Because of its clear sunlight and vivid colours, Nice drew a new breed of travellers in the form of painters, followed by jet-set chic and film stars, musicians and millionaires. Nice is where modern tourism started.

Photographs of our Nice holiday rental apartment
Our holiday rental photographs show things exactly as they are with the sea view being exactly as shown on the photographs. However, there are limits to what photographs can reveal and we feel that the photos do not do justice to the "atmosphere" of this lovely apartment. You just have to come and find out for yourself.
None of our photos are contrived, we just snapped at random when we saw something and Cristal clear light of the Mediterranean did the rest.

Vacation in the Nice Cote d'Azur
If any part of the world deserved its title, then the Cote d'Azur (Blue Coast) is one such region. The morning sea is blue, the sky is blue and a one week vacation in Nice will evaporate the blues you may bring with you from work or other pressures.
Your mind will clear and you will formulate a plan to sort things out. We hope our holiday apartment will assist. We hope you will return to this apartment or one of our others with friends to share your vacation experiences with them.
Cultural history of Nice holidays.
William Shakespear wrote: 'If all the year were playing holidays, to sport would be as tedious as to work; and nothing pleaseth but rare accidents'. The great man was wrong here because playing and working on the Cote d'Azure and especially, Nice continues to give me great pleasure throughout the year. Thus, a one or two week holiday will be heaven.
Holiday rental apartment Winter holiday breaks.
A city break is often associated with a cheap deal in a hotel in Northern Europe. This need not necessarily be the case with the high standard of our self catering holiday apartment in Nice South of France. Easy Jey leads the way for the cheap flights and you can be in warm Winter sun in under 2 hours for a one week stay costing under Â£400.
Nice is a living city and so does not shut down for the Winter like some smaller towns and villages along the Cote d'Azur coast. Nice is lively at Christmas, New Year and for the 2 week February Carnivals. Then there is Easter and it all kicks off again.
Self catering rental opportunities in Nice.
Nice has limited space for new building developments to increase the housing stock. Much of the land is under restricted planing access for new buildings and the height of any new buildings must conform the the 5-storey limit of pre-existing buildings in Nice. This preserves a human feel about this living city by the sea, but rental property is limited.
In general, holiday rental property investors who purchase in Nice are advised to remain within the boundaries of the Old Town to the East, Boulevard Gambetta to the West, and Avenue Clemenceau to the North. Therefore most of the holiday rental opportunities will follow the same pattern for availability.
Place Massena square in Nice is considered to be the centre-piece of Nice and much money is spent on keeping its beautiful fountains, gardens and distinctive red Italianate 17th century buildings in good order. Rental property here is rare and so there is a price to pay if you can rent a holiday apartment on Place Massena in central Nice.
Place Massena is in the highly priced area known as the 'Carre d'Orr' which includes the area running from the Negresco Hotel on the Promenade des Anglais down to Place Massena and back North only as far as Boulevard Victor Hugo. This area ends to the East of the fantastic pedestrian avenue Jean Medicin.
Our holiday rental apartment is right in the middle of the Carre d'Orr and has the added bonus of being a quiet cul-de-sac street on the Promenade des Anglais. Therefore this apartment gets the best of both worlds in terms of its ideal location.
All the factors mentioned make this apartment an ideal holiday rental apartment opportunity for anyone seeking a terrace and sea view and quietness.
