The French Riviera - Cote d'Azur region

The Côte d’Azur lies between the mountains peaks of the Alps and the shimmering turquoise Mediterranean. It has been the playground of Europe since the 19th century when it became a popular holiday destination for the rich and famous. It remains to this day, one of the most sought after destinations in France and is ideal for family and group holidays as well as romantic city breaks.

Agreeably named, Nice is the capital of the Alpes-Maritimes. It is a city that stays alive and active all year round. There is plenty to see and do and something to suit all tastes.

With approximately 300 days of sunshine, it is renowned for its long hot summers and cooling sea breezes which help to maintain a pleasant temperature.

Beautifully situated, between Cannes and Menton, Nice offers easy access by train or bus allowing you to explore many other interesting towns along this famous coastline. Day trips to Monaco, Italy and some of the surrounding hilltop Provençal villages are all possible.


Situated in the prestigious 'Quartier Musiciens' the apartment is perfectly located for easy access to the beaches on the Promenade, the main train station and the bustling shops on Jean Médecin - all of which are within a short stroll.

This quiet and safe residential area named after famous musicians, such as Mozart and Verdi, is filled with authentic turn of the century buildings and wide boulevards, a delight to walk around and explore.

The apartment is a 10 minute walk from the Promenade were you can relax under the sun or enjoy a leisurely breakfast or lunch at one of the many seaside restaurants. There are luxury sun loungers and parasols for hire on the beach or try some of the water sports available during the summer months.

The pedestrian area of rue de France with its many street cafes and the main shopping street of Nice, Jean Medecin are close by (8-10 minutes walk).

The wonderful Old Town with its narrow streets is only a 15 minute walk away. Whilst in the Old Town you can explore the Cours Salya with its daily flower market and weekly antique market - the colourful centrepiece to the many seafood and other restaurants which surround it.

For those whose interests lie particularly in culture, explore the many museums and art galleries in town including the Matisse Museum, Chagall Museum and the renowned Museum of Contemporary Art. Details of the Nice Opera programme can be found at the Tourist Office.

At night, the city offers some of the best entertainment on the coast with numerous bars often with live music, Casinos and a selection of nightclubs to choose from.

Nice and surrounding areas also hold a huge number of events and festivals through out the year, some of the most popular ones include:

January - New Year Concert (Nice Acropolis)

February - Nice Street Carnival and the Menton Fete du Citron

March - The Boat Show (Nice Port) and the Paris-Nice International Cycling Race

"Fabulous apartment, ideally located"

Just had a fantastic one week stay at Marcella. Located in Musicians' Quarter and within easy walking distance of both the Promenade des Anglais and the main train station for Monaco, Cannes, Antibes, etc. Kate was extremely helpful on our arrival and we had everything we needed in the apartment. Would thoroughly recommend and hope to return in the future.

"Beau séjour au Marcella"

L'appartement est bien situé à distance à pieds de la Baie des Anglais et de la station de trains qui était très pratique pour nos déplacements. La cuisine était très bien équipée avec de la belle vaisselle, il ne manquait de rien. Nous avons bien apprécié notre petit balcon dans la chambre pour prendre nos repas à l'extérieur. Les lits étaient douillets et les stores étaient étanches pour bien dormir. Le wi fi fonctionne très bien. On retournerait certainement à cet endroit si un jour nous retournerons à Nice.

"Lovely apartment, great location"

We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment in the heart of the Musician's Quarter. Being within easy walking distance of the promenade, train station and airport bus stop it's ideally located (there's also an extremely useful and friendly shop next-door), and generally quiet. The apartment was spotlessly clean, nicely decorated, and extremely well-equipped; free wi-fi is a great addition. We would have no hesitation in recommending the apartment.

So glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your lovely comments

"A true pearl"

Great location in the more quiet and homely musicians quarter, close to the airport bus stops, a few minutes walk to the train station, and a boulangerie and supermarkets around the corner. For getting around Nice, there is also a velo bleau station some 50m away which makes a nice change from walking. The apartment is clean and fresh, beautifully decorated and very well equipped. It really felt like staying at a good friends home. There is the washing machine, iron, tea pots, coffee pot, microwave, fridge and freezer (with ice packs for the picnic), shopping trolley etc etc. We did not miss a thing (except wishing the coffee pot was a bit bigger). Also worth mentioning, the sofa folds out to a full double bed, it is super comfortable and easily folds up for the day in seconds. (I'd love to know where it's from). I'd be happy to stay there again whenever I'm in Nice and gladly recommend it to small groups of friends and couples of any age.

Thank you so much for your lovely review! We look froward to seeing you back here again sometime soon

"Really comfortable stay, 5 min walk from beach"

We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment, and would probably return next time we are in Nice. The apartment itself is small but somehow pretty spacious, airy and comfortable with a well equipped new kitchen, etc. The wifi was excellent! There are small supermarkets and kiosks nearby so its pretty easy to be self-sufficient, otherwise theres a wealth of eating possibilities in Nice. Apartment is located in a pretty quiet area, yet only 5 min walk to the beach. We did struggle with parking sometimes but didn't get a single ticket in 10days despite some questionable parkings.

Many thanks for your review and glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again sometime in the future.
