About our home

In 1878 the villa Kotschoubey was built as a summer palace for a Ukrainian princess on Baumettes (Villa is now the Musée des Beaux Arts , "Jules Cheret") and in 1950 the classic French Résidence des Baumettes was built in the palace gardens.

Baumettes is the best location in Nice. Baumettes is the only quiet green residential area in Nice close to the prom and city centre. It's well lit and safe, with excellent local shops and facilities, yet has retained its charm, with villas, castles , bijou hotels, and stately buildings.

The large living room has a sheltered south balcony overlooking gardens with sculptures and citrus, magnolia and mimosa trees. Sunlight pours in from 2 balconies and you can relax on the huge sofa, chairs, TV with Satellite and wi-fi. The dining area is at the far end and has a balcony overlooking date palms. The separate kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need from a coffee machine, dishwasher, cooking utilities, pots and pans, spices and oils, fridge, dishes and cutlery. Bedrooms and lounge have AC. the Master bedroom is en-suite with super-king bed. 2nd bedroom en-suite with 2 single beds.

Where is it?


Baumettes is on a small hill and the only green quiet residential area close to the Promenade des Anglais and city centre.
It has excellent links to local amenities and transport. There's a bus stop outside which goes to centre, tram service at 500m to airport, city centre and port. Also easy access by road and rail. Good base to explore Cote d'Azur or chill out
