The former home of Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda, the Hotel Belles-Rives’ bold Art Deco styling and blue striped awnings lend a nostalgic air, reflecting the glamour of that heady era.
Today, time spent on the private beach, balmy evenings in the piano bar and dining by the water’s edge, recreates the chic elegance of those bygone days.
Hôtel Belles Rives has forty-two sunny rooms and suites including the superior Cap room and a private suite with stunning sea views. There’s also a private beach, complete with a water-skiing school, and a relaxed waterfront restaurant which sits on a sprawling white deck.
Whilst staying here, make sure you splash out on at least one dinner at La Passagère, the hotel’s gastronomic restaurant. The southern French cuisine is superb, served on a candle-lit terrace with impossibly romantic sea views.
