La Gaude, which is little over half an hour away from Nice by car, is an attractive residential area that is becoming an increasingly popular base for those flocking to the famous city, and has an expanding portfolio of holiday rental accommodation as a result.
The streets of the old village are narrow and winding, and hide amongst them a combination of homes with attractive facades and small shops, cafes and other businesses.

La Gaude also has a number of sites of historical interest, the majority of which date back to the 17th or 18th centuries, such as the 17th century Saint Pierre de l’Assomption Church and the 18th century Ste Victorie Church. There are also more modern sights to enjoy, the main one of which is a large complex on the banks of the Var River, which acts as a huge eco-museum.
The famous city of Nice is the commonly the next port of call for those staying in La Gaude, and its top beaches, nightlife and cultural attractions need little introduction. It is also strongly recommended, however, that you also visit some of Nice’s attractive suburb areas, such as St-Laurent-du-Var (15km), which offers a relaxed destination to visit – without having to sacrifice too much on the entertainment front.
