The French Riviera - Cote d'Azur region
Cote d'Azur France
The Côte d'Azur, also called the French Riviera, has been known for its chic elegance and high living for well over a century. Its hey day was during the 1950s and '60s, when anyone who was anyone seemed to have moved here and bought property along its shores. It's still a playground for the rich and famous, especially at stylish resorts such as Nice, Cannes, St-Tropez, and of course the epitome of extravagance and wealth, Monte Carlo – but less well-heeled visitors find plenty to entertain them too. Also you will find the perfumed streets of Grasse, the balmy beaches of Menton and the history stained cobbles of Fréjus & St-Raphaël to explore.
The city of Nice is located on the French Riviera in Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. Blessed by a sunny, temperate climate, Nice attracts visitors from around the world. Among its many attractions are its beautiful beaches, lovely seaside promenade, interesting museums, famous city landmarks and other tourist attractions. Nice is a major air transportation hub in Europe. Several low-cost airlines offer frequent flights to the Nice Cote d'Azur Airport from London, Paris and other cities. A high-speed rail service operates between Paris and Nice.
Public transportation includes a tram system, ferry service and transit service. Day excursions are available from Nice to Antibes, Juan-les-Pins, Monte Carlo, Cannes and to other towns.
Refined, elegant and Belle Epoque
The classy Musiciens quarter is as refined as they come. Made up of Rue Verdi, Rue Mozart et al. Its buildings shares many characteristics with those in the Carre d'Or area over the Boulevard Victor Hugo.
In terms of architecture this is a very different area from the Old Town, the Port, or Mont Boron. The building stock here is mostly made up of apartments dating from the prestigious belle epoque, bourgeois and Art Deco era.
Most of the buildings have large windows, wooden floors and architectural flourishes that are indicative of their time. Musiciens is less ostentatious, quieter and a little less expensive than the Carre d'Or five minutes away.
You wont find any night clubs in Musiciens - they don't do "flashy" in this neighbourhood, apart from the diamond rings worn by the conservative old grand dames who seem to populate this area in numbers. There is a certain elegance about Musiciens that is promulgated, it seems, by the discerning residents who live here. Although the Old Town and the beaches are only a ten to fifteen minute walk away.
The area has a well-known selection of quiet, elegant local restaurants habitated by the well-healed residents of this very chic area.
Apartments are mostly on the large side, a legacy of the general affluence of the area when it was constructed in the 1920s and 1930s.
