Nina, Monique et Christoph, the souls of la vie en rose
Bright colours and artistic decoration create the special atmosphere of our B&B. It is an inspiring place which invites you to dream and explore new ideas. It's a perfect envoronment to just relax as well.
Monique is a journalist and a tour guide in Basel and in the french part of Switzerland. She loves to stay in exciting places and to discover new challenges. Christoph has worked for many years as a journalist and as a consultant of personal communication and public relations. He is retired now and likes care for our guests and to manage our B&B. Nina is a young artist and Moniques daughter. Since 2020 she is taking care of "la vie en rose".
We are located in a very living area of Basel which is called Kleinbasel (Little Basel). We ar in the middle of an international and multicultural neighbourhood with a vatiety of boutiques, cafés, and cosy restaurants. You can reach the Rhine in a few steps and enjoy a scenic view of the old town while walking or jogging along the river. In summer time hundreds of people like to swim in the Rhine or to have a drink or a picnic at sunset.
