Waterside apartment Literally Next to the Sea ‘Pieds dans l'eau’ and only 3 minutes to Monaco by train...station 5 minutes away on foot...the best of all worlds.
2016 is fast becoming our most successful year yet with returning guests booked from the USA, Switzerland, UK and Russia..all enjoying our home as much as we do.
This is our luxury home from home that sits right on the Mediterranean, CLICK LINK FOR BING MAP http://binged.it/1gh6mnn only a short glorious walk along the foreshore to Monaco, or a three minute train ride from arguably the train station with the most beautiful view in the world!
With multi million pound villas on either side of us, this is a very rare apartment on the top floor of the building, which gives spectacular sea views out of every window. see the link to Youtube video here ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpxxiWngg1E ) There is nothing more relaxing than falling off to sleep with the sound of waves breaking with a light breeze coming in through the arched French windows.
We have only just finished completely refurbishing this apartment to a very high standard, as it’s our intention to live in the apartment once we reach retirement in a year or two. We have tried to incorporate everything that we wish for ourselves- top of the range smart Sonos sound system with Amina invisible speakers throughout to keep the apartment clutter free, smart television with Wi-Fi, stone tiled luxury wet room, exquisite kitchen with high end appliances including a steam oven and combination oven, and Nespresso coffee machine. The balcony is a super place to watch the yachts and super yachts sail by, relaxing with a book and a glass of excellent Rose wine, either sitting at the wrought iron table or stretched out on the sun bed. The whole apartment is furnished with handmade bespoke furniture imported from England to fit the apartment. We have also installed double electric blinds inside and out for year round comfort. Everything that you would want in your own home from home!
We chose this secluded apartment for ourselves because of its wonderful position, not only in relation to its breathtaking views, easy access to the sea, and sand at Plage Mala just around the corner where you can hire Jet Ski’s, kayaks or day boards etc, but also because of its ease of access to the whole of the Cote d'Azur, Nice, Monaco and the French Riviera. The train station is only a five minute walk away, also overlooking the Mediterranean, with frequent services to Monaco (3mins), Nice (18mins), Cannes (55mins) Ventimiglia, Italy (30mins). Both the train and bus rides are inexpensive and afford stunning views of both the sea and the Corniche.
The light in this part of the world has drawn so many artists over the years because of its amazing intense quality. You only have to mention Picasso, Matisse, Chagal amongst many others. Consequently there are many fine art galleries and museums displaying their work. The Villa Rothschild in Cap Ferrat is well worth a visit and is only 12 or so minutes away on the train. We enjoy walking in the Alpes Maritime in the spring and autumn; it’s a bit too hot in high season for us oldies!
World Class events
Another big attraction for us to this area is the number of world class events that take place throughout the year. There's the annual Monaco F1 Grand Prix, the biannual Historic Grand Prix that takes place two weeks before the main Grand Prix, the Monaco Tennis Tournament, International Boat Show, not to mention the Opera in both Nice and Monaco. Many world famous Rock and Pop stars give concerts here - no doubt because they too like to take time off and relax in this beautiful part of the world.
There's a little of everything here from the peace and serenity of the apartment to the bustle of the markets and night life in both Monaco and Nice and the small towns in between. It goes without saying that there is a lot of high class designer shopping in this region if you wish it!
A word of caution
A number of properties are listed on Home Away as being in Monaco when in fact they are not, Beausoleil, for instance is not close to the sea and is in France. I have noticed one listing where they have the moved the property on the map to the beach!
We take great pride in listing our apartment accurately in description and on the map.
