Fodor's Expert Review La Garoupe-Gardiole

60–74 chemin de la Garoupe, Antibes, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 06160, France

Cool, simple, and accessible to non–movie stars, this pair of partnered hotels offers a chance to sleep on the hallowed Cap peninsula and bike or walk to the pretty Garoupe beach. A sizable heated pool, framed by high walls and tall pines, is serviced by an outside bar. Guest rooms are comfortably furnished in both buildings, with the Garoupe offering modern style and the Gardiole a rustic Provençal design. There's a restaurant nearby (Le Jardin du Cap, where entrées cost around €30, is 164 feet away); otherwise, this place is pretty isolated. The walk into town takes about 20 minutes or there's a bus stop right in front (€1).

PROS

  • location among million-dollar mansions
  • spacious rooms available for families but the area is pretty quiet
  • free Wi-Fi and parking

CONS

  • buffet breakfast costs €13
  • towels cost €2 per day
  • some rooms are small, but ask for one facing pool
