La Colombe d'Or review by Nicole Allmann
La Colombe d'Or captivates with its rich art history of globally significant guests the list of whom gives you instant chills. Te establishment opened in 1920 as a café, but soon expanded into a guest house due to its popularity. At first it had only 3 rooms, and thanks to the then owner Paul’s love for art, the place became a meeting point for famous painters.

La Colombe d'Or captivates with its rich art history of globally significant guests the list of whom gives you instant chills. Te establishment opened in 1920 as a café, but soon expanded into a guest house due to its popularity. At first it had only 3 rooms, and thanks to the then owner Paul’s love for art, the place became a meeting point for famous painters. Artists often used to pay for accommodation and meals with their own paintings, so Paul grew a collection. It is now displayed in the dining area. Picasso, Magritte, Jacques Prevert, Serge Reggiani and Yves Montand are just dome of the famous names who used to love La Colombe d'Or.

 

Even nowadays you can spot celebrities dining and feeling cool amidst all the artwork, but you will feel appreciated as a guest because they won’t be enjoying better treatment than you – all guests are treated as VIPs, and that’s another strong selling point. Other aspects of the hotel are also affirmative. Rooms are impeccable with sunnier views over the town and rear rooms with a mountain view. The immediate surroundings are far from desolate, just cross the street to reach a bistro and the local shops.

WorldTop7 Facts
  • Romantic and very special hotel with 13 rooms and 12 suites with many stories to tell, namely of the intellectual and artistic elite who have loved it since 1920

    Located just out of Saint-Paul de Vence, 20 minutes from Nice and even a bit less from Nice airport

    Not a family oriented place, too arty and too cool. You may bring the kids but they will most likely get bored, even though they are welcome.

    The pool might be fun for kids, but most importantly it is well separated from the restaurant so you keep your privacy
