The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
The area known as the Cote d'Azur has been an inspiration for artists and writers for more than a century. Add to this its appeal as a winter haven for Europe's royals and aristocracy and you have an idea of what has made this place so special. The extravagances of the past have left a legacy of opulent buildings and beautiful parks that one can never tire of.
From Cannes to Menton there are many wonderful attractions, all within easy reach. The pretty town of Antibes, with its huge marina and walled town, includes the Picasso Museum amongst its attractions.
The walled cliff top village of Eze will give you access to breath taking views along the Cote. Monaco with its castle casino and Grand Prix is an attraction not to be missed. Menton, St Paul de Vence, Grasse, Villefranche are all within easy reach by bus or local train.
The Port dates back to the middle of the 18th century, nestled below the hilltop ruins of an ancient Chateau the port is surrounded by rows of bright coloured buildings, all looking out on a vibrant marina, home to humble fishing boats and jaw dropping super yachts. Around the Port are some great places to eat, ranging from cafes to notable restaurants.
The port is a busy and noisy neighbourhood with boats and ferries coming and going throughout the day and there is always lots going on. Over the past 3 years there have been significant improvements to this area including new, wider paving areas and improved lighting. As part of this on-going schedule of improvements, there are currently works being carried out on the opposite side of the port to build an underground car park. At present in high season, parking can prove to be a little more difficult than usual. This work is due to end by May 2014. Followed by the commencement of works for the arrival of line 2 of the tram network to be completed in 2017.
A short walk from the port, Nice has a bustling Old Town, a maze of narrow shaded streets where locals and tourists are drawn to the diverse shops and restaurants. Between the sea and the Old Town is the Cours Saleya, a colourful fruit and flower market, six days a week, on a Monday it is an antiques market.
For those who like a stroll there are walks along the rugged rocks to Cap de Nice, in the other direction the Promenade des Anglais will give you a chance to watch the world and its dog go by. For culture lovers Nice boasts a beautiful opera house, a contemporary art museum and museums devoted to both Chagal and Matisse.
Not far away the Villas Euphresi and Kerylos give you a chance to visit the eccentric dreams made reality by wealthy residents of the past. There are day cruises from the port to Cannes, St Tropez and Monaco.

The view from this apartment is better than any view that the Multi Million pound Yachts below have. I must admit the stairs are not a first good impression but the view, (I.e. The second impression )… More

"Lovely apartment, beautiful view"
We stayed in this apartment for 4 nights in September and wished it could have been longer. There were a lot of stairs to climb but the view was wonderful and well worth it. The apartment itself had everything we needed for our stay including a washing machine and a hairdryer and we were given lots of information about how things worked and where things were in the local area both from the information we were sent before we arrived and from the apartment manager who met us there. It was about a 10-15 minute walk to the old town or to the Promenade des Anglais and the Port is lovely at night.

"Price is what you pay. Value is what you get."
Impossible to fault, easy to praise.
If you're looking for something that little bit different and upmarket, this is the place to stay.
Perfect location coupled with first class facilities, believe me, it does not get any better than this.
Stunning harbour view from one of the two balconies means you do not have to search the city for your favourite 'morning cafe.' Simply visit one of the many excellent bakers close to the property, select your fresh breakfast, return home, pour your coffee and watch Nice come to life from the best seats in town - no other cafe in Nice offers a better view.
With plenty on offer, Nice is the perfect destination for a longer break and first time visitors can get to know the city by either simply hiring a bike from one of the numerous bike-stations or by jumping on to the sightseeing bus which offers a 75 minute introduction to the area for only e20.
Eating out may appear expensive, but venture away from the tourist traps and your exploring will be rewarded.
For those keen to provide their own food, the nearby supermarket stocks every type of fresh produce you will need - and please don't ignore the selections of local ham and cheese.
The fit and active will no doubt make the most of the Promenade des Anglais whose wide stretches are tailor-made for joggers and cyclists.
Heading in the other direction, it is possible to walk to Villefranche-sur-Mer by heading along the coastal path before walking up some steep steps to join the main road from where you will be rewarded with some breathtaking views of the coastline before dropping down into Villefranche. This walk is probably a shade over four miles but you are able to make the return journey by bus if you'd rather not walk back.
Ignore the horror stories about the expense involved in visiting Monaco, we travelled there and back by public transport, enjoyed a sandwich and coffee each and still brought some change back from e20. As with everything, research is the key.
Finally, for a slice of history try and locate the main recruting office for the Legion Etrangere, but be careful not to sign on the dotted line...
Will we return? Yes, without doubt.

"Beautiful apartment in wonderful location"
The accommodation is spacious and tastefully furnished. There are wonderful views over the port from the large living room and the sunny balcony at the front. The other balcony off the bathroom gets the morning sun and was great for breakfasts with a view of the hills..
There are pleasant walks in both directions and it's easy to get to the old town on foot. There are plenty of buses which stop nearby so we were able to plan some interesting days out. The local shops are excellent and we put together some good meals in the modest kitchen.
The only downside is the flight of stairs up to the 4th floor.
