by air

As the 2nd-busiest airport in France, Nice airport is well served by a number of flag carriers, as well as some of the low-cost airlines. We will meet you at the airport and transfer you to the apartment in Beaulieu – a 30 minute drive through Nice and along the coast.

From the UK, direct flight availability is as follows:

  • Heathrow: BA
  • London City: BA
  • Gatwick: BA, Easyjet, Monarch, Norwegian

  • Stansted: Easyjet
  • Southampton: Flybe
  • Bristol: Easyjet
  • Birmingham: Monarch
  • Liverpool: Easyjet

  • Leeds / Bradford: Jet2

Some airlines fly year-round, others fly only during the summer season e.g. April to September.

The location in Beaulieu is along the coast from Nice, but easy to get to from the airport…Beaulieu seems better than Nice as a location to ride from as there are options to ride out without having to go through the busy city, and there are plenty of options for eating out if needed.Matthew G

by rail

Nice is served by the TGV network in France. For groups arriving by train, we can collect from the station (Nice Ville), but it’s often quicker and easier for you to transfer to the local stopping service and alight at Beaulieu-sur-mer (10 minutes), from where it’s a short walk to the apartment.

by road

Beaulieu is easily reached by road. Most traffic will arrive on the A8 Autoroute; coming from Avignon / Marseille direction, the motorway skirts around to the north of Nice; you come off at junction 56, from where it is a 10-15 minute drive, down to the sea and along the coast road into Beaulieu-sur-mer. Parking can be provided.



Beaulieu makes a great base for the trip, with superb riding options in both directions along the coast and up into the Alpes Maritimes – from Nice through Monaco and into Italy.

In the morning you can be having a coffee on the balcony and looking out over the Med, and by lunchtime you can be up at 1600m in wild mountains – then back again for dinner in one of the many excellent restaurants in the town.James A
