The magnificent infinity pool is so large that you can backstroke up and down while staring at the mountains without risking a collision.
The words “12th century Templar fortress” probably conjure up images of imposing stone walls and austere accommodations. However, when they’re uttered in terms of a newly revamped sister hotel to Hôtel Du Cap-Eden-Roc on the French Riviera, the reality is more grand Gallic luxury steeped in history. Set in a secluded spot in the hills 40 minutes from Nice, this plush 40-room oasis offers respite from the crowded coastline, of which you’ll enjoy panoramic views from the terrace of its Michelin-starred Le Saint-Martin restaurant. A trip to nearby artists’ haven Saint-Paul de Vence is a must – you can cool off after all that gallery hopping in the hotel’s magnificent infinity pool.
