We didnt want any big fancy hotels when we contemplated staying in the french riviera, and when we settled on Juan Le Pins, just outside of Antibes we couldnt have chosen a nicer spot to get away from it all.
Hotel Nina struck us as a nice boutique hotel that apparently was just yards from the beach, we decided to take a chance and book it an we werent dissapointed.
The hotel was literally yards from the beach, probably about 100 or so to be accurate, the dcor of hotel was wonderful housing beautiful pieces of furniture and art collected from the owners travels over the years and their parisian home.
From the moment we were greeted at the airport, which was arranged by Stephan to the moment we walked through the door at Hotel Nina our trip was always going to be a little bit specia. Not becasue we were staying in 5 star luxury but because Stephan & Nina really do care and go out of their way to make your stay with them as pleasent as can be.
Although we didnt have breakfast much ( mainly because we slept in until Breakfast had finished ) the room which it was served was like walking into some top designer / artists apartment without the flashiness. The art pieces and furniture on display in that room were beautiful, and through the patio doors led into another world, that being the fabulous bonzai garden which Clare & I found many a peaceful momement and somewere to go and chill and reflect. Stephan came out one evening, said hello, lit some beautiful candles and left us alone....... what a nice touch !!
The rooms were impeccably clean, very cosy and decored beautifully, next time though we will definately be staying in a room with a balcony and sea view not only are these slightly bigger but to have that balcony and view is what its all about ! Our trip with a sea view and balcony would have scored 10/10 but will have to settle for 9/10 as we had an inside double :-(, still nice but not quiet the same
In summary, great hosts, lovely wonderful people, beautiful place and idealy situated with the beach, shops and lovely restaurants just a stones throw away.
looking forward to coming back................... and soon
Thanks Stephan & Nina x
