Private Jet to Nice, France

Nice rests along the pebbly shores of the Côte d’Azur, and its proximity to Cannes has made it one of France’s most popular private flight destinations; its history of opulence and luxury has created one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Mediterranean.

The French Riviera, The Cote d’Azur: these names have arisen throughout history to signify luxury, decadence, and relaxation. They conjure up images of happy people sipping wine in seaside cafes on lazy afternoons. Shimmering ocean waters peppered by sailboats call out to the senses, and they suggest that each moment be framed and hung up neatly on the walls of your mind.

That’s what makes the French Riviera one of the most popular destinations in the world for private charter flights. Life in Nice seems to pass by a bit slower than in other parts of the world; brunch gradually bleeds into dinner time, and a short walk on the beach turns into a meandering adventure. It’s that type of lifestyle that vacationers need, and it’s what you’ll enjoy most after your private jet arrives.


Nice’s international shops offer a happy medium between the extremes of Milan and Paris. Many of the main streets in the area can come off as tacky and over-developed, but just behind the curtain of tourism is a wide swath of luxury boutique shops, peddling everything from home apparel and antiques to dresses and suits. Some of the best shopping in the city can be found off of Jean Medecin Avenue. This walkable city center street is full of luxury retailers and boutique designers that are sure to entice visitors of any interest. And, of course, there’s plenty of fun to be had at the iconic Promenade des Anglais. While you’re out on the town, it makes sense to spend some time perusing the different museums and art galleries that make the area a cultural hub of France. If you’re interested in seeing pieces by today’s most influential artists, then look no further than the MAMAC, one of France’s premier venues of contemporary art.


France is famous for food, and it’s famous for wine and overall culinary passion. Everyone knows that part of the allure of the French Riviera comes from this iconic, yet slightly intimidating, passion; it’s as if we imagine the chef will take offense if we don’t enjoy the meal properly, so we take our time. It’s in this way that culinary excellence affects the city’s general lifestyle. Smaller portions with minimalist presentation urge visitors to just slow down and enjoy it, to enjoy each moment. It’s easy to get in the zone when dining out in in France. For some reason, Michelin Starred restaurants beg a bit of extra care be taken when eating their food; there’s a bit of gravity between the moment the food leaves the plate and passes through your lips. If you’re still looking for the absolute best restaurant to put on your itinerary, then consider planning for a night at L’Univers where signature chef Christian Plumail will take the best care of you. A close contender for best gourmet restaurant in the city is the Negresco’s Chantecler.

It’s Nice Outside

The Côte d’Azur seems like a great place to hit the beach and relax, yet that’s not really the case. The beaches consist of pebbles and very little sand, the ocean has a steep drop off that makes it difficult to play in the water, and the public beaches are usually pretty packed. However, that’s not really what people go there for. It’s not the ocean itself, but the view of the ocean.

It’s the shimmering waters and the mountains, and the quaint European architecture and everything else that comes together to create a unique atmosphere. The atmosphere pervades the lifestyle, and turns each experience into a special one. It also doesn’t hurt that the weather is perfect all year-round. Take advantage of the sunny blue skies and go for walks through the various street markets, or hire a tour guide and get a feel for the city’s museums and art galleries. Take long meandering drives through the elevated causeways and bluffs, and stop off at the scenic checkpoints for a bit of professional selfie taking. You’ll take full advantage of picturesque landscapes by simply being surrounded by them; no attractions are necessary.

Nice routinely ranks as one of the top 10 charter flight destinations in Europe, and its airport is a popular choice for business and executive charter flights. Terminal 1 at the Côte d’Azur International features a business center is containing eight rooms and a conference room with a capacity of 250 people.
