Hidden in the hills between Cannes and Monte Carlo is a rustic inn displaying a staggering art collection. Paul Roux opened the small establishment in St. Paul during the war and it has thrived ever since.
This crumbling, secluded inn has become one of the world’s most idiosyncratic museums, a bizarre monument to the permeable barrier between life and art – J McAuley
Remarkably and thankfully, the hotel has resisted the kind of transformation many other Côte d’Azur hotels have undertook. La Colombe is one of the few hotels today where reservations must be submitted in writing or made over the phone.
The hotel offers 25 rooms with a rustic feel and the restaurant serves traditional Provençale dishes.
