Destination guide

A cute little coastline that's next door to Nice

The thoroughly cute town of Cagnes-sur-Mer is about 5 miles from Nice. It's yet another lovely place on the Cote d'Azur where loads of famous artists and writers found inspiration and respite, including Pierre-Auguste Renoir himself. You can find the same inspiration with Cagnes-sur-Mer vacation rentals, whether on the rocky coastline, or rolling hills and forests inland. And here are 2 little facts about this place: you're right next to Cote d'Azur airport, and the spot where the mighty Var River empties into the Mediterranean Sea.

Things to do

Ante up at the coastal casinos, mes amies!

Mon amie, there are beacoup d'attractions you can find around Cagnes-sur-Mer vacation rentals. For starters, a visit to the Cote d'Azur isn't complete without taking a spin at 1 of the casinos. There's Terrazur Casino right in Cagnes-sur-Mer, or take a 20-mile trip up the coast to glamorous Monte Carlo. Or if horse racing is more your speed, try Hippodrome de la Cote d'Azur, which is right on the sea. The Renoir Musuem is housed in his beautiful former estate, and check out the sea views from Haut-de-Cagnes, a medieval hilltop village centered around the regal fortress Chateau Grimaldi.

Activities

Life's 1 long (pebbly) beach if you know where to go

There's 1 long beach here, a 2-mile strip of coast that is not sand, but pebbles. If you feel like dropping a few euros, stop by the Polygone Riviera, an ultra-chic outdoor mall with casinos, restaurants, and more. You won't be feeling "tents" after you spend some time at one of the area's numerous campgrounds, which have parks with picnic areas, trails, pools, and loads of outdoor activities. Spend a day in nearby Nice, where you can admire the architecture on the Promenade Anglais, and catch a concert or football match at Allianz Riviera–Nice Stadium.

Weather

I summer, you summer, we all summer

Is there anything as blissful as summering by the warm sea? And don't you just love using "summer" as a verb? In July and August, temps are in the 80s and the water's awesomely warm at 75 degrees. If you want to avoid the summer crowds, winter weather's pretty mellow, averaging in the mid-40s from December through February. If you're here in October and November, you'll probably see some precipitation. But your best bet for Cagnes-sur-Mer vacation rentals is early spring or fall. It's still warm and dry, but you'll avoid the crowds and the high prices.

Natural features

Wild horses couldn't drag you away from the Cote d'Azur

As you may have guessed from its name, Cagnes-sur-Mer is right by the calm, azure waters of the Mediterranean Sea, about 30 miles shy of the Italian border. You can expect narrow beaches with more pebbles than sand. The hilly inland is a Provencal paradise, with terra-cotta buildings, palm trees, and evergreen plants. This is a mega-hotspot for holiday travel, so those smart French folks have put much effort into creating spaces that protect wildlife from crowds. Throughout the region's parks, you'll find bison, wolves, eagles, and Przewalkski's Horses—wild horses that nearly became extinct in the 1800s.
