Cours Saleya: The most famous market of Nice is the flower market and main market on the Cours Saleya - in the old town

In the sea: 1st November 2006: Summer starts early and ends late here !


Cagnes-Sur-Mer A short distance from Nice, enjoy something different - a day at the Cagnes-Sur-Mer Hippodrome

Medieval Provence:  Check out Biot … wandering around the charming lanes .. art galleries, a fantastic (air conditioned!) handbag shop, Chez Odile is a fantastic restaurant where the menu is decided each day based on the great produce she buys that day.
The Auberge du Coin also does a good set menu. Why not spend the morning here before heading on down to our next recommendation!

Attractions..

For the kids (and kids at heart!) check out Marineland: We went on the last Saturday in July .. a hot sunny day. We were expecting huge crowds and to melt, however our experience was fantastic. We went with Daisy our 1½ year old and Louis our 3½ year old, took our pushchair (though they did have pushchairs to borrow). Armed with lots of water, snacks for the kids (to distract them when waiting between shows), sun-cream and big hats we set off. We wanted to get our money’s worth, so we checked show times in advance. Having been told it’s important to see the Dolphins first - before the killer whales - we had an early lunch before heading off to the park, arriving in time for the 2.15pm show.

In total we saw two dolphin shows, one in daylight and a night time display with acrobats; three different whale shows, including the pirate display which Louis loved; and the Grand night-time Finale which Daisy stayed awake, for clapping with delight (don’t sit in the front row!)


On Your Doorstep..

(Please Note:  This is only a snap-shot - we have provided an extensive 'Things to Do and See' Guide in the apartment)

  • For coffee… there is a café 'Tabac' right across the road, on the corner.
  • For fruit and vegetables …. a wonderful greengrocers just across from the main door.
  • For medicine … a pharmacy just on the corner
  • For pastry delights … there are two patisseries very close by; one is located to the left of the café and the other just a couple of doors further down.
  • For laundry … a launderette situated on Avenue Gounod, just past the greengrocers (1 minute walk)

Shopping, Kids, Eating out..

Enjoy a chocolate drink on the beach while the toddlers play on Little Tikes slides and house area ...enjoy a trip to Marineland in Antibes and see sharks or go to a wet 'n' wild slide park.. little farms .. boat trips with dolphins .. swimming pools .. trips to the mountains... the list is endless.

The apartment is also geared to helping you enjoy holidaying with the little ones: travel cot, high chair/booster seat and potty available.

Shopping...  OK, where to start?? ... Apart from the zone pieton (with a fabulous shoe shop), Jean Medecin (which is a bit dusty at the moment with the Tram work underway) you must also visit Antibes for quaint little shops great for gifts, St Paul de Vence for stunning views and art work, CAP 3000 is good on a rainy day - head East towards Antibes SNCF is St Laurent du Var. We also love Cannes for the mix of glamour, sandy beaches, a park for the tots and a good run of shops.

Eating Out...  There is something to suit every palate. We are trying to build up a directory in the apartment of places you've loved .. funnily enough the restaurant just opposite and the bar on the corner have been solid favourites. The Cours Salays hosts L'F which we love for friendly service and good outdoor food, St Laurent de Var has a strip of great restaurants, Noori's in Nice for an Indian .. the list is endless - help us add to it!



Big and very big supermarkets..

On Avenue Jean Medecin (5 mins away) the recently refurbished Monoprix has an excellent food hall. With so many internationals residing and visiting Nice there is even vegetarian options available - it saves the trek to Carrefour in Antibes or Lingoustiere and is well worth a visit.

Fresh produce... Please just visit the fruit vegetable and flower market in the Cours Salaya (old part of Nice towards beach west) it is fabulous.

ATM.. One outside La Poste (Rue Gounod) and another on Avenue Aubert which runs parallel to Avenue Gounod. Turn left when leaving Palais Clémenceau, cross over Avenue Gounod and turn right at the next junction.

Parking... Nice, like any city is not the easiest place to park!  That said, the apartment is the right side of the city centre and you can park for free just outside. Alternatively there are meters nearby offering more spaces and, should you wish to leave your car in a car park, there are several nearby - all under 5 minutes by foot from the apartment.
