Getting along with the neighbours.jpg
Getting along with your neighbours

When you stay with Pebbles, you’ll get the best of both worlds; traditional French buildings that don’t compromise on luxury or quality. Many of our properties are located in grand apartment blocks in the heart of Nice – and whilst it’s great to live like a local alongside les Niçoises, it’s important to respect the neighbours in the buildings that you stay in, and remember that they are probably not on holiday and won’t be happy to be kept awake until late in the night if they have work the next day.

safety in Nice blog post.jpg
Safety in Nice

Nice has a very low violent crime rate. As cities go, it’s a very safe one, so you can feel safe when walking around during the daytime or evening. Nice knows where it’s bread is buttered, and the local authorities work hard to maintain their main source of income – tourists.

Cannon man

It’s your first day in Nice and you are sipping a cold drink on the Cours Saleya waiting for your lunch to arrive. Then BOOM! You jump out of your skin when everyone around you remains unperturbed. Don’t worry, it happens to all of us – for the uninitiated, this is the century old tradition of the Nice Cannon and a reminder to every self-respecting Nicois.

Recycling

Not all heroes wear capes – some just know how to properly separate their recycling. France happens to be far behind a lot of other developed countries in its recycling habits (with under 25% of household waste recycled in France, much lower than the Europe’s average which is over 30% ¹), so let’s not add to the problem. Once you know what can / cannot be recycled and how to do it, it’s easy! To help you on your way, we’ve provided some simple recycling guidelines to follow during your stay in Nice.

VELO BLEU

In mid-July 2009 Nice’s mayor Christian Estrosi launched Vélo Blue, the Riviera’s first bike-sharing program. Following in the footsteps of the popular Vélib' bicycles in Paris, nine hundred bikes have been placed at 90 stands around town. Another 60 stands and 600 bikes will be added by early 2010. For little more than the price of a baguette you can unlock a bike, give the traffic and taxis a miss, and tour the city in eco-style.

Need a ride?

If you’re expecting to leave a bar and hail a black or yellow cab (or any colour in-between), prepare for a shock. Nice taxis are very regulated and it’s a mean feat to hail anything bigger than a cycle-taxi on the promenade.

pharmacies collage.jpg
Pharmacies

The French are proud of their pharmacies. Though they don’t offer glitzy eyeshadow or sell super-cheap meal deals à la Boots, French pharmacy has well trained pharmacists (quasi-doctors for simple maladies) and are well-stocked with all manner of pills and potions for every conceivable ailment. Many speak very good English, and most will try to help you overcome any language barrier.

Light switches

Ok, this is an odd guide post, but we promise a helpful one if you’re new to Nice. We’ve read many a guest comment over the years whose holiday would have been better if they had understood the light switches in the hallways of buildings.

Parking in Nice

Most locals use public transport for a reason: driving and parking around Nice city centre isn’t fun, or cheap. Public transport around the city is far more relaxing, easy and kinder to your wallet.

Annual events collage.jpg
Annual events

Thousands of visitors land at Nice airport annually for various events including the Monaco Grand Prix and Cannes film festival. Flights around these dates are sold at a premium, sometimes a hefty one. For example, as of today (8 months in advance) you can pick up Easyjet flights at the beginning of May for around 30 euros return but move the dates to the 23nd May – 28th May and you won’t get a seat for less than 150 euros – triple the price. You can expect it to triple again closer to the date.

Packing

Passports, boarding passes, adaptors, electronics’ chargers, prescription meds, toothbrush, hairbrush… We all know to never forget these things, but we all do. Well, with the stress of deciding what to pack and what to leave behind, something is always bound to go amiss.

Public holidays photo.jpg
Public holidays

Every year, France celebrates a rather generous 11 public holidays, with Bastille Day (14th July) and All Saints Day (1st November) being the most widely celebrated. Bastille Day is France’s national day, and falls on the anniversary of the Storming of the Bastille. It is a huge celebration, with spectacular public fireworks displays, dances, musical performances, and traditional French food. All Saints Day (La Toussaint) is a much more sombre occasion: families get together to honour the lives of deceased relatives, visiting cemeteries and placing flowers (typically chrysanthemums) on their graves.

East-West Tramline

The Ouest-Est Tram Line is almost set to rock and rail! After testing the line throughout September, the plans to have part of the tram line up-and-running in December are looking positive. However, this will only provide transport between Magnan and to le CADAM. So unfortunately, the line won’t yet be of much benefit to our guests staying in the heart of the city.

Shops, restaurants & bars

The French schedule and traditional opening times might not completely mirror what you’re used to home. The French take their lunch and leisure time seriously, although as a tourist hotspot, Nice will have significantly more doors open than in industrial towns.

Exclusive Côté Sud Parfums signature brand

Regular guests may have noticed that our toiletries have changed, as we phased out working with the high street brand L’Occitane to the more exclusive and local Côté Sud Parfum. The change came about earlier this year when we put in our regular order to L’Occitane, and it was refused!
