" Au Jardin de Victorine ".
Room La Bignone.
Nestled on one of the 7 hills in NICE
Capital City of the RIVIERA, our Establishment boasts 4 Lovely GUEST ROOMS.
Our guest house which dates from the seventies is located in a quiet area on the edge of Nice, called "Nissa la Bella" in the local patois. It is surrounded by lovely ancient trees, bonsais, succulents, and a variety of local flora which help to embellish the beautiful mountain views that can be seen from the infinity pool.
The pool is strategically nestled into the property for our clients'use and pleasure.
The Jardin de Victorine is 1600 square meters, 900 of which are left in its naturally wooded state.
The guest house was completely renovated in June 2011 and its rooms are located on three different levels. We will be delighted to greet you at level 0 !..
Our guest chambers are located on levels -1 and our Studio and kitchen space are located on level -2 with its view towards the poolside area.
Every room has it's own separate entry and private outside space and access to the swimming pool.
Au jardin de Victorine, you will notice that we have a love for nature and its bounty; we are blessed with old trees such as olive trees, umbrella pines and fig trees that provide shade for us in the high heat of summer. And because the climate is so favorable, we have a passion for growing flowers and plants such as bougainvillea, oleanders, banana trees, mimosas, camellias, rosebuhs, agapanthuses, ferns, rhododendrons, myrtle and a whole host of other wonderful sights and smells, you will be able to witness in the garden at all seasons!
If you arrive by car, you may park your vehicle in a private car park which is shaded and cooled by climbing plants on the pergola.
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.
All along the most famous avenue in the world, the "Promenade des Anglais", and the site of the prestigious "Négresco" hotel, you'll find the "Bay of Angels" beaches. The beaches are located 6 km. from the "Jardin de Victorine". Go ahead and make a day of it and enjoy a dip in the Mediterranean sea ! And the sight seeing is worth it too !
Located on level 1, it has an area of 12 square meters, its own private bathroom and shower within the room. It also has a separate WC, or toilet as we call them, for privacy sake. It is equipped with a queen-sized (160 x 200 cm).
There is a small covered patio and terrace allocated to “La Bignone” and from here, you may see the infinity pool as well as a magnificent panoramic view of the mountains.
This room is equipped with :
• hair dryer
• 21” flat screen T.V.
Very nice guesthouse in the hills of Nice with a beautiful garden. The silence of the area and the endless looking pool make it very easy to relax.
Jardin de Victorine is a very good starting-point for all the points of interests, like Nice, Cap Ferrat, Cannes, Antibes, Monaco and the beautiful coast-road to Saint Tropez.
The host was that hospitable, every day with a superb breakfast with a lot of homemade delightfulnesses. There was also a private parking lot for the car.
We enjoyed events like the Film Festival in Cannes and the preparation for the Grand-Prix of Monaco, incl. the trainings of Formula 1, Formula 2 and the Porsche Cup.
Jardin de Victorine is highly recommended!
Michèle’s house, „Au Jardin de Victorine“ is a little paradise above Nice. After trips along the French Rivera and sightseeing in Nice, we always enjoyed to return to Michèle`s Provence house, nice and quiet and with a beautiful view to the mountains.
The wonderful garden with all the mediterranean plants, the pool and seats on the various terraces are ideal for relaxing.
From the moment we arrived, Michèle was an extremely helpful host and gave us a lot of good advices for excursions and activities. She served breakfast on a beautiful laid table – yoghurt, jam and cake were homemade.
Michèle speaks English very well (also some German) and patiently did her best to improve our French. She loves her garden and knows everything about plants – it’s really a great pleasure for everyone who loves plants too to stay at “Au Jardin de Victorine”.
Everything was very tasteful and with a lot of passion for detail – so it was easy to feel comfortable at this lovely place. Thank you Michèle, we will come back!
Merci mille fois pour ce magnifique commentaire !
Mais vous aussi, vous avez été si sympathiques, souriants, heureux d'être là, intéressés par tout ce dont je vous parlais, que tout ce que j'ai fait, je l'ai fait avec grand plaisir.
J'ai été tellement heureuse de vous rencontrer que j'ai essayé de vous recevoir comme des amis dans notre maison d'hôtes... et c'était un bonheur pour moi !
Wie ich Ihnen sagte, wenn Sie nach Deutschland wieder gegangen sind, Sie fehlen mir !!!
Soyez toujours très heureux, ainsi que toute votre famille et restez tels que vous êtes ! (... Übersetzung : bleiben Sie so wie Sie sind ??????)
ALL THE BEST ! Michèle
En raison de la rénovation totale du Jardin de Victorine, je passe beaucoup de temps au jardin, pour mettre en place les bougainvillées, lauriers roses, agapanthes et toute la flore méditerranéenne que je souhaite faire découvrir à mes clients. Mais j'aime aussi jouer au golf... apprécier le vin et faire la cuisine avec des produits régionaux !
