The walk follows the shape of a bay - from here you can take a break by sitting in one of the famous blue deck chairs along the promenade and admire the matching azure of the Mediterranean. Further into the city centre you will end up in Place Garibaldi which is famous for being traversed by various trams and is a central place to book your holiday accommodation in Nice. It is dominated by the statue of Garibaldi and is most remarkable for its paved floor and mysterious arcades that abound it. Legend has it that this square has a large cave underground! Another place you may wish to book your holiday home in Nice is next to Place Masséna which is the meeting point between Vieux Nice, or the old town, and Avenue Jean Médecin. In this square the old buildings with colourful frontages mark the starting point for many festivities. It’s not for nothing that Nice is the fifth largest city in France after Paris, Marseille, Lyon and Toulouse. So pack your bags and find your perfect self-catering accommodation in Nice.

Places to stay in Nice

Nice is a city that is steeped in artistic and cultural heritage for you to enjoy during your stay in one of our finest holiday lettings in Nice. As the second most visited city in France after Paris, it’s hardly surprising considering its longstanding trend of international visitors from all over and its Mediterranean flair. The Italian influence is highly visible, and it is a beautiful sunny city which combines both contemporary living with tradition. Nice has been popular with tourists as far back as the 18th century, and the Promenade des Anglais has always been the heart of the city and seaside ambiance. We have compiled the best of places to stay in Nice so that you can decide where best you would like to book your holiday apartment.

  • Vieux Nice: Very much the heart of the city, you can find some fantastic holiday apartments in Nice in the Old Town where the Pont Vieux once stood. It is a trendy area with many interesting bars, restaurants and shops. You will find an interesting mix of international residents and locals, and you may want to book an apartment in one of the light pastel buildings of rue Droite. The cours Saleya is a particularly popular spot, as it is where you will find the flower market and a whole host of popular cafes and bars.
  • New Town: The central hub of this district is the lively place Masséna with various streets leading off from it. It is a commercial centre where you will find the two main department stores - Galerie Lafayette and Nice Etoile. There are a wealth of fantastic design and concept stores on the famous rue Paradis, and is also home to the MAMAC (Musée d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain). It is a wide and spacious part of town with sprawling boulevards such as the Boulevard Victor Hugo.
  • Promenade des Anglais / Beach: Another important hub of Nice, and arguably the most famous for its mage of white sand and turquoise water alongside various volleyball courts and sunloungers. The ‘blue seats’ of the Nice promenade overlooking the Cote d’Azur has become one of the most iconic images of the city.
  • Port: A high end area that matches its affluent yacht scene. There are a large number of local restaurants and bars with a reasonable price tag, and it is only a short distance from the Promenade des Anglais.
  • Cimiez: The quieter, residential neighbourhood which is located higher up the hill from Vieux Nice. It is the museum hub, and here you will find the likes of the Musée Matisse and Musée National Message Biblique Marc Chagall alongside the Musée Archéologique de Nice-Cimiez. It is a calmer spot where you can choose to find a holiday rental in Nice a little out of the city centre.
