The French Riviera - Cote d'Azur region
The French Riviera or Cote D'Azur as also known is a magical place with so much diversity on offer. Apart from the glamour, champagne lifestyle, and sumptuous yachts - this is only skimming the surface. Where else can you have the extravagance in winter of skiing in the morning and walking by the sea in the afternoon? Explore the beautiful coastal landscapes dotted with small beaches, jagged rock formations and incredible sparkling azure mediterranean which can be seen by car, train, bus, cycling or even walking. If you can tear yourself away from the views then look inland and you will more than like see pretty hilltop villages perched high and proud. These sunkissed and historical hill towns are brimming with culture and history.
Take time to appreciate the magnificent architecture of the Belle Epoque, Bourgois and Art Deco buildings to the Italian influenced buildings of the older quarters - colourful buildings with their pretty colourful wooden shutters. Visit the Picasso museum in Antibes, shop till you drop in Cannes, take a boat to St. Tropez, visit the Palace in Monaco, walk the enchanting path around Cap Ferrat, enjoy Sunday brunch in Eze, make your own French perfume in Grasse, explore the many galleries of St. Paul de Vence, visit the vineyards of Bellet and feel at home in Nice. And if you really want to live like a local then playing petanque (type of bowls played mostly by the older/retired generation) and drink pastis (anise-flavoured liqueur and aperitif ).
Nice is a warm, vibrant and fascinating city with everything to offer the visitor with its beaches, restaurants, art galleries, night life and museums. Vieux Nice (old town) is so charming with lots of pretty cobbled streets lined with shops, bakeries, restaurants concocting delicious smells.
If you haven't been to Nice before then you are in for a treat. Nice is a small vibrant city with an old town and new town. It oozes charm and is incredible picturesque with it's pretty coloured buildings, monuments, azure coastline so bring your camera. Nice really does have everything to offer and I guess that's why tourists keep returning.
Nice has one of the most famous coastlines on the Cote d'Azur, the Baie des Angles. Surrounded by hills and mountains, Nice has a wonderful climate all year round.The main reason holiday makers choose to stay in this area is the proximity to the beach and Promenade but also the stunning views of the azure sea.
There is a superb selection of local shops, patisseries and small supermarkets nearby. It is just a few minutes walk to the Promenade des Anglais, and several private beaches where a sun bed and parasol can be hired on a daily basis - there are also public beaches if you just want to enjoy the beach for an hour or so without paying sun lounger fees.
Place de Massena is the main central square which lies between the old and the new town. The Old Town is a maze of narrow streets, squares, little restaurants and fascinating shops. Visits to the Antiques Market (Monday) and the weekday flower and vegetable markets are not to be missed. The Nice Carnival in February is spectacular, as is the summer Jazz festival with top acts. During summer Nice has always something special going on, don't be surprised if you see some fireworks as the Major of Nice likes nothing better than fireworks to celebrate and event.
This apartment is located in the New Town but is just 4 minutes walk into the old Town (Vieux Nice) where you will find the famous Cours Saleya flower market, also offering fresh produce and local favourites such as fruit, vegetable, cheese, olives, soaps, and flowers from early morning until midday. The wide sweep of the Baie des Anges is visible through the arches of the old town walls. The cobbled streets of Vieux Nice (old town) are alive with bustling restaurants, cafes, museums which are free, art galleries, theatres, jazz bars, magnificent baroque churches and little shops selling delicious Nicoise specialities and artisan wares. Just beyond the Cours Saleya you will find the famous Promenade des Anglais and the long stretch of beaches both private and public. Enjoy the many pretty plazas - Place Rossetti where you can treat yourself to one of the best Ice Creams at 'Fenocchio's', the spacious Place Garibaldi, lined with a choice of bars and eateries and Place Francois for the daily fish market
For a panoramic overview of Nice take the steps to the Colline du Chateau which sits on top of a hill between the Port and the Old Town and offers stunning views over the rooftops and Baie des Anges. Bring your camera as is a very popular vantage point for that postcard view. There are only the ruins of the Chateau remaining at the top, but you can also find a lovely park area with a choice of two cafes. If you prefer to avoid the steps up then you can also take the little white tourist train from the Promenade, or you can walk, cycle or use the lift.
Public transport is easy and reasonably priced.The No. 98 airport bus runs from the airport and along the Promenade des Anglais before turning towards Place Massena and along the Promenade du Paillon son to the Port. There is a good bus services to all the surrounding local towns hilltop villages or take the train if you prefer.

"Excellent old town location"
We had a great stay at the apartment. The location is perfect for exploring old town, port area, and catching buses and trains. It is also literally a block from the Med. It was very comfortable and had everything needed for a comfortable stay. The only caveat we would add is that it's a lot of stairs to climb. If you're ok with the stairs it is a great place to stay. Roni was very helpful as well.

"Perfect week in Nice"
Excellent location, beautiful apartment - definitely worth the colossal climb (96 steps!) Roni was the perfect host so felt very at home, only wish that we could have stayed longer. Would definitely stay again.
