Nestled on one of the 7 hills of Nice, our guest house « Au jardin de Victorine » offers an enchanted interlude , in a garden dedicated to flowers and rare plants. Once your car is parked on our private parking, we invite you to enjoy the peace and quiet, to stroll in the garden, to admire our collections of succulents and bonsai or just treat yourself to a delicious nap under one of our old trees. Enjoy our breakfast of fruit, yogurts, jams, pastries, while Michèle will give you a thousand tips on Nice and its surroundings. Then you will rest by the infinity pool, before exploring Nice and its surroundings... You can recharge your batteries and renew your mind in our 3 guest rooms or in our fully independent studio, and relax on their private terraces looking at flowers and discovering the exceptional panorama on the mountains of the « Niçois » hinterland that delights eyes. Inside, the decoration combines antique furnishing and modern materials in a relaxing harmony. « Le Jardin de Victorine » is a real haven of peace ideally located, because it is only a few kilometres from the beaches of The Riviera. All along the most famous avenue in the world, the « Promenade des Anglais », and the site of the prestigious « Négresco » hotel, you’ll find La Baie des Anges (the « Bay of Angels ») beaches. The beaches are located 6 km. from the « Jardin de Victorine ». The panoramic view extends over the mountains that surround Nice, which includes the modest Mount Chauve, the Baou de Saint Jeannet, to the impressive « La Madonne d’Utelle » (1175m) and in the backdrop, the summits of Isola 2000, where we love skiing during winter. Go ahead and make a day of it and enjoy a dip in the Mediterranean sea ! And the sight seeing is worth it too!

A beautiful, relaxing stay in the mountains of Nice

5 on June 05, 2016

We made a last minute booking to stay at Michele and Dom's place and it was the best decision we made on our trip through France. We stayed 3 nights in late May and didn't want to leave. Dom and Michele were the most incredible hosts, not only was Michele's breakfast delicious each morning but their advice on what sites to see and how to get around town made our stay so easy and relaxing. Being from Australia, and our French language skills being basic at best, it was such a bonus that Michele was fluent in English too (Dom's English was excellent as well). One of the day's the bus's were on strike and Dom so generously offered to take us in to town, we were ever so grateful. The rooms are beautiful and clean, excellent showers and the outdoor areas reminded us of a 5 star resort. The pool looked so inviting we nearly jumped straight in! We really could have spent a lot longer here and had our other travel plans not been so strict we would have. It was a real home away from home. Thanks Michele and Dom!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much, Jason and Yolanda, for this wonderful comment you wrote about our guesthouse. I’m so moved and also proud that you felt as if you were at home, here, in our guesthouse nestled on one of the hills of Nice ! Dom was happy to take you by car to the town : it took only a few minutes and you seems so disappointed ! And also we didn’t want Yolanda to be tired with the baby she is expecting. We were very delighted to meet you and to have the opportunity to speak with you every morning at breakfast and every evening when you came back from the tours you made inside Nice and in the neighbouring towns. We are so happy when we welcome young people who are open-minded and interested in hearing stories and legends from the country they visit…. And we like helping them to organize the visits of the places they want to see in our region. You know, our mutual contact, from the day when you arrive to the day you leave was so close and spontaneous, you were so kind and smiling, that we didn’t stop wanting to help you and to explain you everything to make your short stay as unforgettable as possible ! Don’t change the way you are… Your baby will be lucky to have such parents as you are ! Take care of you and please, give us news when the baby comes ! Michèle et Dom

We stayed 3 nights au jardin de victorine in the room bignole (end of may, beginn of june). We loved it. it was the first stopp at our "tour de sud-france". it couldn't have been better. the room was lovely, the view was amazing! if it would have been warmer we surely would have hanged out in the pool. it was calm at night and the breakfast was very good. everything was homemade (except the cornflakes ;-)), the confiture, the joghurt, the bread, the cake....formidable. Our host was also very very nice and helpful and my boyfriend found a new friend, the dog ;-) I warmly recommend this b&b! Best Wishes and Greetings Cordialement et Merci Sandra and Peter

About the innkeepers

Because the total renovation of the garden of Victorine, I spend much time in the garden, to implement the bougainvillea, oleander, agapanthes and all the Mediterranean flora that I wish to discover to my clients. But I also love to play golf... to enjoy wine and cooking with regional products !
