The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Whatever the purpose of your visit or the length of your stay there is plenty to see and do in Nice and the Côte d'Azur. Along the coast Cannes, Monte Carlo and St Tropez are just some of the world famous resorts which speak for themselves. All can be easily reached within 30 minutes by train from the main railway station on Avenue Thiers, just eight minutes walk from the apartment.
Inland are picturesque villages such as Eze with its botanical gardens and Mediterranean views; Grasse famous for its perfumeries and Saint-Paul-de-Vence for its art galleries and cemetry, where artist Marc Chagall is buried. All can be reached by coach from the main bus station, the "Gare routière" on Promenade du Paillon, 15 minutes walk from the apartment.
For guests with a little more time or those looking for something a little different, there are a number of lesser known off the beaten track destinations and activities. Examples include a visit to the Iles de Lérins, a small unspoilt archipelago just off the coast of Cannes, perfect for walkers, or a trip on the Train des Pignes, "taking the slow train" into the mountains and villages behind Nice.
As well as being a beautifully situated coastal resort, Nice has all the cultural attractions of a large town and boasts the greatest number of museums and galleries outside Paris. To help all guests plan their visit whatever its purpose, the owners have left maps and leaflets from the Nice Convention and Visitors Bureau to be given to you upon arrival. Please request them from the keyholder if necessary.
The Bureau's web site can be consulted in advance of your visit at http://www.nicetourism.com/GB/som.html. Here you can find information and links to all Nice's museums, galleries, sites and gardens with lots of practical information on transport, restaurants and how to plan your trip.
The site includes similar information on the towns, villages and tourist sites surrounding Nice with many useful links.
