Art Collection - Hotel Negresco, Nice, France June 30 2014, 0 Comments

While driving through Cote D'Azur last month, Kevin and I chanced upon a bumper deal that resulted in a night's stay at the Hotel Negresco on the Nice sea front. This 5 star hotel is famed for it's eclectic art collection which permeates every corner of the grand art deco building.

Wondering through the loosely themed floors (Oriental, African, Fashion, Imperial France, etc) we immediately got snapping….alas armed only with a tiny camera.

See all the photos on our Pinterest board.

Get a feel of the experience and maybe chance upon a deal yourself. We used hotelbookings.com

Other artistic delights in the region included Museé Matisse and the much recommended Fondacion Maeght in Antibes, where architecture, modern art and the great outdoors combine in perfect harmony.
