Local facilities: Around the corner from the apartment (corner of Rue Rossini and Rue Gambetta) the restaurant L'Occitanie served great food at reasonable prices. It's increasingly popular so be sure to reserve your table. The Old Town market is a must - the flower market is open every day except Mondays when an antiques market takes over.
One of the best ways to see the Riviera is by train. Visit Monaco, Antibes or Villefranche or the Friday morning market in Ventimillia just across the border into Italy. You could also hop on the train to the lemon festival in nearby Menton in February or the Cannes film festival and Monaco Grand Prix in May.
The nearest ski resort is 60 km from Nice at GREOLIERES (1400 to 1800 m)
Restaurants, shops and markets are five minutes walk. If you know the Negresco, one of the world’'s most famous hotels, then your walk to the beach takes you past this landmark.
The apartment is in the heart of Musiciens, a part of central Nice with street names such as Rossini, Verdi and Mozart. This part of Nice was built in the thirties and the apartment is in one of many art deco buildings sprinkled around this district. The apartment is close to the beautiful Alsace-Lorraine Square, with its statues, wonderful trees and great facilities for kids.
The nearby Rialto Cinema (Rue Rivoli) shows films in English - the cheap night is every Monday. For museum lovers, admission is free on the first Sunday of each month. Three or four day passes are also available for seven of the city's largest museums.
Local activities include fishing, wind-surfing, mountain biking, diving, surfing, swimming, tennis, walking, sailing, cycling, golf, water skiing, roller blading on the Promenade des Anglais.
