Artful Escape of the French Riviera
What we think
Skylark only includes hotels that meet our stamp of approval. Our editorial review for this one isn’t ready yet — but we’re working on it! Below is the hotel’s own description.
What other palace best symbolises the legend of the French Riviera? More than 100 years after its creation, as the perfect image of the legendary Riviera, Le Negresco reveals our desire for enjoyment, relaxation and comfort.
A unique privately owned Palace ,The Negresco offers 125 Rooms and Suites each decorated differently and personalized with exceptional authentic furniture and art works as well as two very different restaurants, the celebrated gastronomic restaurant, Le Chantecler, and the unique brasserie, La Rotonde, with XVIII century Carousel decoration and a beautiful turn of the century British style Bar. The Charm of a colorful Living Museum Frequented by the stars, politicians, and heads of state, its magical name evokes a certain art de vivre and the happy go lucky days of the Edwardian era. Since 1957 the hotel has been owned by Jeanne Augier who has put all her energy into creating a Museum-Hotel that has become thanks to her private collection a veritable showcase of French art for her international visitors where epic periods in the history of France are represented from the Renaissance period to the third millennium with modern art and designers. Ideally located on the French Riviera, the mythical palace is located in the heart of Nice in front of the Mediterranean sea 5 km from the International Airport and half way between Cannes and Monte Carlo with the beautiful backdrop of the Alps offering breath taking views and innumerable discovery excursions to quaint hilltop villages.
