Nice Cote d’Azur airport has confirmed its status as the second busiest international airport in France after Paris. The airport revealed an increase in annual traffic of up to 8.5 per cent in 2011, followed by an additional growth of 7.4 per cent by the end of 2012.

As the Christmas lights are switched on along the French Riviera, the team at PlanetDacha.com have been discussing their favourite hot toddy drink! The traditional mulled wine came out top (hot red wine with traditional spices) with the Austrian or Bevarian ‘Jaeger Tee mit Schuss’ a close second (hunters tea with a shot of rum or similar!) Christmas markets are currently springing up across Europe as the festive season notches up a gear. This weekend the fabulous Baroque themed Christmas market in Nice opened its doors, whilst the market in Cannes opens up from 12 December on the Esplanade Ponteiro. So if you fancy some festive fun in the sun, check out our wonderful selection of apartments in Nice and Cannes to help complete your trip. Many are within walking distance to the markets and shops so you won’t have too far to wander back if you want to indulge in your favourite hot toddy!
November is renowned to be a quieter time of year on the Cote d’Azur but the PlanetDacha.com team are busy working away to bring you some fantastic new properties for the coming season! So if you can’t find the size of property or availability for your trip, do call us as we have a whole range of new apartments & villas in Nice, Cannes & the surrounding mountains which are being currently uploaded onto the site. Today we are in Cannes meeting new clients & partners who we are very much looking forward to working with. Unfortunately there has been little time to soak up the ocean views but we did enjoy a brief stop for the ‘Plat du Jour’, rump steak with an amazing mushroom sauce – well it would be rude not to recharge our batteries for the busy afternoon ahead!
The PlanetDacha.com team spent the past week travelling over 750 km throughout the Alps just North of Nice. We called the trip ‘Hunting for snow’ and yes we did find some, especially at the top of several passes that we drove over. The main aim of our trip was to visit some ski resorts which are a stones throw from Nice & Cannes and to find some fabulous traditional and characteristic properties for you to stay in! We were amazed how many resorts there are located only an hours drive away from Nice and how easy they are to reach. (For example buses take skiiers from Nice airport to Isola 2000 for only ONE Euro! The journey takes just over an hour so you could be back in Nice in time for happy hour the same day!) Some of the other resorts which left a lasting impression on us are Auron, St. Etienne, Valberg, Montgenevre, Serestriere and Limone. We stayed in a mixture of apartments, small hotels and a few fabulous chalets which oozed tradition and charm! Look out for them on PlanetDacha.com very soon….
