It’s hard to find a hotel this perfect on the entire French Riviera. Guestrooms at this Cocteau-themed delight were designed by Jean-Philippe Noel, an artist usually found creating 7-star hotels in Dubai. Yet prices at the Napoléon couldn’t be keener for such a stunning beachfront location. The hotel also boasts a private beach club, a solar-powered heated swimming pool, and a leafy garden. And, as many guests stay in order to dine at top gourmet restaurant Mirazur nearby, the Napoléon offers a concessionary Gourmet Stay package with guaranteed table booking. Leaving such a cocoon of fine linen and original art for anything less is a painful experience.
