You might fancy a chic apartment in the beautiful old town, or favour a luxury penthouse on Nice’s waterfront with unbroken views of the Mediterranean – whatever you’re looking for you’ll be able to specify extra details as you browse.

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.

                                        5 of 5
                                        We stayed in the apartment Saleya in about a week. This is the 4th floor . The apartment was made of one old construction . You may know the stories in the walls. The front door must have been made for many centuries and the largest I've seen. The stairs up to the apartment is worn but fascinating and go in . We were 4 people and enjoyed every day. It was close to everything you need. In addition, the apartment is equipped with washing machine, dishwasher and other equipment. Good beds and a cozy living room . Good view over the roofs of Nice. Where you get a delicious sea breeze through the window . Regarding landlord Rosemary as she was of great assistance . We arrived late into Nice by train yet she stood waiting for us . We forgot again belongings and she took care of it and handed it back to us. Thanks for a great stayed Rosemary .

                                        We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the apartment, the rooftop terrace was used from morning to night. In a great location for shopping ,beach and eating out. The apartment was exactly as quoted in the review. Hope to return again for a short break.

                                        Perfect place to stay in Nice!

                                        This was our second visit to Nice, and we had been recommended this apartment. Laura (the lovely owner), met us there as she said she would, and showed us around the apartment and a map of the area with suggestions of places to eat and where the nearest supermarket was. The apartment was just as it looked in the photos, and wonderfully clean. It's situation in Nice was perfect, in the old town, but just far enough off the main thoroughfare to not be too noisy!
