Au Coeur De Saint-Tropez, Saint-Tropez – With only two bedrooms, make sure you book before staying here! It is located only a two-minute walk away from Ponche bay in the heart of Saint-Tropez.
Hôtel Aeva, Cagnes-sur-Mer – Situated between Cannes and Nice, the Hotel Aeva is located on one of the busier roads in the area. This recently redecorated 1930’s road house has a DJ on the weekends and its own on-site bar and restaurant.
Hôtel les Calanques, Les Issambres – This hotel sits along the rocky coastline that offers views across Calanque Creek. The lush gardens of palm and pine trees surround the sheltered cove while the hotel offers 12 guestrooms with its resident-only bistro.
Hôtel Lido Beach, Hyères – Hyères is the setting for this private beach resort and personal favorite of Queen Victoria. Its quieter in contrast to the busy resorts of the Cote d’Azur, and the islands of Port-Cros and Porquerolles are a short boat ride away.
Hôtel Prince De Galle, Menton – Pastel-colored mansions and villas dot the landscape here at the last stop before crossing the Italian border. There is a lively market to take advantage of and a brand new museum to visit when staying here.
Hôtel Victoria, Roquebrune-Cap-Martin – Recently re-opened, Hôtel Victoria is one of the top budget accommodations on the Cote d’Azur. Although the facility does not have a restaurant on site, the hotel bar is extremely lively.
La Jabotte Hôtel, Antibes – This accommodation is housed in three buildings with a total of 12 rooms that surround the garden and covered patio. They put on a great breakfast every morning while beach deckchairs and umbrellas are provided at no charge to the guests.
Les Flots Bleus, Baie d’Anthéor – Despite the American appearance, this is one of the best kept secrets on the French Riviera. The deep blue waters and red stone mountains set the stage for this accommodation.
L’Hirondelle Blanche, Saint-Raphaël – Discrete and quiet best describe this resort located near Cannes and St. Tropez. Some of the 5 recently-renovated guestrooms boast Mediterranean views.
Welcome Hôtel, Villefranche-sur-Mer – Just before arriving in Monte Carlo, this hotel sits on an idyllic spot in the Villefranche harbor. There is a classy wine bar with outdoor seating for views out across the water.
