Finding good, comfortable accomodation with a good value for money on the Cote d'Azur is like winning the lottery. The Résidence Villa d'Elsa is such a find.
The residence is not a typical hotel, but more of an appartment hotel. It's a well renovated building, with nice, well designed modernised rooms. Reception was very friendly, providing helpful tips and the access information to the free internet.
The room we had was offering a small kitchenette, which allowed us to enjoy baguette and croissants in the comfort of our own appartment in the morning. A nespresso machine was also a nice add-on. We bought capsules at the nearby Casino supermarché, some bakeries are also within walking distance. A short stroll of 3 to 5 minutes brings you to the beautiful beaches of St. Juan les Pins.
In the evening, the pedestrian area around the restaurant offers many different culinary options.
The bed of our room was a fold-away sofa, which was surprisingly comfortable. The windows opened to a pedestrian road, with many restaurants, at night quite lively. Best thing: to go with the flow and stay out late... Otherwise you might have to keep windows closed for sleeping and switch on the aircon.
Our summary: we will be back! The Résidence Villa d'Elsa is a great find, offering all we needed.
