Private jet charter to Nice
Nice is one of the largest cities in France and the second largest on the Mediterranean coast. It’s sunny year round, and only a short hop from the principality of Monaco, ideal for a quick visit, especially if your stay coincides with the Formula One race. Why not get a fast quote from Air Charter Service to charter a private jet to Nice and relax in the sunshine, dine out on the terrace and shop until you drop.
Nice has long been thought of as a luxury destination, with the myriad of shops, restaurants, bars and high-end hotels offering everything you could wish for. The beach is pebbled, so you’ll want to hire a lounger should you wish to enjoy a prolonged period of sunbathing. The water is ideal for a swim due to the steep drop off, though it’s best only confident swimmers take to the water.
Nice has a great range of hotels available, so no matter what your budget, you’ll be sure to find something to suit. That said, their luxury offerings are particularly impressive, with the Hotel Negresco featuring at the top of our list. It’s got wonderful views out over the water, Michelin starred dining and plenty of opulent style, highlighted by the myriad of antique furniture and art. Another favourite of ours is the Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Méditerranée hotel; it’s a little more contemporary than the Negresco and is ideally located close to the old town. If you’re looking to offset your carbon footprint, then head to the Hi-Hotel Exo Spa and Beach hotel, offering a luxurious but quirky alternative in Nice.
There’s also plenty when it comes to dining out, with the most celebrated restaurant, Restaurant Le Chantecler, found at the Hotel Negresco. It’s been awarded two Michelin stars, and serves up an array of classic French cuisine, each paired with a vintage wine and overseen by local chef Jean-Denis Rieubland. Oliviera is a more laidback take on Mediterranean cuisine, but the setting is beautiful and there’s a focus on different local varieties of olive oil, many of which you can buy to take home. For something more contemporary try Keisuke Masushima, and be prepared for a fusion of French and Japanese flavours, outstanding wine and an always evolving menu.
Nice is well known for its shopping, with the Avenue Jean Médecin seen as the main thoroughfare for those looking to give their credit cards a work out. There’s the busy Rue de France, but if you’re looking for high-end quality, designer goods you’ll want to head along Rue Paradis, off the Rue de France. Do bear in mind that a lot of shops and shopping centres won’t be open on a Sunday.
