Re: Recommendation for places to stay in Nice

Its been a few years now but we stayed in the Hotel de la Fontaine, Rue De France.
It was simple, with small rooms but quite OK and very reasonable. It was near-enough to the old town and the Market etc as well as being only 2 streets away from the sea front. (Very near the famous Negresco Hotel)
Click on the Nice link here and enter the address (number and road name) of the hotel you choose to see a picture of the area:

Travel Tips for Nice

Flower Market

by eho

Walk along Promenade de Anglais towards Monaco.

I took morning walks before work but I wish I had more time! Look for the flower market just before the road starts going uphill. This is a market in the morning, and by the evening the street is lined with tables for diners. I took the time to examine all the menus and food available from the different restaurants before choosing one.

Nissa La Bella, the Anthem

by Elainehead

Nissa La Bella is the name of the anthem of Nice and its county. The Anthem was composed in 1912 by Menica Rondelly (1854-1935), who was a poet and writer from Nice. The supporters of the OGC Nice (first division soccer team) sing (or sang) the anthem before a match.

The complete anthem lyrics (in "Niýois" and in French):

learning to sail in Nice

by allaboutnice

Learn to sail a Hobie Cat (a type of Catamaran for 1- 4 people) in Nice. We did a course this Summer 2004 and it was great fun and made a change from lying on a beach all day. You still get just as brown but without the boredom factor plus you get a bit fitter and see some wonderful views of the coastline along Nice.

Also, you do get a proper qualification at the end which is a nice incentive too. We had never sailed before but by the end of the week we had picked up the basics and improved our French a bit.

We were part of a group of about twelve people, mostly international students from the ABC Language School in Nice.

The courses run throughout the Summer, either five mornings or afternoons each week. The cost is 115 euros per adult. Our daughter completed the children's course, sailing a tiny 'optimist' boat. This was 100 eros for the five afternoons. For all contact and location details see my 'Learning to sail in Nice' page on my external site www.allaboutNice.com.

The Sailing School is on the far side of the Port on boulevard Franck Pilatte right next door to La Reserve Public Beach and the Club Nautique de Nice.

Most of the students wore swimwear and that is all you need. I wore running shorts and a t-shirt, a hat and sunglasses too but you may lose them in the sea. A waterproof camera is essential. I'm so glad we took one, we have some great phtos. You will definitely need waterproof suncream. I use P20, it stays on all day on one application and is waterproof.

You can change and leave your stuff safely in the reception area. Bring some water too. There is a snack van on the road right by the entrance to the club so you won't starve.

Church of Saint Francois-ne Paule

by Pavlik_NL

Very impressive facade that is the most attractive scene in this street leading away from Cours Selaya and is named after this church. The name says that Francois actually was born as Paule, but was renamed afterwards.

the road where husbands are nervous

by allaboutnice about all the shops along rue Paradis

The aptly named rue Paradis is a pedestrianised road running north-south linking Place Magenta with Avenue de Verdun one block west from the central Place Massena.

This is where the luxury designer shops are located and it is wonderful to window-shop and even better to spend.

There is a gorgeous children's clothes shop along this road called 'Bonpoint' with exquisite clothes (at exquisite prices) - if you have a baby or young child to to buy for - this would be the place for a very special present.

I can not remember all the shops along rue Paradis, but to give a few examples - Sonia Rykiel for women and girls, Faconnable for men and Armani for men and women. There is also a Mont Blanc shop (fountain pens) and Louis Vuitton (luggage and bags)

Towards the sea and left on to Avenue de Verdon, the designer names continue with Marina Rinaldi, Cartier and Hermes - Hermes is the classic French name in the very best quality and is famous for its scarves, accessories and bags - in particular the 'Kelly' bag (there's a 2 year waiting list for this bag and prices start at 3,500 GB pounds) Rue Paradis is really a place to window-shop and dream of a lottery win. The shops here are mostly clothing and jewellery. You may be able to pick up a bargain in the sales - January and July.

Tip: the Hermes sale starts on 8th January 2004 for about 2 weeks with reductions on the ready to wear clothes and some of the accessories like gloves and shoes. Husbands, be very afraid.
