Hotels in Nice, Marseille + The Côte d'Azur
After buying Le Manoir de L’Etang from the family who had owned it for more than 50 years, Camilla Richards gave it a modern update, filling the ivy-covered Côte d'Azur villa with eclectic touches.
This sumptuous Belle Époque original was built in 1897 with half-moon balconies and caryatid columns and then refurbished in 2001 as the city’s first four-star boutique hotel.
Complex of stone buildings and a Michelin 2-starred restaurant set on a cliff above the Mediterranean.
After their Le Cavendish relaunch, Guy and Christine Welter transformed this lovely 1884 villa in central Cannes into 11 beautifully appointed apartment suites with four-star luxuries. The eclectic styling mixes postmodern and Belle Époque, all elegant lines and rich colors.
A monument to the endearingly loopy vision of pastis magnate Paul Ricard (who built it in 1962), the 19-room Le Delos was recently reimagined by British designer Carolyn Quartermaine, who brought cohesion to the eccentric mix.
One of the more affordable hotels in St.-Tropez, “Le Sube” is situated directly on the Vieux Port above the Café de Paris. The exterior is typical of Provençal by-the-sea architecture, with smooth stucco walls, wooden shutters, and metal balustrades.
