For cinema fans, the French Riviera is best enjoyed from a hotel with a view. From Cannes to Monaco, you can discover hotels with great views over the breathtaking vistas that provided the beautiful backdrops for films from "An Affair to Remember" (1957) to "Rebecca" (1997). It was while Grace Kelly was filming Alfred Hitchcock's "To Catch A Thief" (1955) in locations including Nice and Cannes that she met her future husband, eventually becoming Princess Grace of Monaco. Choosing a hotel with a view in the Mediterranean's glitziest cities will transport you back to an golden era of film stars and Riviera glamour.
Our 5-star luxury hotels allow you to enjoy that Hollywood lifestyle, from sparkling infinity pools to resident DJs and chic restaurants. Whether you're sun-worshipping on a private beach in Eze or people-watching at the Saint-Tropez Marina, our hotels with sea views on the French Riviera combine luxurious resorts with peaceful, private retreats. Enjoy swimming pools, gardens and al fresco dining. Many of our 5 star luxury hotels have in-house spas and wellness centres, balancing ancient rituals like hammam steam and massage, with modern gym facilities and prestigious treatments from the latest beauty brands.
Hollywood comes to the French Riviera each summer for the Cannes Film Festival. Our hotels in Cannes are not simply exquisite hotels with great views, but also at the heart of the world's most stylish cinema festival. Choose a hotel in Cannes and enjoy exploring the legendary La Croisette, two kilometres of Mediterranean coastline graced by some of the world's most famous hotels, iconic designers, and celebrated restaurants. Beyond the yachts and celebrity-spotting, Cannes' historic quarter, Le Suquet, abounds in old-fashioned French charm. Relax with a game of pétanque in the quiet squares, or buy traditional delicacies at Marché Forville, a few cobbled streets from the old port.
Beyond the sparkling glamour of cities like Cannes and Nice, it's worth remembering that some of the most romantic hotels on the French Riviera can be found in unspoilt little paradises like Eze or Cassis. Explore the Calanques, the stunning white limestone cliffs stretching from Marseille to La Ciotat, or treat yourself by booking a hotel with the best views of the Lérins islands, with their white beaches, eucalyptus groves, and ancient monasteries. Our romantic hotels overlook the sparkling Mediterranean, giving you easy access to historic landmarks like the Jardin d'Eze, with its ruined castle and medieval stone cottages.
