Holidaymakers searching for holiday rentals in Mandelieu-la-Napoule also enquired about Corsica villas, villas in Sicily and apartments in Nice

Make an apartment in Mandelieu-la-Napoule your home away from home

Cuddled up next to Cannes on the western side of the shared airport, Mandelieu-la-Napoule apartments are sited in a town noted for the Chateau de la Napoule. A famous 14th-century castle, it has been remodelled and repurposed several times, until ownership passed to the wealthy American artist, Henry Clews Jr, that is. Today, the castle is a cultural centre owned by La Napoule Art Foundation. Of course, holiday rentals in Mandelieu-la-Napoule are not only convenient for the glitz and glamour of Cannes, but the towering Alpine hinterland of the Alpes-Maritimes. Ski resorts operate just a short drive away during the winter, often when it's warm enough to split the day between the slopes and the beach. Mandelieu-la-Napoule apartments and villas are also close to two golf courses.

Inside, guests will find everything they need for a comfortable and convenient break – washer/dryers and satellite TV make up the basic necessities, while thoughtful furnishings lend a touch of luxury. Outside, private gardens, swimming pools and BBQ areas are a feature in many, and onsite parking means hiring a car is easy. Priced from just £189 per week, they also offer excellent value for money.

Things to do

Outdoor pursuits: With the excellent golf, mountainous backdrop, abundant marinas, beaches and nightlife, Mandelieu-la-Napoule accommodation couldn't be sited more perfectly for a taste of the 1% lifestyle. From hiking, biking and skiing to swimming and sailing, the active pleasure-seeker will certainly get their fill.

Beaches: The golden-sanded beaches of Cannes are only around three miles from Mandelieu-la-Napoule holiday rentals, but quieter (and nicer) beaches can be found just a little further on around holiday homes in Antibes and Juan-les-Pins. Another option is to head in the other direction for the beaches of Theoule-sur-Mer.

Nightlife: The famous nightlife on the Cote d'Azur is second to none, with the famous casinos, beach bars and restaurants providing top quality food, drink and entertainment at vastly inflated prices. Mandelieu-la-Napoule isn't quite as bad as Cannes when it comes to an outrageous markup, but it's close. By self-catering, however, guests can get that great balance between luxury and practicality.

Shopping: Shopping in Mandelieu-la-Napoule is much more about seeing and being seen than actually buying anything, which should be a relief to bank managers the world over. If guests fancy foraging in the expensive and exclusive boutiques of Cannes, they could consider holiday apartments there. But for souvenirs, the best option is to head inland, far from the well-beaten tourist track.

Culture: The town of Mandelieu-la-Napoule is dominated by the Chateau de la Napoule, the 14th-century castle that's now a monument to the Americans who bought and remodelled it in the early part of the 20th century. Henry Clews Jr, the son of a wealthy New York banker, styled himself a sculptor and painter, and his work is on display throughout the castle. The gardens are particularly beautiful.

Weather in Mandelieu-la-Napoule

Long, hot summers and short, mild winters typify the Mediterranean climate, with summer temperatures usually maxing out at around the 30°C mark. Winters are wetter and milder, with typical highs in the mid-teens. Rainfall is sparse, with clear, sunny days for over 300 days a year. Most of the rainfall occurs during autumn thunderstorms.

Travel to Mandelieu-la-Napoule

Though Mandelieu-la-Napoule does share an airport with Cannes, it's not served by any commercial airlines. Nice Cote d'Azur Airport is the closest major air hub, at 18.5 miles away. Buses are available, as are taxis and hire cars, though the latter option is recommended. Self-drive from the UK and taking the train is also doable. Driving from the UK takes a couple of days, while the train can get to Nice from London in around nine hours.

The house was spotlessly clean and well equipped. There was plentiful comfortable seating and different places to eat both inside and out. It has a beautiful view and a fabulous heated pool. Our 3 year old (who wanted to stay forever) loved the stuffed toys in one of the rooms. There are reasonably steep stairs so you need to keep an eye out if you have a kamikaze toddler like we have... La Napoule is a perfect seaside resort - big enough for all the amenities you want (small supermarket in the town, wonderful ice cream parlour and bakery, good selection of restaurants) but small enough to feel relaxed and peaceful. The big supermarket is a very short drive. Great gently sloping and well protected sandy beaches are short walk away (although its uphill on the way back!), with lots of other options 5 minutes in the car. I have no hesitation in recommending and very much hope that we will return one day.

Rooms very well appointed and plenty of toilet & bathroom facilities. Decor and linen excellent. Close to the lovely sandy beach at Mandelieu, which is also by the harbour so plenty of boats to watch as well. Clean beach with shallow water for quite a way so ideal for young children as well as older ones and adults. Toilets & cafe on beach but also only a very short walk into the village itself with plenty of nice shops and restaurants, including a fantastic icecreams shop. Lots of parking around. Easy distance from most places for sightseeing if you can tear yourself away from the pool & beach. Not too much traffic &, as advertised, hyper market only a short distance away, with nearer boulangerie & supermarket. Really enjoyed our time there and would highly recommend, even though a bit hilly.
