Nice and the surrounding French Riviera towns are a great place to take a family vacation. Not only are there miles of coastline and ancient history to explore, but the region is also very child-friendly when it comes to lodging. Whether you're on a tight budget and looking for an affordable guesthouse or splurging on a luxury resort, you'll find these properties not only welcome families, they embrace them. At the five-star Four Seasons Grand Hotel Cap-Feret and the Hotel du Cap Eden-Roc, both outside Antibes, for instance, you'll find summer kids clubs that offers age appropriate and fun activities that give parents some quality alone time. And even if a hotel doesn't have a child-specific camp experience, like the family-friendly boutique guesthouse, Hotel Suisse, many properties can arrange in room babysitting with a reputable agency.
Here we offer some of our favorite family-friendly properties both in Nice, which is the only major city in the region, but also along the Cote d'Azur with options in Antibes and Monaco as well – this entire region is easily accessible by train with towns spread just 10 or 15 minutes apart from each other. This easy access to a number of locations is another reason travel in the South of France with families is so popular – it's easy to keep the little ones entertained, especially if they love train travel.
