Stay YNA luxury apartments Nice, Port tends to be a lot more modern with lifts. They are in a great location if you want to stay somewhere away from the bustling centre with views and a quieter local feel, but have the convenience of being within an easy 10 to 15-minute strolling distance from the main action.
The Port of Nice is just around the corner from the Old Town and reaches back to Nice Riquier station and the large Carrefour supermarket. The walk around the peninsula is spectacular. Enjoy stunning views of luxury yachts and cruise ships and port side restaurants with sunny terraces. Some of the seafood and moules frites (mussels) restaurants are particularly good. The Port has a slightly more local feel in parts and many visitors that have previously chosen to stay in the Old Town on discovering the Port will remain faithful and return here time again. You will find less English spoken in the local shops and you will probably find it more fun experiencing a little banter with the friendly locals. Amongst our many favourite things about the port area is the fantastic swimming at Coco Reserve beach (a locals’ hidden gem!) and the lovely walk you can take along the coast in the direction of Villefranche. The romantic coastline becomes more rugged with villas and apartment blocks perched on the cliffs edge with views across the Riviera.
