Local markets are held in Nice and in Villefranche. The most well known is in the ‘Cours Saleya’ in Nice, adjacent to the old town, and offers an array of olives, flowers, vegetables and fresh produce. There is also an interesting antiques market held here on a Monday.
Sporting activities in the area are abundant– there is sailing, diving, fishing, water sports, jogging and rollerblading along the Promenade des Anglais, and of course the beaches. You are also in very close proximity to the mountains and hills of the Alpes Maritimes region here, which makes walking and cycling very popular.
Beaches can be found just 5km away along the Promenade des Anglais and right along the front of Nice as far as the airport. From here you can enjoy the sunshine glittering on the azure blue waters of the Med and watch the many boats crossing the ‘Baie des Anges’. The beaches of Villefranche-sur-Mer are also just less than 6km away.
The ski stations of Valberg, Isola 2000 and Auron are approximately 1 hour’s drive away if you fancy a couple of days winter sports!
Getting around from here is easy. You have the bus and train services, which all start from Nice and work their way along the coast and further inland. There is a bus stop within walking distance of this villa. A car is preferred here but not essential.
Sightseeing is endless; you have the historical old town of Nice; the restaurants and yachts in the port of Nice; a stroll along the Promenade des Anglais; the views from the Chateau of Nice; the Museums of Art in Nice; the animals & plants at Parc Phoenix; the charming mediterranean towns of Villefranche-sur-Mer and Beaulieu-sur-Mer; the zoo and coastal walk around Cap-Ferrat; the perched village at Eze; the casinos and port of Monaco; and the Italian border town of Menton.

It was wonderful. We met they owners on arrival and they were a charming couple, showing us around their lovely home. The villa was beautiful - well-equipped with everything we needed. The lounge, dining and kitchen area was fun - unshut plan and on different levels with glass doors unshuting out all along onto terraces with amazing views. The outdoor living area was our favourite, with 2 different eating areas and the cosiest lounge area under cover. I can`t not mention the astounding views which we never tired of looking at - every hour the view changed - the sunsets were beautiful. Paul was amazing at being in contact with us, helping us find just what we were looking for, and offering us flexible options to fit in with our plans.We had the best holiday - I would say though, it would be worth putting up a couple more photos of the views on the villa details - maybe a night-time view or a sunset (we took lots!) - Mrs W. from Kent, August 17
Third time back here and loved it more than ever. The newly installed aircon in the master bedroom enhanced our comfort. The wonderful views from every room still never fail to blow us away. Stayed in many rental accommodations but this is up there with the best. Hope to be back for a fourth time...Mrs R. from Middlesex Aug 16
Can`t praise it enough!! The owners were delightful and had left a full fridge plus much more for us. The accommodation was 5* and was the best place we have ever rented! I could go on and on!! Please pass this on to them! (How satisfied were you with the property ?) Very Satisfied - Mrs R. from Middlesex, July 12.
