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.

    Great location in the heart of the old town. Perfect for exploring Nice and surrounding area

    4 of 5
    The flat is on the top floor and although a bit of a climb still doable by an unfit over 50s. The living area is open and spacious with well fitted out kitchen lots of light and air from the three large windows. Bedrooms are good size. We did not make use of balcony which is off one of the bedrooms as it is small and overlooked although that adds to the charm of the old town but maybe more for Summer. Your day would start with the church bells and watch out for 12 o clock gun which is not for the faint hearted. If you want to experience the vibe of this wonderful city then this apartment is perfect. Martin and Chloe were excellent hosts very informative and accommodating in terms of a later checkout. Look forward to visiting Nice again as 4 days was not long enough.

    Super Apartment in a super city

    5 of 5
    We feel very lucky to have stayed in Laura's apartment which we found ideal from every aspect. It was spotlessly clean, spacious enough for 2, 4 could easily be comfortable there. It was quiet at night but literally 50 yards from the old town action. Great shower, comfortable bed, reliable and fast wifi, large screen TV, you couldn't fault it. Laura was a very friendly host who gave us guides and tips on how to make the most of our visit. Nice is wonderful, what a beautiful city. We were there for a week and made the most of the old town, the port area, the magnificent Massena Square, the promenade, the Russian Cathedral, the shops ..... best holiday we've been on. Also we visited Monaco and Monte Carlo, Cannes and Ville France. We really didn't want to come home as there were so many other things we wanted to do but didn't have the time for. It could be pricey, a pint is about 7 Euros and you will struggle to get a meal in a restaurant for under 15 Euros. However Laura's tips of buying lunch in supermarkets, taking advantage of the many happy hours there which generally run from 5pm to 9pm when a pint is reduced to 4 Euros made it more affordable for us. We are a couple in our mid 50s, reasonably fit so we walked everywhere in Nice. However there are very reasonable bus and tram services that can be used. I just want to thank Laura again for the use of her apartment, in a word, magnifique.
