I strongly suggest the Shiseido Spa at Le Mas Candille in Mougins.


Their facial treatment is heavenly. Arguably the best I have ever had.

Avoid Marina Baie des Anges like the plague!

I went at the end of last year and was amazed that the place was still legally open. The pools were missing tiles, the pool steps were rusty, the sauna was black with mould, everything was filthy - really filthy. The back of the plastic pool chairs were held together with plastic strips which meant that everytime you leant back your skin was pinched. When I cut my foot open on a rusty metal nail in one of pools I finally left and vowed never to return.

It's cheap but really should not be open. Hygiene standards are nil and the staff are so understandably unmotivated that the service is shoddy. It was a very bad experience all together so beware, you have been warned!

Hip day spa in Nice is really good - it's holistic and they do hair, body and makeup. Was voted Best City Spa by Wallpaper mag last year. Had a couple of treatments and they were amazing - husband bought me a gift certificate for Christmas - nice man!

Thanks for that info all, will give the one that you mentioned StGeorge a try, but dont expect me to go in any sort of high heels etc. I'll be leaving those behind as the pedicure is needed after all the nights out in those damn high heels!

Will let you know how it all goes.

You mean the one where high heels and garters are obligatory ? I was there the other night, but found the jacuzzi too crowded !!

Apparently there's a new one at the bottom of the Martinez in Canness - could be worth checking it out.

And quite right too - pamper yourself !! After the boyfriend's shocking trauma with the most unhelpful hire van Company , take yourself in hand and seriously spoil yourself in the Baie Des Anges Spa and leave all the blues behind you !!stgeorge
