Why do you love this travel destination?
I’ve never been somewhere that could be so chic, yet coastal and relaxed at the same time. The city is beautiful in every aspect. The locals are outstandingly kind and welcoming. The South of France gives a high end feel whilst being easy going and homely.
Favourite things to do there?
This place has something for everyone. The beaches are gorgeous and we loved visiting the local beach clubs to swim and relax with a good book. The streets are beautiful to walk through with delicious restaurants on every corner. We adored staying in old town and visiting all the neighbouring towns. Our favourites were Cap-d’Ail and Antibes.
Best place to eat and drink?
Mamma Mia had a warm and trendy vibe with an impressive cocktail list that was surprisingly inexpensive. When it came to brunch we found the most delightful cafes, our two favourites were Paper Plane (with plenty of vegan and whole food options) and Cafe Fino 3 different version of smashed avo with eggs). For dinner one definitely stood out that we ended up veering back to repeatedly, Le Felix Faure. It illuminated a gorgeous parisian cafe vibe and sitting outside in a warm summer air made it all the more special.
Any packing tips?
Nice is definitely somewhere that anything goes. You could see people rocking anything and everything. I would say a cute going out dinner outfit is essential, a statement maxi or colourful matching set would be fun whilst matching the elegant vibrance of the city. Also, bring your favourite swimwear to pair with a flattering overswim option. This will b crucial to take you from the seaside to the city.
What’s on your travel playlist?
I literally googled Parisian playlist whilst I was here. I love getting into the feel of the travel destination. There’s also a variety of street performers to make you ears and heart sing.
What are you reading/watching?
I read The American Roommate Experiment and Maybe Someday whilst in Nice. Two gorgeous romance stories that were absolute page turners. I also gave into rewatching Emily in Paris to maintain the French theme.
