Fodor's Review

Not far from the onetime villa of Gerald and Sara Murphy—those Roaring Twenties millionaires who devoted their lives to proving the maxim "living well is the best revenge"—the Belles Rives became the home-away-from-home for literary giant F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda (chums of the Murphys). Lovingly restored to 1930s glamour, this fabled landmark proves that what's old is new again, as France's stylish young set make this endearingly neoclassique place with lovely Art Deco accommodations one of their latest favorites, dining on the terrace of the on-site restaurant on a fine summer night, with the sea lapping below and stars twinkling in the velvety Mediterranean sky. There's no pool, but the private beach (très cher) is just steps away.
