About Mary and Michael Furlong
We live and work in our own businesses in Dublin, Ireland and have been coming to France on holidays since our daughters were very young. We fell in love with Nice and the whole Cote D'Azur region when we first visited in 2007 and returned several times before deciding to invest in our own property in the city. We try to get out to Nice a few times every year and never tire of all that it has to offer.
Mary and Michael Furlong purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Mary and Michael Furlong chose Carre d'Or
The second we saw this apartment, we fell in love with it. From the perfect location to the elegant grandeur of the building and the apartment itself. The building has been highlighted as one of the finest examples of the famous Hausmann style of architecture famed throughout the major cities of France from the 19th and early 20 centuries. As a corner apartment, it has an amazing double aspect light filled living room. It has a wonderful sense of space throughout which strikes you immediately when you open the door into an almost 3m wide hallway that runs through the apartment into the living room in front. The second and third bedrooms are off a second hallway which gives a fantastic sense of calm, something which we really appreciate with our three daughters, now teenagers. We completely renovated it when you bought it in 2010 and modernised it while keeping all of the original features such as the ornate plasterwork of the high ceilings and the original parquet flooring. Whenever we return to Nice, we have to pinch ourselves that we own such a magnificent luxurious holiday home.

The Perfect Location for Nice!
If you are looking for a wonderful location with easy access to the beaches of the Mediterranean and an easy walk to Old Nice for a great dinner or some shopping, this is the perfect location for you!
It's extremely clean, well appointed, has all the modern amenities you could want combined with the old class charm of a French villa. Be to the beach in 5 minutes, be to Old Town Nice in 15 minutes, grab some wine and cheese at the market in 5 minutes and even walk to the main train station in less than 25 minutes.
The property manager, Valerie, is a true gem and so easy to work and communicate with. She is professional, courteous, and does a tremendous job of acclimating you to the apartment and Nice itself.
Our next trip to Nice will not be taken unless this gem of an apartment is available to stay.
We loved it and so did our kids.
Thanks so much!
APT in Nice, France
Excellent location to the beach. Short walk to "old Nice". Using Uber the apt is 1 block from the Negresco Hotel...Would definitely stay at this property again!
Nice for Six
The building was lovely, and the apartment was generous in size for six adults. The neighborhood was great and very accessible to restaurants and sites. It was overall a Great location.
The kitchen and bathrooms were adequate.
The living room furniture is in need of replacing, the Beds were uncomfortable, pillows are flat and we could have used more towels.
While we did enjoy our stay and appreciated the location some of the amenities were less than adequate.
A clean, neat and beautiful gem!!
What a wonderful home! Our entire experience was absolutely lovely. This home is so clean and neat and beautifully furnished. Steps away from the Promenade de anglais afforded us access to all that Niece has to offer without having to take any form of transportation. If you are looking for the perfect place to enjoy Niece, this is it!!!!
Thoroughly enjoyed the property. Really great location, and close to all you need in Nice.
The apartment is gorgeous, large, clean, well appointed. Unfortunately we had some outside noise issues, that were a bit bothersome but overall a great vacation.
Location, location, location - Central Nice. This beautifully refurbished apartment is perfectly situated for all that the Riviera and Nice has to offer. The apartment is in the centre of 'The Golden Square', the Carre D'or. Steps away from the famous Negressco, on the Promenade des Anglais, one of the few privately owned palaces in the world that is also classified a National Historic Monument. The world famous palm tree lined Promenade des Anglais itself is perfect for taking a seat, admiring the view, bike hiring or relaxing with the local Nicoise. Carre D'or is also the designer district, home to all the big names as well as plenty of boutiques and artisan food shops. The apartment is a five minute walk from the pedestrianised zone, with its bustling pavement cafés and restaurants. The bus and train station are each a 10 minute walk. This apartment is perfect if you want to be within a fifteen minute radius of all that Nice has to offer and it really is the perfect base to explore the Riviera
