“Perfect way to start our holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Thanks to Trip Advisor we were guided to Villa Les Cygnes by all the other positive reviews.
We would certainly agree its a great place and provided the perfect start to our weeks drive along the Côte d'Azur.
Benedicte and Remy are lovely hosts, not in your face but there if you need them.
Benedicte speaks what he calls a little English and what I would call more than enough which was a huge help whilst I spent the first few days trying to recall my schoolboy French.

The location is ideal, about a 10 minute walk to the beach and an easy walk to both the restaurants on the Promenade and those slightly more interesting ones in the West end.
It is on a hill above the Promenade and beach so bare that in mind for the walk back.

We really enjoyed the breakfasts with varying pastries and breads each day plus fresh fruit and yoghurt. Eating in their garden makes it that touch more enjoyable too.

We would happily stay there again if we manage to get back to Nice to see everything we just didn't have time for this trip.

A lovely villa slightly off the tourist track in a quiet street but only a 5 minute walk to the Promenade des Anglais. The owners could not have been more pleasant, welcoming and helpful. They even spoke French slowly and clearly so we
could understand and try to hold a conversation. I believe that the husband also speaks English. The room was spotless and whilst not cheap was good value for money. Highly recommended.

Just returned from 4 blissful nights in this beautiful bed and breakfast. Slightly off the beaten track which gives it an air of genteel living, while just minutes away from the promenade and busier street. A mile walk to the old town, plenty of buses on the way in if preferred, and a 15 minute service on the late bus back. No problem at all to walk especially along the promenade at night. Fab amenities, squeaky clean and most welcoming hosts. Spent one night in local hotel before booking in to Les Cygnes, and whilst it ticked the boxes and was newly renovated, didn't have the charm we enjoyed at the b&b.

We found this hotel on Trip Advisor, read all the reviews, and, decided it was what we thought would suit us. We were not wrong, it went beyond our expectations. A warm welcome from Benedicte and Remy greeted us on arrival, and, their advice, helpfulness was of the highest standard (Remy's English is good, our French poor). The room was clean, spacious, with all facilities, including bottle opener, which we used to open our wine, when sitting out on our private balcony in the evening. The breakfast, which consisted of a selection of breads, cheeses, fruit and pastries, was taken in the garden, surrounded by flowers, orange, lemon, and psalm trees, paradise! The hotel is situated in a quiet location, with a short walk to the promenade and bus stops. A highly recommend place to stay in Nice. Thank you Benedicte and Remy for a truly wonderful stay, at your hotel.

This is a first class small hotel in a quiet street, away from the bustle of the city, yet near to convenient bus stops for access to the Old Town and the airport. Our spacious room was spotlessly clean and had efficient air conditioning. There was a small balcony accessed via French windows which was a lovely spot to sit and enjoy a glass of wine. The owners, Benedicte and Remy, are welcoming and only too happy to provide useful advice on any questions regarding the local area, travel, eating places etc. Breakfast was a delight, it is served in the beautiful garden, shaded by an orange tree, and included a range of pastries, cheeses, yoghurts and fresh fruit.

This hotel has an air of peaceful ambience about it, we slept uninterrupted by any noise from outside and highly recommend for anyone visiting Nice.

It would be hard to find such a perfect hotel. This was our second visit to Villa Les Cygnes and it was just as wonderful as the first time about 3 years ago. We stayed for 8 nights and came home feeling relaxed and rested. Nothing is too much trouble for Bénédicte & Rémy they welcome you in to their home. The villa is in a lovely quiet part of Nice and about 5 minutes walk to the beach. Breakfast is a lovely start to the day served in the pretty garden. We had a room with a large balcony and sat most evenings enjoying a glass of wine, bread and cheese and the silence of the evening, perfect. Sue and Dave Brown

From the first welcome greeting to a fond farewell Benedicte and Remy were marvelous hosts at their beautiful gem of an inn. The bus from the airport let us off at a convenient stop for a walk up the hill into the pleasant quiet neighborhood where the hotel is situated. We stayed at the beginning and the end of our trip to southern France - the perfect bookends for our trip. Our lovely room was spotless and pleasant - especially loved the balcony and the porch. We had a delicious breakfast in the serene garden served by our hosts. We are already talking about our next trip and a longer stay at this great place.
