Apartment holidays in Nice - Travel Guide

One of the most glamorous resorts of the Côte d’Azur, or French Riviera, Nice has been wooing well-heeled tourists for over a century. Visitors come to experience the incredible vista from the Colline du Chateau, wander the Promenade des Anglais or the picturesque streets of Vieux Nice (old town), and see the stained glass windows of the Musee Chagall or the paintings, drawings and sculptures of Musee Matisse. Of course, Nice’s beaches remain a popular draw card, and a day spent enjoying the views from those legendary blue chairs or sun loungers is a tourist must do – and a great escape from the pebbles beneath. After a day of sightseeing or sun, you will have earned a plate of Nicoise salad, or perhaps a socca, a thin pancake made of chickpea flour. If staying in a Nice apartment or villa, you can also take advantage of local markets, including the famous Cours Selaya. A daily flower and produce market, here you can buy everything from fragrant blooms to olives, cheese, bread and fresh fish. What better way to experience the true Nice, like a local.

When to go to Nice

Although famed as a summer destination, Nice first became a tourism mecca when visitors began flocking to its mild winter climate. Now, Nice is a great year round destination, with temperatures ranging from around 15°C in winter to a balmy 27°C in July and August. If visiting at this time, be prepared for crowds of tourists and lengthy delays on the roads.

Getting to and around Nice

Most tourists arrive in Nice by car, TGV train from Paris, or flights into Aéroport International Nice-Côte d’Azur, around 6km from the city centre. Buses are also available from nearby Cannes, Grasse and Monaco, among other French towns. Once in Nice, public transport options include buses and trams.
