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.

Super Apartment in a super city

5 of 5
We feel very lucky to have stayed in Laura's apartment which we found ideal from every aspect. It was spotlessly clean, spacious enough for 2, 4 could easily be comfortable there. It was quiet at night but literally 50 yards from the old town action. Great shower, comfortable bed, reliable and fast wifi, large screen TV, you couldn't fault it. Laura was a very friendly host who gave us guides and tips on how to make the most of our visit. Nice is wonderful, what a beautiful city. We were there for a week and made the most of the old town, the port area, the magnificent Massena Square, the promenade, the Russian Cathedral, the shops ..... best holiday we've been on. Also we visited Monaco and Monte Carlo, Cannes and Ville France. We really didn't want to come home as there were so many other things we wanted to do but didn't have the time for. It could be pricey, a pint is about 7 Euros and you will struggle to get a meal in a restaurant for under 15 Euros. However Laura's tips of buying lunch in supermarkets, taking advantage of the many happy hours there which generally run from 5pm to 9pm when a pint is reduced to 4 Euros made it more affordable for us. We are a couple in our mid 50s, reasonably fit so we walked everywhere in Nice. However there are very reasonable bus and tram services that can be used. I just want to thank Laura again for the use of her apartment, in a word, magnifique.

Great location in beautiful town

5 of 5
Light, airy, roomy with great views. Awesome internet speed (92Mbs). Very clean place which was a pleasure to spend a week in. Sea views are double aspect and triple glazing insulates the apartment from road noise. Air conditioning is quiet and efficient and was only needed in noon day sun. Proximity to shops, bars and restaurants makes this the ideal place to stay.
