  • Overview

    Holidays in Nice have it all. An exceptional location, a stunning waterfront, a wonderful year-round climate and a beguiling mix of old world money and luxury combined with the ethnic diversity of a modern European city. You can spend hours strolling the labyrinthine lanes of the old town, meandering along the  palm lined sunset-perfect Promenade des Anglais, ambling down to the pretty Port Lympia or crossing the impressive new Place Massena, against a backdrop of the Baroque, Belle Epoque and Neoclassical facades of some of France’s finest architectural treasures. Beach-lovers, unsettled by the large flat stones and pebbles of the beaches, will appreciate the layer of sand that some hotels have added to their private beachfronts.

    Having scarcely changed since the early 18th century, Nice’s old town offers tiny lanes crammed with designer boutiques, antique shops, exquisite delis, bars and restaurants. The Parc du Chateau overlooking the Baie des Anges offers a spectacular vantage point. Not much is left of its ruined castle besides its crumbling walls, but the climb up is well worth the view. Follow the Colline du Chateau down to the pretty Venetian Port Lympia. A stroll along its quays is particularly charming.

    Holidays to Nice are a truly splendid way to experience traditional French culture. Markets of all kinds from flowers, fruit, vegetables and fish to antiques play a huge part in the day to day life of Nice. Many of these purchases translate, later in the day, into gastronomy, which even in a country renowned for its cuisine is difficult to better. Followers of 20th century art will delight in the galleries dedicated to Matisse and Chagall, and the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art with its open-air roof terraces offering one of the city’s best panoramas.
