Sea, Sun & Palms - the Côte d'Azur

To enjoy a few more late summer days, a long weekend on the Côte d'Azur is a good idea. The summer heat is over, the beaches are no longer so crowded. Exciting new hotel concepts are attracting design-savvy vacationers. At the luxury hotel Maybourne Riviera near Roquebrune-Cap Martin, guests can spend the whole day lounging by the pool with a view of the Mediterranean. The new property of the London-based Maybourne Group (Claridge's, Connaught, The Berkeley) is an architectural highlight and the most spectacular new hotel on the French south coast. The Hotel Belle Plage in Cannes, a former beach hotel from the 1930s, blends perfectly into its surroundings with its flowing lines. The rooms are all blue and sand. Parisian designer Raphael Navot has been commissioned for the entire interior design. In Saint-Tropez, Hotel La Tartane evokes the carefree times of the Roaring Twenties with style and elegance. Like a Provençal village, it is surrounded by a Mediterranean garden full of citrus plants. Rooms are spread over five small houses, all named after famous visitors to the French Riviera.
