Menton– Known as "The Lemon Party Capital of the World", Menton is located near the France-Italy border which gives holiday homes in the region an Italian flair. The old parts of Menton are largely pedestrian which gives the town most of its charm. Menton offers an array of lively activities such as the colourful Jean Cocteau Museum, beautiful gardens including the Garavan, and magnificent casinos such as the Royal Westminster and Ambassadeurs. For visitors staying in holiday homes in February, be sure to check out the Fête du Citron, which is the town's lemon party.

Nice is one of the most popular spots for holiday rentals along the French Riviera coast. Although Nice is popular amongst young visitors, it has something to offer for family and senior holidaymakers as well. The beaches in Nice consist entirely of gravel and rocks, so visitors staying in Nice holiday homes in the area should bring towels, sandals and cushions. However a few private beaches in Eze have added a layer of sand. These private beaches offer various services from restaurants and bars to lounge chairs for rental. Popular sites in Nice are the ruined castles overlooking the harbour and museums including, The Musee Chagall, Musee Matisse, and Musee et Site Archeologiques de Cimiez.

Alpes-Maritimes Valley - Bordering Italy and Monaco, the Alpes Maritimes is where the mountains and sea meet. Nice holiday villas in the area are scattered along several charming towns which vary in character. St Paul de Vence is an artist town while Mougins is the dining paradise with many colourful restaurants. No matter where you are, all Nice holiday accommodations have breathtaking views.

Antibes - Holiday cottages in Antibes are located in the break between the Bay of Cannes to the south-west and the Baie des Anges to the north east so the views are unbeatable. Antibes is popular amongst French families so for visitors staying at holiday homes are guaranteed an authentic French experience. At night, the streets are crowded with many enjoying outdoor restaurants in the old part of Antibes and in Juan les Pins. Be sure to ride your bike through the hills, shop at posh boutiques in Juan les Pins, visit the Picasso museum, and of course, go to the Cap at night.

Cannes- Known for its international Cannes film festival, Cannes has become synonymous with Hollywood and glamour. However, Cannes hosts a number of other events throughout the year including trade fairs and exhibitions. Cannes holiday rentals in the old town are located along narrow winding streets filled with restaurants and shops. Also when in Cannes, visit the beaches, which are mostly private but cost only around £15 per day. Also look out for the occasional fireworks displays in the bay.

Grasse - Home of the perfume industry, Grasse is built on the side of a hill inland from the coast of the French Riviera. Holiday rentals in Grasse have beautiful views of the Cannes and Antibes coast. Holiday homes in Grasse are ideal for visitors who enjoy outdoor activities, such as hiking in the hills, riding horses, mountain biking, and playing golf and tennis. The most popular gold courses in the area are the Golf Country Club de Saint Donat or the Golf du Grande Bastide. Tennis players should check out the exclusive Tennis Club Plaine Le Vignal which also has a pleasant and cheap restaurant and a swimming pool. For horse riding check out the Club Hippique de La Brague or the Poney Club Ecole Equitation.

Apartment stay in Nice Old town

4 of 5
Very convenient for transport and all places of interest in Nice including The Promenade des Anglais,, flower market,restaurants and shopping. 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

Fabulous apartment!

5 of 5
This is the second time we have been to stay at Naomi and David's apartment so you may have guessed we love it. If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay and chill then this is right for you. The property is very high spec in a secure area with a small private patio/garden which leads to an infinity pool overlooking the sea. Paradise! The owners have spent a considerable amount of time ensuring that everything you need to know about the area and accommodation are to hand and on the odd occasion we needed advice they came back to us straight away. We will be back!
