An Overview

Lauren is a 2 bed holiday rental apartment in Nice with bags of character in one of the best locations the city has to offer. With cool cream walls, original local prints, French style furniture and has every modern convenience you could wish for. Your only dilemma will be whether you turn left or right out of the front door because you’re in the middle of all the action. The historic Old Town is on one side with its charming narrow cobbled streets and a slightly more modern Nice with the main shopping outlet, Nice Etoile and Ave Jean Medicin lying in the other direction. Boutique patisseries, stylish homeware and fashion shop fronts vie for space with trendy restaurants, cool bars and new eateries that are only a few steps away. Decisions, decisions!

The area Quartier Etoile is in a wonderfully central location. Walk out of your door and the main shopping area of Jean Médecin and the pedestrian zone are right outside your door. An array of restaurants, both modern and traditional, is on your doorstep and the more tourist centre of the Old Town is a glance across the street. The beach and promenade is 5 minutes away and public transport is excellent and within close proximity. There is also a wonderful little cafe downstairs called ‘Au Gubernatis’ that is a favourite of Lauren’s owner. Great breakfasts and lunches in a contemporary atmosphere where the well dressed office workers mingle with tourists looking for a good place to ‘do lunch’.

Public transport

The tram system in Nice has recently developed and there are now 3 tram lines facilitating travel across the city and meeting up with the many buses. Line 3 (approx. 4:23am to 0:45am) connects the airport to the Alliance Riviera stadium, National Museum of Sport and St Isidore shopping centre. Line 2 (approx. 4:45 am to 1:10 am) connects the airport to many stops along the promenade and then onto the centre of Nice, the Old Town and the port. Line 1 (approx. 4:25 am to 1:25 am) meets line 2 on the main shopping avenue of Jean Médecin and then goes north to Nice Ville train station (Gare Thiers) and on through the market neighbourhood of Liberation, or in the opposite direction passing the Old Town, Place Garibaldi for the Bonaparte neighbourhood and onwards to the exhibition centre and the main hospital, Pasteur. Buy your tickets from machines on platforms before boarding: a one-way ticket costs €1.70 (bus/tram changes included up to 74 mins) or you can buy ten tickets for €10 and other passes. All tickets must be stamped onboard.
Please be aware that at the airport the ticket machines only allow you to buy round trip tickets for 10€. To buy regular tickets (1.70€) you have to take the tramway from the airport to the next stop (grand Arenas) for free, get off the tram, buy the tickets (a card you can top up) at the machine and get on the next tram (be prepared for a line of people trying to understand how it works and up to 30 minutes waiting time). The best option is to download the app Ligne d'Azur buy tickets online and store them on your phone
