- Free afternoon snacks for guests in the library
Named after 18th-century navigator and explorer Louis Antoine de Bougainville, Villa Bougainville is a boutique hotel in the centre of Nice. It is in the Quartier des Musiciens, an elegant residential area near the train station and a 15-minute walk from the beach.
Nice's Old Town, where you’ll find the food and flower market at the "joyous, thriving" Cours Saleya (Lonely Planet), is 20 minutes' walk away. The hotel is 10 minutes' walk from Musée Massena, a museum of art and history, and the Marc Chagall museum and the Modern and Contemporary Art Museum are both within a 25-minute walk.
The hotel serves a continental buffet breakfast from 7-10:30am in the breakfast room. There's also a library for guests. This cosy spot has leather armchairs and a business nook with internet access. Free afternoon treats, such as chocolate, fruit and coffee, are laid on here from 2-7pm, daily.
Rooms are on the small side, but are bright and cheery. They have free Wi-Fi, and are decorated with colonial-style furniture and botanical prints.
