At a destination famed for the variety of things to see and do, holiday apartments in Carre d’Or listed on HomeAway put you in a prime location. Whether you want to lounge on the beach, go sightseeing in the old-town or shop ‘til you drop, you’ll never have to stray far from your Carre d’Or holiday home. The loftiest restaurants and most stylish bars are also effortlessly close. Carre d’Or apartments uphold the area’s reputation for luxury and cosmopolitanism, often housed in sophisticated Belle Époque buildings with light, airy interiors and creature comforts like satellite TV and air-conditioning.

Things to do

-Beaches. There’s a fine choice of public and private beaches along the Nice waterfront, with services and facilities like showers, sunbed rental, areas for beach sports and refreshments stands. Most of these beaches shelve quite steeply, so are best suited to grown-up swimmers, but you won’t have to travel far along the coast in either direction to find shallow, sandy beaches at, say, Antibes or Villefranche-sur-Mer.

-Shopping. Nice has a reputation for its excellent shopping, and if it’s a designer experience you’re after, then you couldn’t be better located in Carre d’Or. Parallel to Promenade des Anglais is Rue de France, a pedestrianised street packed with boutiques and fashion houses, ideal for discerning shoppers. For something less exclusive, Avenue Jean Médecin is to the east, and has the Nice Etoile shopping centre, with more affordable brands alongside cafes, restaurants and a cinema.

-Museums. The Riviera is know for being a popular destination for generations of artists, a tradition that goes back to Matisse and Chagall, both of whom are the subject of fascinating museums in Nice. The Matisse Museum is especially highly regarded, with a large collection of work encompassing a long period of his life. There’s also the Contemporary Art Museum, displaying work by the likes of Roy Lichtenstein, Yves Klein and Andy Warhol.

-History. The old-town in Nice has all the hallmarks of a medieval Mediterranean centre, with narrow, winding streets and tall, elegant 16th Century houses painted in muted pastel colours. Nice Cathedral marks the centre of the old-town and is a baroque 17th Century building, with a bell tower from the mid-18th Century. Another beautiful sight nearby is the Palais Lascaris from the 1600s, which has a collection of some 500 antique musical instruments.

-Cuisine. A local dish that is known throughout the world is Salade Niçoise, which has tomato, peppers, tuna, baked eggs, olives and anchovies. Due to the exceptional quality of local fruit and vegetables, simple dishes like Ratatouille can be sublime in Nice, while seafood like sea urchins, bream and mullet are on many menus. There are restaurants to match all budgets, but the old-town and Carre d’Or are where the top tier eateries tend to be found.

Weather in Carre d’Or

Carre d’Or holiday homes are in a city with a Mediterranean climate, known for its warm and mostly dry summers.

Spring and autumn are short seasons, lasting little more than a month or so and bringing temperatures that hit the mid to high-teens.

Travel to Carre d’Or

To get to your Carre d’Or holiday accommodation from abroad you can use the nearby Nice Côte d’Azur Airport (NCE), which is the third-busiest in France. Airlines of all descriptions serve the destination from the UK, from flag-carriers to budget brands. The airport is little more than 15 minutes along the waterfront Promenade des Anglais. Nice-Ville train station is close to Carre d’Or, by foot or tram, and has TGV connections to Paris and Marseille. Nice has also introduced the Velo Bleu bike sharing system to cut traffic and provide a novel way to get around the city.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      All dealings with the owner, Mike, and his staff were great including checking in and out which is done in person - friendly, helpful and punctual. Mike's apartment was absolutely perfect for our family of 6. It is nicely decorated, well equipped and perfectly located. There is a washing machine but no dryer - although there is a rack to hang clothes for drying. The Promenade des Anglais and the beach are a short walk away and there are lots of shops, bars and restaurants in the area. We were able to walk everywhere (beach, old town, port, chateau, etc) including from the train station with our luggage on the day of arrival. Also walked to the train station for day trips to Monaco and Ventimiglia (Italy; for the Friday market). The apartment is located on a busy street but street noise was not a problem at all - as it is located 3 floors above the street and closing the windows eliminated any noise. Note there is no elevator/lift so you have to be able to walk up the stairs. Note that beach towels are not provided although there are a few beach mats and pads that are useful as the beach is pebbly. So bring your own beach towels or you can buy them at the shop down the street towards the beach (for 10-25 Euros per towel depending on quality). Overall we were extremely happy with the apartment and the location was fantastic. It was great sitting out on the little balcony (room for 2 people) sipping wine, watching the ocean and the street below. Highly recommended.
