The Petit Palais is one of those charming hotels that carefully guards its secrets. Today a 4-star boutique hotel with only 25 keys, the place has the gift of taking its guests to a dream break.
Once upon a time in 1924, a certain Madame Thomas, who approached the architects Victor Martin and Charles Palmero to build her a villa in the Carabacel Park. With one facade on avenue Emile Biekert, the other on avenue du Bois, this villa consisted of two large apartments.
The owner immediately settled in comfortably on the ground floor and pleasant garden level with her son and his “miss” housekeeper; Was Madame Thomas an emancipated upper-class woman, a wealthy muse, a refined rentier attracted by the winter socialities of Nice?
We can only leave it its mysteries...
