Hôtel Les Roches Rouges (Saint-Raphaël, France)

Peeking over the Mediterranean, just outside Saint-Raphaël in the Cote D’Azur, Hôtel Les Roches Rouges has all the flavors of a chic Riviera-style property, including bespoke French furnishings from Festen Architecture. Here, there are two swimming pools: a heated lap pool and the large ocean piscine that’s fed by seawater, measuring nearly 100 feet long with a natural swimming lane cut into the coastal rock. Surrounded by stylish sun loungers, guests take breaks from sipping spritzes to dip in and out of the cool, salty sea.
