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.

A key benefit was the large terrace where you could relax on sunbeds or at the table. We appreciated having beach chairs and parasols available for our use. The beach was less than 200 mtrs away. The apartment was very centrally located with easy access to a range of bars and restaurants. Also the railway station is very close by with easy access to the rest of the Cote D'Azur. Barbara and Pascal were excellent hosts and very pleased to help whenever needed. Our week was made perfect with some glorious late September weather.

Great to be so near the port and beaches, and made full use of the sunny terrace and barbecue. Can also recommend trips along the coast from the train station around the corner - so easy and quick to get to other resorts if you wish to explore. Would definitely come back for another holiday.

Is quite a large apartment complex but very quiet and peaceful, the sun loungers were most welcome on the lovely balcony . Large supermarket right next door. Literally 2 minute walk to bus stop which is very cheap, between €1 and €1.50 for most journeys.There are a few bars /restaurants in the complex, but we chose to go into Antibes for more choice and atmosphere. Ivan is extremely helpful and goes out of his way to help and advise you - thank you. Maybe a file with bus timetables, taxi numbers etc would be helpful? Nothing not to like, love to return and thank you for looking after us so well.
