The exterior of Le Negresco in Nice


Le Negresco

A national historic monument that opened its doors to the rich and famous in 1913, Le Negresco enjoys a picturesque setting overlooking the Bay of Angels. Every inch of this property is a celebration of l'art de vivre, an aesthetic that can be credited to Madame Jeanne Augier, whose family took over the hotel in 1957. A collection of more than 6,000 pieces reflecting the greatest periods of French art and craftsmanship adorn the accommodations and public spaces. Of particular note are the carousel horses in La Rotonde Brasserie and the rich walnut paneling in Le Relais bar. Bedrooms and suites are individually styled to please even the most drastic of decorator mood swings, and guests will find flourishes of Louis XIII, Art Deco and everything in between. Located in the heart of Nice, Le Negresco is also just steps from a private beach.
