Apartment by the sea in the Old Town of Nice (Rue St Gaetan)
The Cote d'Azur
In Nice you are at the heart of the Cote d'Azur. From there you can take a short bus ride to the cliff-hanging village of St Paul de Vence to visit galleries or to picturesque Villefranche with its sandy beach, idyllic harbour, boats and yachts.
Why not take the ferry for a day trip to Corsica?
Take the train along the coast past Menton and Monaco to Italy following the coast with its blue and azure sparkling seas.
There are mountains for skiing and picturesque villages for sightseeing, wining and dining.
Whether you want to stay put or explore, Nice is the perfect base.
Nice and the Old Town
Whatever you require from a holiday Nice provides it in abundance. You can sunbathe on the beach (a few minutes away), walk, cycle or rollerblade along the famous promenade des Anglais (all 5km of it!).
For museums you are spoilt for choice - Musee Dufy, Musee Matisse, Musee Marc-Chagall etc.
For opera and concerts there is the world famous Nice Opera House, just 2 minutes from the apartment.
Something always seems to be happening in Nice. There are year round exhibitions, concerts and festivals. On an international scale there is the jazz festival in July and the famous Nice Carnival in February.
Walk through the Old Town with its maze of winding streets, little restaurants and cafes, tiny shops, galleries and little squares for al fresco eating.
From the apartment you can stroll through the narrow cobbled streets of this mediaeval town and visit the many specialist shops selling everything from cheeses to locally made sweets and perfumes (the renowned perfume shop, maison de la Lavande, is next door to the apartment building).
In Place Rossetti treat yourself to an ice cream from the finest ice cream specialist in the whole of France and sit and watch the world go by.
