Nice, a real diamond along the jewel studded Côte d’Azur, the 5th city of France sits proudly on the beautiful shores of the Baie des Anges. Renowned as a stomping ground for the elite visiting neighboring Monaco, Saint Tropez and Cannes, Nice has a cool, urban vibe exuded from any cosmopolitan city in France, mixed with its chic coastal markets, first class choice of restaurants and charming markets.
Where will you spend your night? Hotel or holiday rental?
Swanky hotels are in abundance in the seaside City, however, to get the real French experience think about a holiday rental in Nice, instead. Live as a local and enjoy staying in the true chic comfort of a French property, sunbath in your own private pool, and enjoy a classic French-style apéro whilst watching the breath-taking Riviera sunset, before heading out for a late dinner on the most famous stretch of beach front, the Promenade des Anglais.
What do you have to see on the French Riviera?
For art-lovers, the works of Henri Matisse, a former famous resident of Nice, is a must-see at the Musée Matisse. The Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain is also worth a look.
Take a walk around the quaint streets of the old town, before soaking up the grandeur of a world that’s gone by in the Parc du Chateau. Don’t forget to look around at the historic architecture, you’ll step through many eras as you see stunning Baroque examples such as the Cathédrale Ste-Réparate and the art-deco Palais de la Méditerranée.
A trip to Nice, is a true pleasure for all the senses!
