Nice, West side of Nice - Hills

The calm and tranquility of a residential neighborhood

Whether you're arriving by plane, by train or by road, you will not fail to notice that Nice is a city of hills! Fabron, Lantern, Corniche Fleurie, Saint Roman Bellet to the west, St. Peter Féric, Pessicart, St. Pancras, and GAIRAUT Rimiez in the center and north, as remote residential areas a few kilometers from the city center are so easily accessible and well connected by public transport. Here you can enjoy the calm and Nicois sunshine in modern luxury residences with swimming pool and tennis courts, or in sumptuous Provençal villas, modern or Bourgeois.

 To live on the hills and in the west of Nice, is choosing the quality of life at the expense of purely practical aspects offered by the center: only few restaurants and local shops are on site. However, you will have, for the most part, beautiful panoramic views of the city, the sea and the surrounding hills, and attractive prices compared to the center and Mont Boron. With a strong rental yield, these areas will also seduce you with many green areas scattered over their territory and easy access to major highways.

 Green spaces and wild gardens make hills full of charm. The botanical garden located in the hillside is a great place for walking and discovery with more than 3000 species, extensive grounds and breathtaking views across the valley of the Var. Paul Augier High School of Hotel and Tourism, international known, is located in this district.

 Regarding recreation, the Augustine pool offers a water garden for children 3 to 6 years but also entertainment, swimming lessons and special holiday birthdays. For adults, the Riviera Sport and Recreation offers fitness classes and fitness. The C.A.L. St. Augustine, meanwhile, offers, among others dance, weight training, cardio training, sauna and steam room and squash courts. A rhythmic gymnastics club is also in place in the Lantern gymnasium and soccer tournaments are occasionally organized by the city of Nice.

Finally, the Phoenix Park is an ideal venue for a wide discovery of flora and fauna. For this, themed gardens, a lake and waterfalls adorn the tour. The huge tropical greenhouse is particularly essential and children can have fun with games that are intended for them, but also discovering novel animals such as iguanas, flamingos and exotic birds.
