There were many things that made this stay great for my partner and I while we were here over the last four days, but the best part had to be the kindness and hospitality of the hosts, Franck and Joëlle.
I'll start with our arrival... We were visiting in part to see the Grand Prix practice in Monaco, but when we left home, we forgot our tickets and didn't realize it until we were in the air. I'm an aerospace engineer and a bit of a gear head, and I was really looking forward to this part of the trip, and I was going to be bummed if we missed it. We had a good friend mail the tickets, and when we arrived, Franck greeted us with a smile, told us we didn't have to stress, and our package was waiting in our room!
The rest of the stay felt more like staying with family than being in a hotel. Parking is available on the property, and the train station is within easy walking distance. The rooms are spacious (ask for one of the suites for a little more space for not a lot of extra cash), the hotel is quiet (all we heard at night was the croaking of a frog and an occasional passing train that was nothing more than a low rumble and it stops running after midnight), and there is plenty of space in the small garden to read or eat a take away lunch or dinner.
Franck and Joëlle also made sure that we were prepared for each of the days we were here. Without even needing to ask, Franck would provide us with directions and sightseeing tips for Villefranche, Cap Ferrat (within walking distance and with some breathtaking views) Nice and Monaco every morning at breakfast with a smile and a desire to see us enjoy ourselves for the day. Joëlle had the same warm and caring smile each night when we returned, and she always asked if we enjoyed our time. They were both genuinely interested in the quality and enjoyment of our stay, and that made this trip memorable, stress free, and full of wonderful memories. It is obvious that these two go the extra mile to make sure the experience is the same for everyone who stays at Hotel Patricia!
In short, I highly recommend this hotel, and if we're ever back on the Côte de Azur, we will be sure to return here!!
