Fall in love with Nice this autumn….

From beautiful vacation rentals to stunning apartments, the holiday rentals market is booming in Nice, and it’s not difficult to see why. Located in the French Riviera, right on the French coast of the Mediterranean Sea, and nestled at the foot of the Alps, there are more than a few reasons why people fall in love with Nice la Belle.

From as far back as the 18th century, the English have been packing up their bags and making their holiday plans in Nice, due to the stunning views, warm weather and beautiful beaches that delighted a country far more used to wet, windy weather throughout autumn. Since then, Nice has become a hotspot for visitors across every month, with visitors enjoying the laid-back metropolitan vibe that the city provides with plentiful shopping, great food and mild weather.

Here are just some of the reasons you’ll fall in love with Nice this autumn:

Visit the Riviera

With many picturesque coastal towns, beautiful blue seas and countless yachts dotted along the waves, you don’t get much more glamorous than the French Riviera – which is probably why all the celebrities choose to sun themselves there too. Boat tours, driving tours and more allow you to further explore the coast, from Cannes to Monte Carlo. Mediterranian architecture in earthy tones is everywhere, creating the feeling of a river lost in time that is anything but autumnal.

Experience the taste

Nice takes the metropolitan feel even further with a huge variety of eateries, delis and restaurants to choose from. If you’re looking for gelato or ice cream, you’ll certainly be spoiled for choice, with some establishments having been open for more than 50 years. Whereas it’s time for hot chocolate and warm jumpers in the UK, in Nice you can sample gourmet French cuisine, as well as get a taste of the Mediterranean with Italian-style cooking and bakeries if that’s more your kind of scene.

Take in the history

Not only is Nice beautiful, it’s got a long and storied history that’s fascinating to learn about. Discover the Victorian Promenade des Anglais, one of the most famous and lengthy beaches on the Riviera; or visit La Colline du château, the site of an ancient fortress that’s now the ideal place for a picnic with beautiful greenery. Nice also features multiple stunning art galleries and museums to explore, and thanks to the lack of rainy, miserable weather you can enjoy a picnic at many historical locations.
