L'Art des amis (the art of friends) is a beautiful one-bedroom penthouse apartment on the 6th floor (7th U.S.) with a large south-facing terrace of a beautiful Belle Époque building in the Musicians Quarter in central Nice, 5 blocks off the beach.
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.
Remodeled to bring it closer in feeling to the architecture of the Belle Époque period, the apartment features new wood flooring in the living room and bedrooms and period tile set in the entry and kitchen. The kitchen cabinetry has been completely replaced and matching wainscoting installed along with all new appliances and granite countertops. Step through the French door onto to balcony and enjoy petit déjeuner in the sun at your café table for two. Dishes, glassware, flatware, espresso maker and kitchen utensils are all provided should you choose to try your hand at Niçoise cooking. The living room features a black George Nelson-inspired couch for 3 and a comfortable modern 'lipstick' armchair. Flat screen TV, DVD, and internet access provided. The glass coffee table design is by Isamu Noguchi (1948), end tables by Eileen Gray (1927), and glove table lamp by Wilhem Wagenfeld (1924.) While this is actually an 'adult' apartment experience, children are welcome!

Guests should be of the type that enjoy a quiet environment and should respect the building and neighbors. They should respect our belongings as they would if they were their own. This is our pièd-de-terre and we use this property personally. We are happy to share our "dream in the sky" with you.
My husband Don and I live on Capitol Hill in Seattle, WA when we are not in Nice. We are avid francophiles and enjoy weekly meetings with our French tutor. We enjoy weekends at our beach cabin on the Salish Sea during the summer months. Obviously, we love art and spend time at with our artist friends.
