What to do with kids in Nice

img_2353

As the winter weather takes hold, cheer yourself up with thoughts of next summer. If you are looking for a destination for a family holiday that has something for everyone, then look no further than Nice…

With over 2 miles of pebbly beach you are never short of outside space for kids in Nice. Some of the private paying beach spaces have specific areas for families including play areas, games and pools.  But once you tire of the pebbles or need to find some shade during the summer there are other options both inside and out.

La Reserve

Starting with the seafront, La Promenade des Anglais is perfect for strolling or rolling along.  Bikes, rollerblades, skateboards and even push scooters can be hired from Rollerstation situated on Quai des Etats-Unis. On the newly redeveloped central site of the Paillon riverbed, La Promenade de Paillon is the central park and a hotbed of free entertainment.

In addition to the giant mirror of water with its 125 jets which provide fountain and mist shows to enthrall both young and old, there is an enormous play area home to a selection of wooden sea creatures from 3 metre turtles to a 30 metre whale and even a pirate ship. Each structure has been created for a different age group and there is something for everyone under 12; rings, ropes, nets, bars, slides, swings and more! Parks and play areas are easy to find all over Nice, for one with a magnificent view try Castle Hill, which also has a café to revive the parents. Parc Castel des Deux Rois has a little goat farm and like many has ping pong tables so take along your bats and balls.

To get around the city why not take a ride on the Little Train www.trainstouristiquesdenice.com. A 50 minute journey with commentary specially for kids will give tired legs a break and provide a scenic overview of the city. It leaves from the seafront opposite Albert 1er Garden. There are boat trips available from the Port, excellent snorkelling places along by Coco beach and Nice Diving school takes children from 8 years old.

 For when being outdoors is not an option, Nice has 8 municipal swimming pools, an ice rink (Patinoire Jean Bouin), a bowling alley (Nice Bowling) and numerous museums and galleries many of which lay on workshops and activities aimed at children. Go to www.nice.fr for more details. By the airport you will also find Parc Phoenix a partly covered garden with large greenhouses containing plants and animals, from black swans to pelicans and porcupines to creepy crawlies. It is free for the under 12’s and has a play area and trampoline.

Further afield towards Antibes don’t miss Marineland, also home to Kids’ Island, Aquasplash and Adventure golf. With all this to do the only problem is fitting it all in!

Nice Christmas Market 2016: 3rd December- 1st January

Save on your Christmas break in Nice when you book before 25th November!

The Christmas festivities in Nice kick off at the beginning of December with the Village de Noël  in Place Masséna. The North Pole comes to the French Riviera with a market of wooden chalets selling sweets, stocking fillers, local crafts and of course hot wine! A forest of snowy pine trees and an ice rink add to the wintry effect and the Ferris wheel gives great views over the snow-capped Alps

Place Garibaldi gets the Christmas treatement too, with Santa in his grotto and lots of entertainment options from music and theatre to story telling for the children. In the old town you can find a petting zoo with hands-on learning for little ones.

There are events and attractions all over the Riviera and one of the best to visit is in the medieval village of Lucéram, 30 minutes drive from Nice. Hundreds of nativity scenes are hidden around the village, from life size to miniature, how many can you find?

Christmas time in Nice is generally beautiful and sunny but if you have a yearning for the white stuff the ski resorts are only a couple of hours away with day passes for the lifts and equipment hire available.

Save on your Christmas break in Nice when you book before 25th November!

 

 

 

 

Sun, sea, sand and socca

Place Rossetti

Nice is quite frankly, very nice indeed! One of the most popular coastal cities in the Mediterranean, it has been drawing in tourists for decades. Back in the day, Britain’s Queen Victoria, not a lady known for being easily pleased, adored the place and returned year after year.

Coco Beach

A city full of colour, bursting with flavours and sensations, rich in history and culture. Wonderfully welcoming people, delicious food and the weather is pretty good too

Old Town
Old Town

First time visitors are always surprised to find that the city is pretty compact, it’s easy to get around but boasts very distinct areas, each with their own charm. Wide open squares surrounded by cafes and restaurants are the ideal spot from which to indulge in some serious people watching.

Crowded cobbled alleys snaking around the old town, with hidden treasures at every corner. Don’t miss the traditional markets where you can find fresh local produce and quirky crafts and antiques

Outside the maze-like confines of the Old Town, Rue Bonaparte is the new go-to place in the evening. There are some fabulous restaurants and bars and the area is the home of the city’s lively gay scene.

The port area also boasts some great eateries and is a good base for visitors who like a bit of peace and quiet without being too far from the action.

If youwant to live like the Niçois then stay in Carré d’Or, choose an apartment in one of the elegant Belle Epoque buildings in the wide boulevards close to the Opéra and enjoy watching the world go by apéro in hand from your wrought iron balcony, oh la la!

And because a home is designed for living, they are equipped with all the essentials for daily life. Now essentials, is a pretty broad term. Of course you are always going to find a full kitchen, washing machine, TV and Wifi as given, but some owners couldn’t live without their library of books or DVDs, open fireplace or even a hot tub.

Part of the charm of staying in someone’s home is that you get a real feel for their personality and taste; living in their space, walking in their shoes. But of course you don’t want to be surrounded by their clutter too so whilst you’ll find lots of carefully chosen items you won’t encounter cupboards bursting with someone else’s clothes or food

Of course, style is subjective; one person’s ideal might be a historic house in the tranquil countryside, while another has a penchant for slick minimalist city pads at the heart of the action.

There is something about food that brings us together, whether it’s the simple act of sitting around a table with friends and family or the soothing process of preparing a meal together.

Staying in a new place provides the perfect opportunity to discover new flavours and enjoy fresh culinary experiences.

Salone House

Eating out is great for that first taste of  a new cuisine but if you really want to explore the local tastes, head down to the market, stock up on seasonal goodies, go home and hit the kitchen.

Polytimo

Expand your culinary horizons and combine the adventure of a new home town with all the comforts of home.  Dine al-fresco on fresh local produce or snuggle around the fire place with a nourishing hot pot.
