First stop: the downtown shopping centre Nice Etoile (30 avenue Jean-Médecin, +33 4 92 17 38 17,, which has just been renovated. Here you’ll find Lancel for accessories, André for chic and cheap shoes,Princesse Tam Tam for lingerie, IKKS and Okaîdi for kids clothes and BCBG Max Azria for evening clothes.

It would be a shame to return to the ship without having picked up some glazed fruit jam, which can be found near the port at Florian Confectionary (Le Pont du Loup, +33 4 93 59 32 91, Here you can also sample the products and visit the factory. For some beautifully canned olive oil, head to Alziari (14, rue St-François-de-Paule, +33 4 93 62 94 03,, which many gourmets reckon sells the best olive oil in the French Riviera. Hunt for dried-lavender sachets among the stalls at the Cours Saleya flower market (in the old city, one block from the Quai des Etats-Unis), which is open every morning except Mondays.

You’ll find trendy, fashionable clothes for men and women at Antic Boutik (19 rue de la Prefecture,+33 4 93 62 66 10, Façonnable (10 rue de Paradis, +33 4 93 87 58 14, is an easy-to-wear local brand, designed for the French Riviera.

Two fantastic furniture stores in Nice are Loft Design Store (25 rue de la Buffa, +33 4 93 16 09 09,, where you’ll find high-end Italian design furniture, and Henri Dunant La Romarine(15 Boulevard Victor Hugo, +33 4 93 82 40 86), which is the place to look for more exotic furniture. Côté Maison (14 rue de la Liberté, +33 4 93 87 53 01, sells homeware, including tea and gourmet food. Baobab (10 rue du Marché,+33 4 93 80 28 80), in the old city, is a boutique that sells decorative and design objects. It’s filled with reasonably priced gift ideas.

Vintage aficionados will love the replicas of ancient design rings at Diagram (11 Cours Saleya,+33 4 93 80 33 71). And fleamarket lovers should head to Place Robilante, close to the port, from Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 6pm. Stop by booth 29 and ask Sophie to help you find vintage furniture and well as a selection of clothes.

 A great article written by Liz Fleming for France Guide Prestige 2010. Thanks Liz. Merci à Liz Fleming pour cet article qui paraitra dans France Guide Prestige 2010 (en anglais, désolé pour mes lecteurs non anglophones).

france guide magazine, oct 2009

If your fairy godmother were to drop by to offer a career switch, she’d probably suggest Anne Davené-Vantalon’s job. What could be better than working as a personal shopper in the most glamorous spots in France, exploring chic boutiques for exquisite treasures—and all on someone else’s credit card?

It’s an occupation designed to make the most of Davené-Vantalon’s natural good taste and enthusiasm for helping others find precisely the right item, whether it be a private villa, a stunning designer gown or simply a tiny but much-loved treat. “One client,” Davené-Vantalon recalls, “contacted me for help in finding a cookie that his wife had particularly loved during a visit to Nice.” His wife’s birthday was coming up and the doting husband wanted to surprise her. The challenge was that he couldn’t remember the name of the bakery. “I searched the city, taking photos of shops and cookies and sending them to him until we found the right one,” Davené-Vantalon smiles. “Then I sent him a box by airmail.”

Davené-Vantalon’s services are customized to meet the needs of her clients. If shopping isn’t on your list of favorite pastimes or if, like our cookie enthusiast, you don’t happen to be in the vicinity, you can provide a list of what you need and your personal shopper will begin searching. “Unless the item requested is of a specific brand, most of my shopping is done at unique, creative multi-brand stores where I can find special items. Although I enjoy shopping for clothing and accessories, what I really love is gift shopping with, or for,my customers!”

Her hunting ground is the most elegant area imaginable—the French Riviera. “I work in Nice, Cannes, Monaco and now Saint-Tropez as well.” Even Davené-Vantalon’s commutes, and those she arranges for the clients who join her on personally guided shopping excursions, are chic. “Although most shopping tours are designed to be easily walkable, I can arrange transportation by car for Nice, Cannes and Monaco and by boat or helicopter for Saint-Tropez. I can also book accommodation in hotels or private villas.” She will, of course, obtain the best table for lunch.

Davené-Vantalon’s service leaves no detail to chance, but is less expensive than one might expect. Personal shopping fees are based on the price of the item purchased, and the amount of research required to find it. Perhaps the most important service Davené-Vantalon offers clients is her graceful entrée to the world’s most exclusive shopping scene. While a newcomer to such ultra-fashionable shops as Chanel, Celine, Hermès, Sonia Rykiel, Prada, Akris, Bottega Veneta and Armani might be intimidated by the often icily elegant shop attendants, Davené-Vantalon will provide a reassuring sense of belonging. She’ll also ensure that you make the most of trends, seasons and celebrations. Our personal shopper advises, for example, that “Saint-Tropez is going to be a very successful shopping attraction, but only during the summer months. Most shops close down by October.”
