We were in the Italian Alps again this summer for Iron Bike, an infamous mountain bike race. As it involves a week of exertion and basic camping, we like to spoil ourselves for the two preceding nights at this hotel. It really is lovely. The beds are comfortable. The bathrooms are great. The patron is a real enthusiast. The breakfasts... More

I can only agree what all other reviewers wrote. Lovely welcome, great rooms, lovely alpine decor. If no parking space available at the front, there is plenty room to park at the back. You can sleep with the balcony door open. However, there is some noise from the water in the mountain stream.

We stopped here just by chance on our way back home for an evening meal.What a pleasant surprise we had ! Mountain decor with a resolutely modern touch. Spacious natural wood tables in a design setting. The food was worthy of any luxury restaurant and cooked and served with the same degree of excellence. The wine list would satisfy the... More

We stayed here for two nights in July 2014 as we were about to do a bike race in the area. The hotel was lovely. The staff were engaged and charming and didn't mind us taking our (clean) bikes into the hotel. The breakfasts were great, too. Vernante is in the most beautiful area - the foothills of the Italian... More

Stayed here for two nights on a trip through the Alps Maritimes. Our room was very big and rather quirky, with the bed on an old horse drawn cart! It was comfortable, with a lovely bathroom. The welcome was warm and friendly, and breakfast was excellent. We really enjoyed the spa, which we had all to ourselves! The foot-spa was... More

What a wonderful way to start our 10 day trek across the Maritime Alps into France and down to the Sea. Andrea and his crew have created a wonderful small spa hotel at Relais del Nazionale with great food and hospitality. We were an extended family of 10 who arrived by train in Vernante from Nice from multiple US cities... More

We have been coming here for 6 years and have NEVER had a bad experience. The food in the restaurant is outstanding, the service is attentive without being oppressive, you feel like you're the guest in a family home which offers the appointment of a luxury hotel, great spa, and some of the best eating and drinking you can ever...
