If you are looking for something a little different to the norm in the French Riviera, something a little retro-cool, then this quirky little hotel of just 18 rooms might be ideal for you. The Hotel Mademoiselle, owned by Alain and Alexandra Dupoux, is located in the heart of Antibes Juan-les-Pins with just a three minute walk to the jetty to take a Riviera-Line boat transfer over to Saint-Tropez, Cannes or Monaco – this is South of France but definitely with a stylish twist. And rates start at just €100 a double.
If you also love patisserie, then even better, Alexandra loves to cook and to share her oeuvres with her guests so a return from the beach might find a surprise plate of still-warm cookies or a couple of meringues with your name on them – to be enjoyed in the peace and tranquility of the hotel’s gardens. In fact, Alexandra has just launched her own aptly-named catering brand, Miss Sweet, and is taking the Côte d’Azur by culinary storm.
Expect glorious individual decor rather than a standard hotel room, relax in the shaded garden oasis and indulge in Mademoiselle’s delicious cakes! Work it off by walking around Juan-les-Pins – it’s a foot-friendly town – and enjoy this joyful alternative to the larger, grand dame hotels in the area.
