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.

We were really impressed by the lovely apartment - it was clean, spacious, comfortable and very convenient for our weekend. The owners have obviously spent a lot of time doing the apartment up and maintaining it to a high standard. Mike, the owner, was extremely helpful in answering our questions before we arrived and very prompt in taking us through the booking/deposit process. He arranged for a friend to meet us at the apartment when we arrived and she was also extremely helpful and accommodating. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a holiday in Nice - we loved it and will be back!

Could not be more centrally located, in a pedestrianised area, close to old town shops, outdoor food market and right next door to very pleasant restaurants. Comfortable bed, good bed linens and towels and pillows OK. A tip: if you need to find a hot dryer to dry your washing quickly, there is a self-service launderette 5 minutes walk away just up the Rue de la Boucherie, towards Place Centrale.

There was a lift in the building. I think the apartment is best for one or two people. It is well laid out with good space. The sofa is good to sleep on, with a mattress provided. The Wifi worked throughout my stay. Most attractions are about a ten to fifteen minute walk away, depending on your speed. The 100 bus is a two minute walk away, which takes you to Monaco and Menton for 1.50€. Much cheaper than the train. I found Walter very good to communicate with. On the day of arrival, my train from Paris was delayed for two hours. This meant I would be arriving late in the evening. I was able to contact Walter without a problem. Walter informed the lady with the keys about my late arrival. The lady showed me around the apartment and how everything worked. I would recommend this apartment to my family and friends.
