It can be a fantastic tonic for your health and happiness to book a New Year getaway, especially if you are one of many that are feeling a bit tired and jaded after Christmas. Therefore it is important to choose the best destination in which to spend your holiday time, and holiday lettings from Stay YNA can help.
January in the UK can be hard work with short, cold days and long chilly nights. It is when most of us realise just how long we have to wait to see a bit of warm sunshine again. So what could be better than to escape the grey cold weather and head to a beautiful spot such as Nice to recharge your batteries for a week or two!
Stay YNA have a superb range of beautiful holiday lettings in Nice for you to choose from. Nice is a popular destination for many UK holidaymakers, but if you want to avoid the crowds and really get to know the real Nice and its unique culture, then a January break is highly recommended.
Nice in January
Despite January being the coldest month in Nice, the average temperatures remain mild when compared to the UK and there is plenty of winter sunshine to be enjoyed.
January is also a great time of year to explore the city because it is less crowded and the beautiful beaches will be relitively empty too, making it a great time to visit Nice to relax and recharge your energy levels.
Temperatures average around 9°C, which is high enough to keep frosty weather at bay. However, by mid-day average temperatures sit around 13°C and above, providing you with a very pleasant and comfortable environment to walk around and explore.
While January is the coldest month in the UK, it certainly isn’t the wettest month of the year! Yes, it does rain in Nice during January, but the rainfall average is around 70mm and falls throughout the month in short, sharp downpours. Chances are if it does rain while you are there, you can dodge the worst of the showers by chilling in a cafe over a large cup of coffee until it passes.
Plenty of sunshine to enjoy
You can boost your Vitamin D levels and enjoy an average of 8 hours of sunshine per day during January. This will give you plenty of time to amble around the town and take in the sights and sounds this beautiful location has to offer.
Why not enjoy the sunshine to the maximum by booking one of Stay YNA’s holiday lettings with a balcony, such as the Gabrielle! The Gabrielle has a stunning view from the wraparound balcony too. Sit and gaze over terracotta rooftops, colourful streets and people watch as Niçoise life is laid out before you.
The location is central, with Nice on your doorstep just waiting to be explored. While it is surprisingly sunny in Nice during January, remember to pack a jumper as the evenings can get chilly.
Things to do in Nice in January
While most of the beaches in Nice are closed for water sports and other activities due to the lack of tourists, Blue Beach in Nice does remain open and offers several water-sport opportunities and there is plenty of beach and shores to stroll along to take in some winter sunshine and sea air.
Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art
Take a stroll around the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, showing an excellent timeline of Nice’s art history. With an eclectic mix of experimental art, New European Realism, and Pop Art, the museum also displays many works from famous local artists, such as Cesar, Klein, and Sosno.
The Cathedrale Saint Nicolas
The Cathedrale Saint Nicolas is a must-see local attraction in Nice. With a striking exterior of colourful domed turrets, it is a perfect example of traditional Russian Orthodox Church architecture. Inside it is just as stunning with a display of engravings that date from the early 20th Century. Please bear in mind that you will need to cover your feet, legs and shoulders when visiting.
Old Town Nice
Exploring Vieux Nice, or the Old Town, is an amazing experience. The old town plan is built on a serious of narrow, winding alleyways set between busy squares full of activity. The old town is packed full of fascinating independent local boutiques, cafes, confectionery shops selling traditional sweets and treats, and lots of small art galleries.
