About the local area
Local shops, boulangeries, supermarkets and restaurants can all be found in abundance on your doorstep! You have a great selection of restaurants to choose from, all around the port area and in the nearby 'old town’ of Nice. There’s also a good choice of shopping in the department stores, designer shops and gift shops of Nice.
Local markets are held in Nice and Villefranche. The most well known is held in the ‘Cours Saleya’ in Nice, adjacent to the old town and offers an array of olives, flowers and fresh produce. There is also a super antiques market held here on a Monday.
Sporting activities in the area are abundant– there is sailing (club nautique), diving, fishing, water sports, jogging, tennis, rollerblading along the Promenade des Anglais and of course the beaches. You are also in very close proximity to the mountains and hills of the Alpes Maritimes region here, which makes walking and cycling very popular.
Beaches can be found just 1km away at the ‘Castel Plage’ and also right along the promenade of Nice as far as the airport. From here you can enjoy the sunshine glittering on the azure blue waters of the Med and watch the many boats crossing the ‘Baie des Anges’.
The ski stations of Greolieres, Valberg, Isola and Auron are between 1-2 hour’s drive away if you fancy a couple of day’s winter sports!
Getting around is very easy from here. There are many bus and train services, which have a great network along the coast and further inland. You can take the bus from the port to the neighbouring towns of Villefranche, Beaulieu, Monaco and Menton. The main station is less than a 10 minute walk, so a car is really not necessary here.
Sightseeing is endless; there is the historical old town of Nice; the restaurants and yachts in the port; a stroll along the Promenade des Anglais; the views from the Chateau of Nice; the Museums of Art in Nice; the animals & plants at Parc Phoenix; the charming Mediterranean towns of Villefranche-sur-Mer and Beaulieu-sur-Mer; the zoo and coastal walk around Cap-Ferrat; the perched village at Eze; the casinos and port of Monaco; and the Italian border town of Menton. It is also possible to cross over the border to experience the flavour of Italy!
Other entertainment includes shopping, the casinos & nightlife of Nice, boat trips, cinemas, wine tasting, helicopter rides, or just good old relaxing on the beach!
