See 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'Azure, 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.

"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.

"A fantastic apartment in a beautiful city"

A beautiful, light and spacious apartment in the heart of Nice; just a stones throw from the beach, the old town and the famous Cours Saleya Fruit and Flower market. The aparmtent is perfectly located in the very heart of this fabulous city. You could spend weeks here and never become bored. Its pedestrianised narrow lanes are teemed with restaurants, bars and pavement cafes, alongside quaint boutique.

The apartment is in a architecturally stunning building. The main rooms are bright and airy, with large windows that allow light to flood in. The apartement comes well resources with cooking equipment, additional bedding and has the added bonus of a dvd player and wifi - which made keeping in touch with family very easy whilst away.

This was the perfect apartment for our week away - highly reccomended.

Yes we have a central location close to good restuarants, French Markets, good train and cheap bus routes, and a fab beach!
Thank you

"Location, Location!"

We found Appartement Bord de la Mer to be completely suitable for our needs. Having never been to Nice or the south of France, we wanted to be close to everything. This apartment is in a great location for convenience and access to the promenade d'anglais, pedestraian streets, shops, cafes etc.

Nice has it all! We have many guests return year after year.Yes we have a central location close to good restuarants, French Markets, good train and cheap bus routes, and a fab beach!But without you the guest, we wouldnt be here. So thank you!

"Lovely pied a terre in Nice - fantastic location!"

We spent a great 3 nights in this lovely apartment which is situated in a smart (and safe) district of Nice - 5 mins walk from the Zone Pietonne and the Promenade des Anglais. We were travelling with our 3 year old son and the apartment had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The kitchen and shower room are modern and well equipped and the beds v comfortable. It was a much better option for us than staying in a hotel and was excellent value for money compared to the 2 star hotel we could have stayed in for the same price. The apartment is situated on a street with everything close at hand - boulangerie, supermarket etc and so it was easy to stock up the fridge with picnic supplies for the beach. Although we were only there for a short break, I could see this working well for a longer stay for a couple and thanks to the AC/heating provided, is suitable for both summer and off season rentals.
The information provided by the owner was thorough and detailed and all communication was efficient and professional - highly recommended!!

My husband and I just returned from 2 1/2 weeks in the apartment Bord de la Mer, in Nice, and enjoyed every minute. We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary there. The apartment was cozy, clean, and in an ideal location, one block from the beach and Promenade, and several bus lines. We were 6-8 blocks from the train, tram, and Old Town, with the famous Flower and Antique Market. Public transportation in NIce is excellent, and we were able to go to perched villages, beautiful towns along the Mediterranean, over into Italy to several markets. Margareta, the lady who met us was friendly, helpful, and explained to us how everything worked. Richard, the owner sent great information via email. Many restaurants are in the neighborhood ranging from Pizza, takeouts, to fine dining. Be sure to have grilled sea bass at La Trattatoria, across the street. We would love to go back. The restaurant downstairs had wifi.

Nice has it all! We have many guests return year after year.Yes we have a central location close to good restuarants, French Markets, good train and cheap bus routes, and a fab beach!But without you the guest, we wouldnt be here. So thank you!

"Wonderful Retreat......."

We couldn't have hoped for a better base for our stay in Nice. The most ideal location with super easy access to everything and everywhere. Apartment was clean, tidy, well appointed and, above all, comfortable and secure.
I could go on but I'd just be repeating the previous excellent, well deserved reviews.
Many, many thanks indeed.........
We shall return.
