Cheap Nice flights

Britons planning to book cheap flights to Nice may find the nearby village of Eze is where the real appeal of the Cote d'Azur lies, according to one travel writer.

Charles Starmer-Smith, writing for the Telegraph, states that the village boasts "fabulous" views over St Jean-Cap Ferrat from its position 1,400 feet above sea level.

Nestled within Eze is a ruined 12th Century castle and its closely packed homes create the feeling of the village having labyrinth-like streets, he continues.

"Admiring the view over the vast, bougainvillea-wrapped villas that lead down the hillside to the Mediterranean, you will soon realise why each summer brings an invasion of [tourists]," Mr Starmer-Smith enthuses.

He adds that on the Eze-Sur-Mer, holidaymakers can find the "usual Mediterranean mix" of beaches, water sports and al fresco dining, which could prove to be the perfect spot for Britons to unwind.

People who are set to book cheap flights to Nice will be following in the famous footsteps of Queen Victoria, King Edward VII, Pablo Picasso and Elton John, who have also enjoyed holidays to the Cote d'Azur in the past.
