Make a holiday villa in North Nice your home away from home

A good number of tourists partaking of holidays in France’s Cote d’Azur region shack up in holiday rentals in North Nice during their stay. This section of the touristy Nice boasts a couple of attractions of its own as well. The neighbourhood of Cimiez, for instance, boasts ruins from the time of Roman occupation. It is also a magnet for art lovers thanks to the collections of works by acclaimed modern artists displayed in various museums. The most readily available form of holiday accommodation in North Nice is family villas, strategically located in hills overlooking the city of Nice as well as the harbour and sea. Here visitors will find a host of facilities including barbecues, WiFi and swimming pools. HomeAway has a broad range of accommodation options to suit different tastes.

Things to do

-Museums: Those who know their art will want to visit the Musee Matisse which is found on the Avenue des Arenes de Cimiez. Displayed in this roomy 17th century villa are paintings by legendary modern artists Henri Matisse. Another museum, the Musee National Message Biblique Marc Chagall, contains pieces done by Marc Chagall.

-Hiking: Visitors to this part of France will find that they don’t really need a car or a bus to travel from their holiday homes in North Nice to the city’s sites of interest. A couple of minutes of walking are enough to get them to Old Nice from where they can walk down towards the sea. There is an intriguing cliff walk that leads from Coco Beach to Villefranche which visitors will find rejuvenating.

-Beaches: Right off the bat, Nice’s beaches are not the best for sunbathing. They are mostly rocky and pebbly, uncomfortable even for walks. However, the nearby towns of Villefranche sur Mer and the Hollywood-like Cannes fit the bill in terms of prime lounging and promenading grounds. Villefranche is less than half an hour’s drive away.

-Sightseeing: Nice boasts a number of excellent viewpoints from which one can admire the city and its surrounding landscapes and seascapes. Mont Boron is one of these; Colline du Chateau is another. The latter also offers immaculate views of the Bay of Angels or Baie des Anges as well as the harbour.

-Carnival: Holidaymakers keen on a Cote d’Azur excursion should time their visit to coincide with the Nice Carnival which is held every year between 18th of February and 8th of March. From their holiday accommodation in North Nice visitors can join in the daily and nightly parades that are the hallmark of this event.

Weather in North Nice

Visitors looking to spend their summer in North Nice holiday villas can book their accommodation any time between May and October as the temperatures at this time are mostly above 21°C. Summer temperatures are usually at their highest between July and August, averaging about 29°C. During these months there is hardly any rainfall. Though temperatures fall as winter arrives, they remain in the teens throughout the cold season.

Travel to North Nice

The Cote d’Azur airport, the main gateway to this part of France, is only three miles from Nice. Visitors from most major cities in Europe looking to escape to holiday homes in North Nice will find direct flights to this airport aboard mainstream commercial carriers or low-cost airlines. The airport terminal has a taxi rank as well as the desks of various car hire firms so arriving passengers can easily get transport to the city.

The terrace and garden are very nice and call you to relax. We especially appreciated that each room overlooks the terrace. The house is very clean and the decoration is full of charm. We felt like home. The gardener is very kind, he gave us some delicious tomatoes and basilic of the garden. We recommend this place.

The apartment was spacious, well equipped, clean & tidy. It was well located for supermarkets & restaurants. The tram stop is just outside with 10 trip booklet only 10 euro. Nice promenade is only 20 minutes by tram. There was a balcony which was great for chilling out. The complex was gated so had secure parking. I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment & hope to return.
