Nice holidays, Cote d'Azur Holiday rentals, villas & holiday homes to rent in Nice
Nice is an all-year round destination and is just 11km southwest of Monte Carlo on the French Riviera. It is the capital of the Alpes-Maritimes and is full of fun for all the family, with superb beaches, restaurants and spectacular countryside. Known as one of the sunniest parts of France with an average of 320 days sunshine per year and summer temperatures in the high twenties, Nice is a magnet for tourists. With this type of climate, the area is full of vineyards and orchards, which make for some good wine tasting!
The resort has an abundance of cafes, restaurants and bars especially around the famous Promenade des Anglais and in the Old Town. During the peak summer months there are several beach clubs where you can chill out in style. There is also a market selling local produce which is great for food shopping if you are staying in self-catering holiday rentals.
