There is a pay as you go underground car park at the Place du Palais, the entrance is on Rue Alexandre Mari. There is also one on the Cours Saleya, the entrance is on Rue Saint François de Paule. Go to www.plan-nice.org for a map of all car parks in Nice. Free parking in Nice can be difficult to find and public transport is very good so we find it better not to bring the car!
You will find that buying a one week unlimited pass is well worth it. It is very useful to jump on and off trams and buses. Buses will take you to Cannes, Monaco, Eze, Villefranche, Menton Antibes and although a slower option than the SNCF train it works out very cheap! SNCF trains are fast and also good value; they depart from the SNCF station which is signposted from the railway bridge at the bottom of Jean Medicin (a short tram ride from the apartment).
The key to the apartment costs €100 to cut and have to be sent to Paris for cutting as it is a security door, please do not lose them! We will have to charge if they are lost.
It can be windy on occasion in Nice, particularly with the Mistral so please do ensure windows are secured whilst you are out during any winds so they do not slam shut and crack. During hot periods you will notice that the Nicoise keep their shutters closed and windows just open secured on the latch during the day to keep rooms cool and in shade. They often open the lower shutter door for airflow. This also applies at night when in the heat you may wish to have windows open but the shutters shut.
This is not permitted in apartments in the old town but we have installed ceiling mounted whisper fans with lights which are very effective at keeping the room cooler.
We have an internet based TV service that provides a wide range of European channels including Sky, BT and Setanta. This is operated with the black remote control after switching to SAT on the TV.
The apartment is strictly no smoking. There will be a charge made if there is a smell of smoke in the apartment on departure.
