It's Carnival Time in the South of France

Quiet in the Winter months? Not here in the South of France, it's February which can only mean one thing - Nice Carnival is in town. 

Think Mardi Gras, think New Orleans, think one of the biggest and most colourful parties that you've ever been to and you'll have come close to the spectacle that is Nice Carnival. 

This year the theme is 'King of Music' and the colour parades of floats take place night and day between 15th February and the 1st March with over 1,000 dancers and performers. 

February is a great time to travel to the South of France, the skies are blue and it's still warm enough to each lunch outside. And of course there are great rates to be found for South of France villa rentals.
