Sauna in Nice

by Belitacan

Hi there,

Struggling to find a good sauna/steam place in Nice, preferably not gay for partner Steve. Will be staying in the port.

Seems hard to find.

Can anyone help please?

Re: Sauna in Nice

by NiceLife

There is a sauna just next door to the foot of the Chateau 20-30 yards from the Ascenceur, which is pretty close to everything towards the Quai Etat Unis - not far from the Port

However what happens behind the front door is anybodys guess. Nice does have a fairly active gay scene so who knows.

I susppect some of the very top international hotels might have a fitness club including a steam room - check that out first.

Travel Tips for Nice

Go to Cabris (8 km from Grasse...

by MVMT

Go to Cabris (8 km from Grasse (picture)). This place lies in the hills above Cannes at 500 m altitude. Its origin dates back to the 5th. century b.c. The ruins of its feudal castel, which was built around the year 1000, can still be seen. The place was abandoned for almost 150 years due to the black plague. Count Mirabeau gathered around 30 ligurian families and offered them to settle there.
I stayed at the Vieux Chateau, which is an old auberge with the BESTTTTTTTT provencal food I’ve ever had.
Hiking, climbming, swimming and the best of times took place at Gorge du Loup (thanks again!!!!).
Grasse, is the most beautiful village with a market place and a bookshop that were like being in heaven… Most of my favorite writers lived in Cabris one time or another; Andre Gide, Camus, St. Exupery, Jean Marais.
The hours I spent at the bookshop in Grasse.

Doing Laundry in Nice

by Elainehead

Definitely not my fave thing, but without a washing-machine, it's hard to wash heavy clothing/sheets.
Unfortunately my washing-machine broke (fixing it would be as expensive as a new one) and having no money to buy a new one, I had to use the nearest laundromat. Luckily, this one is clean enough. It's a small place with only 6 washing machines (one of 16 1/2 kg , three of 7 1/2 kg and two of 7 kg) and 4 dryers, so come early to avoid crowds.
You will need coins to use the machines, but there is no coin changer there. The owner is usually in the afternoon, so he may change your money if he's there. Otherwise, your best bet is going to the nearest grocery store or La Poste (coin changer). For prices, check my main picture.

1) Load the drum with your clothes
2) Put the washing powder (if you didn't bring yours, you can buy there [see 2nd pic] and don't forget to use the cup for that)/softener in their respective compartiment (there are instructions on the wall in 3 languages: French, English and German). Close it.
3) Shut the washing machine door and choose the temperature program.
4) Check the number of your washing machine (number in green on the up right side)
5) Go to the payment machine (see main picture).
6) Insert coins slowly (always check the credit panel) and then click on the number of your washing machine (don't worry, this machine gives the change).
Washing at 40 °C usually takes about 30 mn.

The tricky part is using the dryer (only 10 mn). You'll need it more than once to get your clothes dried.

If you have a lot of clothes, it would be nice to have a basket (to remove your clothes from the washing machine to the dryer) or you will wet the whole place.

Packing List

by b1bob

I wouldn't get too carried away. Just dress like you would on a summer beach holiday in the States. I went in summer, so I wore a lot of short pants and t-shirts. The standard gear. 35mm. camera. Buy your film at home- it's cheaper that way.

Cap Ferrat Zoo - for children

by Nice2004

Cap Ferrat Zoo is a pleasant place to take children for a day out. The zoo can easily be covered in an hour or two. Most of the animals look well cared for, although one of the tigers looked a little "stir crazy". There is a cafe/restaurant within the zoo which sells a variety of snacks and meals. Entry is 12 euros for Adults, 8 for children + free for under 3.

To get there from Nice Gare Routiere you can either try to catch the 81 bus which stops off just by the Zoo at Cap Ferrat a few times a day, Mon-Sat. It departs Gare Routiere 0650 / 1020 / 1245 / 1315 / 1800 (although it sneaked out of the Gare Routiere early on the day we wanted to use it!) and returns from the zoo stop are at 1039 / 1304 / 1340 / 1819. Or TAM 111 which leaves for the zoo at 0910 / 1215 / 1550. For a more regular bus service you could try the TAM 100 bus and walk from Villefranche as we did. It took about 25 minutes to walk from the closest stop to the Zoo.

Designer label junkies go here

by NiceLife about Rue du Paradis, off Zone Pietone

A whole street given over to designer labels - all the famous houses in haut couture from France and Italy, conveniently packed into one place. Good whether its for window shopping, or you have credit cards and know how to use them. Conveniently located between the Zone Pietonne and Bd Jean Jaures.

Whilst the best Nice can offer, easily trumped by Cannes boutiques of the Croisette and rue d'Antibes, where such top-end shops are often actually busy. Like the Cartier on the Croisette, recently - busy with a three-man armed jewel heist at 10:30 in the morning. Its not just shoppers, but also robbers with an appetite for "luxe". Er, clothes?
