Alora. Un petit déjeuner starts your experience. Everything is FRESH. Salmon, freshly prepared eggs from nearby farms, honey, beetroot or tomato or carrot juices; home made Italian pastry, a variety of regional salamy, prosciutto, and assorted fruit.

We spent 5 nights here recently in relatively bad weather and loved every minute. Impeccable and friendly service and world-class cuisine (not stated lightly!) sourced from their own farm. Rooms are somewhat ordinary for the price but never mind. The facilities including spa with hydro pools, private beach and gardens make the experience totally worthwhile. Highly recommended splurge.

This place is paradise and I believe if you ever thought about whether it makes higher sense to have a money, this hotel / location / service / staff are the answer. Without a budget you can't enjoy this wonderful place...worth every franc. Highly recommended.

That's the place where everything is simply done properly. Food, location, atmosphere, service... it's a place where total relaxation comes all by itself. Especially the lunch inmost the garden with a great selection of food gives a truly mediterranean feeling.
