“Another beautiful locale”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

On a hill above Nice in Cimiez, i think, is this convent and garden. It's also across the park from the Matisse Museum which is well worth the trip. Lovely views from up there too.

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

You could spend half day in the area visiting the church, the beautiful gardens, walk through the Olive grove to the Matisse Museum, if interested with archeology there is a Roman site on the premises and through the exit opposite the monastery you can walk around the beautiful Regina Palace where Queen victoria used to stay and where Matisse died. If curious enough there are still beautiful properties in the area.

“good views”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

15 min from down town by bus. Walking and taking photos took one hour. More time is needed to visit the church and the museum.

“Garden is wonderful!”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

I went there for the first time about 15 years ago for a marriage and felt in love with that place! The Convent is really nice and I came back during "Nuits Musicales" for a classical music concert in the Cloitre. The atmosphere is fascinating and the garden is really beautiful!

“A poetic place”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Best at the end of the afternoon , when the light becomes orange. Beautiful gardens overlooking the city. Peaceful and quiet atmosphere. Don't miss the Matisse painting museum, and the Nice archeological museum, and roman arena close to the monastery.
