“A Fantastic Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2006

We have just stayed 3 nights at this excellent B&B. The owners Martine & Jacques are lovely people and make you feel very welcome.

The room was comfortable and included a fridge and TV with english speaking channels. Although there was no air-conditioning, which I must admit concerned me a little when I booked, a fan was provided and this kept us and the room cool.

The breakfast - well this for me was the highlight! with freshly baked croissants and the preserves made with fruits from the garden. yum yum.

The pool was clean and a welcome respite from the heat.

The hill up to the hotel is steep and is about a 15 minute walk. There are bus stops at the bottom of the hill and these can take you into and out of the city centre.

A word of warning though! Don't use taxi's!!! they are expensive and don't like having to travel here. They charged us 30 euros for a 1.5 mile trip compared to 1.3 euros per person on the bus.

  • Liked — Friendliness of the owners
  • Disliked — the hill

This was a really lovely place to stay although there were two major drawbacks. Firstly we were in Nice in August - tres hot - and there was no air conditioning, which felt unbearable at first but we got used to it. Secondly, you have to go up one of the biggest, longest hills to get here. However, both of those things were worth it for the friendly welcome we received and the beautiful italianate house. Our room was big, confortable and clean with it's own bathroom, fridge and TV. The buffet breakfasts were very nice (fresh croissants etc.)and you could sit outside on the gorgeous terrace to eat. It has it's own pool (that we had to ourselves mostly) which was great after getting to the top of the hill and the owners Jacques and Martine were more than friendly, helping us with our French and speaking as much English as they could with us. I would recommmend this B&B and probably stay again, but unless you enjoy hiking hire a car for the hill!
