Hotel Sainte Valérie
, Rue de l'Oratoire, Juan-les-Pins, Provence.
This is a refined, friendly and comfortable little hotel, right in the heart of the Cote d'Azur. Built in the 1930s, this beautiful Provencal house is a classic of the French Riviera.
The garden and terraces of Hotel Sainte Valérie offer a peaceful stopover in the perfumed shade of its Mediterranean and exotic species of trees and flowering shrubs, close to the famous pine garden "La Pinède" of Juan les Pins, and right nearby the beach. By day, the pool, lounge, fountain and secret corners invite you into a privileged privacy. By night, the romantic ambiance of soft lighting and music makes the garden a wonderfully romantic place to sit and enjoy a drink along with the warmth of a Provencal summer.
From April to October, the garden offers a heated outdoor pool and jacuzzi, sun beds on the terrace, fountains, and a place to relax all day long. Bougainvilleas climb the walls, cherry and citrus trees blossom and an arbour of mulberry trees stretches all around the patio, and gently shades the terrace.
Breakfast is normally served on the terrace, a comprehensive buffet cooked on the spot to your order.
All the guest rooms open onto the terrace and garden, most of them with a balcony or terrace with room to sit out and enjoy the Mediterranean air. They range in size from 20m2 to 55m2, and each one has a firm mattress with a super-comfortable topper, flatscreen television, wi-fi, air-conditioning and a minibar.
Hotel Sainte Valérie is just a short step from the centre of Juan les Pins, and a similar distance from the beach and harbour. Cannes is about 6km away and a similar distance inland will take you into the Provence countryside.
