Nice has long been a firm favourite for holidays and getaways, due to its stunning scenery, culture, and architecture.  With so many things to explore, it can be difficult to fit everything in; that’s why we’ve compiled this list, so you can be sure to make the most out of this spectacular city.

Explore the culture

There are a plethora of museums to discover in Nice, varying from sport to contemporary art. There is a museum to suit all interests, but the Musée Matisse and Musée Marc Chagall are firm favourites that explore the works of some of France’s greatest artists.

The architecture of Nice is simply stunning.   You will never tire of seeing the city’s colourful buildings entwined with grand architecture.  You should make time to visit the Basilica Notre Dame, which is the oldest of Nice’s modern religious buildings and is perhaps even grander than its Parisian counterpart.  The Opéra de Nice is home to Nice’s philharmonic orchestra and national ballet. All of which are well worth a Visit during your stay.  If you’re visiting Nice in February, ensure that you take in the sights and sounds of Nice Carnival.

Eat, drink and relax

No visit to the French Riviera is complete without experiencing the vast array of wines and fresh produce it has to offer. Stop off at one of the many brasseries on the ever-popular Promenade de Anglais for a stunning Mediterranean view, and make sure to try a Socca – a chickpea flatbread that is one of the region’s specialities.

For something a little different, stroll down to Place Rossetti in the heart of the old town. Place Rossetti is right in front of the baroque Cathédral Sainte-Réparate and is filled with energy, music, and atmosphere. There are plenty of places to eat and drink nearby too.

Due to its location on the French Riviera, no visit to Nice would be complete without a day soaking up the sun on one of the region’s beaches. There are numerous private and public beaches in and around Nice – but do be aware of the pebbles!

Visit Nice – 4 Great Reasons 

To visit Nice is to discover the beauty that is Nice in France, one of the best destinations in Europe for a city break or a long indulgent couple of weeks away. Here are our top four reasons why a holiday to Nice should be the next destination on your list!

1. Sunshine all-year-round

The city of Nice enjoys the longest hours of sunshine in the region of the French Riviera. It enjoys approximately 2668 hours of the sunshine per year which means there’s never a bad time to visit Nice. It all depends on what you want to do. If you fancy a dip in the sea, then the best month to visit is August when the average sea temperature is around 24°C.

2. It’s the perfect exploration base

If you fancy wandering beyond Nice, you’re in luck. The city of Monaco is only a low-cost bus ride away (around €1.50). It gives you the opportunity to bask in the lavish luxury of the harbour and its surroundings. You can also hop on a bus and discover many authentic ports and perched villages, which will enable you to see a unique side to Nice.

3. Nice oozes romance

Whilst Paris and Rome might be the first destinations that pop into your head when you think of romantic cities, Nice is underrated. Take the miniature train from the Promenade des Anglais up to the Château Gardens high above Nice. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy romantic company whilst embracing the beauty of Nice. You could even check out the famous flower market in Cours Saleya which is located in the heart of Old Nice. Stroll hand-in-hand amongst the smells and bright colours of the beautiful flowers – why not pick a bunch for your loved one?

4. Wine region

If you are a wine consumer, you will love what Nice has to offer. As well as its fabulous wines on offer in many restaurants, you have the opportunity to indulge in a wine tasting tour. Try an organic wine tour by visiting two vineyards on Bellet Hill. Taste organic rosé, white and red wines!

Off-season bookings

It’s only natural for your holiday rental bookings to drop a little during the off-season. However, there are a few things that you can do to help bring in more visitors to your holiday rental in Nice, France when the main summer rush is over.

Sell the off-season benefits of holidaying in Nice

When marketing your holiday rental in Nice, make sure that you highlight the many benefits of an off-season stay. Think about what your rental has to offer guests for a winter stay, for example a log fire, a deep whirlpool bath, no light pollution so that guests can enjoy a great view of the winter night sky.

The spring months can also be a great time to explore Nice and the surrounding areas before the crowds arrive, and an Easter break could also be a good selling angle to try.

One of the main benefits of holidaying out of season is that prices tend to be lower. Remember to point out to potential guests that flights, car hire and visitor attraction entrance fees are all generally lower than they are during peak season. This could mean that visitors might be able to stay for an extra day or two.

Update your website images

To draw in out of season guests, it’s a good idea to include seasonal images of your accommodation and of the surrounding area. A cosy picture of a crackling log fire and pretty autumn colours in your gardens will help your guests to imagine being there during low season, rather than an image of a sun lounger and the local beach.

Local seasonal events

If there are any notable seasonal events taking place near to your holiday rental, such as autumn or Christmas markets or star gazing events, be sure to market these on your property’s details page. Try offering free tickets for an event as an incentive for booking to come and stay with you out of season.

It can also be worth approaching local restaurants to see if they would be prepared to offer discounted meals for your guests. Many restaurateurs will be open to this idea as their own footfall will be reduced out of season and any extra customers will be welcome.
