Why T. Redding chose Saint Maurice
Nice is the undiscovered city of the riviera. Many tourists fly into Nice and stay elsewhere which is a pity as it is such a beautiful city and has recently had a complete facelift. The city is small and easy to get around with a new tram system which is cheap and convenient to use. It makes a brilliant base and the surrounding areas are easy to get to from the station and bus station. The buses are brilliant as you meander along the cliff tops and don't miss the views.
What makes this Bed And Breakfast unique
The property is set in a quiet secluded private road tucked away from the noise of Nice city. It's a quick walk to the tram which takes you down to the old town and beaches and, for those that like to walk, it's a stroll of 35 - 40 mins down. I often walk the dog down and take the tram back. The local square wants for nothing and you can find just about everything you wish for in the way of traiteurs, bakeries and boulangeries including banks and a pharmacy. A village within a city.

Warm and Cozy Stay
First impression was exceptional. We were two couples that enjoyed the Blue and Green Rooms. They were very comfortable and exceptionally clean. We were conveniently a ten minute walk to the tram that would take you to the Old Town Center and beach. It was a delight meeting our hostess Toni AKA: La Femme Anglaise. She was hospitable, kind, and informative. She prepared plentiful breakfasts every morning. On our departure day she went to the extent to prepare us a basic meal the night before for our sake. We highly recommend everyone to stay with Toni so you too can expeirience Nice hospitality.

This is simply the most wonderful bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in! The breakfasts were the best we've had anywhere in France and were just the right amount to keep us going most of the day whilst sightseeing. Toni has an excellent knowledge of what to do and where to go - she planned our days for us and public transport took us around the Alpes Maritimes at a cost of 1.50 each. We didn't have a car and we found getting around very easy. Toni suggested and booked us into lots of very good restaurants as well - we'd would never have found them without her help. She knew exactly which ones would suit us and we couldn't have done better. The rooms are just fabulous with really comfortable beds and beautiful linens and furnishings - it really is a home from home. A cleaned bedroom and fresh thermoses of iced water greeted us each evening on our return and we enjoyed a glass of the local vino in the garden before heading off for dinner. This was really one of the most enjoyable holidays either of us have ever had and we highly recommend visiting this quiet and hidden away gem.

Die schöne alte Villa liegt ziemlich abseits, dafür ist die Lage sehr ruhig, tolle Umgebung und man hat gar keine Probleme mit dem Parken. Die Gastgeberin Toni war perfekt. Sie hat jeden Morgen ein ausgezeichnetes Frühstück gezaubert und tolle Ausflugstipps gegeben. Wir hatten das liebevoll eingerichtete grüne Zimmer.
Thank you for such a lovely review and I do so hope to see you again at Villa L'Aimée. You are welcome anytime! Best wishes Toni
Spend the day on a sunny Nice beach - these can easily be accessed by tram, an 8 min walk from the villa. All along the beaches one can either hire beds and eat in the beach restaurants or lie on the public areas. Villefranche, Antibes or the Cannes beaches can be accessed easily for the day by train or bus.
Arriving at the airport you take a number 23 bus from outside arrivals at terminal 1. The number 23 bus comes across Nice to the end of our lane. We recommend you don't hire a car unless absolutely necessary. Hiring a car can be done by the day at the station 5 mins on the tram.
Arriving at the station we are a 10 min taxi ride. The villa is 3 stops from the station by tram and then a short bus ride. Contact owner for printed directions.
For day trips to Monaco, Cannes, Antibes, St Paul de Vence or other villages and towns take tram down to the Gares SNCF (railway) or to the old town for buses. Nice has an excellent scheme whereby the public can travel anywhere in the Alpes Martimes for 1.50 Euro per person on a Solo ticket, or for 1 Euro on a Multivoyage ticket, travelling in one direction for 74 minutes. During the summer months there is a boat leaving the port for day trips to St Tropez via Cannes and Îles de Lérins.
Cafés, banks, Spar shop and a pharmacy in the local square are 5 mins walk from the villa.
