THE STORY: In a former 17th-century monastery, you’ll now find the Hôtel du Couvent! This divine transformation was conducted by Valéry Grégo, the founder of the British-based Perseus group, who runs this sublime establishment boasting five stars in the Vieux-Nice neighborhood. Here, the habit does not make the monk: it’s an extraordinary space, which stands up to the ambition of her architect brother, Louis-Antoine Grégo, offering 88 rooms, three pools, an equal number of restaurants, plus Roman baths, a farmers’ market on Saturday mornings, a bakery, an herbalist shop and even a library that’s open to the public. The former nuns’ quarters? They’ve been turned into some incredibly chic accommodations, some of which come equipped with their own private gardens, others boasting priceless views of the city and the Mediterranean Sea, while others stretch out for over 150 m2, complete with large kitchens featuring Lacanche ranges and dining rooms… All that, in addition to the monastic tranquility of the space. Double rooms starting at €300 a night (€500 for June to September).

Fragonard soap, Azzi Glasser vetiver, amber and wormwood scented shampoo and body wash.
BREAKFAST: Breakfast for €48, including, among other things, hot drinks, fruit juice and fresh fruit, bread and granola from the convent, yogurt, cheeses, freshly made eggs… and prepared dishes also available à la carte – sweet orange blossom omelets (€17), fontainebleau and flower jelly (€15), avocado from Menton seasoned with olive oil and fleur de sel (€16).
LITTLE LUXURY: Indulge in one of the incredible treatments offered in the hotel’s Roman baths.
