We stayed for a week in August 2006. We were initially surprised at the location of the hotel, set into the rock face and seemingly incorporated into private flats. The reception staff were very helpful and our car was valet parked (at additional cost but not extortionate). Our luggage was taken to our room via the quaint and tiny lifts. The room was very clean and although small, very comfortable and stylish (except for the plastic furniture on the balcony).
We ate in the hotel restaurant twice for dinner during our stay and the food was excellent. We also had a couple of light lunches. Breakfast was very pleasant sitting out in the lemon grove as long as we were not too close to some guests who liked the sound of their own voices! On two mornings we chose to take breakfast in our room. We would thoroughly recommend this! The greedy sparrows and pigeons with an eye on our croissants added to the fun!
Nice itself was a delight and being in the old town made all the difference to our fun nights out, despite some torrential rain showers. We had one special dinner at Negresco and many much cheaper dinners in the fascinating narrow streets nearer to La Perouse.
The beach was an interesting place to people watch. We tried one day on the public beach and two on the private beach. It was worth paying those euros for a sun-lounger as the pebbles are not very condusive to sun-bathing! Swimming was a bit limited when the jelly fish came in. Look for the flags indicating 'meduse'!
Our best day out was to Vence, a lovely medieval town out in the mountains; a haven for artists. Tourettes Sur Loup was equally quaint and we spotted Charlie Watts from the Rolling Stones there...well, we thought it was him and the RS were playing Nice that week! Grasse was huge disappointment.
We will be returning to La Perouse next year and maybe many more years in the future. There is so much more to see and do and this hotel is the perfect place to be.
