    Nestled in the hills above Nice and Monaco, villas in Cantaron are superbly placed to take advantage of the Alps and coastline of the French Riviera; they're just one concentration of a diverse range of holiday accommodation HomeAway offers in the Alpes-Maritimes Valleys. The proximity of the large city of Nice to Cantaron accommodation means visitors have access to a broad range of facilities and attractions, but the advantage of somewhere peaceful to retreat to after a hectic day in the mountains or at the beach. Cantaron holiday rentals are in one of a cluster of small villages that back onto a large mountainous area of wilderness leading up into the Alps, which is liberally latticed with bridleways, perfect for the hiking, biking or horse-trekking enthusiast.

    The villages surrounding Cantaron accommodation are served by a convenient major supermarket, so self-caterers don't have to make the trek into Nice for food shopping. Nearly all holiday homes come with a fully equipped kitchen, pool, barbecue area and internet access – though additional amenities are available, such as the ability to accommodate pets, or expansive gardens and terraces.

    Things to do

    Beaches: Villefranche-sur-Mer has the closest sandy beach, at around eight miles away. For visitors wishing to be closer to the sea, HomeAway does have holiday accommodation in Villefranche, but it does tend to be noisier and a little more busy. A couple of more beaches can be found at Beaulieu-sur-Mer, located a mile or two to the east of Villefranche.

    Food and drink: There are a couple of restaurants and cafés convenient for holiday accommodation in Cantaron, but the choice really expands throughout the nearby villages. Nice, of course, has a larger selection still, specialising in organic wines and the delicious crepes made with chickpea flour known as 'socca'.

    Outdoor pursuits: The beach outlets and marinas along the coast supply equipment for a host of watersports. On the Cote d'Azur, scuba diving and sailing are particularly popular. The nearby Alps are great for skiing, climbing, hiking and mountain biking, and the latter two activities are also well covered in the hills immediately surrounding Cantaron.

    Shopping: As a picturesque suburb of Nice, which has arguably the best shopping on the Cote d'Azur, Cantaron makes a great base for shopaholics. The main shopping area is pedestrianised, and features an eclectic collection of clothing boutiques, antique shops, and local crafts outlets. The flower market in particular is a must-see.

    Weather in Cantaron
