Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
'Le Nice' is a two-bedroom air conditioned apartment on the fourth floor (with lift) of an iconic 1960's block.Central for all the facilities of Nice it is also a tranquil location with views over the city and hills, and a glimpse of the sea.
Sleeps 4 in 2 double bedrooms with 1 double and 2 single beds. The large living room has French doors onto the terrace which enjoys wide views over the city and the hills beyond. There is a fully equipped kitchen. A designated parking space is provided in the gated private car park.
The apartment block is located in the Baumettes district, just West of the Negresco Hotel. It is a few steps from the Museé des Beaux Arts, and less than 10 minutes walk to the beach, the Promenade des Anglais - easy walking, cycling, or in-line skating for several kilometres in both directions - and the Rue de France with its shops, bars and restaurants. Don't miss enjoying a drink or a meal at one of the many beach restaurants too!
Shoppin is plentiful - there are Boulangeries for your morning croissants and baguettes, beautifully decorated cakes and Nicois specialities such as Pissaladiere; a number of green-grocers for fruit and veg; butchers and 'traiteurs' who sell pre-prepared dishes. For all other needs you have several supermarkets very near by, mostly open till 8.00 p.m. and on Sunday mornings.
A short walk along the sea-front Promenade takes you to the Cours Saleya market and the bustling 'old town' where you will enjoy being part of Niçois life.The 'Cours Saleya' - the famous flower market hosts the 'Marche Provencal', with all manner of local products and delicacies, and a superb range of eateries and places to sit in the sun and watch the crowds pass by. On Mondays there is a huge antiques market which gives a good impression of life in olden days in Provence.
At the Port of Nice where luxury yachts tie up and the ferries leave for Corsica you can find a variety of shorter trips up and down the coast.
Nice boasts a wonderful Carnival in February, with colourful floats and a 'Battle of flowers'. Or for music lovers try the jazz festival in July, recently moved down from Cimiez to the centre of Nice! The Riviera has long been a haunt of and inspiration to artists, and there are numerous large and small galleries and museums in Nice and in the surrounding towns.
Good transport links – including buses at the flat rate of €1 to anywhere in the Alpes Maritimes! - connect Nice with the surrounding resorts and interesting hinterland of Eastern Provence. Vence and St. Paul are favourite haunts of the artists; and Grasse is the centre of the Provencal perfume industry. If you come by car you will be able to explore the coast and countryside of SE France, enjoying Mimosa in the Spring and Lavender in summer time.

The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Nice is a ‘City by the Sea’, the original tourist destination and now also the fifth largest city in France. Its visitors come from all over the world creating a cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Nice's charm comes from its exceptional climate as well as its beauty. Sheltered by the Alpes Maritimes and warmed by the Mediterranean the average temperature ranges from 27° in summer to 13° in winter. Together with 11 hours of sunshine in summer (5 in winter) its the light in Nice that brought so many artists here – and their legacy remains a part of Nice’s attraction.
Its architectural heritage reflects its history as a favourite winter resort during the 19th and early 20th century – and then its transformation into an all year round resort in the current day. Nice is also a city of art and culture and after Paris, has the most museums in France. The city is animated at night as well as in the day especially in the summer with the Nice Jazz Festival. In February the Nice carnival brings colour and vitality to the streets both day and night, with numerous processions including illuminated night-time parades and the flower "war" (Battaille des Fleurs) on the Promenade des Anglais.
The Cours Saleya hosts the daily flower market where you can also find fruit and vegetables in the mornings and eat in the centre from lunch time onwards. In the evening there is a market where local artists and craft workers sell charming knick knacks – a great place to hunt for gifts and souvenirs. Other markets to explore include the ‘Marche Brocante’ now held on the Place Garibaldi, and the books and prints market; of course like every French city Nice also has its ‘Marché des Puces'! Each quarter in Nice is alive with markets, boutiques and restaurants making the whole city a lively place to visit.
Some of the local dishes to savour include Pissaladière (onion, anchovy and olive tart), the vegetable and tuna sandwiches known as Pan Bagnat, the Salade Niçoise or the famous Ratatouille (tomatoes eggplant and zucchini squash stew). Try ‘Soca’ a pancake made with Chick Pea flour – and in the winter you can find ‘oursins’ a form of prickly sea food and a great delicacy!
There is a large selection of nightlife for all styles and tastes in Nice, mainly centred around the bars and restaurants of Vieux Nice (old Nice) and the pedestrian zone (off place Massena). The general ambiance is a relaxed informal environment with many Pubs and clubs catering for an international clientele. And 2 casinos on the Promenade des Anglais which present a range of shows and entertainments.
And if you ever tire of Nice itself the city has great transport links enabling you to visit up and down the Riviera coast – Cannes, Antibes, Menton amongst others; go to Italy for the day! Or up into the hills behind nice to visit some of the ancient ‘perched villages’, explore the perfumeries of Grasse, and the art at St Paul de Vence!
The ‘Baumettes’ area is located just West of central Nice and retains numerous ‘belle époque’ villas. It is blessed with numerous trees as well as the small park around the Museé des Beaux Arts. Up a small hill from the Rue de France we have views over Nice in several directions and catch the summer breezes.
The Rue de France is partly a pedestrian zone running from Place Massena, roughly parallel to the seaside. It is full of shops, including some exclusive clothing boutiques, restaurants and cafes with outdoor terraces - a great place to sit and watch the world go by, while you eat or drink.
The Promenade des Anglais stretches about 7 km around the Baie des Anges, a favourite for leisurely "promenades", jogging, cycling and roller skating, or just sitting and watching the sea - and the sunbathers on the beach.
The beaches of Nice, and along the coast to Antibes, are shingle (smooth stones). From Antibes-Juan-les-Pins to Cannes (and also West at VilleFranche), the beaches are sand. It's obvious which you need for building sand castles, but many people actually prefer the grit-free shingle beaches. In Nice there is a good arrangement where the beach is equally divided between the ‘private’ beaches, where you pay to use a chair, umbrella, towels etc – and you can also just go and have a drink or a meal – and the public areas where everyone brings their own. So there’s plenty of space for all!
For other forms of exercise Baumettes is within easy walking distance of the ‘tennis club de Nice’; there is a public swimming pool at Magnan, a short walk away; and you can hire bikes and skates to ride along the Promenade and further afield.
