Where to stay When the millionaires come to Nice they stay in posh hotels and villas, many have second homes or grand yachts they park in the marina where we can ogle them! But here's how you can do it at a fraction of the price: Stay YNA are the leaders in providing local accommodation of all styles. I stayed in an apartment which cost just £36.00 per night (for up to 4 people, not each). You have the use of the whole place, including kitchen facilities, fresh linen, towels and toiletries are provided and you can order Champagne etc – it’s a bit like an upmarket Air BNB. You get to live like a local and also you’ll have a the services of a travel team who will welcome you and provide assistance and helpful advice about the area. There’s a welcome pack too which has loads of info including where the nearest boulangerie is so you can get fresh croissants for breakfast like the locals do. There is also a hostel in Nice that has a gorgeous little courtyard. You do, though, have to share rooms to make the best savings. A room for 2 costs from 27 euros each person per night. With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, Nice is very nice indeed! Janine Marsh stayed in 'Stella', a one-bedroom, centrally located apartment in the Carré d’Or. For bookings, visit where you'll find apartments from 39 Euros per night to 20 bedrooms villas from 600 Euros per night.
