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.

Would recommend this apartment to others

5 of 5
We chose very well. We arrived at Nice Airport, and used an Uber car to pick us up. No problem, the cost to our front door was 40 Euros. Lovely suprise, the apartment is light and airey, the outside tiled , and secluded garden area was the best thing. We used the outside from am to pm, still been hot at 9pm, fabulous for relaxing and winding down. Superb location, we used the train every day to visit our favourite places. I would like to add that a minor problem was that we never seemed to get the air con working, also the oven, it took us some serious working out. Once we managed to work the oven , we were thrilled with its performance. It is not at all easy though to understand the instruction booklet, and my man is a real techi.It would be helpful i think to be physically shown the workings of both these essential items . Other than this little niggle, we loved the apartment, and would certainly recommend it to our friends, and would certainly return. Lez and Julia
