THE STORY: Already proprietors of a few establishments in the Alps, the Hotels d’en Haut chain just bought a place along the Mediterranean Coast. And they entrusted Festen – a young interior design duo who have already proven their chops in Pigalle – to take care of the décor at Les Roches Rouges. With sea views from most of the property, the extremely luminous bedrooms are deliciously minimalist. There’s not much to describe except for the blue, yellow or ochre tones, some wooden furniture, plus a few books and objects placed here and there. As a bonus, the hotel boasts multiple restaurants and bars, a magnificent Mediterranean garden, two outdoor pools, a spa and client services like deep-sea fishing or lessons on how to play pétanque. Starting at €160 a night for double rooms.
