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...

It has taken me a while to get to writing last summer's reviews, but I wanted this one to be the first, because the Relais is a very wonderful place. The lodge itself is lovely, and although it has the look of an attractive old lodge, and we wondered at first about soundproofing, in fact we never heard a thing,... More

My Husband and I have been here four times. The rooms are absolutely beautiful, the character is amazing. All the rooms have different themes and are all unique. The staff so friendly to make it an even nicer experience. The area is really pretty and there are fabulous walks nearby.
