November in Nice

November is the low season for holiday rentals in Nice. However, it is a good time to visit as the crowds are gone and you can still enjoy all the amenities that Nice has to offer as, unlike many holiday destinations, Nice stays open all year round. The heat is over, and although the nights are getting colder, the day time temperatures are still in the low 20s - which is great for walking around, having an alfreso lunch and exploring the area. Today has been 22oC and the forecast is the same for the next couple of days.

Now that the summer heat haze has disappeared, the days are brilliant and clear, giving good uninterrupted views of the cote d'zure or the hills that surround Nice.

I advise a trip up to the top of Mont Born where the panorama is breath taking. You will be able to see out to Cap d'Antibes on one side and over Cap Ferat towards Monaco on the other.

Access is easy, take the number 14 bus from the city centre to the terminus on Mont Boron. The ride gives you some breath taking views of the surrounding mountains that are already snow topped. There is an easy walk at the top with good view points all around. Oh! and don't forget your camera.
