Attractions near Nice holiday lettings

Whatever the Promenade des Anglais may imply, this isn't just a place for off-duty fashionistas. It's also a town steeped in history and heritage. Grabbing yourself Nice holiday rentals in the area of Cimiez is great for remembering that.

Activities

Fun things to do near Nice holiday homes

Nice is a place to really get to grips with what life's like on the Cote d'Azur. Lose yourself in the higgledy-piggledy lanes of Vieux Nice to find coffee-scented bistros lining alleyways and bougainvillea spilling from balconies. Hit the Promenade des Anglais to sense the glamorous side of things, walking in the company of movie stars, maybe. Then there are the glorious vistas that unfold on the French Riviera. Excursions from your Nice holiday rentals can reveal panoramic views from dramatic clifftops at Eze or jutting into the Med at Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.

Weather

Local weather for your stay in Nice villa rentals

Nice follows a typically Mediterranean climate. Winters run from December to March, ushering in temperatures that range from 15 right down to 0 – it will be snowing in the ski resorts just over the Alps. For the warmer days that will let you hit the pretty beaches of the Cote d'Azur, it's best to wait for spring, in May. Average mercury levels hit the 20s, then, while summer, in June, July and August, sees peaks of 30 or more – not to mention the biggest visitor numbers of all.

Natural features

Nice introduces the Alps to the sea

The capital of the Alpes-Maritimes region marks the point where the limestone peaks of the French Alps roll into the Mediterranean Sea. The result is a crescendo of high cliffs and wide bays, running from Villefranche-sur-Mer and up into the pine-studded ridges of the Ligurian Hills. A long beach of pebbles runs along the front of the city, topped by the palm trees of the Promenade des Anglais. It's just a taster of the gorgeous coastal treats of the area, which can be witnessed in the rock-ribbed inlets of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat or between the mountains of Cap Roux.
