“Beautiful proposal in Southern France B&B!”
Reviewed 22 March 2011

My fiancé and I left Australia's summer weather to enjoy the winter in France! We had hired a car from Paris and made our way down South of France to the beautiful Bed and Breakfast at La Parare. On arrival, we were warmly greeted by Sydney & Karin, the owners of La Parare. They know the area very well, and were kind to offer recommendations on places to visit and see.
*Please note: a car is highly recommended to see and do more. Also, we noticed two ways to get to La Parare, one for example, has approx 15 hair pin turns, also, the roads are quite narrow in some parts, especially if you're not used to it (like us Aussies) ;) Other than that, the views driving up or down the hill were picturesque! (see photo attached).
After a day of shopping in Nice, it was on the 2nd night, that my partner had already organised (with some help from Sydney) to set up the room we were staying in, a very romantic and unexpected proposal surprise. He knew how much I loved France and its culture and, topped it off in a beautiful location together, with a fireplace. It was simply perfect. :)
La Parare, makes you feel comfortable to relax and unwind. Our room had a selection of books on offer to sit back and read or, simply listen to some French music with a glass of wine and taking in the amazing views of old French houses throughout the mountains. We stayed for 3 nights, and visited surrounding cities including Monte Carlo, Cannes, and Nice (even drove across the border for lunch into Italy!).
Surrounded by tranquillity, amazing mountainous views, it was a relaxing and comfortable stay with homemade continental breakfast served daily. La Parare will definitely be on our list of places to come back to, the whole experience was exceptional, and one we'll never forget. Please enjoy our photos! :)

Unfortunately i can´t stayed more than 2 nights at the one of the best hotels in my life! The rooms are just miraculous! And the view its just another sight of the Côte de Azur, because the idea of the Côte de Azur is the beach but if you go here you will see just fantastic mountain top and villages that will stun you with their beauty.
But the best of this hotel is the most fun and very friendly couple! I dont want to tell it all but they can talk every known languange in the hole world! At least half

Went to La Parare with my girlfriend for a stay of 5 nights with the idea to both relax and use the place as our premise from which to explore the cote d'azur area. We were not disappointed.

In fact, the place turned to be even nicer than pictured on the somewhat antique website: a cute former sheep farmer's house tucked away in the hills and equipped with a tremendously large olive-tree shaded garden whilst at the same time only 20 min away from Nice.

Apart from the cute and typical French setting, the owners' hospitality made our stay worth every penny. Upon our arrival we were welcomed with a so-called table d'hotes: in our case a barbecue. All guests together around the table. Liked the effort by the owners to introduce guests to one another despite languague barriers and socially engage with all (thanks to their capability to speak more than 5 languages).

During our stay we furthermore received many useful tips on interesting sights and restaurants beyond those mentioned in our way too exhausting travel guide and, when needed, suppport was provided in doing reservations.

All in all a fantastic chambre d'hotes and being familiar with the concept I can truly say that this was our best experience to date.

La Parare was fantastic! We stayed for 4 nights. Sydney and Karin were wonderful hosts and it felt like we were staying with family. We were looking to get away from it all and we certainly found 'serenity' with this place! Not a difficult place to find, some whindy roads but the scenery is magnificent and therefore a great drive! Extremely quiet so a great place to relax - I had to force myself to wake up in the mornings as I could have slept all day! Breakfast was always ready and very satisfying! Sydney and Karin were great! Very helpful with where to go/not to go and how to get there. Nice and Monaco are not all that far away and good for day trips. The B & B is very well maintained and there is a lot of love put into this home. The pool was magnificent and ideal for relaxing after a day out. Would highly recommend this place and you will not be disappointed. We would definitely return if we had the opportunity.

This is my first review on Tripadvior! I've collected all this very useful information on tripadvisor before my vacation and now it's time to give some information back.
We just returned from La Parare and I must say that we already miss this place! Our hosts Karen and Sydney were the perfect hosts and entertainers! We watched the world cup together, they invited us to some wonderful barbeques and they were always there for us to give us travel tips. We really felt like we are visiting our friends. One of the places they suggested to visit was Paloma Beach on Cap Ferrat - this was really one of the highlight of our trips.
La Parare is absolutely wonderful. We had the Terrace room - a huge and beautiful room with the biggest and coolest bathroom ever. The property is absolutely wonderful with olive trees, secluded terraces and a nice pool.
Also, the place has high speed internet which even works on the terraces.
Ask for their Foi Gras dinners when you visit – it deserves a Michelin star and it is very romantic!

We just can’t wait to go back!!!

My husband and i just spent 4 days at La Parare as we were looking for an escape from city life. It was even more than we could have imagined. When we arrived, we first were greeted by the owners Sidney and Karin--who acted more like old friends rather than "owners" of a hotel. The gorgeous home is from the 1600's and Sidney and Karen decorated each of the four spacious guest rooms with beautiful artwork and items from their travels all over the world. Breakfast consisted of homeade jams, breads, yogurt and fruit--and we got to dine outside with a gorgeous view of their gardens and mountain. A perfect get away!
