High-end luxury isn’t too hard to come by in Côte d’Azur. Come summer, the miles and miles of glitzy coastline come alive with bustling promenades, yacht-filled harbours, and award-winning beachfront restaurants. It’s a destination that simply oozes class and opulence.

If you’re not dining on Michelin-standard French cuisine, you’ll be hopping onboard a private yacht. The possibilities for experiencing a life of luxury are truly endless across the most popular towns of Saint-Tropez, Nice, or Cannes – especially when there’s such an exciting array of high-end hotels you can book a stay in.

It’s time to explore your best options for the ultimate luxury holiday in Côte d’Azur…

Luxury is dialled up the max at La Réserve Ramatuelle Hotel, Spa & Villa

For that quintessential French Riviera getaway, we recommend booking a stay at La Réserve Ramatuelle Hotel, Spa & Villas. Affluent sun-seekers will fit right in at this resort, whether you’re looking for a short and sweet stay in a swanky hotel suite or a longer stopover in the privacy of your own ultra luxury Côte d’Azur villa. 

Located just a short drive away from the heart of Saint-Tropez, here you can spend your days relaxing around the peaceful swimming pool or browsing the spa’s menu of massages, facials, and body treatments. 

For dinner, make sure you book a table at La Voile, the resort’s signature restaurant specialising in bright and fresh Mediterranean flavours. Pretty much everything served on your plate will be ingredients sourced from local farms, and it’ll all be washed down with a bottle of their carefully selected fine wine.

A day in French paradise doesn’t come much more luxurious than this!

Dine like VIPs at Le Grand Hotel Cannes

It’s not just the lavish 1960s-inspired interior design that makes Le Grand Hotel Cannes feel so ultra-luxurious, it’s also the hotel’s restaurant offerings that make your stay so special, especially if you’re big foodies like us here at Winged Boots. 

For a sunny al fresco lunch, head to La Plage 45: a casual beach club offering all your typical holiday favourites but with a classy twist, including flame-grilled burgers and family-sized bowls of pasta.

Right before dinner, grab a delicious cocktail at Le Cercle, a terrace bar that comes to life after sunset with a live piano player. Then for the main event, book a table at Le Park 45, the hotel’s Michelin-star fine dining restaurant specialising in traditional Mediterranean cuisine that will knock your socks off.

Plus, if it’s a superb locale you’re after, you’ll be pleased to know the hotel’s biggest draw is its sought-after spot just metres from La Croisette, Cannes’ famous promenade boasting plenty of glamorous bars, restaurants, and designer shops. What more could you want from your luxury holiday in Côte d’Azur?

Experience the high-life at La Chévre D'Or

Sure the views from your deluxe suite at La Chévre D'Or are breath-taking, but it’s the resort’s top luxury experiences and excursions that will blow you away. So, once you’re done admiring the vistas of the tranquil Mediterranean Sea, head to the concierge desk to book yourself in for something truly memorable. 

Firstly, there’s the hotel’s sublime spa offering a myriad of luxury therapies that drift you away into a full state of serenity.

For something a little more adrenaline-fueled, you can take an action-packed helicopter ride touring the Côte d'Azur’s seascape. You’ll get an unbeatable birds-eye-view of the region's close-by towns and cities like St. Tropez, Nice, and St. Agnès.

It’s an experience not for the faint-hearted, but we promise the sky-high scenery will be totally worth it.

Perhaps most exciting though is a chance to charter the resort’s private yacht. This is the perfect type of experience for big celebrations and special occasions. Why not bring your closest friends and family onboard and treat them to champagne and caviar, darling…

Live like royalty at Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo

Next on our list of ultra luxury holidays in Côte d'Azur is a stay at the one and only Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo. This is five-star glamour at its very best. 

For the ultimate VIP experience, we recommend the 3,552ft2 Three-Bedroom Princely Diamond Suite. With a name like that you expect regal excellence, right?
Well, that’s precisely what you get. You’ll sleep in a plush king-sized bed and lounge in the sea-view living room.

You also have your own personal butler waiting in the wings tending to your every need, and a bougie limousine service taking you anywhere you desire in and around Monte Carlo.

And when you’re done living it up in the casinos and cocktail bars, head back to the hotel for dinner at Le Vistamar and Terrace, a world-renowned Michelin-star restaurant serving up a menu of gourmet delights inspired by the popular French proverb of, “Take a fish, a vegetable, and cook it to perfection”.

Pamper yourself at La Bastide de Saint-Tropez

Lastly, we have La Bastide de Saint-Tropez. There are so many reasons why this hotel is one of our top choices for ultra luxury accommodation in Côte d'Azur, none more special than the hotels’ abundance of in-house R&R options – and we’re not just talking about relaxing poolside in the sun (although that sounds wonderful too).

For the ultimate chill-out, book the Hydrations of the Lagoons facial at The SPA by Carita. It reverses jet lag and brings any sun-damaged skin back to life.

If the spa’s not really your thing, more active souls might enjoy an Aquabike personal training session to get your blood pumping. And after your workout, you’ve earned a re-energising lunch at The BBQ of La Bastide – stone baked pizza and a refreshing cocktail is calling your name…

For those willing to truly splash out, the hotel also has a private yacht to rent. You’ll sail the local seas stopping off at sandy beaches by day and tuck into a three-course meal cooked by an onboard chef by night. That's the life we all dream of!

Ultra luxury holidays in Côte d’Azur FAQs

How many days is enough for a luxury holiday in Côte d’Azur?

As it is with any holiday, the more days you spend in the Côte d’Azur, the better. It’s best to give yourself plenty of time to explore the sights of the local area and make the most of your hotel’s facilities.

Our Côte d’Azur holiday packages come as three, five, or seven-night stays. We always recommend a full week to truly relax and have time to do different things, but if your expenses are limited, a long weekend away is perfectly enough too. It all depends on the nature of your trip.

What is the most luxurious destination in Côte d’Azur?

So many of the towns and cities in the Côte d’Azur offer top-end, ultra-glam holiday experiences, from Nice to Cannes to Saint-Jean Cap Ferrat. However, we here at Winged Boots think the region's most luxurious destination is Saint-Tropez. In fact, it’s one of the most luxurious destinations in the world. 

The swanky peninsula town offers a magnificent blend of picturesque, cobbled streets, exclusive beach resorts, and glitzy restaurants and bars.

A typical day in Saint-Tropez involves browsing around high-end designer boutiques in the afternoon and sipping margaritas at a cocktail bar in the evening while watching yachts dock in the harbour. 

Have you settled on one of our five-star hotels and resorts? If so, speak to one of our travel managers to book your luxury holiday to France. Or if you want to save some of your budget for a splash-out in the designer stores, check out our luxury French holiday offers first. 

If it's a longer pre-planned trip you’re after, you can tour France in luxury & style with one of our exclusive itineraries. All flights, accommodation, and excursions are included!
