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.
The building is situated half way down the Promenade des Anglais opposite Poincare beach and about a 10 minute walk from the famous Negresco and Florida beach. Whilst you'll need to stroll into the centre of town, it's certainly accessible. It will take you fifteen minutes to walk along the Promenade to get to the hub of the pedestrian zone with its hundreds of restaurants and boutiques surrounding Place Magenta.
It is a 30 minute walk from the apartment to Place Massena and the Old Town. Should you prefer, there are regular buses. The area still has some restaurants, bars, and shops less than a five minute walk away.
