Very Good

“What an anticlimax!”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2013

We had booked for three nights, and we had asked to bring our small dog. The owner had been very welcoming in her mails, and offered us a room with a terrace where the dog could stay, giving us the price of 90 Euros per night. She also demanded us to pay 100 Euros in advance.We made the appointment to arrive at 1 p.m on a Saturday in early august. When arriving there it was impossible to find a parking and even more impossible to find the owner. We spent half an hour walking and searching for her, and she had not given us a phone the end somebody else helped us find her. We found our room on our own, and what a room!! A cave with dirty floors and an old sofa for a bed. No terrace, she had given that room to someone else. So no way of keeping the dog there. Two very small towels and dirty sheets. There were ants everywhere, and there was even still garbage outside the door, which was still there when we left. When we finally found the owner (who was eating and looking upset to be bothered) we had to insist to get clean sheets, and we had to sleep with the door closed because of the mosquitos. No window to open. No door to close when going to the bathroom, which was also very close to the "kitchen". Very unhygienic, and I believe illegal. No way to make a cup of coffee...and of course no breakfast offered. On the walls there are signs of being an approved B&B;, so we had expected at least a coffee in the morning. Apart from the view and the potential of the place - and the closeness to Cote d´Azur, it was the worst place we have seen in the area. We left the next morning, happy to be out of there, and found a small, clean and nice hotel in Ventimiglia, very close to the beach and 80 Euros per night including breakfast :-)( Hotel Calypso). We are a bit puzzled of the good reviews of Nicole Durand in here. Are the rooms and the service very different from each other? Does one have to be an artist to be treated well, or is it up to Nicole´s mood?

“Appreciating what you have at home...”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2012

Up in the hills it is cooler than the coast of course.The accommodation is very basic but "adequate".If you are lucky there might be more than one of things like cups,mugs,glasses and with luck knives that can actually cut stuff!Dont expect matching crockery or sets of utensils... and luckily I had my own bottle opener!There was an old saucepan,maybe you would expect a cutting board and basic kitchen things or supplies like salt and pepper,sugar,coffee perhaps to get you started-but there were none. A few assorted old pieces of cutlery.No luxuries whatsoever.If you are lucky there might be a toilet roll or leftover washing up liquid-be prepared to provide absolutely everything yourself to survive-there is no welcome pack-and the shops are down the hill 3 miles away in the town!A car is essential and if you want music or tv bring your own.But then that is not what this location is about.its not a hotel it is -and is equivalent to- student accommodation..I was there to learn a little about stonecarving- which will take more years than I have and being deprived of worldly luxuries at home focused the mind on why I was there in the first place.An experience-unique and more valuable than just a holiday and you meet people on a different level than you would on just a holiday.An experience!

“Fabulous Villa d'Arte”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2012

I really loved the pictures of the villa d'arte on the internet but of course I didn't know what to expect when I got there. I am used to travelling in 5 stars and my standards are quite high but I wanted to do an art course, be near the sea and live in a village so the villa d'arte ticked all the boxes. What I didn't know was that the place was uber special!!! the apartments are so individual. Mine had a lovely terrace where I often ate and painted. Beautiful veiws of the mountains and the sea. Great beaches with 5 star service are only moments away and the food stores are to die for! Nicole Durrand, the proprietor is a most engaging person, charming, extremely talented artist ( but she is very humble, you have to push her to show you her studio etc) She is wonderful hostess too, she can't do enough for her guests. The course of great too and people that came were so much fun, locals from Menton, Nice, Mortola and Monte Carlo. What a blast, I am definitely going back next year.

“Breathtaking views adorable efficient space that was perfect”

Reviewed 11 Jun 2010

I arrived and Nicole met me at the bus. And the adventure began. The little village of Mortola Superior is fantastic. I stayed in the first flat of the little village complex of 30 families. It was charming. Efficient and not extravagant at all. Suited my needs perfectly. There was a tiny terrace with a spectacular vista. I dined here many a day with my ipod music on and relaxing mesmerized by the ocean. It was compact and everything I needed was there. I can not say enough about the stay and Nicole. Fabuloso!!!
