This hotel in the Grand Corniche of Nice was recommended to us by a fellow cyclist. The rooms are beautifully turned out and there are specatular views from rooms and panoramic restaurant. It's a two-star hotel with 11 rooms and – unusually in this part of the Cote d'Azur – the spectacular views from here are actually affordable. The owners, Valerie and Gino, tell us there is a garage for storing more than four bikes. If you're in a group of fewer than 4, the bikes can be stored safely on the private terraces.
