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 This commune is in the hills above Nice, a little withdrawn from the coast.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

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

The weather was glorious throughout, and we more or less lived in the swimming pool. The pool went from a shallower end to about 7 feet deep, and a variety of inflatable rings, etc was available. The listing was accurate about the facilities etc available - there are three double bedrooms, and extra beds were provided for the two children. Sheets and towels are changed at the end of each week. There is a barbecue in the garden. The villa is located about 15km outside Nice, up in the hills, and the approach roads are uphill and twisty, with some hairpin bends. The approach to Chemin du Golfan is very narrow. There are no shops in walking distance, so you should stock up at the St Isidore LeClerc (on the road out of Nice) before you arrive. The nearest village is Colomars, about 10 minutes away by car, and this has a pharmacie, boulangerie, delicatessen and bar, as well as a very good restaurant, 'L'Escapade'. We also had an excellent meal at the hotel there. We made brief trips to Cannes, Eze and Monte Carlo, as well as into Nice itself, and to a nearby winery, Chateau Bellet, but we really never wantedto leave the villa at all! The property is well-maintained, and kept very clean, including the pool. We would unreservedly recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet holiday, with the option of day-trips. The hosts keep a close eye on things, and Jean Marie cooked us a special pizza one night before we left.

The only drawbacks were the small work surfaces & the lack of air conditioning (it did have a fan though).Overall it was good value for money & we had an enjoyable stay in the apartment.
