Holiday like a champion on two wheels! cycling in Nice!

Cycling is enjoying a boom in popularity right now, and cyclo-tourism is big business.

Each July the eyes of the world are on France for the annual spectacle of the Tour de France. But with its favourable year-round climate, spectacular terrain and great cafes, cycling in Nice is always popular.

It’s easy to see why so many professional cyclists and their teams prefer cycling in Nice and the Cote d’Azur. Due to this popularity, tourists want to rent out apartments in Nice to ride the same routes as their heros. There’s a high chance that you will even see several professional cyclists whizz past you during your stay!

The Paris-Nice cycling stage race each spring has made local mountain climbs famous worldwide amongst cyclists. Col d’Eze, Col de Vence, Col de Turini, Col de Braus and the Col de la Madone are all big attractions and all cyclists would be proud to boast that they have attempted (and hopefully even conquered) these climbs!

A stay in Nice allows you to ride in the day and enjoy the city’s excellent restaurants in the evening. For those wanting something a little less arduous, nothing beats a steady ride along the world famous seafront of the Promenade des Anglais, or take in the picturesque views by enjoying a short ride for coffee in the sunshine beside Nice marina.

Demand is already high for vacation apartments in Nice, and it’s only likely to grow with the popularity of new events drawing more sporting tourists to the city. In June, the Nice Ironman event attracts thousands of participants from around the world, creating further demand for holiday apartments.
