemists, etc.

The flat is the lowest level of the house and opens out directly onto the terrace . It measures just over 800 sq ft. and is totally independent. It has been completely refurbished with all the amenities mentioned and consists of one large twin bedroom, a sitting room leading directly out onto the terrace and a separate dining area. There is a well-equipped kitchen, with a store room behind, as well as a shower room and a separate toilet.
As it is often used by members of our own family it is not always available.
The flat is a no-smoking zone but smokers are welcome to use the terrace as long as their party agree !

We are sorry that there is no adequate easy wheelchair access. As the garden is a series of terraces, children should be reasonably autonomous, but everyone is invited to explore.

Short breaks, 3-5 days, are also possible, please ask for details.
