As numerous TA-reviewers have pointed out: this is not for the faint-hearted. The road up to the hotel is a challenge for those (most of us) who are used to travel on ordinary roads. Don't be put off though - once you get up there you will find the effort worth while. Be sure to have a small car... Beautiful... More

My wife and I stayed here for the last week in September. We were touring some of the French and Italian Riviera. This was an excellent base to explore from. We went from St Paul de Vence to Portofino and also visited some of the Italian mountain villages nearby. The hotel provides a wonderful friendly service, a special thank you... More

I just cannot write enough good things about this hotel. My wife and I have just spent a relaxing enjoyable week here with some of the best hotel staff I have ever come across. Forget the drive up the hillside because the hotel is well worth the effort of driving and the reward of the stunning views, among other things... More

Just across the French border and into Italy, which was just what we were looking for. Yes, the hotel is up a windy hillside road and maybe some of the local scenery is not the most picturesque, but, would we go back again, absolutely yes. The room (201) was clean and very well appointed, excellent bathroom and everything worked. The... More

The road up to the hotel, 2.5 kilometers, was tatty. We wondered what was in store. No need to worry, friendly helpful welcome and clearly a hotel with much style - with much charm of a bygone era. Room very good, breakfast generous and staff eager to make our stay special. Lovely pool and delightful views down to the coast.... More

We have just returned from a week's stay at 'La Riserva' and have enjoyed every minute of it. Our room was exactly as it was described on the website, with stunning views over the Italian riviera towards Monaco. Admittedly, the room's air condidtioning could have been a bit more efficient, but that might have been because it was extremely hot... More

La Riserva is truly a special place. I fell in love with it from a Charme and Relax brochure years ago....and this year, we finally were able to visit--- "fitting in" Paris and Provence around Ventimiglia, because of this hotel's unique position! True, the 3km. ride to the hotel is "challenging", but, the reward at the end of the road... More

We were here for one night. The food was of a very high quality, served by delightful professional staff who were intent on making it a great experience. As others have said the view takes your breath away - provided you survive the drive up there on a very narrow winding road, although the hotel is very well signposted. I... More

We found this place using Google map. We wanted to have quiet, small italian place close to Nice airport. Indeed this is place fullfilled the specs. Service was really charming, no need to remember your room number as they did it. Service was adapted according to needs. Hotel is on the top of hill, 3km does not sound too much... More

The location of this family run hotel is quite simply stunning! The road to it is a typical Italian mountain road. Though only 3 kms or so (via the short road) from the town, it feels more remote with superb views along the coast from its high position. The pool and grounds are very well kept by Salvatori the gardener,... More
