The French Riviera
The destination of everyone's dreams!
The Côte d'Azur, the famous French Riviera whose art of living is the envy of all, stretches from Bandol in the Var to Menton in the Alpes-Maritimes.
Between the turquoise waters of the sea, the wild garrigues and the mountains, from the Mediterranean shores between Saint-Tropez and Monaco, from the Provençal ranges to the Alpine massifs of the Mercantour, the Côte d'Azur is a land of contrasting landscapes from its internationally renowned cities of Nice and Cannes! The beauty of its beaches and the luxury of its palaces, the influence of its festivals and the fame of its artists form a harmonious balance with the forests and green valleys of the mountains of the high country, the red roofs of the old perched villages and the yellow of the mimosas in bloom...
Welcome to the film capital of the world! Cannes is famous for its sandy beaches, restaurants and luxury shops, but it also has a peaceful and well-preserved historic district called Le Suquet. In these narrow streets, accessible by stairs, you can admire typical old houses.
Cannes is world famous for its festival and the red carpet walk up the Palais des Festivals. Walk in the footsteps of celebrities as you stroll along the garden-lined Croisette. In the shade of the pines and palms, contemplate the grand palaces that enjoy the view of the sea. Many of these sumptuous hotels date from the Belle Époque and are architectural treasures.
Offshore, the Lérins Islands invite you to dive into history.
Mandelieu-La Napoule is blessed with a beautiful natural environment in the heart of its town. It is crossed by the navigable river Siagne and is overlooked by the Massif de l'Estérel, the Massif du Tanneron and the Mont San Peyre which are reflected on the Gulf of La Napoule.
Mandelieu is of course 3 km of coastline with fine sandy beaches for lazing around or water sports. Its castle is also a must. Overlooking the sea, it houses the cultural heritage of Marie and Henry Clews, American artists who literally fell in love with the 11th century castle. Today, you can visit the museum and garden and regularly see the work of the guests of the Artists' Residence.
Paradise lagoons do not only exist at the end of the world. Off the coast of the bay of Cannes, protected lands are revealed: the islands of Lérins with the luxuriant Ile Sainte-Marguerite and the silent Ile Saint-Honorat which is a classified jewel, preserved by the monks of the Abbey of Lérins. On an area of 40 hectares, you can alternate the joys of the sea and its turquoise waters with visits to historical monuments. You can also take advantage of this unique area to discover a place that has been producing great wines and world-renowned liqueurs for centuries.
Sainte-Marguerite Island is the larger of the two Lérins Islands, opposite Cannes. It was used as a prison for the famous man in the iron mask, who stayed there for 11 years.
The Esterel opens up on the border between the Var and the Alpes-Maritimes. From the Dramont semaphore to the Calanque de Maupas, there are sumptuous coves, deserted most of the time, where the red rock and its fine garrigue plunge abruptly into the crystal clear turquoise water. The largest protected marine area in France is at Cap Roux.
Along the unmissable Corniche d'Or and its 36 kilometres of coastline between Saint-Raphaël and Mandelieu, no less than 30 beaches and small coves await you.
The Estérel massif covers 32,000 hectares of which 14,000 are classified as Natura 2000.
In Grasse, the world capital of perfume since the 17th century, you can breathe deeply, as the air quality in this green setting, between mountains and forests, is exceptional. This perched village in the Alpes-Maritimes is a place of holiday and rest, having been classified as a "Ville d'Art et d'Histoire".
Grasse has preserved its heritage and its flower crops, which are used to produce eau de toilette and soap. A visit to the International Perfumery Museum will allow you to learn more about the history of perfume. You will appreciate the incredible collection representing all aspects of perfumery, such as its industry, the traditions observed throughout the world or its marketing.
The hotel has a partnership with Fragonard: 10 % discount on the shop.
Located just after Nice, on the way to Menton, Eze stretches along the sea from Cap Roux to the tip of Cabuel. Its territory is not limited to the seaside, by going up the middle cornice, you will discover Èze-Village, one of the most beautiful sites of the French Riviera.
This tourist mecca is one of the most picturesque villages in the Alpes-Maritimes department. Indeed, isolated in the shape of an eagle's nest on a hillock overlooking the sea from 427 m, it is the very type of village perched in an absolutely magical setting. It has long attracted men of letters, artists and craftsmen.
A glamorous destination on the Côte d'Azur par excellence, Monte Carlo offers an unmissable escape! There are few timeless places where, as soon as you cross the border, a magical universe opens up to you. Monaco, a rock jealously guarded by the Grimaldi family since the 13th century, has seen all its luxury built by the arrival of the world's greatest fortunes.
Its particular topography and its unusual architecture make Monaco an exceptional destination. Among the highlights of your visit: Monte Carlo and its famous casino, the Exotic Garden, the Rock, the beating heart of the Principality and its Prince's Palace or the Oceanographic Museum.
