Fodor's Expert Review La Baie Dorée

579 bd. de la Garoupe, Antibes, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 06160, France

Clinging to the waterfront and facing the open sea, this pleasant inn provides private sea-view terraces off every room and a discreet aura to the point of self-effacing: the reception area is as small as a coat check and when you look out the window, you are reminded that you are paying for location, not sumptuous interiors. The public grounds and terraces progress in tiers down to the water, from the shaded restaurant (open from late May to late September) and bar to the boat dock to the private beach on the Baie de la Garoupe. The outdoor pool (yes, meaning there's another inside) is magnificent and free for guests to use.

PROS

  • every room has double glazing and shutters
  • beach offers water sports
  • parking and breakfast included

CONS
