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.

There is no air con in the room, but you don't need it due to the sea breeze coming through. 10 minute walk to the train station and only 15 minutes to the promenade. Restaurants only 10 minute walk too. Would definitely recommend this apartment to our friends and family. Paul and Ellie

                                                                Beautiful apartment in the heart of Nice

                                                                5 of 5
                                                                We stayed here for 11 nights in June 2016, we were joined by our two adult children for 6 nights of our holiday. The apartment is very comfortable and easily spacious enough for 4 adults, the photographs on the HomeAway sight are an absolute true picture of the decor and cleanliness of the apartment. Very well equipped with everything needed for a break away. There was some lovely little touches too, the L'Occitane toiletries in the bathroom and chilled bottle of water and wine in the fridge, which was lovely as we arrived quite late in the evening due to a flight delay. Nice is a beautiful city to visit and this apartment is so well situated to explore the city and the surrounding area. There is a small supermarket right outside the door, with a Monoprix less than 5 minutes walk, as is the heart of the shopping area. The Promenade des Anglais, just over 10 mins away and the railway station is less than a 10 minute walk with regular trains to Monaco and Cannes. Communication with Jane, the owner, was fantastic and her prompt replies on any questions we had, made the preparations and the actual holiday run extremely smoothly. Claire who met us with the apartment keys was also very helpful. I would highly recommend this beautifully decorated apartment in the heart of Nice and we would have no hesitation in returning to it the next time we visit this beautiful city.
