I stayed at the Clair for a long weekend with three friends, using the hotel as a base for some end of season riding in the sun. The owners (Esther and Luba) are very welcoming and the layout of the hotel really works if you are travelling in a group. The ground floor rooms all let out onto a pleasant courtyard, so plenty of room to build up the bikes and sit around for a post ride beer. Esther is also happy for you to keep your bikes in your room, which makes a pleasant change. Breakfasts are a good 'cyclists breakfasts' - not the usual croissant and coffee affair. Some of the rooms have cookers, fridges, kettles and you can cook and eat there if you want, but there are lots of good reasonably priced restaurants on hand in the Old Port area just a few minutes away. The fridge is good for beer though! Serbian plum brandy is also a great cycling energy drink - according to Luba - who has the biggest collection of Serbian moonshine in the South of France....I am sure that's why my climbing powers were mysteriously missing on our daily rides :0) The Clair was recommended by Claire (not to be confused !) from Cycling Cote D'Azur (we bought three self guide rides as Garmin downloads which were really excellent value and saved all the usual faff with maps and trying to get out of a big city on a bike) and I can understand why. We will be back same time next year for some last minute sun! So thanks to Esther and Luba!
