Things to do

-Shopping: While still in Central Nice, not too far from their holiday homes, visitors will find the world famous department store Galeries Lafayette and the Nicetoile shopping centre among other shops. Here they can get supplies for their Central Nice holiday home or fashionable attire to go with the sunny weather.

-Museums: This part of Nice is home to the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art where exhibits by such renowned artists as Yves Klein are displayed. MAMAC, as this museum is also known, is mostly dedicated to European Nouveau Realisme, Pop Art, Minimalism and Art d’Assemblage styles of art. But even before entering the building visitors will be mesmerised by its futuristic lines and glass walls.

-Parks: Nice locals usually head to the Park Forrestier du Mont Boron to cool off during the weekend. Visitors occupying apartments in Central Nice will also want to stroll through the wooded trails in this protected national park while enjoying the stunning views.

-Cultural events: The Nice Jazz Festival is one of the most highly anticipated shows on the music events calendar. It is recognised as the first such event of international stature, the first such event having been staged in 1948. Every summer since then jazz greats of the ilk of Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and Dizzy Gillespie have performed there.

-Promenades: The Promenade des Anglais is one of the most renowned seaside promenades around the world. While strolling along visitors will enjoy amazing views over the Mediterranean. They can even pull up a lounge chair and soak up the abundant sunshine right there. This promenade was commissioned by an Englishman in the 19th century.

It is really well located five mins walk from the Prom and also near Nice Étoiles, the upmarket shopping centre plus there is a supermarket across the road so super convenient. V comfortable apartment with wifi and tv. I went for a jog along the prom every morning in the sun. It was glorious.

It is equipped with everything you need for a stress free stay in the South of France. The airport pick-up made arrival fast and worry free. Hanna was waiting at the apartment to show me how everything worked and she even spent extra time making sure everything worked and writing down all the buses and trains I would need to reach different places on the Riviera. She was so kind and she even checked in throughout the week to see if I needed anything her thoughtfulness was very much appreciated! I would definitely recommend sunlight properties!

The furniture, bedding, linens and other fixtures were nice quality. The apartment is quiet and comfortable and we appreciated the a/c on evenings when it was still warm. Everything was in working order and we particularly liked the wonderful espresso machine and complimentary bottle of wine that was waiting for us. Communications was great with Donatella and she was very helpful. The apartment is in an older building with large doors, a voluminous entry way and many steps. There is a lift to the 2nd floor and additional steps to get to the apartment door; you will walk off your pasta and gelato if you just use the steps! With the older building you will notice changes in water pressure and temperature - not the fault of the landlord, this is typical of older buildings so this may be frustrating if you are expecting long, warm showers. We enjoyed our stay in this large and conveniently located apartment and would recommend it to others.
