Location description from owner

The French Riviera - Cote d'Azur region

The French Riviera or Côte d'Azur, the idyllic stretch of land squeezed between the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea, has been and still is a magnet for the rich and famous like Queen Victoria and the Rothschild, celebrities like Brigitte Bardot and Elton John, artists like Bonnard and Matisse, writers like Cocteau and Nietzsche, thanks to its mild, sunny climate and its picturesque settings.

There is always a place for everyone's taste: Saint-Tropez for the show offs, Cannes for its Film Festival, Grasse for its perfumes, Vallauris for its Picasso's inspired potteries, Saint Paul de Vence a medieval village, crammed with art galleries, the ancient market town of Villefranche-sur-mer for its unique fortress, Monaco and Montecarlo for its Casino, Formula one racing and exotic gardens, Menton because it is simply nice to retire there.

And of course Nice, the Capital of the French Riviera itself, famous for its Promenade des Anglais, the new spectacular Promenade du Paillon, the Casino, the Opera House, the interesting museums, its buzzing night life and the magnificent Park of Castle hill, right opposite us.

“Fantastic central location, friendly owner, perfect Nice apartment.”

Reviewed 13 Dec 2012

We visited in Nice in August 2012. Stayed this apartment for 1 week. Nothing was to much trouble for Alberto who sorted everything out for us and arranged for the house keeper to let us in and show us around. The location is great, everything is walking distance. You can even rent bikes from practically outside the apartment to explore the promenade. The apartment was reasonably priced and just what we needed as we ate out most evenings, being spoilt for choice in the centre ville. All in all a perfect apartment for 2 giving you a central base from which to explore Nice and the south coast.
