Travel – Splish Splash! The Stunning Swimming Pools of The French Riviera…
June 23rd 2016
by Tom Noble
As summer ascends upon us, pretty much everyone knows about the French Riviera and all that it has to offer this time of the year. The food, the weather, the lovely villages stretched across the coastline – and, of course, the five-star hotels. Few, however, are aware of the magnificent swimming pools that these luxury establishments offer up – each and every one as enchanting as the area it calls home. Odds are that you’re spending a week or two in the Côte d’Azur pretty soon, so we’ve put together a short list of the best places to make a splash this summer.
LA PISCINE DE L’HÔTEL DU CAP-EDEN-ROC, AU CAP D’ANTIBES
The views along the coast are reason enough to be here – and the Eden Roc sure makes the most of them. Located in Antibes, this pool is dynamited right into the rock, overlooking the Med and providing a unique view stretching from Juan Les Pins to the red rocks of Esterel and the matchless Lérin Islands. Once you’ve dried up, Eden Roc also happens to be one of our favourite hotels in the whole world.
LA RÉSERVE DU BEAULIEU & SPA
The Réserve De Beaulieu & Spa, facing the Mediterranean, also offers a stunning 200 sqm pool filled with sea water, lined by deckchairs that signal you to stretch out and relax. Historic guests include characters such as Winston Churchill and Pablo Picasso, and we can sure see why.
