'Maioun Casteu' Our luxury (our daughter says we should call it 'boutique') and very spacious (NON SMOKING) one bedroomed fourth floor apartment is in one of the nicest streets in the very heart of the Vielle Ville of Nice. A lift whisks you high up among the roofs where it is bright, airy and full of light . It is just round the corner from the beautiful Place Rossetti and it's bars restaurants and famous ice cream shop and Baroque Cathedral. Only 200 metres stroll from the beach and the famous Cours Saleya Market. It is even closer to the lovely park on the 'Chateau Hill' It is perfect for a romantic short or longer break at any time of year (Nice gets 320 days of sunshine) You do not need a car as the airport bus (3 euros each way) stops at the Gare Routiere only 100 meters away and with the new tramway system access all over Nice is quick and easy and the bus system is excellent. The bedroom is quiet and cool at the back of the apartment with a 'juliette' balcony.
Nice is a lovely place to visit at all times of year, it is generally mild in autumn and spring and even at Christmas we have sat outside in shirt sleeves. There is lots to do for all tastes. The Old Town is more like an Italian Village than the oldest part of a large city. It has more galleries than anywhere outside Paris and more restaurants of every type than our guests can experience in many visits.
Stroll along the famous Promenade Anglais, walk among the ruins on the Castle Hill and gaze at the stunning views over the Baie des Anges; Shop till you drop; then enjoy a romantic candlelit meal at the 'Tire Bouchon' - our favourite among many, then return to the apartment to enjoy one of the DVDs in our library selection.
View the Monets and Dufy's in the Musee des Beaux Arts or the modern art in MAMAC or the Matisse Museum
