A UNIQUE AND TIMELESS LEGEND

Just like a happy surprise which is constantly renewed, for over a century the Negresco has been writing the legend of Nice and the French Riviera on a daily basis.
The story began in 1913.
On 8 January, the Negresco opened its doors. The hotel, designed by Henri Negrescu, immediately drew the attention of the international Jet Set. Artists, politicians and royalty were numerous to have signed the guest book …

High society and chic evenings, the myth was perpetuated with Jeanne Augier who purchased the Negresco in 1957. She continued the incredible story of the Palace. The painter Dali, Princess Grace of Monaco, the Beatles, Louis Armstrong, Elton John... she personally greeted celebrities and started a collection of valuable artwork and furniture. Today, it is not rare to run into a celebrity enjoying a discreet summer stopover on the terrace at 37 Promenade des Anglais.
