The ground floor
You step up into the house and arrive in the entrance hallway – this level goes around on itself giving a great feeling of space. To the left is a long Provencal-style kitchen and straight in front of you are wooden stairs taking you up to the next level. The open plan sitting room boldly greets you with its black and white tiled floor flowing from the downstairs bedroom through an open archway into this bright and airy room – this is definitely the heart of the house. To the left are 2 large double doors opening onto a substantial east facing terrace (13m2) from both the sitting room and ground floor bedroom. Quirkily decorated with a mix of antique furniture, unusual, unexpected little pieces combined with the odd splash of colour from the contemporary orange sofa (convertable)) and vibrant paintings by the artist owners. This house is completely eclectic.
There is a round dining table, which can be set up in the house or easily carried onto the terrace for summer dining beneath a parasol during the heat of the day or under the stars on a balmy evening. The terrace is a good size with open views in the direction of Nice and down to the coast. Two comfortable terrace armchairs and a low table are also provided, ideal for reading or enjoying a late afternoon apero. The ground floor bedroom has twin beds (2 x 90cm), there is easy access to the w.c and bathroom. The bathroom has just been completely renovated with slate grey floor tiles and fresh, white walls – there is an Italian style shower, wash hand basin unit with drawers, hair dryer and mirror. The w.c is separate and the kitchen can also be entered from this part of the house. Simply equipped with fridge, microwave, electric cook top, blender, sink and washing machine – the kitchen has plenty of cupboard and shelf space, a window onto the little entrance lane way, crockery and utensils are plentiful.
