We all know that everything’s bigger and better in Texas. But when it comes to fit for a king accommodation, opulence and the Eiffel Tower share their home: France. With that in mind, we bring you the top 3 most luxurious hotels in the European residence of hedonism.
The InterContinental Carlton Cannes
Half a mile away from the Palais des Festivals, the home of the International Cannes Festival, this grandiose hotel is the most legendary residence in Cannes. 30 minutes away from the Nice International Airport and in the heart of the city, at number 58 La Croisette, it offers a fabulous view. Guests get access to a private beach and a pier. The Carlton Cannes is more than a hotel- it reunites the Carlton Brasserie, the Chef Laurent Bunel and his enticing Provençal dishes, the Bar des Celebrities, and the beach restaurant. Part of its popularity is due to the 1954 To Catch a Thief motion picture, starring Grace Kelly and Cary Grant. Since then, the hotel hosted several other movies and named its suites after a few celebrities: Sofia Loren, Alain Delon and Sean Connery, to name a few. However, this palatial residence comes with fitting prices: the lowest price is 460$ for a standard room and the digits go up to 5500$ for the sea view suite.
Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris (37 Avenue Hoche)
Situated only a quarter-mile from the Arc de Triomphe, this hotel has one of the largest indoor pools in Paris and bears the luxury trademark offered by Raffles service. With a traditional French cuisine kitchen and an Italian fine dining restaurant, and Pierre Hermé as executive pastry chef, this hotel is a gourmet’s dream come true. In addition to the customary meeting rooms any grand hotel has to offer, this jewel placed in the heart of Paris will impress you with its very own art gallery and cinema room. Missing out on tourist’s attractions will no longer be a holiday issue; the hotel has art concierges who will assist guess with planning cultural and artistic itineraries in the City of Lights. But the price one must pay is just as impressive: the lowest you can get is 1,014 $ per night.
The White House Villa
Set just outside Juan-les-Pins on the French Riviera, the White House Villa is the most expensive and most luxurious lodging on our list. With prices starting from 13300 $ per guest per night, this beauty will make you feel like a Hollywood superstar and comes with the right accessories that will also make you look like one: 1 million $ of De Beers diamonds and jewelry to display at the Cannes Festival. If you still don’t feel like they’ll roll out the red carpet for you, then you should know you’ll get 24/7 personal entourage including security personnel, a hairdresser, a stylist and a jeweler, airport transfers in a sports car of your choice and a helicopter ride over the Cote D’Azur… They sure know how to make you feel like a movie star!
