The old town of Nice is only a leisurely very short walk away with its vibrant markets, exquisite restaurants, and cafe culture. These are also situated on the Rue de France. “Appartement Bord de La Mer”, is only a 20 minute walk from the central train station making it to the attractions of Cannes, St Tropez, Eze, Menton, Antibes, and the glamorous Monte Carlo. St Tropez is best accessed by boat from Nice port to avoid the traffic jams.
Close to all the best restaurants, cafe culture, street entertainers, designer shopping boutiques (like Chanel, Armani, Karen Millen, and many more), famous museums (Matisse etc.) and transport links.
Le Carré d'Or or 'Golden Square' is the elegant section of the pedestrian zone of central Nice, which begins at the Promenade des Anglais and extends to the tree-lined Boulevard Victor Hugo.
Look for street names like Paradis, Alfonse Karr or Longchamp in order to identify this chic quarter of Nice.
The 'Golden Square' is the Mayfair or Park Avenue of Nice, on the gorgeous French Riviera Coast.

A booking confirmation letter and a comprehensive holiday information pack will be sent out immediately. Our aim and vision is to provide, 'You', the guest with the best possible holiday experience and build a long term relationship with our guests.
In fact some of our guests have become our good and dear friends. Our aim is to offer an independent affordable warm & friendly South of France holiday experience of which a Hotel cannot.
We have some awards for this apartment (We would love to give you details of this on request, including references). These are on our own website.
See our owners website for excellent Cooking, Wine & French Language Courses in the Nice area! A truly 'South of France' experience & delight!
Our Contact Rosa offers Nicoise cooking courses in her own home, using organic produce bought from the Cours Salya old town market which you purchase in the Morning with her. She will advise on the produce, what's in season and what's not.
This market and wine cellar tour, along with Nicoise cooking is fantastic and we can arrange this for you. We had a great time, especially sampling our efforts afterwards with several glasses or two, of Rose Bandol and Provencal Wines.
The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Cote d'Azur, the French Riviera is one of the most popular holiday destinations in France, with its perfect beaches, high style of life and a lot of interesting places to visit, this is an ideal holiday region.
This was one of the first resort areas in the world and for a good reason, the Mediterranean coast stretches for miles and is covered with golden-sand and pebbled beaches. Being a health resort area in the 19th century, it was famous with the aristocrats like Queen Victoria, King Edward VII and in the 20th century with artists Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse or Edith Wharton.
The region has a typical Mediterranean climate with hot, sunny summers and dry mild winters perfect for all year round holiday.
Places worth of visiting are: Nice, Hyres, famous Saint-Tropez, Saint-Maxine, Cannes and its film festival, Antibes, Monaco, Monte-Carlo and many others. Saint-Tropez best being accessed by boat from Nice Port to avoid the traffic if considering driving, a train can be taken, but can take many hours.
Nice is a major tourist centre in the southern France, a historical capital of the county and an important port known as well as Lympia port.
Nice is most of all a great place with a lot of entertainment and things to do like shopping, photography, dining in a great restaurants, taking part in festivals, visiting art galleries, admiring the architecture and culture of the city; for those seeking more nature-based holiday we recommend canoeing, visiting wild life sanctuaries and parks, cycling, swimming and of course sun bathing.

"Fantastic get away"
I've set up my business nearly three years ago and not had a break until I found this Apartment in South of France, Nice is gorgeous, feeling a little bit of glamour and de-stressing was achieved. Apartment is set out to accommodate couples and small families, and caters for all. Lovely complex and views/area to die for - THANK YOU for allowing us to stay here. Will recommend and come again

"Excellent central location for beech, town and airport, a real gem."
We enjoyed our stay hugely. Very handy for the beech and also for the town. Easy access to train to visit nearby Monte Carlo, Cannes and Juan les Pins. The flat is very well kept and nicely furnished. The luxury bathroom is a particularly strong feature. Café on the ground floor is excellent for the traditional French petit dejeuner. Also very accessible from Nice airport. Only a short bus ride to very near the front door.
Ciao, grazie per la bella recensione. Siamo vicini alla spiaggia, buoni ristoranti, strada tranquilla, non in città rumorosa vecchia! Ottima posizione, con un collegamento ascensore, aria condizionata e connessione internet wi-fi. Abbiamo incantevoli letti confortevoli e belle porte finestre aperte.
Speriamo di vedervi presto.

"The best apartment in Nice!"
I stayed with my mum for a week and it was such an amazing stay, the Apartment is lovely, cosy, warm welcoming, clean, well maintained and has got all you need on your holiday, even sewing kit, spare memorable foam pillows, and many more.. it just shows that people care and want to make you feel as happy as possible! Great location, close to the beach and train station within 10 min, Old Town 15-20min if you don't get lost. :-)
I love Nice so much and would recommend to everyone, also we did visit Monte Carlo, St-Tropez and Ville Franche. Next time Grasse, Antibes, again Monaco and Eze, which are directly connected by train.
Great food, shops and drinks, Rose wine from Provence is amazing and so cheap to get in the shop! :-) if you want to save money and still want to eat a great dish, go to the market in Old town - best in the morning to get best and local produce of fruit, veg, fish (there is a fish market and big butcher in the old town too everyday), jams, cheese, honey, condiments etc.. and simply cook at home, kitchen is big enough, only thing there is no oven but microwave yes, we didn't cook meals but will cook next time to save a bit of money as eating out is not cheap, homemade pan roasted market fish or steak with local veg will do plus bottle of Rose for 6 euros which you would pay for a glass outside.
Also the kitchen has got good size fridge so you can get plenty fruit and veg. For macaroons lovers I think best ones are from LAC, pistachio and amande are the best.
There are so many lovely things to see..cosy narrow streets, shops, bars, park, beach, parfumerie Fragonard, shopping centre with nearby ZARA, Sephora and many more.
The apartmnet is close to everything you need! Regarding the sea, it is very clean and water is so azure blue with beautiful waves.
I am still returning to my memories from this trip and already plannning next one in 2015!
I hope this helps.
Thank you Richard & family for all your help, support and info and for letting us stay in such a lovely place.
I will be looking forward to my return to you and your lovely apartment in 2015!

"Flat in Nice with all you need that is close to everything."
3 of us enjoyed our stay on the French Riviera by basing ourselves in this very centrally located flat in the La Buffa quarter of Nice. Local bakers, butchers, supermarkets and other shops provided us with everything we needed to have meals at home and otherwise recharge. We walked to everything in Nice and had easy access to transportation to Cannes, Antibes, Eze, Menton and other destinations. The Wi-Fi kept us in touch with folks and news from home. Recommended.

"Great place to stay perfect location"
Very comfortable flat with all you need for a relaxing stay in this beautiful city. Great location very near to the beach and old town. Within walking distance from the train station and bus stops to the airport. Very east to find with all the helpful information and instructions from the owner. would thoroughly recommend and would definitely stay again if back in Nice.

"We felt at home, with Nice and Côte d'Azur outside our door."
Apartment was clean, inviting. We were met by housekeeper/manager, which made everything easy. Always available by phone. Very comfortable sleeping. Excellent wi-if, stove top, shower etc. Very "cool" place. Outstanding location: close to Old Town, one block from Mediterranean and Promenade de Anglais, train and bus. We were able to walk to most everything. On Rue de France itself were an "artisanal" boulangerie, butcher shop, a produce shop, many restaurants. Easy access to St. Paul de Vence, Eze, Antibes. We had a terrific vacation here--both exciting and relaxing.
Thank you for this great review! We work very hard to get it right. We are blessed with an amazing location which offers the guest a true South of France experience in Nizza! The sea and beach is only a one minute walk. The restaurants that locals use are here. The location boasts great transport links, including lots of parking. Our Wi-Fi is fast with Skype to keep in touch and show off with friends, family or work.
Thank you for being our lovely guests.
