The hotel is warm, charming, beautiful. Dinner and included breakfast were excellent. The view from our room was unbelievable. The hotel is on the top of the mountain, and we could see Monaco, Nice, and all the way to Cannes. The full moon rising over the sea was very romantic. Service was great, the proprietor and servers spoke English, and we would definitely go back. Only problem was my GPS did not bring us up the front of the mountain, the suggested route, we later discovered. It "recalculated" us up the backside of the mountain to the hotel, and the back road is not for the feint of heart. Once we arrived, the hospitality of the proprietor made the journey worth the challenge.
