Hôtel Château de la TourCannes, France
The stunning coastal city of Cannes has long attracted the world's glitterati to the French Riviera, with its striking seaside beauty and the famous film festival making quite an impression. No lavish escape into this medley of culture and paradise would be complete without a stay at the luxurious Hotel Chateau de la Tour. The immaculately manicured grounds upon which this regal hotel rests will take your breath away before you even step through its elegant doors. Richly scented bougainvilleas add bold splashes of vibrant color to the lush emerald lawns, and the infinite azure sky blends beautifully with the shimmering Mediterranean sea on the horizon. Architecturally stunning, the clean lines of the castle-esque hotel create a magnificent aura of tranquility, blending modern comforts with the quaint 13th-century charm of the south of France.
When at the Hotel Chateau de la Tour, do as the French do (meaning indulge in life's simple pleasures). Take a dip in the sparkling outdoor-pool, breaking for the moment the perfect mirrored reflection of the surreal surroundings. From a plush lounge chair, let the Mediterranean sun kiss your skin as you finally get the chance to read the novel that's been lying idly on your nightstand. Most importantly, satisfy your taste buds (and appetite) with some famous French cuisine at the hotel's restaurant, and then get in touch with your inner sommelier at the property's wine cave. If you are in the mood for some action, grab a tennis racket or golf club, or even your bathing suit for some water skiing (and if it has been awhile, enjoy the whirlpool later that evening). Regardless of whether you are looking to rest or play, the opulent Hotel Chateau de la Tour will ensure your stay in the French Riviera is nothing short of extraordinary (perhaps seeming like a scene from an award-winning film).
