Apartment Hotels in Nice
Sightseeing close to our apartment hotels in Nice
« Oh my beautiful Nice, queen of the flowers, your old roofs, I will sing for you forever, I will sing for your mountains, your incredible scenery, your green countrysides, your large golden sun, your azure sea, and always I will call in my refrain, Viva, viva Nissa la Bella »
The sole and romantic anthem of Nice makes you want to experience this old but still very dynamic city of the south of France. You can already feel the warmth of the sunray while you are walking on the “Promenade des Anglais”. The promenade is in total 7 kilometers long and guests in our apartment hotels in Nice should grasp the opportunity to relax on a sunny day. Even though the name already gives you a certain hint, many people do not know that setting up the Promenade des Anglais was an initiative of some Englishmen, who regularly came to Nice during the summer month. As the area was known to be full of beggars, the Englishmen came up with the idea of setting up a promenade. The Promenade des Anglais provides visitors in our apartment hotels in Nice with stunning views on the city and the sea.
After having discovered the Promenade des Anglais, we highly recommend to our guests in the apartment hotels in Nice to check out “Vieux Nice” – the old town of Nice. Right on the edge of the Old Town you will finde the Place Massena, a marvelous square. The square has been the center of Nice ever since it was built in the 19th century. Furthermore, visitors of our apartment hotels in Nice should check out the permanent art exhibition of Jaume Plensa located on Place Massena. The permanent exhibition features seven statues representing the seven continents. After having wandered around the old town in Nice, guests in our apartment hotels in Nice should definitely visit the Parc de Chateau. The park rises above the city and thus offers great views on the city and the sea.
If you feel like visiting another beautiful garden, we highly recommend checking out the Monastery Garden (Monastere de Cimiez) located a little further outside the city. The garden is beautifully preserved and also offers great views on the city. The monk’s former orchards are a far cry from the bustling city center. Guests in our apartment hotels in Nice may feel set back to another century, as the Monastery Garden offers a quiet and relaxed atmosphere.
Doing Business in Nice
Business travelers staying in our apartment hotels in Nice have many reasons to come to this lively city. Of course, tourism plays an important role in Nice and is one of the main sources of income. Still, Nice is also known for its innovative technological character. Sophia Antipolis, a technology and science park located in Antibes, is located only 20 kilometers away from Nice. In France, they compare Sophia Antipolis to a light version of Silicon Valley. An astonishing number of 1.300 enterprises have settled down there. Most of these companies deal with high-tech products in the arenas of Medicine, IT, telecommunication and biotech. Renowned companies, such as Hewlett Packard, Orange, Hitachi or Intel have settled down in the Sophia Antipolis technology park.
Restaurants in Nice
Even though our apartment hotels in Nice offer fully equipped kitchens in the spacious apartments, some guests may prefer going out for dinner after a long day of sightseeing or work. Nice offers lots of great restaurants for all kinds of tastes. We recommend the following ones to our guests in the apartment hotels in Nice:
Located in the heart of Nice’s Old Town, L’Epicerie Georges will serve delicious plates full of meat and cheese. This restaurant is known for its famous sandwiches, which are not comparable to any standard sandwich you have ever tried. The tiny restaurant offers a relaxed atmosphere and is the perfect spot to take a break while sightseeing in the Vieux Nice or before heading back to one of the apartment hotels in Nice.

Located in the district of Riquier, the restaurant La Roustide offers a great atmosphere. The interior design is unique and you’ll feel like home immediately after having entered the restaurant. The cuisine is mediterranean. We highly recommend our guests in the apartment hotels in Nice to try the Gambas or the Ravioles.

Doing Groceries in Nice
If you feel like cooking your self-made dinner in the fully equipped kitchen in one of the apartment hotels in Nice, you will find numerous places to buy your ingredients. Nice is full of supermarkets, bakeries and butchers. However, if you want to be sure to buy ingredients from the region we highly recommend visiting one of the markets in Nice. We highly recommend the market Cours Saleya in the old town to our guests in the apartment hotels in Nice.
Cours Saleya – Old Town Market in Nice
The Cours Saleya is one of the most famous markets in Nice. Located in the heart of the Old Town (Address: east of the rue Droite), this market offers regional meat, fresh fruits, vegetables, fish and cheese. If guests in our apartment hotels in Nice are looking for mediterranean spice, they should definitely check out the huge selection of spice. Be sure to go to the market before 7pm, as it will be converted into a restaurant mile in the evening. A visit of the Cours Saleya market also gives guests in our apartment hotels in Nice the opportunity to get in touch with local residents and street vendors. The mix of the French language and different aromas makes a visit of the Cours Saleya a very special one.
