This fantastic B&B is set in a small friendly village in the hills above Nice. It is run by Corinne and Benoit, a delightful French couple who have the knack of making all their guests feel entirely at home. The rooms are simple, beautiful and individual with many having views to the coast. The fantastic continental breakfasts are served on the terrace and include bread baked 50m away and their own delicious home-made yoghurt and jams. Join one of the couple’s range of day trips to hidden gems in the area such as the small nearby family farm producing organic goat’s cheese. Take the tour, meet the producers and enjoy a goat’s cheese tasting picnic afterwards. Small group cooking lessons are also offered. The morning’s creations are enjoyed at a shared table over a long lunch accompanied by matched wines from the very local vineyard.
