We searched long and hard for somewhere to stay for our first experience of the French Riviera and for a couple that love the boutique style and had a new little 13 month old adventurer travelling with them this was a challenge! The perfect answer - The Orion.
The location was perfect - rural, peaceful and beautiful - but perfectly situated to take in Cannes, Monaco & St Tropez. The welcome was perfect - Diane made us feel completely at home and nothing was too much trouble - even the many directions we asked for. We chose to stay in the Akela summerhouse, even for us adventurers a stay in a treehouse with a 13 month old would have been too much! It was perfect - with it's two bedrooms for our mini adventurer to have his own space, a lovely little kitchen where we prepared our typically French evening super to enjoy on the private terrace as the sun went down and the gardens came alive with the sound of frogs and fireflies dance around the trees and bushes.
We enjoyed the communal breakfast with fellow guests, under a canopy in the gardens and looking up at St Paul in the distance - it is surprising what conversations you can share with people who do not speak each others language - that is the pleasure of travel. One last thing to mention, the natural pool, I think my husbands comment summed it up "it's like swimming in Evian" - say no more!
