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.

Stay here - it's the perfect spot for Nice

5 of 5
This is a perfect holiday apartment in the best place on the Promenade des Anglais just a short walk to the old town and the stylish Place Massena. Apparently Henri Matisse lived in the building for a time. It gets the best of the sun from morning until night. There's one of the best boulangeries in Nice just round the corner - open 7 days. Don't worry about noise - the double glazing is very effective. The no 98 airport bus drops you just round the corner so easy to get to. Nice is a perfect holiday spot with plenty to see, do and eat and you can travel virtually anywhere around town and along the Côte d'Azur for €1.50 by bus. Marie, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful.

Lovely apartment, peaceful area

5 of 5
The flat is very well kept. Clean with good facilities such as wifi. 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.
