Le Dome has rare untouched features with high ceilings, wooden beams, traditional Niçoise red tommasse floor and the pièce de résistance – a ceiling fresco. The building is authentically Niçoise and was a 17th century palace and this floor was where royalty stayed. History is cleverly combined with stylish, contemporary and replica cream, grey and aqua furnishings and every modern convenience you could wish for. A rare treat for discerning travellers who love staying in unique, authentic and historic environments, modernised for comfort and oozing with class. Le Dome is set in a fabulous central location in the heart of the Old Town and a couple of minutes walk to the promenade, beach and lively Cours Saleya market place.

The Old Town (Vieux Nice to the locals) is the tourist heart of Nice. It is a maze of bustling narrow cobbled streets, tall buildings painted pastel shades, bustling squares and colourful daily market places.
The Old Town of Nice has an eclectic mix of ingredients that captivates its many visitors. Cute boutique shops and bohemian art galleries touch shoulders with local boulangeries, charcuteries, butchers and wine caves. Mix in a multitude of street-side restaurants, cafes and bars and the recipe is complete. It is also right next to the Promenade des Anglais and the beach. The Old Town is mostly pedestrianised and only scooters or deliveries are allowed.
Staying in the Old Town is all about the atmosphere. Locals sit watching the world go by, washing hangs from balconies and you are surrounded by the oldest most historical quarter of Nice. Our Old Town (Vieux Nice) apartments for rent in Nice book very fast so be quick to book.
Stay YNA accommodation in the Old Town is tucked away in residential buildings that date back to the 17th century. It can be rare for buildings to have lifts and the stairs can sometimes be quite steep and public corridors a little run down. Some of the narrow lanes are quiet whilst others on the main thoroughfare will be busy until late and experience more noise. Remember real locals live in the Old Town and one persons’ idea of charm and romance might be another persons’ annoyance. Do not be surprised by children playing in the streets and the streets being washed and rubbish/trash removed early morning. So, please be aware if you are a light sleeper and sensitive to noise the Old Town may not be right for you.
