Cathy & Michele made our stay such an enjoyable experience -- wonderful Hosts. They are very friendly and most accommodating and we were sorry to have to leave so soon. Their home is beautiful and the view from their pool overlooking Nice and the Mediterranean is awesome!! We plan to be back and stay longer.

Every now and then, a hotel actually "WOW’S" me into giving a grand five star review, and this B&B accomplished that! This is our SECOND stay at this magnificent B&B in a superb location convenient to the city center and shops. The service was brilliant and delivered in an unremarkable manner. Our room was fabulous with two great balconies overlooking the Med. It is the perfect spot for touring Nice and the coastal villages. Cathy and Michele made my wife and I feel welcome and "at home", our hosts were perfect, very friendly, and informative and couldn't be more helpful. Our room was very spacious and absolutely spotlessly clean. All the facilities are a work of art, the multi color pool was inviting and the bed was very restful. To Cathy and Michele …..Merci beaucoup!

Room Tip: "Both rooms are very confortable"

We stayed 4 nights in the suite on the top floor. It is hard to put into words how great the experience was for us. The hosts Cathy and Michel are the best. The view from the room was fantastic. Cathy's breakfasts were great. All the earlier reviews are totally accurate. Yes it was a little steep walk back from town, but there is a bus available. Cathy was even nice to enough to drive us to the train station when we left. We will return.

My wife and I spent 7 glorious nights at Vista Azzurra over the Easter Holiday 2013. As is my new style of review here are my comments:

1. We had the Chamber Room - the large one on the second floor. It was more of a suite than a room. It was divided into a very large bathroom with shower and huge tub, a sitting room and a large bedroom. The view from the sitting room or the bedroom was exceptional - you had a panoramic view of Nice, the sea and the famous beach. The room was very clean, modern and well appointed. It was very quiet at night and we loved to sleep with the curtain open and see the beautiful ocean and lights in the background.

2. Cathy and Michele are expectional hosts. They go out of their way to welcome you into their home. Make sure to meet their lovely dog - Sushi. Each morning Cathy would prepare a lovely breakfast - we like to eat continental so we would have a croissant, fresh orange juice from their orange trees, her home orange marmalade is to die for, fruit, yogurt and great coffee. She even made us a wonderful lemon tart. We often had nice discussions with Cathy and Michele.
As soon as we arrived on our first day Michele offered us a drink immediately - albeit we settled for water as we had a long trip and felt wine or a liquer would be too much.

3. While the home is up on a hill - you need to accept there are a few steps to climb to get there (although there is a bus that also services the home - but last trip is at 8 pm) we felt that the B & B is ideally located. It would take us by foot - 15 minutes to get to the tram every morning and from the tram you can get to almost anywhere you want. For example you can get to the major train station in a half hour easily - down the hill and take the tram for two stops. We actually found that after having a great meal in Nice that the short walk back to the B & B very enjoyable and we did it a couple of nights in the rain and still loved it. By the way we are close to 60 years old so for anyone younger it should be a cake walk.

4. On our last day as we were transferring to a hotel as we wanted to be close to the airport as we had a very early flight the following day - Michele drove us to our hotel. As we left we felt we were saying good bye to old friends.

In conclusion - if you want to meet two wonderful hosts - Cathy and Michele, you want a beautiful clean and spacious suite, a great view, a great breakfast, and a welcoming B & B - we highly recommend Vista Azzurra.

They also have a pool and wonderful yard but we did not take advantage of it.

To Cathy and Michele we say Merci and Grazie.
Until we see you again.

Room Tip: Pick the large upstairs room if possible - although I am sure all the rooms are nice.

My family of five (three adults and two children ages 7 and 10) absolutely love Cathy and Michel's Vista Azzurra. The B&B is in a perfect location with epic views and you might get lucky in the early morning sunrise and spot Corsica out on the horizon. Our rooms open up to the Mediterranean sunrise every morning and Cathy makes delicious and ample breakfast, giving us a nice kick start for the day. After a long day of exciting and fun Nice adventure, Bella Vista Suite greets us with an enormous bubble bath. Vista Azzurra also has a beautiful yard with fruit trees and a swimming pool. It's too bad we visited during the winter, as I am sure we would've loved to go for a swim and soak in the sun in the summer months. Cathy and Michel are excellent hosts, heart-warming, and welcoming. We will definitely be back, hopefully in the summer so we can enjoy more of this wonderful B&B! Thank you so much for your hospitality Cathy and Michel and hope to see you soon.

Vista Azzura is perfect in every way - your friendly and generous hosts Cathy and Michel, the stunning views, the spacious and clean accommodation, the amazing location. We spent 4 weeks in France and this was definitely the highlight of our trip. It's better than home and the breakfast was sensational. We can't wait to go back and experience Cathy and Michel's hospitality all over again. Tracey and Damir
