Make a holiday apartment in West Nice your home away from home

West Nice holiday villas offer all the appeal of one of France’s top destinations, but accompanied by a little more privacy and luxury – and on HomeAway you’ll be able to track down the rental that’s right for you. At a West Nice apartment you’ll have easy access to Nice’s nightlife, dining, museums and beaches, but you’ll be able to enjoy it all from an elevated position, in an area with a more rural and Provençal character. Many holiday apartments in West Nice boast sublime views of the Mediterranean, with a choice of contemporary or traditional styles.

Things to do

-Beaches. Nice is recognised by its pebble beaches, and while these may seem a little rugged they can be perfectly comfortable if you come prepared and wear the right footwear. For added indulgence you could try one of the numerous private beaches on the city’s waterfront, many of which even feature carpets that lead all the way to the water. Closest to West Nice are Neptune Plage and Blue Beach.

-Museums. The Côte d’Azur has been a Mecca for the art world for almost 150 years, and in Nice there’s plenty of evidence of this tradition. There are first-rate galleries devoted to such luminaries as Matisse and Chagall. The Contemporary Art Museum is a must for all fans of modern art, with a large collection that includes pieces by Warhol and Lichtenstein.

-Food and drink. Two famous dishes that originated in Nice are salade niçoise, which has eggs, tuna, green beans, tomatoes and anchovies, and the mixed vegetable stew, ratatouille. During your stay here you should also be sure to try Socca, which is also unique to this region – it’s a pancake made from chickpea flour, flour and olive oil.

-History. Nice has a host of pretty churches, as well as a large and well-preserved old town. Home to the 16th Century Saint Reparate Cathedral, the old-town has the classically Mediterranean knot of narrow, winding streets and tall houses. The buildings here are elegantly painted in faded pastel colours. You could also pay a visit to Cathédral Saint Nicolas, a rare piece of Russian Orthodox architecture in Western Europe.

-Shopping. Nice has a reputation for luxury brands, and just in from the Promenade des Anglais are pedestrianised streets like Rue de France and Rue Massena. This is where you’ll find all the top luxury boutiques, next to cafes and trendy restaurants. Avenue Jean Médecin meanwhile has something for everyone, with high-street brands like H&M and Zara, as well as the Nice Etoile shopping centre.

Weather in West Nice

Get to a villa in West Nice in the summer and there will be long, unbroken spells of warm, sunny weather, with practically no rainfall. Daily highs in July and August range between anything from 25 to 33 degrees, with an average of only two rainy days for each of these months. The wetter weather comes later, in October and from then on temperatures fall steadily as the end of the year approaches. Winters are moderate, with maximum temperatures in the low-teens, while frosts are almost unheard of.

Travel to West Nice

Holiday accommodation in West Nice is well connected when it comes to transport. On the western side of the city, Nice Côte d’Azur Airport (NCE) is particularly convenient – it’s one of France’s top three airports, with plenty of links to cities in the UK via numerous airlines. From the airport you can simply follow the Promenade des Anglais around the bay towards Nice. The city has TGV links to Paris and other major French cities, while you’ll also find an extensive public transport network, composed of buses, trams and a new bike-sharing system.

The area is fairly quiet but it's easy to get into the town centre and is a convenient base to travel around the coast. We hired a car and although the flat comes with a car park space in the basement, we found it easier to park in the free car park across the street. Overall we had a lovely stay here and would recommend it.

From my initial enquiry he was prompt and very easy to deal with which made the booking process stress-free. The apartment is in a great location - 2 mins from the beach, 15 mins walk to the Old town, 15 mins walk to the train station and in the heart of an area which has lots of restaurants to choose from with a supermarket across the road and bakeries nearby. When we arrived about 9pm on a Friday night the restaurants were quite noisy and I was concerned the apartment would be noisy but as it was a couple of storeys above the street, it was remarkably quiet in the apartment. The main bedroom faces onto the street but it has double-glazing. I am very fussy about noise but I would stay in this apartment again but very light sleepers might prefer the two bedrooms at the back.

I had a car, but really preferred to be able to walk so after 3 days, I moved into this apartment in the city of Nice. It was perfect - there were a number of close parking options, the walk to restaurants and shopping was exactly what I wanted. Old Town was close. The beach was close. Driving into and out of the city from this location was easy. I am a single woman and for the first half of my stay I was on my own and I felt very safe at all times in this apartment. The apartment itself was wonderful. Very comfortable and quiet enough at night. The wrap around balcony was perfect at the end of the evening - opening the french doors and listening to the sounds of the city while unwinding. The facilities in the apartment were all perfect as well. Gregory was on time, responsive and helpful. Very good decision to change locations and I couldn't have chosen a better apartment than this one.
