Legendary Palace overlooking the Promenade des Anglais in Nice,Le Negresco undeniably evokes “the art of French living.” Facing the Mediterranean Sea, it is located 5 km from the international airport of Nice Côte d’Azur, and halfway between Cannes and Monte Carlo. This incredible Palace has recently been adorned with the modernity of the Third Millennium, in order to perpetuate its legend throughout the world.

Actors, politicians, writers, singers, artists and royalty, a number of whom have signed the Livre d’or , have enjoyed a holiday on the Riviera to live a little of the myth of Le Negresco. The myth is Jeanne Augier who is also the guardian. Hotel owner and CEO, this great lady – with strongly held beliefs – has devoted her life to preservingand enhancing this unique heritage. A visionary, she was able to meet the expectations of a demanding clientele in search of the exceptional.
