Eating and drinking in Nice: Le Nice is just 5 minutes away from a variety of shops and small supermarkets, including many boulangeries (independent bakeries). Nice like the rest of France maintains high standards of food for sale, both in the supermarkets, small corner shops and the markets themselves. The supermarkets are generally open till 8.00p.m. and on Sunday mornings; the bakeries will provide for your morning croissants and baguettes, lunch time sandwishes and snacks and evening treats!
The apartment is about ten minutes walk from the pedestrian zone of the Rue de France, where you will be spoilt for choice in restaurants of all types. There are numerous cafes along the Promenade des Anglais - and on the beach itself! The Cours Saleya in Nice’s Old Town is both the famous flower market, hosts the ‘Marche Provencal’, with all manner of local products and delicacies, and has a superb range of eateries and places to sit in the sun and watch the crowds pass by.
What to do in Nice: Nice is a ‘city by the sea’ with all the facilities of both. The beaches are within 10 minutes walk from the apartment, and you have an extensive choice whether you want the facilities of a private beach, for which you will pay a daily fee; or are prepared to take your luck on the public plages.
The Promenade des Anglais is literally that and affords easy walking - or cycling, in-line skating - for several kilometres in both directions. You can walk round to the Port of Nice where luxury yachts tie up, and the ferries leave for Corsica, or for a variety of shorter trips up and down the coast.
The Riviera has long been a haunt of and inspiration to artists, and there are numerous large and small galleries and museums in Nice and in the surrounding towns.
Access: The apartment is about 10 minutes by Taxi from Nice Cote d’Azur Airport (or there are local buses); and a similar distance from the train station. Nice is France’s second busiest airport and receives direct flights from all over the world, including all major UK airports, European capitals and daily fights from New York.
You can also travel to Nice easily by express train from Paris, which connects with the Eurostar from London.
The A8 Autoroute from Marseilles via Cannes has a junction by the airport and if you are coming by car it is just 10 minutes drive from there.
Nice is close to the French Italian border – travel to Italy is easy by road (car or bus) and by rail.
