The Alpes-Maritimes has something for all

It was once the muse to Matisse and has long been the stomping ground of jet-setters. Why? It's got everything, from snow-capped Alpine mountains to shimmering beaches to buzzing cityscapes. The region of Alpes-Maritimes can be found tucked into the far south-west corner of France. Nice, Cannes and Antibes bring ancient history to bear on happening cocktail bars, while reserves like the Prealpes d'Azur and the Mercantour National Park hide away from the sun-splashed coast with their carved summits, hiking trails and ski fields. No matter whether it's R&R Cote d'Azur-style or no holds barred highland adventure you're after, Alpes-Maritimes vacation rentals can oblige.

Alpes-Maritimes, where adventure meets style

There are really 2 sides to the Alpes-Maritimes region. There's the wild and untouched side, rising with the carved summits of the Prealps. That's where you can hike and bike and strap on the skis to whiz down mountainsides that creep towards the Italian border. Then there's the Cote d'Azur – the French Riviera. That's where you'll top up the tan and splash in sapphire blue waters. It's where you'll yacht your way past pine-scented islands and hop between chi-chi restaurants, tasting the finest French cuisine there is.

Alpes-Maritimes is a flurry of art and culture

In a region both trodden by Roman legions and an inspiration to Henri Matisse, it's hardly a surprise that Alpes-Maritimes vacation rentals are surrounded by art and culture. In Nice, you can delve into the Musee des Beaux-Arts to spy out Rodin's sculptures and Picasso's ceramics. Talking of Picasso, Antibes comes with the acclaimed Musee Picasso. There are mind-boggling Cubist and Surrealist canvasses within, while the stone-built building itself was once the home of the great master. Then, in Cimiez, the Musee Archeologique encircles the ruins of Roman bathhouses and holds mysterious ancient sarcophagi.

Alpes-Maritimes – a climate that's envied by all

The whole south coast of France has a climate that's the envy of destinations right across the globe. There are long summers, starting towards the end of May and lasting until September. They bring yachties and beachgoers to the pebble coves of the Cote d'Azur – it's a great time to seek out Alpes-Maritimes vacation rentals by the sea. Spring, in April and May, is perfect for hikers hitting the mountain ranges, or festival regulars making for the jet-setter bars of Cannes. In winter, the pistes open for skiers. The season, this far south, typically runs from late December to March.

Alpes-Maritimes is wave-washed mountains

The Alpes-Maritimes is made up of 2 of France's most iconic natural features – coast and peak. The summits soar to over 3,100 meters with the carved limestone tops of the Cime du Gelas in the Mercantour National Park. That great reserve is also home to crashing waterfalls and flowering alpine meadows, dense fir forests and shimmering mountain lakes. Down south, the mountains crash into the sea. They frame cities like Nice and Cannes, eventually petering into pebble beaches and little islands peppered with pine and eucalyptus trees.
