Tucked into pine-covered hills above the turquoise Bay of Cannes…is the picture-postcard village of Théoule sur Mer—and the orange-blossom scented Tiara Yaktsa boutique hotel.
Originally an elegant 1920s mansion—the 21-rooms and suites are reminiscent of the polished ambiance of the French Riviera home of American expats--Gerald and Sara Murphy. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s models for 'Tender is the Night'.
Guests are greeted on arrival with welcome cocktails on the terrace with its transporting panoramic view. Inside the comfortable rooms are gratis mini-bars—and the hotel’s restaurant L'Or Bleu utilizes the freshest of Mediterranean ingredients.
After a sumptuous breakfast above the Côte d'Azur--hike or bike to the village’s charming fishing port and through the surrounding natural paradise. Or sail, water-ski, dive, golf, and be sure to catch the ferry over to the famous Lérins Islands.
Nearby is La Croisette in Cannes and the beautiful Provençal villages of Grasse, Mougins Saint Paul de Vence, Saint Tropez, Mougins, Monaco; Aix-en-Provence, Saint-Rémy, Le Lubéron en Provence, and Les Callanques de Marseille.
