Palais Maeterlinck is a legendary Baroque and Neoclassical building that has had three lives. It once belonged to a Nobel Prize-winning Belgian poet, then it was reborn as a grand hotel, and in 2012, a Czech billionaire turned it into its current incarnation: 18 luxury residences with interiors designed by Ralph Lauren Home.

This residence is one among them. Elegant and modern, it surrounds you with panoramic views of the jewel-like Mediterranean sea and brings its coastal hues and textures inside: a seafoam green accent wall here, shell sconces there, and natural woven materials throughout. We love the graceful circular staircase.

Come relax and enjoy all of the building’s amenities: nine acres of picturesque gardens, cypress trees, and a 65-foot-long stunning pool flanked by 20-meter-high Greek columns. It is also guarded 24/7 and features its own private funicular that takes you down to the rocky beach, where in summer months there are sunbeds and a lifeguard present. 

This holiday apartment in an iconic building in the French Riviera is a spectacular choice for those who revel in the intersection of history, luxury and architecture. 

Description

This luxury apartment in Nice has two bedrooms and three bathrooms. It features a high-ceilinged living area that blends into the dining area, and several balconies with seating and sea views. Located on the waterfront, it has its own beach access downstairs.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Internet, TV, air conditioning, heating, kitchen, washer, dryer, hot tub, wheelchair accessible, smoking allowed (on the terrace only), suitable for events. 

Additional add-on experience (fee applies): the owners have a brand new De Antonio D42 boat, and are offering it as a rental. Explore the French coast, hidden beautiful beaches, and Lerin islands. The pick-up is even possible at the beach below the residence. 

AROUND

Right off of your own private beach, there is a photogenic sea sidewalk leading to Nice’s port and Promenade des Anglais. Along the path and a ten-minute walk away, you’ll encounter the charming Le Plongeoir restaurant and Grotte du Lazaret cave. Parc du Mont Boron, an elevated, wooded park with walking trails and sea and city views, is a seven-minute drive from the residence.

Palais Maeterlinck is located in between the glamorous towns of Monaco, St Jean Cap Ferrat and Cannes. It is also near other small villages. Famous for enogastronomy, the region is full of Michelin-starred restaurants such as Mirazur, Le Louis XV Alain Ducasse, Chantecler, and Chèvre d’Or etc. Many visit the historical hotels for drinks and food, with favorites being Negresco, Grand Hotel du Cap Ferrat, Hotel de Paris and its American Bar. Côte d’Azur is also dotted with vineyards and wineries, and is known for its rosé wines.

Historically a hotbed for renowned artists, the area also has several contemporary museums dedicated to the works of celebrated artists: one for Henri Matisse, another for Chagall, the Picasso Museum in Antibes and you can even visit Renoir’s house and studio in Cagnes-sur-Mer. Jean Cocteau once wrote that he was born several times – including once in Villefranche, a pastel-hued fishing village. You can stroll through it – or the museum dedicated to his work, in Menton.

The owners also recommend visits to Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild in Cap Ferrat (a pink mansion constructed by Baroness Béatrice de Rothschild, with a formal French garden), and Palais princier de Monaco (an 1191-built Genoese fortress with a tattered history). 

Concerts, music and operas are also popular in the region, and there are several venues whose calendars are worth looking into: the owners recommend Opera de Nice, Opéra Garnier de Monaco and the Nice Jazz Festival. 

LOCATION

Nice, Côté d’Azur, France, closest airport: Nice Côte d’Azur Airport (7.4km)

BEST TIME TO VISIT: The best beach and boating weather is from June-September. Spring and autumn are lovely shoulder seasons with mild weather and fewer crowds. And while quiet, there is a charm to Provence in the winter – and you have the Southern Alps for skiing.
