Nice, French Riviera (Cote d'Azur)

A century ago, the French Riviera had become the most stylish winter holiday spot for European royalty and aristocrats, particularly the British, who journeyed to Menton, Nice and Cannes for the gentle climate.  Today it remains a cosmopolitan lively place to be; hosting 50% of the worlds super yachts in its harbours; and the highest numbers of art galleries and museums outside Paris.

The French Riviera is the perfect holiday destination all year round. Nice offers the very rare possibility of going skiing in the Alps in the morning and spending the afternoon on a beautiful Mediterranean beach.   The public transport system is excellent, and it only costs 1 Euro to travel to Monaco, St Tropez, Antibes, and Cannes.  Italy is 30 minutes away, and Corsica is accessible by ferry from Nice Port. The nearby hill villages “villages perches’ are amazingly scenic and dramatic and well worth a visit.

A bright apartment with lovely views near the sea

This apartment is in the ideal holiday location in the heart of old Nice. Situated on the corner of Rue Prefecture this 2 bedroom bright apartment has delightful views to mountains and church towers from its double aspect lounge windows. The apartment has been newly refurbished retaining the authentic feel with original features including high ceilings, tomette flooring, fireplace and windows/shutters. It is decorated with high quality stylish English and French furniture. It is on the fourth floor and so benefits from the most sunshine above street level.

Only steps from the beach and ‘Cours Saleya’, the open air daily market where you can buy fresh fish, flowers and fruit and veg – you are also within two minutes walk to tram and bus stops for easy day trips as well as electric cars and Nice Bikes to rent by the hour. The boutique shops and best restaurants are just outside your door.

The Old Town is full of windy, pedestrian streets stacked with cafes and bistros, typical French boulangeries and superb restaurants. There is plenty to occupy you here; sauntering down the Promenade des Anglais; relaxing on the beach.

The apartment is decorated with quality stylish English and French furniture.  The main bedroom has a King sized bed and the 2nd bedroom has two single beds.  The lounge has 2 large sofas (one of which is a double sofabed) – and a dining table which will seat 6.  The kitchen is fully equipped including dishwasher, microwave and washing machine.

Being the Old Town, and a listed historic building, there is no lift. However the steps to the fourth floor are fairly shallow and it is well worth the effort to get so close to the beach, the Sunny views and the most desirable cafes, restaurants and bars of Nice.
