Hôtel du Palais
Steeped in history, this palatial luxury hotel, once the summer retreat of Napoleon III and his Spanish wife Empress Eugenie, has 132 rooms and 20 suites, all lavishly furnished. It sits in a magnificent, elevated position right over Grande Plage with poolside views of the ocean. No more than a five-minute walk from the centre of town and with ample on-site parking, there are three restaurants, including La Rotonde Restaurant fronted by acclaimed chef, Aurélien Largeau. Once frequented by royalty and Hollywood starlets of the Belle Époque, Hôtel du Palais today still retains that grand vestige of elegant old world charm.
