The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Nice provides an ideal base to explore the whole of the Alpes-Maritimes, whether it is along the coast or into the mountains, and most of it is easily accessible by public transport using the train or the excellent bus network. The train ride eastwards towards the Italian border via Monte Carlo and Menton gives the most spectacular views of the coast and with none of the traffic problems. And westwards, Cannes and Antibes are less than an hour away. For something a bit different, try the Chemin de Fer de Provence, a small-guage railway that takes you right into the heart of the mountains.
If you want to drive, why not try the Auto-Bleu? This is a new system of electric cars run by Nice Council, with a depot close by the apartment. This will enable you to explore the many small hill towns around the area, the most popular being St Paul de Vence and Mougins, home of Matisse, Picasso and others.
Nice has something for everyone. In the summer it draws crowds to the beach, but the climate makes it a great all year round resort. And it is a great city to wander around and explore.
The Musiciens quarter where the apartment is situated was built at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth centuries with many elegant squares and belle époque architecture, which lead down to the Promenade and the iconic Hotel Negresco - a major Nice landmark. The old quarter beneath the castle has quite a different flavour and is an endless place to explore with many small shops and excellent restaurants. And if you want some peace, the Monastery, Matisse Museum and Roman remains at Cimiez, a hill above Nice, will provide it.
But most people find the Promenade des Anglais irresistible, either for some exercise or simply to people watch...

"A Wonderful Place to Stay"
We arrived fairly late evening and we were met within a short while by George (Pat. And Goerge are the caretakers) who had fresh bread and milk. He showed us the flat and the fridge was also laden wit… More
I am glad that you enjoyed the stay in our apartment and the welcome by Pat. The point you make about the bed is well taken and we are in the process of renewing it this summer. Thank you also for your helpful recommendations about restaurants and things to do in Nice that I am sure will be useful to other visitors to the flat.

"Beautiful apartment, so organised and very comfortable"
The apartment was beautifully furnished and even had wifi and digital tv, not that we stayed in but the 2012 Olympics were on!! The old fashioned lift to the forth floor was actually a sweet novelty and very French. The location was perfect as the main trainline was 2 blocks north, the beach 5 blocks south and the main shopping street which was fab was under 10 stroll east. We travelled with an 8 yr old and had no problems, would definatly stay again.
