Scorching summers in Provence beg for a dip in a hotel pool. From Avignon to Cannes, these are the finest hotels for swimming in the south of France, all bookable on Culture Trip.

A refreshing plunge is the perfect antidote to a sultry French summer, especially when there is an ice-cool cocktail being prepared while you swim. Whether you’re primed for a mini-break on the Côte d’Azur or fancy a countryside retreat on a winery, here are the top hotels in Provence with their own swimming pools.

There’s no shortage of water within this 491ha (1,213 acres) wine estate. The indoor lap pool features a countercurrent machine for an aqua workout, while the larger outdoor pool is ideal for a more relaxed dip. It helps that the pool bar serves ice-cold glasses of wine and fresh slices of melon. At the Cinq Mondes spa, you’ll find two jacuzzis and VIP balneotherapy rooms.

From the sun loungers, you’d be forgiven for struggling to identify where the infinity pool ends and the Mediterranean Sea begins at Hôtel Les Terrasses D’Eze. Found high in the charming hilltops of Eze, it has a superb vantage point. The privilege extends into the 87 rooms and suites – every one comes with a coastal view.

Tucked into the north end of Prado Bay, this 150-room hotel is only a few minutes stroll from the beach. Between May and October, you can enjoy a dip in the seafront pool – it’s so close to the Mediterranean Sea that you could practically jump in. The subtle colour scheme of minimalist white walls with yellow notes allows the surroundings to take centre stage, especially in the glass-fronted bar overlooking the water.

    Hôtel Cap-Estel was once a favourite haunt of the Beatles, and it’s said that Paul McCartney wrote the ballad Michelle while strumming his guitar by the pool. There’s no guarantee you’ll write your own chart-topper, but the luxurious surroundings that attracted the biggest band in the world remains to this day. In contrast to the high-altitude resorts above in Eze, this hotel is found at a knee-friendly sea level. It means there’s a private beach to enjoy away from the crowds, and accessible rooms for visitors with reduced mobility.

    The late Swiss billionaire Andy Rihs was the visionary behind this gorgeous countryside resort, just an hour from Marseille Provence Airport.

    After checking in, head straight for the elevator and push the button for the top floor. The rooftop is the place to be at this hotel on the Rue Notre Dame in Cannes. Resident DJ Julia R drops beats while you sip a pisco sour or rhum coco from the sky bar. Alternatively, nab a sun lounger next to the infinity pool and snack from a menu as dandy as the rooftop surroundings. Try chef Lori Moreau’s briozza – half brioche, half pizza.
