This brand-new hotel on the French Riviera opened early May 2018 and is one of our top picks for a European break. Set on the glorious Provencal coast between Saint Tropez and Cannes, this hotel boasts barefoot luxury, having been designed by renowned architecture firm Festen over the last few years to transform into nautical-modernist lines that overlook the Mediterranean Sea.
With a stunning natural seawater swimming pool, diving and snorkelling to keep you busy, you can also eat your way through the two restaurants and three bars on the property (La Cabane, La Terrace and the Beach Bar). The real bonus being that you are in total seclusion with the luxury of having the South of France on your doorstep; Saint-Raphael is teeming with activities (most of them sea-focussed) and is a 10-minute drive away from exploring the French Riviera and Agay is 5-minutes away. The hotel also has a boat that leaves from Saint-Raphael to go to St Tropez which is an hour and 15 minutes (costing approx. 25 EUR each way) and you can also get the train to Cannes.
There are 9 classic rooms and 13 superior rooms, all of which boast sea views from their balconies. Choose between sea or garden views from the Deluxe rooms and Suites. All decorated in the colours of the French Riviera; red, azure blue and pure white. If you can tear yourself away from your spacious sea-facing room, you can busy yourself with some yoga, hiking and fishing. If you’re feeling a little less energetic, ping pong might be more up your street.
