Karin and Sydney who own and run La Parare have refined hospitality to a fine art. We enjoyed a warm welcome followed by a quick tour of the property and then to settle into our room - no, not a room, but a suite offering a charming sitting room with large fireplace (apparently the original for the property), a surprisingly spacious contemporary bathroom and a cozy bedroom with an oh so comfortable bed.
After a hectic tour of Italy, it was a welcome pleasure to lap up the rest and relaxation that is part and parcel of La Parare. Our suite overlooked a terrace which in turn provides stunning views of the valley below. Certainly there are more than a few u-turns on the short trip from Nice (you quickly get used to them) but the charm of La Parare's location is also the mantra of real estate agents - location, location, location. It's an easy trip into Nice (if indeed you want to go there) and also just as easy to plan delightful drives along back roads to charming villages such as Peillon in one direction or St Paul de Vence in the other. Indulgent breakfasts started the day on the terrace - even in October! Nothing was too much trouble for Karin and Sydney - they make hospitality look far more simple than it is.
