We made many walks and sometimes with mountain...

Nice polo, shorts, shirt and tongs can be perfectly fashionable - for me at least.... Agree surfer ware might be a bit ill placed thought... but anyway, Patrick handled this very very...

We have never been treated in a hotel as we have been here!! The staff will personalise their work to your particular idiosyncrasies!! It's like having a butler who has known you for ever!

Small family hotel, great for a quiet and relaxing beach holiday. Refurbished in 2014, this hotel has all the modern facilities expected for a 4 star hotel. I liked the simple but timeless chic design of the rooms and the overall well maintained facilities available. All the staff were very polite, well trained and efficient. Always a sign of great...

The hotel location is good, although at the end of Flic En Flac, there is a beautiful view - the mountain on the other side of the bay. The rooms are nice and generally clean. The number of parasols on the beach are no more than 15, which is far from sufficient and we had to search and rush every...
