CLOSED ANNUALLY: Open all year round

THE STORY: The former Hôtel Richelieu – a legendary gem from the 1930s on the Corniche du Président-John-Fitzgerald-Kennedy, overhanging the Catalans beach ­– has been given a successful makeover! Bought by Frédéric Biousse and Guillaume Foucher (who already own the Domaine de Fontenille in the Luberon), and totally restructured by a Marseille-based architect, Yvann Pluskwa, it now goes by the name of Les Bords de Mer and fully embraces its Art Deco look and old-fashioned charm. Facing the Mediterranean, the bedrooms (white walls, light wood, pastel tones) are graced with exceptional luminosity from the sea. Double rooms starting at €220.

TOILETRIES: Susanne Kaufmann Skincare soap, shampoo, body wash and body lotion.
INTERNET: Wifi (free)
BREAKFAST: €28, with hot drinks, bread, viennoiseries, fruit salad, fruit and detox juices, various cheeses, charcuterie, cereals…
MINI-BAR: Yes, with free mineral waters, sodas and fruit juices.
LITTLE LUXURY: Splashing around in the rooftop pool, with views of the Grande Bleue.
