Things to do

-Museums. An essential one is the Matisse Museum, devoted to the artist who spent much of his life in the area. It’s housed in a Genoese villa from the 1600s and boasts an excellent collection of painting and sculptures. At Cimiez there’s a museum with artefacts and other displays relating to local life in Roman times.

-Dining. There’s a wonderful variety of eateries in the city, and a number of interesting local specialties to try. The most famous is salade nicoise, with boiled eggs, potatoes, anchovies and tuna. Other favourites are fish soup, pan bagnat, which is an upmarket tuna sandwich, and socca, a chickpea flatbread.

-Beaches. The Nice waterfront is a sequence of public and private beaches, most of which are pebbled, but always well maintained. Private options are often a little more convenient as they offer extra services like sunbeds and lockers. The best are Plage Beau Rivage, Castel Plage and Opera Plage, which is the oldest beach club in the city.

-The Old Town and Promenade des Anglais. Nice’s attractive historic quarter, with its painted buildings, definitely merits some exploration, especially in the summer when the narrow streets are shaded from the sun. Meanwhile the Promenade des Anglais is Nice’s famed waterfront, extending for a number of kilometres and featuring impressive turn of the century buildings.

-Coastal scenery. Just outside the city are a number of excellent lookouts offering unforgettable views of the city and Mediterranean. One can be found at Mont Boron, almost 200 metres above the sea and part of a natural park. The nearby village of Èze is the trailhead for memorable coastal walks on the way to Monaco or Cap Ferrat.

Weather in Nice

On holiday at a Nice villa you’ll get Mediterranean weather. Conditions here are moderate all year round, with mild and damp winters, when daily highs reach the mid teens. Spring and autumn weather is a mixture of mild and moderately warm weather – maximum temperatures for April and November are usually in the high teens. The period between May and September is the ideal time for a beach holiday, with very little rainfall and temperatures that rest comfortably around the mid or high-20s during the day.

Travel to Nice

You can reach the city via Nice – Cote d’Azur (NCE) – it’s the third busiest after Paris’ airports and can be reached from the UK via premium and low-cost airlines. Nice has international rail links from Nice-Ville to a number of European countries, and Paris is within a six-hour trip. Cars aren't essential at villas in Nice - there’s a good public transport system, which includes buses and a tramline that was reinstated in 2007. The roads can be busy, and taxis are costly, but a bike rental scheme was instated in 2009 to local acclaim.

It is beautifully furnished, spacious and well taken care of. The main bedroom has a lovely view and I really enjoyed the balcony and the morning sunshine. It has a carrefour just around the corner which was very convenient. Most of the restaurants are in the center of Nice, which is about a 30 minute walk, but you can get a bus. I preferred being outside the center as there were less people. The apartment has WiFi which works best at the back of the apartment. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom is a good size. Overall we really enjoyed staying in the apartment. You will need to bring your own things for the beach. Its a pebble beach, so I would recommend folding chairs or some sort of cusions to make it comfortable as the umbrellas and sunbeds on the beach are quite expensive. We took the hop on hop off bus tour which is a great way to see the city and it takes you to a little town around the coast which is worth spending some time in. Catherine and her family are very helpful and accommodating as we arrived quite late. Her son speaks English which was great as unfortunately we don't speak French. Overall we loved staying in the apartment and would definitely recommend it.

The apartment looks just as it does in the pictures, the cutest and most comfortable stay we could hope for. It is smack dab in the heart of things, so you can go to the bar literally downstairs and walk home, as well as walk to the farmers market every morning and a pleathora of restaurants! They were very thorough with the details and check in process and were so accommodating! I wouldn't stay anywhere else!
