This rental apartment in Nice is located in the heart of the centre in the very desirable area known as the Carré d'Or. It is very close to the beach - a two minute walk (just two blocks or streets) will bring you onto the Promenade des Anglais.
One road down from the apartment, on rue de France, there is a great selection of local shops including a bakery, butcher's, deli, brasserie and florist. Just around the corner, is the small but perfectly formed Cite de la Buffa market, open seven days a week. There is also a good choice of supermarkets on Boulevard Gambetta, so guests will never have far to go to stock up.
Nice's Old Town and Cours Saleya daily market is a fifteen minute stroll away. The local bus route is close by and the airport express bus is located on the Promenade. The main bus stops and train station are about a 15 minute walk away and the Port and Castle Hill will take about 20 minutes by foot.
