I use Chronopost for everything I send out to the UK, China, and the USA. They are very good and their online tracking system is very useful, plus they are simple to use as you just turn up at the post office and give them the parcel!

UPS operate out of France.  Try their web site http://www.ups.com/content/fr/fr/index.jsx.  Although I haven't used them before here they seem to have a depot in Nice:

DHL and Chronopost both have drive-in depots at Nice airport.  Prices and guranteed delivery times are superb for within France.  I would certainly advise anyone within a handy drive of the airport to use Chronopost there rather than your local LaPoste.  They will guarantee a next day midday delivery ANYWHERE in France for a parcel dropped off before 7 pm  Not sure about UK delivery conditions though.

There was an advert in one of the papers. the Connexion, for a company called Office Xtra. Haven't tried them but their telephone is 04 93 00 07 71.
