It is approximately 78 sq metres and comprises of a living/dining room, an open-plan kitchen, two large bedrooms, two bath/shower rooms and two balconies.
The apartment is on the 5th floor (with a lift) within a well-kept residence. It is in a fantastic location at the corner of the Port area and within easy walking distance of many restaurants, cafes, shops, town centre, the old town and beaches. It is also ideally situated to visit the neighbouring villages of Villefranche and Beaulieu-sur-Mer as well as Cap Ferrat and Monte Carlo.
It has a maximum occupancy of 4 people (plus babies) and would be perfect for a small family or group of friends who wish to be near to the sea, and all that the city has to offer.
