The French Riviera is the type of place one dreams of taking one, two, or even three weeks of vacation in. Soaking up the sun, relaxing on beaches, eating exquisite seafood, and strolling the streets and markets, it sounds like a paradise. Vieux Nice, the “Old Town” area of Nice, is located right on the coast, right in the center of the city, close to the long stretches of beach as well as the Marc Chagall museum and a flower market. So wander the streets in the part of the town that has barely changed for hundreds of years, or admire the architecture of the multiple churches and cathedrals and check out these Airbnb vacation rentals to stay in one of the most beautiful areas of Nice!

1. Nice charming studio in Vieux Nice (from USD 75)

This charming little studio is perfect for a couple or for solo travelers! Right in the center of Nice, it’s in a prime location for going to events like the Theatre de Nice, Opera de Nice, and the Promenade des Anglais as well, but also tucked away into Vieux Nice enough so that you’re away from the noise of downtown. Boasting rooftop views of the city and hills, a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, washing machine, and even Netflix, it’s quite a perfect stay.
