Overlooking the Mediterranean just outside Saint-Raphaël in the Var, this 50-room hotel underwent a top-to-bottom makeover in 2017 that respected its late-1950s modernist style but updated it with a beach-shack chic. This includes polished cement floors, wool throw rugs and lithographs on white-painted walls. Most rooms include private balconies with sea views, and suites come with both showers and soaking tubs. Dining options are highlighted by La Terrasse, which received its first Michelin star in 2019. Additionally, the beachside La Plage specializes in updated Provençal fare that emphasizes locally sourced seafood and vegetables. A large natural saltwater swimming pool and a heated lap pool are both surrounded by sun loungers. Amenities include a small Esthederm spa and an open-air cinema. Cooking classes, sailing, paddleboarding, snorkeling and kayaking can be arranged. The property is closed from mid-October to mid-May.
