The French Riviera - Cote d'Azur region


Enjoy a wander through the lively lanes of old Nice, admiring the Baroque churches which tower above the squares.

Don't miss the flower market at Cours Saleya, then visit Sainte-Réparate Cathedral before climbing Castle Hill. Stop off to taste a famous Fenocchio ice-cream where you can enjoy a refreshing sorbet.

A walk along the Promenade des Anglais is the perfect way to finish your day, offering beautiful views over the Bay of Angels (Baie des Anges).


With an average of 300 days sunshine per year and over 35 beaches to choose from, it’s only natural to want to spend some of your time in Nice by the sea.

One of the most popular beaches is the Plage Publique des Ponchettes. Soak up the atmosphere, as well as the rays, or join in the fun with a game of beach-volleyball.

If you don’t fancy the pebbles, take a stroll along the Promenade des Anglais and admire the azure waters of the Mediterranean form the waterfront walkway.


Tucked away in the north east corner of the city’s Old Town, you’ll find Place Garibaldi.

Visit this delightful, bustling 18th century square and admire the impressive architecture or head for one of the many restaurants or cafes and take a break – it’s the perfect location for watching the world go by.


Old Town is a magnet for tourists and property buyers alike. Full of lively bars, gastronomic restaurants, Provencal boutiques and oozing with atmosphere, the Old Town is undoubtedly one of the most popular areas of Nice. The Old Town, or Vieux Nice, as the locals call it, dates back to the 16th century and is bordered by the Promenade des Anglais, the 'Chateau on the hill' and Boulevard Jean Jaures. The beach and the new Tramway stops are all within 5 minutes of anywhere in the Old Town, making it an ideal location for holiday-makers. The Chateau on the hill is the former site of a once great castle that had panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea. Demolished in 1706, the site and adjacent grounds now contain a large park, playground, a waterfall and many areas from which one can enjoy spectacular views of Central Nice, the Port, the Promenade des Anglais and the long beach that winds itself around the Baie des Anges (Bay of Angels). If the 213 steps to the top seem daunting, one can take the public elevator for a token fee. Vieux Nice is a traditional Medieval village characterised by narrow, winding streets and buildings that date back to the 16th Century. There are many traditional shops selling Provencal fabrics and Nicoise gourmet foods, such as Socca, a pancake made from chick peas and olive oil. The Salad Nicoise is also a local favourite, featuring prominently on restaurant menus in the city. In the evening, the Old Town comes alive with an abundance of fine restaurants and late-night bars, from French Brasseries to Irish bars, from Indian restaurants to Provencal gastronomy. The Palais de Justice (the courthouse) is the major landmark, linking the Cours Saleya - a street filled end-to-end with restaurants and bars which is famous for its daily markets- with the more typical narrow streets behind rue de la Prefecture. Nice's Opera house, an architectural masterpiece, is in the heart of the Old Town and has regular performances throughout the year. The area of the Old Town that looks onto the Promenade des Anglais is known as the Ponchettes, and is one of the most sought after locations in Nice. Vieux Nice is one of the prime attractions of the Riviera, an area with clearly defined boundaries that is carefully protected and maintained and steeped in history. It is an essential port-of-call for holiday-makers and an excellent location for investors. For individuality and charm, nowhere beats it.There are also "ski stations" : Isola, Valberg, Auron and Val d'Allos. Approx 1.5hours drive in buses for only 1 euroAlso if you have time visit the ltalian market on a Friday in Ventimglia (the French refer to it as Vintimille) Its only a 30 min trip on the train from the main Nice railway station. Things are a lot cheaper!!Ventimiglia has the bigger open-air market (400 stalls) on Fridays, and is connected directly to Nice by half-hourly trains taking a little under 50 minutes.If you are feeling a little more adventurous then take the train from Ventimiglia to San Remo.San Remo's market is on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

"Fantastic location and great facilities"

We love the South of France and were delighted to find the flat was right in the heart of the Old Town with all amenities close to hand, including shops, night life and public transport. The flat itself is also spectacular with a massive living area and well proportioned bedrooms. We had a fantastic time and can't wait to go back!

thanks , so glad you enjoyed your stay, most welcome back anytime

"excellent apartment"

The apartment was absolutely perfect for us - a family of 6 - as it is situated right in the old town. Just to step outside for the morning jog on the promenade, finish with a swim and enjoy breakfast around the corner from the apartment. it is the perfect base for all kinds of adventures as the buses and trams leave only minutes away. Very clean and quiet despite the central location, Above all Mike made sure that we got all necessary information well in advance, that we were guided to the apartment, warmly welcomed and received all necessary info to truly enjoy our 7 night stay. this was the perfect place for us, and we'd all stay here again when visting Nice Regards mike steinle

"Lovely apartment in the heart of Nice old town"

We stayed in the apartment for a short break to celebrate our wedding anniversary and the apartment made the occasion very special. On arrival we were met by the lady who looks after the apartment and she described very clearly to us everything that we needed to know. Although not the owner, she is clearly very proud of the apartment and it showed in how spotlessly clean it was. The apartment itself - which really is in the heart of the old town - is modern, tastefully decorated and furnished and has all the amenities you'll need such as dishwasher, washing machine etc. There are lots of restaurants, bars and shops right on the doorstep and because of the locality feels like you’re in 'proper France'. If you want larger shops Avenue Jean Médecin is only a pleasant ten minute stroll away. If you like markets then the daily market on Cours Saleya is a must. For a more relaxing break, the beach is also no more than ten minutes away. I would recommend the apartment to anyone because of how lovely the apartment itself is - and its great location.

"Fantastic place to stay to explore Nice and the French Riviera"

We thoroughly enjoyed our week stay at the apartment in old Nice. The apartment is very large, comfortable and beautifully appointed with all mod cons including a Nespresso coffee machine. It is extremely well placed for exploring the old town, as it is quite literally on your doorstep, and in walking distance of the beach and waterfront. The bus and trams stops are again a very short walk which allows you to discover more of Nice and the surrounding area (Cannes, Monte Carlo, Monaco, Antibes). There are so many restaurants and bars in the old town that you are spoilt for choice, and they cater for all ages and tastes. We would definitely recommend this apartment as a base to explore both Nice and the French Riviera.

"Paradise in Vieux Nice"

Wonderful spacious apartment in Vieux Nice. Every effort has been made by the owners to make this apt fabulous. Outstanding deco, spotlessly clean. It is furnished to the highest quality with every home comfort and more. Very stylish. Excellent location for the beach, for restaurants, shopping and all transport to get around the area. This is to be highly recommended. We will definitely be returning regularly. Thank you to the owners Gilly & Michael.

"Perfect location, gorgeous, spacious apartment with everything you need"

Perfectly located in Vieux Nice, this apartment is spacious, clean, well looked after and offers so much more than you would get in a hotel. The apartment has 3 double bedrooms and a massive living space with WiFi, a/c, tv, full kitchen etc - everything you need. We loved it! Booking was hassle free and the meet and greet service worked perfectly. We were only there for 3 nights...wish we'd stayed longer :)

"Home away from home"

This charming apartment exceeded our expectations and the website description, it is equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay. It is well maintained and I'd say 5 stars for cleanliness (no dust even in the corners!) it's full of local period character and its location in the old town means you are absorbed into the heart of Nice from the outset. We were given a lovely welcome by Adele, which we really appreciated as our flight had been delayed. The bakery a minute away provides delicious croissants for breakfast and there are too many excellent bars and restaurants within minutes to mention. Nice will not disappoint and neither will this apartment. We definitely did not want to leave and will recommend both to friends and relatives.

"Beautiful Nice apartment!"

“OMG”!!! What an apartment, the photos don’t do it justice. Its so big and tastefully furnished with all the equipment you will need for a self-catering holiday. You couldn't wish for a better location, its fabulous location is surrounded by restaurants, bars and family bakers; the baguettes / croissants are to die for and all freshly baked on the premises. Also 1 minute walk to trams and buses and maximum of 3-5mins walk to beach. Highly recommend the Cours Seleya (1 minute walk!) for restaurants/bars, just sit there with wine and watch the world go around. Also recommend walking through the newly finished park with its fountains etc. We will return!!!

"A fabulous mix of great location, modern facilities and genuine local character."

This was my second visit to stay in this apartment in 2 years and my 4th to Nice. This time I was with a friend from University on her first visit to Nice. I could just say that returning to the property is enough recommendation but then I would not be doing it justice! If, like me, you are an explorer of regions whilst on holiday then this apartment is a joy. It's location is almost beyond compare. Positioned at the heart of the Old Town of France's 5th largest city, the apartment is ideal for those wishing to explore the myriad of narrow streets that make the area so characterful. It was great for us to be able to walk almost everywhere from the apartment door. The Promenade des Anglais is 5 minutes gentle stroll with a good selection of sunbathing options. If dining out, as it was for us, is your choice then an outstanding number of reasonable priced, good quality restaurants and bars are within 10 minutes easy walk. We did spend some time exploring other areas along the coast and found it easy to access the excellent and low cost bus network, as all the stops are within 10 minute walk from the apartment. The facilities within the apartment are fabulous. It is clear from the outset that the owners have taken time to carry out a sympathetic modernisation of the apartment whilst not affecting it's original features and wonderful character. Equipment levels are outstanding in the kitchen area which means we could have cooked in should we have wished. The Wi-Fi and TV / Audio facilities mean that we were always in touch with friends / family and we were able to relax in the excellent living area after our evening out. Sometimes, apartments have poor storage in bedrooms which is not the case here and was most welcome. As we were in Nice with temperatures hitting 33 degrees on a daily basis, our 6 day stay was made so much better by the air conditioning in the apartment which is very effective and easy to operate. Finally, I have read some other reviews of this apartment where people have mentioned the street noise at night. I can honestly say that this was not an issue to us and did not affect our sleep! We were happy to be in the centre of a city which offers something for everyone and takes a pride in its appearance.

Thank you, very nice of you to take the trouble to write this review and you are always welcome back Kind regards Mike

"Location, location, location"

Perfect stay in beautiful Nice. We stayed in the apartment for 5 nights 6 adults. So glad that we chose to stay here. The apartment is Gorgeous and much more spacious than it looks in the photos. The owner was brilliant answered all my questions before we set off and was very quick to reply to any queries. Booking process very easy and straightforward. We were met in the apartment by the agent. Even though it was very late. Helpful and explained everything. The apartment is furnished to a high standard with everything you need. Wifi and English TV greatly appreciated. The location is great. Just around the corner from the lovely flower market and in the old town. We felt like we were in the thick of it. A great boulangerie that you can nip down for breakfast. The monoprix 10 min walk. We feel like we have only just scratched the surface of Nice. So will be back to stay here again. We booked transfers with Med tours excellent. On time very professional .

thanks, great review
