The heated infinity pool is one of the most emblematic places in Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc. In 1914 hotelier Antoine Sella dynamited the pool out of the basalt rock and launched the hotel’s summer season.

Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea the pool offers its guests idyllic panoramas of the French Riviera, from Juan-les-Pins to the Estérel coastline and the Lérins Islands. Under the gentle rays of the sun our head pool attendant is at your disposal for swimming lessons while our waiters will gladly compose cocktails filled with summer freshness.

Cinematic Beaches: The Hotel Martinez Has the Best Private Beach in France?

By: Christopher Roney

What happens when you combine the location of perhaps the world's most famous film festival with an amazing beachfront? I could give you a bunch of illustrative analogies, but don't let me spoil the surprise. Why don't you head to the Hotel Martinez and find out for yourself? Zplage, which is both the hotel's private beach and the technical term for when your shirt gets stuck in your zipper, is one of the premiere beaches in the world. With over 400 sun lounges and a vast pontoon, you're free to enjoy the sights of the ocean and tan on the French Riviera, all without having to even dip your toes in the water unless you'd like. Dine right on the beach at the Zplage Beach Restaurant, or head indoors for a two-star Michelin experience at the Le Relais Martinez. The piano bar, heated outdoor pool, and 2500 sq ft of conference space mean that the Martinez can host whatever event you and your operating budget can dream up. It's a tragic oversight that so many people who think of France don't look past Paris because France has far more to offer. If you take a trip a little bit off the beaten path, the Hotel Martinez will make you quickly forget the way back, and you'll be so enraptured, you may even forget to return home.
