More time travel than holiday! Open the green shuttered windows of this apartment (5 minutes from the sea) and you are looking into the heart and soul of Old Nice, unchanged for 400 years.
Situated on the fourth floor of this authentic and fascinating Nicois building (no lift, of course), the apartment, in Rue du Collet, is light, bright and, above all, peaceful and serene. With windows everywhere, a cooling breeze can be summoned up in an instant.
The apartment has been completely renovated and decorated and all fitments and appliances are new. At the same time care has been taken to maintain original features such as tiled flooring and shutters. The independent kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, hot plates, fridge and all cooking utensils.
In Rue du Collet below you will find the bustling life of shops, boutiques and restaurants. Here you can buy all manner of local food to eat in or take away, every item of clothing imaginable and a bizarre array of produce from the numerous special interest shops that pepper the street. The famous Rue Droite, opposite, consists almost exclusively of art galleries, from one end to the other.
A few minutes away there is the open air market of the Cours Saleya. Here, every day, you will find a wonderful assortment of vegetables, fruits, home made jams, cheeses, olives, breads and pastries. In the evening the Cours Saleya is magically transformed into a glittering array of al fresco restaurants offering every kind of cuisine until the early hours of the morning. When you have finished your meal why not stroll along the Promenade des Anglais and watch the sun set over the beautiful Baie des Anges?
Walk through the Old Town (Vieux Nice) with its maze of winding streets, little restaurants and cafes, tiny shops, art galleries and little squares for al fresco dining. From the apartment you can stroll the narrow cobbled streets of this mediaeval town and visit the many specialist shops selling everything from a bewildering array of cheeses to locally made sweets and perfumes. In Place Rosetti 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.
