The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur / Alpes-Maritimes region
Nice has truly one of the best micro climates year round. Lots of sunshine and blue skies, even in January and February. During the day you can wander around dressed like it is summer in early Spring and late Autumn/Fall, it cools down in the evening where you would need a jacket in off season, but the summer months are glorious, hot and sunny with lovely cooling breezes from the sea. The bay of Nice (the baie des Anges) is spectacular, day or night, but at night all lit up it is called the "queens necklace" as it resembles a diamond necklace with all the lights along the coast road.
The history of Nice has much to offer with its original ownership being Italian, the architecture has the beautiful colouring of the Cote d'Azur, with incredible lighting reflecting from the pastel shades of the buildings in Old Town. Nice has many fine museums, art galleries and great antique fairs at the Cours des Saleys outdoor market, as well as many outdoor activities such as jogging, hiking, biking, walking, swimming, sailing, fishing, and even skiing in the winter months a short one hour drive away.
Fashion in Nice is incredible, so for the ladies, make sure to make time for some local shopping, the prices are great and there are some truly one of a kind finds in the many boutiques in the Alphonse Karr area, as well as the larger boulevard of Avenue Jean Medecin. Great buys in wines and local delicacies to bring home, or enjoy in your apartment or dining alfresco picnic style on the beach.
The Nice / Promenade des Anglais area
Carnevale in February is a fabulous way to kick start Spring. Days are gloriously sunny and warm with the colourful floats of flowers and costumed gentry lining the Promenade des Anglais, and finishing in the evening with a spectacular firework display on the Promenade des Anglais. No need to leave home you can watch this from your balcony on the Promenade or join the crowds in the action.
Great museums in Nice and nearby Antibes, and for those of you who like a little lady luck, Monte Carlo is a short train ride or drive away. Visit Antibes for the beautiful port and old town, and even go inland to Provence for the great outdoor market at Aix in Provence, easily accessible by local coach, or by car. Nice has a great opera, and is a hive of cultural activity. Check it all out by stopping in at the local Tourism Office on the Promenade des Anglais to get up to minute details of what is happening during your stay.

Had great communication with owner who provided very useful information. The apartment was perfect for us right on the Promenade Anglais. Buses were very handy as was a supermarket. We would love to return one day.
thank you so much for your lovely review - I hope we will see you back on another holiday to either the south of France or Tuscany!

We stay every summer in another apartment from the same owner/site but in 2010 it was fully booked so we rented this. The apartment is in a nice location, and it's easy to walk to the center of Nice.
Overall the vacation has been very pleasant and probably we will go back.
So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Vague Blu - and that you are a return visitor to this beautiful part of the world - we hope to see you back again at either Vague Blu or one of our other properties on the French Riiviera or Tuscany - thank you!

A nice studio within walking distance to Nice town centre (25 min- 30 min) and its old town. It is on the 4th floor of a well maintained building right on Nice's famous Promenade Des Englais.
The sea view is second to non. I love the fact that my son and I would go out for a swim in the beach which is only a stone throw infront of the apartment and get waved back by my wife from the balcony for breakfast
The bus stops are close to the apartment so are off street parking
It is no surprise that I have rented this apartment three times over the last years
So pleased to hear you enjoyed your time at Vague Blu and took advantage of all that the city of Nice has to offer - the beaches being only one of its' many assets, but an excellent one at that with such close proximity to the apartment itself. We hope to see you back on another vacation in either Nice or Tuscany!
