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.
Once your booking form has been received, which can be 'downloaded' from our website. We only require a small 35% deposit to secure your well-earned holiday stay or comfortable business stay.
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 French Riviera - 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.

"Brilliant time in Nice"
We had a brilliant time at the apartment, excellent sound proof windows and very clean and in a great central location. Richard the owner was really easy to communicate with and gave us lots of excellent advice and information. We will definitely return.
Thank you for your kind comments. The address is on Rue De France, so close to everything! The sea, beach and old town, but without the noise! We don't charge for normal cleaning, electricity or water like other owners. The apartment is also only 10 minutes via bus from the airport (Nice International Airport) if you take a number 98 bus for a few euros (can use this ticket all day!!). Also we are about a 15 minute walk from train station, or 5 mins in a taxi. We have many return guests; please see our guest comments. It was very popular last year and this year looks the same so far. Our website below has loads of info and booking form information. The website has guest comments, booking information, pictures and maps. The apartment is situated just off the Promenade des Anglais and the beach, which is just off a quiet side street, called Rue de France in the centre of Nice. But close nearby to all restaurants, cafes and etc. The building is a listed 1870's building, so there are no night clubs, bars, etc,underneath the apartment to make it noisy, in accordance with French Law. There is a small french bakery, on the street, which does gorgeous breads, croissants and coffees! There is also a good sensible cafe night life in the area. To give it that vibrant buzz. The apartment sleeps four, and has four separate beds, one of which can be made into two large. Five by arrangement. The apartment has a TV, DVD, CD system, amazing French provincial marble bathroom and shower area with a square sink, kitchen dining area, freezer and fridge, cooker, kettle, large French airy windows, safe deposit box and air-conditioning even though the apartment is nice and cool in the summer months. All cutlery, plates and etc. Are provided. There is also a guest book and information in the apartment as well. To give a very French South of France feel. The apartment is in a fantastic location, only 10 mins from the airport, either by taxi or bus. I would personally take the bus, which only costs a few Euros per person and the ticket lasts all day, for the whole of the Nice area. Really easy with luggage as well. As is only a 2 minute walk from the bus-stop on the sea front, beach and palm trees. Very central and near the Old Town! You could also hire a car? There is loads of parking. But to be honest, the train, bus, and yacht services are fantastic to get to Cannes, St. Tropez, Antibes, Monte-Carlo, and even Italy. For instance, you can be in Monte-Carlo or Cannes in 15-20 mins by train! We have a special arrangement with a parking company and Irfan and his team can provide cheaper parking than other areas. Hope to see you again soon! A Bientot Richard et Family

"A fabulous location to expolore cote d'azur"
Very clean and habitable apartment, excellently situated at the start of the endless restaurants and a few bars. A three minute walk to the beach! amazing. Sleeps 3/4 comfortably. Owner is extremely helpful- emailing over all the information on the apartment and Nice you could wish for- saves you time and effort. Very accommodating and apartment concierge on hand if needed. An amazing time was had by all- the med sea is definitely azur and really warm.
Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. It takes effort to do this. The apartment is only 10 - 15 minutes via bus from the airport. Then just get off at either Sporting Plage or Blue beach, cross the road, and then you are there, at, "Appartement Bord de la Mer". We are close to a lovely french bakery. The apartment is light and airy, with lovely large french windows and traditional Niscoise shutters. The wi-fi is super fast to make our/your friends and work Collegues jealous via Skype or face time. I personally love the bathroom in this apartment with a great shower and lovely square sink. I'm also very fussy about getting a good nights sleep, so have made the beds as comfortable as possible. We just wish that we could stay as long as some our long term renters e.g 1 - 2 months! We work hard to keep it clean and make your stay as comfortable and fun as possible. A Bientot Richard & Family :)

"Super appartement très propre et bien équipé"
L'appartement est très propre et bien équipé. Idéalement situé près de la plage, des restaurants et commerces. Immeuble très calme. Rapport qualité/prix excellent. Nous y retournerons.
Dear Guests, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are so close to the beach and all the wonderful french culture. The apartment is suitable for families, couples and babies. As we have a baby cot from Mothercare on request. In addition, we have lovely feature balcon bars to the windows to keep things safe for children. We work hard to ensure that all guests and many return guests have a lovely stay. See you again soon. A huge thank you for being great guests! Best Regards Richard and Family :)

"Beautiful apartment, perfect location"
Stayed with friends for a week - the apartment was comfortable, spacious and clean. It was located perfectly - took a couple of minutes to get to the beach and not much longer to other amenities. Would highly recommend and will definitely be going back.
J'y suis allé avec des amis pour une semaine - l'appartement était confortable, spacieuse et propre. Il a été parfaitement situé - a pris quelques minutes pour se rendre à la plage et pas beaucoup plus de temps à d'autres équipements ... "

"The perfect apartment to explore Nice and the surrounding area"
Our first stay at this apartment, which is perfectly situated for the beach as well as exploring Nice and the old town; Richard was extremely helpful and prompt with all communication and the information on what to do/visit/where to eat very useful in making our 4 day stay a great break; We did hire a car but this is not necessary as the apartment is a short bus ride from Nice airport. We would happily recommend the property to friends and family and will be back again, thank you Richard!
Unser erster Aufenthalt in dieser Wohnung, die sich perfekt für den Strand gelegen ist, sowie die Erkundung von Nizza und die Altstadt; Richard war sehr hilfsbereit und prompt mit aller Kommunikation und der Informationen darüber, was zu tun / Besuch / wo man essen sehr nützlich bei der Herstellung von unseren 4-tägigen Aufenthalt zu einer großartigen break; Wir haben ein Auto mieten, aber das ist nicht notwendig, da die Wohnung ist nur eine kurze Busfahrt vom Flughafen Nizza entfernt. Wir würden gerne empfehlen das Eigentum an Freunde und Familie, und kommen wieder, danke Richard!

This is our second time of staying at Bord De La Mer in Nice, and love staying here! It suits what we want/enjoy to enable us to stay/enjoy our trip in Nice, it's clean, tidy and well looked after and nothing is to much trouble or out the way, it's very close to all amenities and the lovely famous beach. We fully recommend this to friends and believe they have already stayed too
Dear Guests, Thank you for such a lovely review. We are so close to the beach, lovely friendly restaurants and public transport. The Cafe downstairs does fantastic French coffee and croissants as well. We love the lift in this building as makes it easier for our bags, especially when we are feeling lazy, as its only on the 2nd floor! The apartment has very comfortable beds, this is important as I'm very fussy about having a good bed! We have tried to have all modern conveniences inside the apartment, such as a washing machine etc., just makes life a little easier. A hotel can't offer this! We have many return guests, which makes this so lovely for us. Your time with us is very important, so we want to get it right. A Bientot 2015!!! Richard & Family

"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. Richard & Famiglia
