The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
The Côte d’Azur lies between the mountains peaks of the Alps and the shimmering turquoise Mediterranean. It has been the playground of Europe since the 19th century when it became a popular holiday destination for the rich and famous. It remains to this day, one of the most sought after destinations in France and is ideal for family and group holidays as well as romantic city breaks.
Agreeably named, Nice is the capital of the Alpes-Maritimes. It is a city that stays alive and active all year round. There is plenty to see and do and something to suit all tastes.
With approximately 300 days of sunshine, it is renowned for its long hot summers and cooling sea breezes which help to maintain a pleasant temperature.
Beautifully situated, between Cannes and Menton, Nice offers easy access by train or bus allowing you to explore many other interesting towns along this famous coastline. Day trips to Monaco, Italy and some of the surrounding hilltop Provençal villages are all possible. A day trip to the ski slopes of Auron and Isola 2000 during the winter months is also feasible.
Situated in the prestigious 'Quartier Musiciens' the apartment is perfectly located for easy access to the beaches on the Promenade, the main train station and the bustling shops on Jean Médecin - all of which are within a short stroll.
This quiet residential area named after famous musicians, such as Mozart and Verdi, is filled with authentic turn of the century buildings and wide boulevards, a delight to walk around and explore.
The apartment is a 5 minute walk from the Promenade were you can relax and soak up the sun or spend a leisurely breakfast or lunch at one of the many seaside restaurants. There are luxury sun loungers and parasols for hire on the beach where you can soak up the sun or try some of the water sports available during the summer months.
The pedestrian area of rue de France with its many street cafes and the main shopping street of Nice, Jean Medecin are close by (5 minutes walk). Meander through the enchanting old town (only a 10 mins stroll) with its typical French market in the Cours Saleya and interesting shops selling all manner of local produce and Provençal gifts.
For those whose interests lie particularly in culture, explore the many museums and art galleries in town including the Matisse Museum, Chagall Museum and the renowned Museum of Contemporary Art.

"Well-appointed apartment in an excellent central location and secure neighborhood"
The apartment met all our needs, being conveniently located for rail and bus access.With supermarkets and a superb patisserie nearby, and a well-appointed kitchen, in-house cooking was a comfortable option when not dining at some of the nearby restaurants. Ready access to the tram made visits to the old town for antiques, dining and just looking a very enjoyable experience. This was our second visit to Nice and was even better than the first with "Cantique" as our base. Kate's help in managing the rental and her introductions to the apartment and local knowledge were most appreciated.

"Good sleep guaranteed"
This apartment is highly functional. The electric venetian blind system works great and you can easily get the apartment totally dark. In the morning it's great to open the blinds and let the lig… More

Great location, near train station which served as departure point for Riviera sightseeing. Walking distance to most local sites of interest. The apartment was clean, comfortable and well provisioned. Kate was very organized in a personal orientation and with her "Bible" containing useful info for use in the apartment and for tourism. I was not thrilled with costly and inconvenient prepaid wire transfers rather than use of credit card was a negative. Washing machine not great, particularly the drying function. Otherwise we would give this property a strong recommendation. N. Axelrad

"great place to stay in Nice"
A really great place to stay in Nice, ideally situated and very well furnished and equipped.
It was our second visit to Cantique and every time we had a great holiday.
Besides the quality of the apartment and the charm of the city and surroundings, we have to mention the professional services of Kate Muriel, who provide us all the information we need for a complete experience of French Riviera.
We will definitely return.

"Great apartment in lovely Nice"
In June 2012 we made our third visit to Nice, staying at the charming 'Cantique' apartment on a self catering basis. We were met at the apartment by the lovely Kate of 'ServiceRiviera' who, yet again, was welcoming, very helpful and enthusiastic in offering quality information about the rich cultural, geographical and social aspects of Nice and the surrounding area. The apartment is ideally suited to couples who appreciate peace and quiet, but appreciate the diversity of a vibrant, relaxed city atmosphere. It is situated in a locked and gated block of apartments just back from the lovely boulevard Hugo. It is well designed, equipped with all you could need, and is tastefully and simply furnished. It has a large balcony that extends across the living room and bedroom and helps relate a nice sense of 'space.' It is immaculately presented and very clean, and we were impressed with the attention to small detail such as quality bed linen, free wi-fi and even beach equipment.
The apartment is ideally situated being equidistant from buses,trains and beach which are only a ten minute walk away, though you can catch a modern tram within a few minutes on the impressive Boulevard Medicin. Restaurants, bakeries and shops are minutes away.
Nice is a lovely place with a rich and diverse cultural history, yet simultaneously vibrant, with a relaxed nod to modernity. You can take a bus ride along the coast to Menton (on the Italian border), or Monacco, Cannes, Antibes and a host of charming sea-side villages for the princely sum of one Euro! Alternatively you can escape into the hills and mountains where the landscape can be breathtakingly beautiful.
The weather was hot when we were there, so it was always a real pleasure , after the heat and events of the day, to open the door of the apartment and feel refreshed by the excellent air conditioning. So, all in all, another lovely stay in both the city and the apartment. We look forward to returning next year.
One final thing: we would like to express our thanks to both Kate and Mr and Mrs Mulligan (the owners) for their sympathetic and kind actions when we encountered a personal problem that affected an earlier booking. It is refreshing to know that, although 'letting' is a business, human beings come first, and the quality of care and thought offered was greatly appreciated. Thank you
Thank you both for your glowing review!!. It was lovely to see you again and do hope you will return for another visit sometime soon.

"Great location & lovely apartment"
We stayed here in May 2012 and found it to be a great apartment. The bedroom is a little small but sufficient. The kitchen is fully equipped and there are about 3 English TV channels which were handy… More
Many thanks for taking the time to add a little comment - so glad you enjoyed your stay at the apartment and we look forward to having you back here again sometime soon
