About this Hotel

Price From $80

The hotel sits atop a hill behind the tiny beach resort of Cavaliere, and every room enjoys a view that includes Cavaliere Bay and the Hyeres Islands.

The 24 rooms are very simple and bungalow-like, but cozy, and each has a private entrance and terrace. There's no A/C, but a refreshing breeze comes in off the sea.

You can walk down to the beach in a matter of minutes, but the last stretch back up is a killer. Driving is an easier option—or just stay on the premises and paddle around in the pool.

It'd be a shame to miss the beaches around here, however, as they're some of the best on the coast. Less frequented than the more developed areas near Cannes and Nice, this stretch of the Riviera has smaller crowds, golden beaches, and crystal-clear water.

Details Closed mid-October to March.
