The "Poetes" district is located in Nice in the extension of the Liberation area, around the Chambrun Park and near the old Ray stadium, between Cimiez and Saint-Maurice. The streets have the name of poets : Alfred de Musset, Georges Sand or Charles Baudelaire.
The Chambrun Park is an emblematic place of this quiet and family district, including the Temple of Diana (also called temple of love) built in Carrara marble by the Bühler brothers, and which stands proudly in the Avenue Chateaubriand.
The district of Poets was created after 1927 in homage to the French literature. Thus, at the turn of the streets Andre Chenier, Paul Bounin or Edmond Rostand, we can find old mansions of Art Deco style, lovely houses « belle epoque » and more contemporary buildings.
This environment, close to shops, schools, tramway and the Liberation market, makes this district a privileged and popular neighborhood
