My Secret corner of Paradise, Hotel de l’Orangeraie.

french ideas

On the French Riviera, away from the busy Saint Tropez, This Hotel is a 1900 Mansion, that was an old Covent, and did not loose his original charm.

Hotel de l’Orangeraie, is peacefull with such a nice view overlooking the Mediteranee sea.  The swinming pool is awesome, surrounded by old palm trees. Enjoy the blue sky, the sun and the islands away. This is an adorable and romantic spot on the Riviera.

Take your Breakfast on the terrace , in the shade or in the sun, as you want. Enjoy the lovely restaurant specially for dinner. I love it.

The rooms and the suites are very different and all nicely equipted. I love the sea view suite (photo).

For the season, July and August, they host, three times per week, some wonderful live music. Its a dream to have a cocktail enjoying the flowered park. Nothing is snobich there…

Even in the best hotels on the Riviera Maya, they cannot make them like this. They are honestly, the very very best I had in this region for more than 4 years.

Behind me a Mexican lady was spreading butter on her Tartines…
