We found this little jewel on the mountainside of Gattieres! Perfect for us as a base to explore the beautiful mountains to the north and the Cote d'Azur. Our hosts were lovely people who are now friends that we hope will visit us in the...More

Thank you so much for spending time to write us such a glowing report! It was so interesting having Californians stay with us, and be able to advise when necessary. Europe is so different from America. It can be difficult to adjust to different standards...More

About the neighbourhood
Gattieres, is a medieval perched village, which has hardly changed since the 12th century, and only 20 MINS FROM NICE! It has all that one could require whilst on holiday, from a renowned bakery which provides even for the House of Monaco to excellent restaurants with regional, provencal menus.
In July, a well-known professional opera performs in the open squares of the village. Gattieres, is centrally situated to visit the famous coastal resorts of Monaco, Nice, Cannes, or St. Tropez. Numerous festivals take place in the Nice area from famous jazz festivals, in the summer, to carnivals in the winter months. For more details see: www.whatsonwhen.com and look up the Nice area.

For the active, there is sailing, swimming, golf, tennis, fishing, climbing, walking, visiting the many museums a...
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Nice International Airport: 10.0 km
Railway: St Laurent du Var: 9.0 km
Ferry: Nice Marina: 12.0 km
Fly into Nice using a budget airline such as Easy Jet, hire a car over the internet then drive along the R202 heading north, direction Dignes. When you see a large roundabout with yellow sculptures on it, take the exit marked Gattieres. Follow the road signs to Gattieres.The villa is located on the Route du St. Laurent, 650 metres from the village. Journey time, approx. 20 mins. from the airport of Nice International.

In the summer time, Car Hire companies are extremely busy and there can be long delays. I would recommend you using a company called Sixt which is reasonable and has a base at Nice Airport or Gold. The queues are very much shorter than, say, Europcar, Budget, or Hertz. You might find renting a GPS will make easy travelling.
