The French Riviera
Lifehack: book a flight to Nice, at Côte d’Azur, when your current city is nothing but cold, grey and wet. Pretty obvious, right? Yet we have never done it before. Until last week. I’ll tell you even more – I’ve never been to The French Riviera and it was about time we changed that.
To be honest, good weather wasn’t guaranteed at all and it snowed in Nice at the same time that it did in London (!!!) but with some positive thinking and manifestation tools in hand we found ourselves soaking up the Niçois sunshine.
Côte d’Azur France and HOTEL LA PEROUSE kindly invited us to spend two nights with them and I’m pretty sure that no other hotel has a better location in Nice. To put this into perspective, let me give you an example. While planning this trip, I spent a good chunk of time on Pinterest researching famous places in Nice to visit and made a mental note to stop by what seemed like a popular viewpoint to take pictures of Nice from above. When we got to Hotel La Perouse we realised that it’s located in the exact same spot and we get those famous views just by looking from our balcony or terrace.
We had a lovely meal in the hotel restaurant, Le Patio on the first night, properly indulging in their Provencial cuisine. I can only imagine how lovely it will be in the summer when evenings are warm and the meals are served in the courtyard under the orange and lemon trees. Tres chic! That alone is a good enough reason to come back to Nice. But ’till then we got a preview of that during our breakfasts.
Staying so close to old town, the harbour and the promenade des Anglais allows you to really get to know Nice even if you are there for just two days. Honestly, Nice blew me away with its beauty. It exceeded all my expectations! The colour of the water looked like it was photoshopped and the whole vibe reminded me of being somewhere exotic and tropical. Everything was so vibrant, people were so friendly, food was so good and our memories are so happy!
Nice, you are truly nice! We will be back soon ♡
