An ideal destination in all seasons

No matter what your favourite season is, Nice Côte d’Azur is a year-round holiday destination! You love the mildness of spring, you can’t resist the pleasures of the beach in summer, you love the charm of autumn, you are a winter sports fan… Choose the period that suits you best and enjoy your stay, whatever the season.

In spring, all the senses are awakened

Stroll through the many forests, parks and gardens of the Nice Côte d’Azur and watch nature flourish in the mild Mediterranean climate. The Festival des Jardins de la Côte d’Azur takes place every two years in the four corners of the region and offers a free tour from town to town to discover spectacular floral works. Get out into the fresh air and discover exceptional landscapes by hiking or biking in the middle and high country. The beauty of the flora and fauna is such that you won’t believe your eyes.

Summer, the field of all possibilities

You’ll love discovering the ultimate seaside destination. With temperatures hovering around 30°C, take advantage of the beaches along the coast to bask in the sun, comfortably stretched out on your deckchair. And if you get too hot, dive into the sea: refreshing! For the more sporty, summer in Nice Côte d’Azur is also an ideal season to go beyond your limits. Water skiing, flyboarding, paddle, scuba diving… explore the beauty of Nice Côte d’Azur, with your toes in the water for an unforgettable holiday.

Flavours and colours of autumn

This period also marks the harvest season. How about immersing yourself in the heart of a winery and taking part in this unique experience? It is also chestnut season. You’ll love picking them and, above all, devouring them in jam, salad, purée or simply roasted to munch.

In winter, it’s time for snow sports and festivities

Take advantage of the exceptional location in the heart of the Mercantour Park to spend some time on the snow-covered mountainsides. Take to the slopes on skis, sledges, scooters or even sleighs, and watch the picture-postcard landscape unfold all around you. On the coast, sport gives way to festivities with the Christmas villages and events. Finally, in Nice, a majestic Ferris wheel takes place in the heart of the Place Masséna throughout the winter until Carnival time, a magical event that delights young and old alike.
