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.

Being six of us, we wanted somewhere where we could be together rather than 3 separate hotel rooms.... somewhere with space to hang out together and enjoy some quality family time. Obviously the photos give an excellent impression of the apartment and almost look too good to be true, but when Sara Jane greeted us and took us inside, we truly felt the WOW factor! Not only is it as stunning as the pictures suggest, but feels so light, airy and spacious, plenty of room for all of us to enjoy. The bedrooms are beautifully and individually decorated and furnished, each with an equally lovely adjacent or en suite bathroom. We were well insulated from the night time hubbub from the street below by the large and efficient double glazed windows...aircon will keep things cool if you choose to have them closed. Super comfortable beds too. The kitchen is a joy to cook in, absolutely everything we could have wanted was there for us, even a Nespresso machine just like ours at home. The large open plan kitchen/lounge/dining area makes for a great space to enjoy time together if you choose to 'dine in', as we did several times. You can really feel and appreciate the love and passion that has gone into creating this property. Nothing has been overlooked or added without reason. The owner, Karine, described herself to me as "an ambassador of Frenchness", something that really shines through, not only in the presentation of the apartment but in the advice and recommendations in old Nice or Vielle Ville. It's a charming and characterful village in its own right, narrow alleys full of interesting shops, great bars and restaurants and great open squares with markets and sunshine. In summary - Apartment - 11/10 - Simply beautiful Old Nice - 11/10 - A charming pocket of Beauté française The owner, Karine - Also charming and a pleasure to deal with
