There’s nothing quite like a holiday on the Cote d’Azure

Whether you’re taking a weekend break to the sun or planning to relax with Mediterranean waves lapping at your feet for two weeks, the south of France is surely unbeatable. And while you’re there you want to be treated like a VIP. Here are our best hotels to live in luxury on the French Riviera.

There is nothing in the world like the views from the Hotel Cap Estel. Built on the cliffs of the Pointe de Cabuel overlooking the Med with a private beach and infinity pool, this is as glamorous as it gets.

The hotel is a palace in its own right, and the rooms are huge and incredibly comfortable. It must be the best place to sit with a martini and let the world pass you by.

La Réserve de Beaulieu Hôtel & Spa is a romantic resort in Beaulieu-sur-Mer on the very outskirts of Nice. It serves some of the best food in the region, and you can receive a massage in their very own hammam. The rooms are decorated in opulent French style and offer panoramic views.

L’Oasis

For something more modern, try L’Oasis between Frejus and Saint Raphael, just a short drive from St. Tropez. It’s a bit cheaper than the Cap Estel and Réserve de Beaulieu and five minutes walk from the beach, but it’s a real hidden gem of la Côte. It’s perfect.

Cap Riviera

Cap Riviera overlooks the beaches of the Corniche d’Azur. Surrounded by roses in full bloom, you can lie on the terrace with your freshly baked croissants in the morning, have a delectable dip in the warm waters before lunch, and then shop all afternoon in St. Tropez. What could be better?

Hotel l’Hotera & Sauna

Could there be anywhere more fashionable and alluring than Cannes? If your answer is yes, then the chic Hotel l’Hotera is the place for you. The beautifully decorated rooms come with a private balcony, and there is nothing quite like this location in the centre of this amazing beachfront city.
