The board of directors and all of the employees of the Negresco Hotel in Nice, France, are extremely sad to announce the passing of Jeanne Augier, Chief Executive Officer, on January 7, 2019, in her 96th year.

Owner of the Hotel since 1957, Madame Augier worked to revive the hotel and then to extend its influence throughout France and the world. With her husband, Paul Augier, she made the Negresco an incredible Palace, a luxury establishment which reflects her own personality, it is recognized worldwide and is the last great independent hotel in France.

A passionate collector, she collected over 6,000 works of art and pieces of furniture covering 5 centuries of French history, paying a majestic tribute to French talent.

A relentless advocate of the disabled, people in difficulty and animal rights, she generously worked to ease their suffering. To continue her work, the board of directors and all of the employees intend to perpetuate the creative, free and independent spirit of a great Lady who leaves to the city of Nice an emblem of French “art de vivre.”

A mourning period of one month will be respected, symbolized by flying the flags at half-mast at the Negresco Hotel. The board of directors and the provisional administration appointed in 2013 will continue their mission, insuring the management of the Hotel.
