If it’s an ultra-luxe experience you’re looking for, rest assured the Côte d’Azur is a great choice. In fact, we think it’s one of the grandest holiday destinations in the world. 

You haven’t experienced the Côte d’Azur properly if you’ve not lapped up the luxury across the many glitzy towns like Cannes, Saint-Tropez and Nice. You’ll rest your head in a five-star suite, unwind at award-winning resort spas, and dip your toes in the Mediterranean Sea on one of many sandy beaches.

Foodies will be heaven too, with an endless array of world-class Michelin-star restaurants to tickle your fancy.

We’ll help you experience Côte d’Azur the only way we know how, with sophisticated and standout opportunities across the best five-star resorts and hotels.
We hear the champagne popping as we speak!

Score a hole-in-one at Terre Blanche

Nestled nicely in the Cannes countryside, Terre Blache is an all-in-one-place type of resort that has more than enough R&R options to keep you entertained for your whole stay, none more exciting than the golfing opportunities.

Keen golfers will be in their absolute element at this resort, with not just one award-winning golf course to play on, but two!

Designed by world-renowned architect Dave Thomas, these courses will impress even the most experienced golfers – with specialist shoes to rent, TaylorMade clubs to play with, and caddie service saving you the aches and pains of carrying clubs around yourself.

And once the round’s over, you can celebrate your hole-in-one with a celebratory drink at the luxury clubhouse or head to dinner at one of the five resort restaurants.

Charter a luxury private yacht at Hotel Saint Amour - La Tartane

Next on our list of the best experiences in Côte d’Azur comes with Saint-Tropez’s Hotel Saint Amour - La Tartane. Sure, the hotel grounds themselves are worth booking a stay for – but it’s the opportunity to charter your very own private yacht that really stands out.

If you want to fork out for this ultimate luxury experience, it’ll start with you being welcomed on board the multi-million-pound Chato yacht by staff who will look after you for the whole cruise.

If you opt for a multi-day excursion, you’ll spend your days sailing the seas that surround the beautiful islands of Corsica, Capi and Porto Cervo. And by night, you’ll be cooked a meal by a private chef and eat in the grand dining room. This is the absolute ultimate VIP experience in the Côte d’Azur.

Dine like kings and queens at Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo

Upscale glamour is what Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo is best known for, especially with its five exciting dining options including the Michelin-star Pavyllon Monte-Carlo, a restaurant by Yannick Alléno.

At this signature restaurant, you’ll experience fine dining like you’ve never experienced before. Aiming to rewrite the rulebook on gastronomic cooking with sharing and modernity.

Pavyllon Monte-Carlo is a restaurant driven by the basics of good simple cooking, but with a gourmet twist to excite the senses. Sometimes you don’t need to reinvent the wheel to truly impress.

Even the hotel’s more casual eateries are wonderful like Le Limùn: a chic and relaxed lounge where you can grab a quick bite to eat before heading out exploring Monaco for the day.

Join the clubs of Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo

Monte-Carlo is known for its swanky upmarket vibes, and Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo is no exception. Not only will you have your own lavish suite to rest in at night, but by day you'll also have exclusive access to the leisure and recreation facilities of Monte-Carlo Beach Club, Monte-Carlo Country Club, and Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo (a 75,000-square foot spa directly connected to the hotel). 

So, when you’re done unwinding in the swimming pool or rejuvenating with a facial, head to the Country Club for an afternoon of sports like golf, snooker, tennis, squash and so much more. Or for less active souls, rent a private cabin down at the Beach Club soaking up the summer rays. And don’t worry about travel expenses, a shuttle bus from the hotel to the club runs multiple times a day. You basically have the whole of Monte Carlo’s R&R options right at your fingertips.
