Family Activities at Christmas on the French Riviera

Cycle: Head out on two wheels on these flat coastal cycling trails in Cagnes sur Mer and Nice’s Promenade des Anglais.
Walking: Enjoy nature on the hiking trails at Cap d’Antibes, Villeneuve Loubet towards Cagnes sur Mer, and Parc du Paradou.
Skiing and snowboarding: Head to the mountains where you’ll find over 30 ski resorts just a few hours driving from the coast, catering for everyone from novices to expert.
Holiday markets: From food to animations, there is plenty to keep everyone entertained at the Christmas markets.
