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 This commune is in the hills above Nice, a little withdrawn from the coast.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.

Fabulous days in Nice

5 of 5
We had an amazing time in Nice, staying at the Dalpozza apartment, which was everything it said it was and more. Very spacious and clean and having two bathrooms was a plus. The beds were amazingly comfortable - we slept liked logs. Perfect location and so convenient for everything - a little supermarket across the road, which had everything you needed and lovely reasonably priced restuarants on the street. It was only two minutes to the promenade and the tourist information office, where you could pick up bus timetables, maps etc.and general information. We only had four full days in Nice, but visited lots of places. We spent one day wandering around the old town and harbour and along the beautiful promenade and other days spent visiting Monaco, Antibes and the village of Eze - all a must to do and very easy to get around on the buses, which were very cheap. We must return to see more of this spectacular area.

Great property, great location

5 of 5
The apartment was a perfect choice for us. 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

Cosy and comfortable

5 of 5
Six very comfortable nights just before Christmas in Alan and Ciaran’s beautifully fitted out apartment. Could not be more centrally located, in a pedestrianised area, close to old town shops, outdoor food market and right next door to very pleasant restaurants. Comfortable bed, good bed linens and towels and pillows OK. A tip: if you need to find a hot dryer to dry your washing quickly, there is a self-service launderette 5 minutes walk away just up the Rue de la Boucherie, towards Place Centrale.
