Make an apartment in the Alps-Maritimes Valleys your home away from home

The Alps-Maritimes Valleys cut through the southwestern corner of the Alps, straddling the border of France and Italy. Rustic villages perch high on the slopes, commanding stunning views and easy access to a host of mountain, river and coastal activities. HomeAway offers a wide range of holiday homes in the Alps-Maritimes Valleys, many with their own gardens and convenient parking.

Most Alps-Maritimes Valleys rentals are pet and family friendly, though regrettably few are wheelchair accessible. Alps-Maritimes Valleys holiday apartments typically feature fully-equipped kitchens with laundry facilities and sometimes BBQ areaa, access to a pool, internet access and satellite TV/DVD player. Thanks to the more clement summer temperatures at elevation, only a few properties are equipped with air-conditioning.

Things to do

Winter sports: During the winter, Alps-Maritimes Valleys holiday rentals are perfectly positioned for access to the Alpine slopes. This area of the alps is very popular with skiers and snowboarders, thanks to its location adjacent to the tourism hotspots on the Cote d'Azur, which offer unique contrast to the high mountain activities.

Beaches: The 70 miles of French Riviera coastline running from the smart apartments of Marseilles to the villas of Menton is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful in the world. The stretch of beach at Cannes, where HomeAway has a selection of holiday apartments available, is artificially sanded for the summer, whereas the more common pebbled beaches of Nice are a consequence of the draining rivers. Private beaches abound, so prebooking a spot is often a good idea.

Nightlife: The Cote d'Azur is renowned for its nightlife, especially if high-class casinos, restaurants, and nightclubs are desired. It's not all glitz and glamour, however, and there are plenty of more reasonably priced establishments for the fiscally cautious holidaymaker.

Outdoor pursuits: The rugged hills north of Toulon, the crag of Saint-Jeanette to the north of Nice, and the hills above Monaco all provide excellent climbing opportunities. Larger areas like those around Vence holiday homes and the Roya Valley can get more Alpine in scope. The Alps-Maritimes themselves, of course, are paradise for climbers and hikers, especially the Mercantour National Park, with hundreds of miles of trails and paths.

Shopping: The shops, boutiques and malls of the French Riviera provide possibly the most exclusive and expensive shopping in the world, which is why this area is so well known as a haunt of both celluloid and real-world royalty. Window shopping and people watching, of course, come completely free of charge.

Weather in the Alps-Maritimes Valleys

Though the Cote d'Azur has a mediterranean climate, there can often be a marked difference between the conditions on the coast and those inland, especially as the elevation increases. Cool and fresh at altitude can be hot and muggy at sea level. The average temperatures during the summer reach well above 20°C, and winters are in the mid-teens – the region basks in over 300 days of sunshine per year.

Travel to the Alps-Maritimes Valleys

Driving across France from the UK isn't a particularly long trip, and is easily completed in a couple of days. Flying in can be done to Nice or Marseille, with the Nice Cote d'Azur airport serving as the operating centre for easyJet. By rail, a direct link from Paris takes about six hours and costs around €100, arriving at Gare Nice Ville station, one of the three in the city. There are also long-distance bus and boat services.

All was very clean and the apartment was very comfortable for 5 adults and had everything you needed, including coffee machine, fridge freezer dishwasher etc. It was a 2 minute walk to the ski hire shop, which in turn was next to the venicular which takes you down to the main slopes, so a max 5 minutes of total walking time. Very friendly staff in the local ski shop who also were able to arrange ski lessons. We really enjoyed our stay and would happily recommend it. Our only advise is to tell Christos to come an hour before you're due to leave, as he holds your passport. We had a very nervous 15 minutes waiting for him to arrive, with us all sitting in the car worried we'd miss our flight!

The house was very cosy and had all the facilities that we needed. It was very warm once the sun broke over the top of the hill at 9.20am! We were able to swim in the plunge pool, which was a good temperature.(Robbie went in the river which was freezing!!) We barbecued most nights. Lovely week. Robbie and Helen Swales
