Make an apartment in Cantaron your home away from home

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

The Mediterranean climate features long, hot summers and mild winters, moderated by the sea to take the edge off extremes. This means average highs in the summer rarely exceed 28°C, or fall below the teens in the winter. Precipitation is scant, concentrating in the autumn months of October and November.

Travel to Cantaron

Cantaron is only 13 miles from Nice Cote d'Azur Airport, the major travel hub for the region serviced by most of the major international airlines. Direct flights to the UK are frequent, and the choice of budget carriers is broad. The south of France is also quite driveable from the UK if guests prefer to bring their own car, and the train too, is convenient, more than halving the driving time.

Beautifully stylish with the owners having a real flair for design. Great for an escape from the worst of the British weather. Enjoyed all the facilities of the villa - efficient heating, wifi, tv and dvd- on inclement days and was lovely to get out and about in the area when it was sunny. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

It is the perfect size for a family with kids, and the garden and the upstairs pool gave our kids the opportunity to have areas where they could "Escape the parents" and we could relax knowing they were in a secured area. It was clean, roomy, lots of light and enjoyable. Everything is a quick walk, the sea, the supermarket, the old town and restaurants. The owner was very helpful and accommodating. Always a quick response to emails. It was our first time in Menton, and we really loved the area, you are in the cote d' azur but don't feel like your in a holiday resort. Everybody is very friendly and the town is very well connect with transport. All in all a great property and a great location, we highly recommend this property and Menton. We will be back, Johanna

We were really impressed by the lovely apartment - it was clean, spacious, comfortable and very convenient for our weekend. The owners have obviously spent a lot of time doing the apartment up and maintaining it to a high standard. Mike, the owner, was extremely helpful in answering our questions before we arrived and very prompt in taking us through the booking/deposit process. He arranged for a friend to meet us at the apartment when we arrived and she was also extremely helpful and accommodating. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a holiday in Nice - we loved it and will be back!
