- the long stretch of beach in front is distinctly average
Loriet Hotel Review
The most exclusive digs in the area may be in the Loriet's 1880 stone mansion, where high frescoed ceilings, friezes, and antique furniture set the mood—little wonder you'll sometimes find visiting dignitaries booking the fancy "suites" here (these start at €550 in high season). Considerably less enticing and more utilitarian are the regular rooms and studios in the hotel's modern section, which is separated from the mansion by a beautiful pool and a grove of tall pines. An on-site restaurant is open July and August. The hotel lies across from the beach and is a five-minute drive from town and the airport.
