Holidaymakers searching for holiday rentals in Golfe-Juan also enquired about Sardinia villas, villas to rent in Marseille and self catering apartments in Nice

Make an apartment in Golfe-Juan your home away from home

Golfe-Juan's primary claim to fame is it is where Napoleon came ashore after escaping the island of Elba. But this is far from all the resort has to offer – Golfe-Juan holiday villas lie in the gentle coastal foothills of the Alpes-Maritimes, meaning guests have competing access to Alpine slopes and trails, and the shimmering waters of the Mediterranean. It's not unheard of for guests staying at Golfe-Juan accommodation to spend the morning on the ski slopes and the afternoon on the beach. Most Golfe-Juan rentals also have convenient access to fishing and golfing facilities; some, vineyards.

Most offer parking, for guests looking to hire a car, and around half of the properties offer private gardens – perfect for that lazy afternoon in the sun. Inside, holidaymakers will find everything they need for a comfortable and convenient stay: dishwashers; washer/dryers; satellite TV; tennis courts – ok, so they don't all have tennis courts, but a select few offer incredible luxury features and fittings.

Things to do

Outdoor pursuits: Golfe-Juan villas provide a great base for active guests. The mountains of the Alpes-Maritimes provide skiing and boarding in the winter and hiking and biking in the summer, while the Mediterranean coast, of course, is a hive of watersport activity.

Beaches: The nearest beaches to Golfe-Juan apartments are typically private affairs belonging to restaurants or bars, but can be booked for the day, the price usually including sundries or special offers to entice the punters in. There is a public beach about a mile to the northeast, however, for those who understandably baulk at the prices.

Nightlife: The seafront promenade is the place to see and be seen in Golfe-Juan. Lined with restaurants and bars, during the summer throngs of holidaymakers congregate here to party. For a quieter time, the watering holes and eateries in the hills of Vallauris provide a more peaceful retreat.

Shopping: Local crafts of glass, ceramics and olive-wood carving can be found in the pretty hillside town of Vallauris immediately inland of Golfe-Juan, which makes for great browsing and gathering of nick-nacks. If tastes can stretch to the scandalous markups in pricing, the amazing shopping town of Antibes is nearby, as is Cannes, where a further selection of luxury holiday homes is available.

Culture: The former Vallauris Castle is now a museum in three parts: the National Picasso Museum, the Magnelli Museum and the Ceramics Museum. Vallauris' history as a pottery town meant many ceramic artists as well as craftsmen plied their trade here, establishing its reputation as a centre of excellence.

Weather in Golfe-Juan

The climate on the Cote d'Azur is characterised by long, hot summers and mild winters. Being adjacent to the warm Mediterranean means cold winter weather is the exception rather than the rule, with temperatures rarely approaching freezing. Typical winters will bottom out at around 6°C, while the summers can reach the 32°C. Most rain falls in October and November.

Travel to Golfe-Juan

Golfe-Juan is only 13 miles away from the Nice Cote d'Azur Airport, which is the major air travel hub in the region, and the second-busiest airport in France. Every major airline connects to Nice, including budget options like Monarch, easyJet and Jet2.com. Buses run regularly to and from the airport, but guests miss out a lot if they don't take the opportunity to drive through the James Bond country of the French Riviera themselves. Indeed, driving to Golfe-Juan from the UK is quite doable in two days, as is taking the train down in considerably less time.

My family of two adults and two young children stayed for about 5 weeks during July and August 2017 and had the most wonderful time. The apartment is clean, neat and well stocked with all the essentials. We truly felt at home for the duration of our stay with only need of groceries from the market within short walking distance. Also, the beach, train station and bus station are very nearby, which was very convenient. Barbara and Pascal were excellent hosts. They were there for any need that arose and always friendly and easy to work with. I would highly recommend this place and hope to be able to stay again in the future!

It is very stylish, and although small it has everything that you could need for a perfect holiday. In fact it is a home from home. The swimming pool and the grounds that the apartment is situated in are stunning and it is such a convenient location to Glofe Juan where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. We ventured to Cannes for a day trip which was easily accessible by a quick and inexpensive bus, but we were happy to quickly return to Golfe Juan where the atmosphere is much more peaceful and idyllic. Françoise and her husband were perfect hosts offering to collect and drop us from and to the airport so we didn't need to hire a car or bother with taxis or public transport. They gave us the scenic route from the airport to show us the beautiful sights of the Côte D'Azure and were so thoughtful by stocking the fridge and cupboards with some essential items as well as having a fresh flower bouquet as as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary! We will definitely return to this beautiful place.
