Make a holiday apartment in Colomars your home away from home

HomeAway makes it easy to pick the Colomars holiday apartment that fits the bill. This commune is in the hills above Nice, a little withdrawn from the coast. Most holiday homes in Colomars take advantage of the elevated setting to give you sumptuous views of wooded hillsides and out to the blue Mediterranean. If you’re here to take it easy, then private pools and sweeping gardens mean you’ll hardly need to leave your holiday apartment in Colomars. But there’s also a world of interesting things to see and do – fashionable resorts, the bustle of Nice and enchanting hilltop villages, just for starters.

Things to do

-Vence. One of the most attractive cities in the Riviera’s hinterland is Vence. Still ringed by its original walls, you can only reach the medieval old town by passing through gates in the ramparts. Once inside you can discover elegant squares and buildings like the Tower of Saint-Lambert from the 1100s and a legendary ash tree, gifted to the city in the 1500s by King François I.

-Walks. Just north of Colomars, between the village of Castagniers is a bio reserve set within a dark valley full of geological interest. There are waterfalls, canyons and caves here, as well as an old viaduct built to transfer water to 19th Century oil mills. Because sunlight only penetrates the valley for a short period each day the area boasts plant life that is most unusual for this part of France.

-Beaches. The city of Nice has seven kilometres of clean pebble beaches, 20 of which are public and 15 of which are private. It’s often worth paying to spend a day at a private beach due to the facilities, with walkways that offer comfortable access to the sea. For fine sandy beaches you could make your way along to Antibes and Juan-les-Pins.

-Nice for culture. The Riviera has long been connected to the art world, and Nice is no different. There are four fabulous art museums in the city – one devoted to post-impressionist Matisse, one for Chagall, a modern art gallery featuring work by Warhol and Lichtenstein, and finally the Museum of Asian art. Nice’s old town is also lovely, full of tight, shaded streets with tall, pastel-painted houses.

-Nice for fun. Nice has shopping, nightlife and dining to beat most cities. The main shopping street is Avenue Jean Medecin, where you can find the big high-street stores, as well as the mall Nice Etoile. For upmarket shops, there’s Galeries Lafayette on Rue Masséna and a host of fashion houses on Rue Paradis and Rue de Suède. Don’t forget to try the famed local specialities like salade niçoise, socca and pissaladière.

Weather in Colomars

If you visit a holiday rental in Colomars during the summer then warm weather awaits. With a quintessential Mediterranean climate, the area gets daily highs above 20 degrees from May to October. The hottest and driest conditions occur from mid-June to early-September, when temperatures can top 30 degrees and there are only a couple of wet days a month. The fringe seasons of autumn and spring bring some warmth as well as some cooler, wetter weather. Winters are rarely harsh here, and normally see daily highs in the low-teens.

Travel to Colomars

Nice (NCE) is the airport for Colomars holiday homes. The commune is around 15 minutes north of the terminal by car. Nice Airport is third below the two Paris airports when it comes to passenger numbers, and receives plenty of traffic from Britain, especially during the summer. It’s a simple drive to Colomars – you can just take the Route de Grenoble north, joining the M414 after a few minutes. Colomars also has its own train station, and you can catch a service from the airport.

The apartment is well equipped,however access is via a few flights of stairs which could be a problem for anyone with mobility problems.We just about managed,but enjoyed our stay

The white glove service matched the elegance and serenity of the apartment. Air conditioning in every room, gorgeous windows, and a well appointed kitchen. Karine was easy to work with and responded right away. We would highly recommend.
