Hotel Amour Nice

…born on the “Stay At Home” era, Hotel Amour Nice, can definitely be the first place you pick to visit after lock-down for its homey feel to it WITH the bonus of the French Riviera ambiance.
Remember! This is not a concept hotel neither a boutique hotel done up by hip designers, Amour is an artists’ hotel that feels like a nostalgic love affair in a bygone, golden era…

 

 

Having conquered Paris by opening the Hotel Amour and the
Grand Amour, Emmanuel Delavenne, André Saraiva and Thierry
Costes turned to Nice to create their third establishment. As
with its predecessors, the atmosphere is truly unique. No
television or telephones in the rooms. People come for the
experience. For a few nights, they enjoy a trip to “the most
elegant town on the Riviera” according to Emmanuel. Welcome to
the Hotel Amour Nice and its own private beach: L’Amour à la
plage.
This new space signed Amour is resolutely a part of the local
culture of Nice and its lifestyle. The Amour family chose to
settle in the Fleurs district, near the Negresco and Niki de
Saint Phalle’s pop sculptures. Just a few streets away, the
private beach stretches out against a backdrop of azure blue’s
shades.

HOTEL

Everyone feels at home at the Hotel Amour in Nice. The owners
follow their heart and pick out the furniture on their
travels. The mixture is eclectic: layout, materials, fabrics,
collectors’ items, books… Each room is unique and arranged
with an eye for detail: bright colours, luxury bed linen, soft
lighting, and pink marble bathroom with Italian taps… There
is a musical welcome as soon as you push open the door of your
room. Bookcases dotted here and there invite you to savour the
moment and marvel at how sweet life can be.

The Hotel Amour Nice has 38 rooms including two suites with
outdoor shower on the adjacent patio and a view over the
rooftops.

Most of all, it is a place where people gather, with a bar,
restaurant, rooftop with swimming pool and a patio. Around
this central atrium of the hotel, these areas are laid out,
mingle and communicate. The entrance hall is a bar, the bar is
a restaurant, the restaurant is a lounge. You do as you
please, wherever you please.
At the Hotel Amour, the guests are tourists, artists,
musicians, actors, friends… From New-York or Berlin, André’s
artist friends set up their summer residence.
Today, on a trip to Nice, you can wander round the flea market
on the Cours Saleya. Explore the rich architecture of the
town, a mixture of French and Italian, neo-classic, baroque
and art-deco. Drive through the villages in the hills behind
the coast. Visit the Villa Arson School and art centre,
flagship of the neo-Brutalism style. The town is everywhere
steeped in the legacy of Matisse, César, Yves Klein…

La Plage – The Beach

A few streets from the hotel is the private beach: L’Amour à
la plage. A pink neon AMOUR sign welcomes you as you arrive.
Then blue takes over, against a background of sea, sky and
parasols.
Here too, there is carefully chosen furniture, a
bougainvillea, a restaurant, deckchairs and pebbles smoother
than anywhere else. Local gourmet traditions are given pride
of place – Niçoise salad, marinated bell peppers, pissaladière
(anchovy, cheese and onion tart), Pan Bagnat… A menu
reminiscent of the “delicatessen” and plain fare, based on
local produce picked daily. The dishes have a southern accent
and those flavours that trigger an emotion, a souvenir, like a
holiday romance. And so, you have a swim, read a book, linger
over lunch, sip a cocktail. Then start all over again…
