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.

Roxanne greated us with her friendly manner and could not have been more helpful. The flat is brilliantly situated, close to everything. The flat is very clean and has everything you could want. The air conditioning is great and certainly helped us sleep. Will miss staying here. Walking to the Boulanger everyday for fresh croissants. The beach is great, so much going on.

If you arrive by aeroplane Nice airport is a short trip away via the Airport bus. It makes a perfect base for time in the sea, wandering the local area or travelling to other parts - we used bus/train (all good value) to visit Monaco, Cannes, Tende (excellent mountain train journey to a quaint village), St Paul de Vence & Eze, both medieval towns. We also made use of the new Tram system. Locally, besides wandering the many shops and promenade front we visited the Castle park, Archaeological museum & the Russian Cathedral. We really enjoyed the very modern Massena Square, especially spectacular with its illuminations at night. The apartment (owner, Anthony, is excellent and will reply to any questions you have instantly and the local lady, Pauline, that looks after the apartment ensured we were presented with an immaculate base for our 2 weeks) is very modern, clean and contains all you need for your holiday. There were 4 of us, for 2 weeks, the apartment worked beautifully for us with regard to it's comfort and any domestics needed such as clothes washing or cooking. There are many restaurants within moments of the apartment. Also there are many supermarkets within Nice and a very good one just a short wander along the road from the apartment. The air conditioning was truly appreciated by us as was the balcony with its fantastic view - perfect to dine from especially maybe at breakfast as the day begins or late evening as the day draws to a close. This apartment is a true find and will make a perfect Nice based holiday!

It was super clean, very spacious, large terrace where we had our breakfasts. Everything we needed was in there. The location is very convenient, everything is very close - restaurants, bars, patisseries, etc. 5-7 min walk to the beach. There is a very lovely patisserie round the corner where you can get fresh croissants and bread for breakfast. It was very pleasant to come back to this flat after long days in the sun. We travelled from Paris to Nice by train. Our train stopped in Marselle and we've been told that there won't be any trains until next morning. So we had to take the taxi to get to Nice. We were very warmly greeted on our arrival by Sylvette, a very nice lady who cleaned the flat and her children. Sylvette offered his help regarding to write a letter to Marselle train station and to claim a compensation. He wrote us a letter, he filled in necessary forms, he did a lot to help us. We felt like we have not been left alone, he took care of us. Defiantly planning to come back and would be very happy stay there again. Amazing apartment, great owner! 100% would recommend it!!! Thank you for being so nice. Mareks &Natalija.
