The February half term holidays co-incide with one of the largest carnivals in the world - the Nice Carnival on the French Riviera from 14th February to 4th March, (www.nicecarnaval.com). Accommodation is naturally at a premium but the charming, private Villa of La Marmotte offers an oasis of calm and tranquillity, just 5 miles from all the action.
Exuberant colourful parades take place day and night, comprising the ‘flower battles’ from beautifully decorated floats on the Promenade des Anglais, processions to the Place Masséna and entertainment provided by over 1,000 musicians and dancers from across the world.
