Just 20 minutes from Nice city centre, the hotel is adjacent to the Villefranche-sur-Mer Provençal market, whose scents rise in streams to the windows. It also sits directly on the waterfront, where the sea is so quiet that it barely sways the sleepy masts moored there. You will get to enjoy delicate little touches throughout your stay, like the chocolates carefully deposited on the pillow by invisible hands.
Of all the special moments that punctuate your stay, there is a plentiful, refined breakfast, which can be enjoyed on a balcony where it looks as though the sea itself might touch it. The general mood of the port soothes and transports.
In the evening, music reigns on the terraces: an invitation from the port to come down and browse like a poem, as Cocteau, who stayed in this exceptional place several times, away from all commotion, might say.
