Take the 23 bus from outside Terminal 1(free transfer bus from Terminal 2 every 6 minutes outside Arrivals) which drops you right across the road from our apartment).

Location description from owner

The French Riviera - Cote d'Azur region

Nice is a cosmopolitan city on the Cote D'Azur with fashionable shops and restaurants and a great base to explore the region. Wander at random through the narrow streets of the old town and then stroll along the famous Promenade Des Anglais before entering into the heart of the city with its rich architectural and cultural heritage and its numerous parks and gardens. There are many beautiful places to visit:

The Russian Church(Orthodox Russe) is just around the corner from the apartment.

Nice old town (vieux nice): Cours Saleya market is colorful and picturesque and sells flowers and fruit from Tuesday to Sunday and antiques on a Monday. The same area in the evening is rich in people, wining, dining and watching the world go by! There are many bars and restaurants with live music to make a very pleasant night out..

You can climb to the Parc du Chateau (or take the small tourist petit train)where the views of Nice and the Promenade are amazing.

The beach front is packed with restaurants bars and cafes. Sun beds are for hire and watersports are available.

The Promenade along the beach is alive with roller-skaters, joggers, cyclists and people promenading. It is a great place to people watch! City bikes(velo bleu) are available for hire.

It is also worth paying a visit to the neighbouring principality of Monaco (which hosts its famous Grand Prix in May), and Cannes (which hosts the film festival in May) which are only 20-30 mins away by car or alternatively can be accessed by bus which is 1.5 euro per trip or via train.

Other places worth visiting are Antibes, Juan les Pins, St Tropez, St Paul de Vence, Grasse (which is famous for its perfume factory), Villefranche Sur Mer, Menton and the beautiful mountain top village of Eze.

Attractions:

Marineland Antibes, Festivals:Jazz festival (July),Nice Carnival (February), Fete in the Port(September)

The attraction of Nice lies in the sheer range of activities it makes possible. Rollerblade along the Promenade des Anglais in the morning, take in a museum in the early afternoon, stop for flowers or fruits glaces (candied fruits) on the Cours Saleya on the way to the beach, dine in the balmy open air until late into the evening.

The city also makes a great base for exploring with excellent rail links to the beautiful town of Antibes, the wealthy glittering resort of Cannes, the delightful beach at Villefranche and the romantic principality of Monaco. Nice is, quite simply, an unforgettable experience.

A bus stop outside services the airport, the centre of Nice, the Old Town, the port and it is less than 10 minutes walk to the train station which makes it easy to commute to the Monaco, Villefranche Sur Mer, Italy and Cannes.

It is a 15 minute walk to the Promenade des Anglais and a delightful walk to the Old town.

Cours Saleya in the old town has a weekly fleamarket on Mondays where you can search for bargain antiques and a flower market every other day.Nice has a world reknowned Opera House, Opera de Nice, for opera lovers..

“Beautiful modern apartment, centrally located with every convenience close at hand.”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2013

What could be better than staying in a modern apartment in central Nice, where every morning you can step out and are at the boulangerie to buy your morning croissant for breakfast or the food store to buy your supplies in just 60 seconds? The apartment is centrally situated on the corner of Boulevard Gambetta and Boulevard Parc Imperial and there was nothing more enjoyable than sitting people watch while having breakfast before walking (just 10 minutes) to the promenade. What is really nice about it's location is that it is in an area where the locals live so 'real' French life is on your doorstep. The apartment itself is light and airy with every convenience and of course air con which is much needed in summer. I slept on the bed settee which was extremely comfortable and my friends used the bedroom with two equally comfy beds. There is a modern bathroom and kitchen and a balcony which we used to sit on in the evening while having a glass of wine and watching the world go by. The beautiful Russian Orthodox church is nearby and well worth a visit. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and every communication was dealt with by them politely and informatively. The public transport system in Nice is amazing. We caught the No 98 bus from the airport. It stopped right beside Boulevard Gambetta and in 10 minutes we were at the apartment. We could also have taken the No 99 which would have brought us to the railway station just 5 minutes away and would probably have been better. When we were travelling home we were able to catch the No23 bus right outside our accommodation to terminal 1 and then transfer by shuttle to terminal 2. Each day we went to somewhere different. One day we explored Nice itself and on the other two days we went to Villefranche-sur-Mer and Monaco. We were able to get the bus from right outside the apartment and then transfer in the city itself to get to our destinations. If I were to return to Nice, I would definitely stay here again as the apartment, and the location tick all the right boxes. I highly recommend staying here.

Many thanks for your review. We are delighted that your experience in Nice and in our apartment was so good. You have captured the very reasons we love Nice and why we chose to buy there. We are new this year to Holiday Lettings and we are so pleased that you found our apartment was central and had everything you needed to make your French experience so enjoyable.
