We are flying to Nice too but staying close by. First time we've ever been to that part of France so any tips would be welcome.
I'm told Grasse and St Maxime are both worth a visit, but any TRL advice would be great. Ankle-biters are in tow so that has to be a factor...
Grasse is ok to look around the old town and a visit to the perfume factory is interesting. Stayed in Plascassier last year. Some breathtaking and scary roads going north from there.
