Area Description: In lively Old Nice, by Park & 5 minutes walk to Sea and Beaches

The charming 1 BR is wonderfully and very strategically located in a unique and lively historic part of old Nice, the heart of Nice city, near Cannes and Monaco, by the Mediterranean sea, on the French Riveria close to Italy. In the neighborhood, you will feel really immersed in Nice and in France with a touch of Italy very close by. The quiet apartment loft style provides exclusively the benefits to be Old Nice as it is located:

- By the beautiful one kilometer long park/garden, Promenade du Paillon called also Coulée Verte (pedestrian green flow) leading to the sea and featuring a wide variety of trees, plants from all over the world, fountains, water sprays, by just crossing the street,
- Also, the Sea and Beaches on the famous Promenade des Anglais and Baie des Anges, at 5 minutes walk going through the small charming streets of Old Nice,
- The superb Castle Park overlooking the bay, at less than 10 minutes walk,
- The newest parts of Nice, like Jean Medecin, Acropolis convention and exhibition center, by a close walk,
- Surrounded by beautiful and historic landmarks and museums,
- The museum of modern art and the public library, are just there crossing the street,
- The renovated public swimming pool Saint Francois is just next street.
- While quiet, at the center of all entertainments, cultural events and activities, shopping and transportation. Just exiting the building are located the best bakeries, gourmet food, supermarkets, restaurants and small cafes, shopping, food and antique markets, bookstores, theaters, cinemas, museums.

The apartment’s small bright street is called Ruelle Saint Francois, by the historic Place Saint Francois facing the Garden/Promenade du Paillon, and the Place Garibaldi.
* Importantly and rare in Old Nice, the strategic location of the apartment allows to choose various accesses to the apartment just exciting the building:
Either by the various charming pedestrian streets of Old Nice, the beautiful Garden/Promenade du Paillon, or the boulevard Jean Jaures, for a faster walk and where you will find at 3 minutes walk: the tram (stop: Cathedrale Vielle Ville) going to the train station Gare Thiers in 4 stops, all transportation, buses, the 20 minutes ride airport bus (stop Lycee Massena), city bikes rental stands, the pay Parking des Arts just crossing the boulevard; and an easy exit to the city to visit around.
By the apartment, buses and trains, will take to known cities, like Cannes, Monaco, the back country and villages. A car is therefore optional and not necessary at least during few days while visiting Nice, although the pay Parking des Arts is just at 2 minutes walk, crossing the Bd, under the Theatre of Nice.

Around Nice:
The apartment is a good base to visit, prestigious cities, like Cannes, Monaco, typical villages and a wide variety of beaches, either by buses, trains or car. Also, the wonderful back country, Provence, hills and mountains, the famous Mercantour National Parc.
