No need to furrow brows over wine pairings, the Sommelier here can be trusted to ensure a perfect concert of flavours.
Amidst century-old olive trees above the shores of Beaulieu-sur-mer, La Réserve de Beaulieu has been a favorite of the Cote d'Azur's most discriminating visitors since 1880. Its 39 elegant rooms, suites, and villas feature soft colors, period furnishings, and Sarrancolin marble, as used at Versailles. Nearly all have ocean views, and villas include Turkish baths, and spacious terraces with private Jacuzzi.
Dine like a king at the renowned Restaurant de Rois, either in the luxurious dining room, or by sunset on the spectacular terrace. La Réserve's Spa offers a wide selection of treatments. If you need to get Riviera-ready, ask for a self-tan application - you'll look fantasic lounging by the 2000-square-foot heated saltwater pool, which stretches nearly to edge of the sea.
Be sure to explore nearby Villa Kerylos, a recreation of an ancient Greek residence, complete with whitewashed columns, courtyards, and gorgeous art, that recalls the town's early history as a Greek port.
