NICE CITY BREAK

June 17, 2016

one-day-in-nice-cote-d-azur-disi-couture-2016-02
I seem to be traveling non stop lately and everything looks like I’ve not been at home a lot. I almost has for one week at home or two weeks between next trips, but I’m not complaining and it is wonderful to have such a busy and intense life. I’m enjoying every second of this crazy busy period, and I’m already certain that my children will be tired of hearing my stories about the places I have visited, people I met and the things I’ve seen in my twenties and thirties. My motto is: “Take every chance you get and say yes to new opportunities!”

04-travel-lifestyle-hotel-tiara-yaktsa-cote-dazur-disi-couture

Based on the latest post about Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel, I was also invited to visit Tiara Yaktsa Côte d’Azur, another of the hotel’s sister properties. Its magnificent views over the blue sea and the intoxicating scents of its manicured gardens gave me the real well-being.

Probably Europe’s most romantic hotel, has been already secured first place in the ranking of the most romantic hotels in Europe in January 2011, also awarded from TripAdvisor when they Travellers Choice Awards 2012 under 25 best hotels in France. The Tiara Yaktsa Côte d’Azur, is a boutique hotel with unique charm, nestled in the seaside town of Théoule-sur-Mer, it’s a haven of peace and tranquility.

Overview

Embraced by the vibrant blue colored Mediterranean sea and dominated by the Esterel range, the Théoule-sur-Mer region is a land of contrasts. Sea and mountains nestle naturally. For those headed toward Cannes, Théoule-sur-Mer is the first commune in the Alpes Maritimes. A former fishing port, the charming maritime enclave is now home to no fewer than 4 yachting harbors. Locals are highly attentive to the quality of life in this still relatively unknown corner of paradise thus assuring a prestige destination. In this unspoiled setting, delicate pine-wood scents surround The Hotel Tiara Yaktsa Côte d’Azur.

Rooms

The 5-star Hôtel Tiara Yaktsa Côte d’Azur has 21 rooms and suites. All rooms are decorated in luxurious oriental chic decor and delightful touches. The Superior Rooms offer cosy and spacious surroundings. Every guest experience a wonderful scenery in Côte d’Azur flair of refinement and total relaxation. Every room has a wonderful sea overview and these are unforgettable picturesque views that will always stay on your mind.

Food and Drink

We were able to spend a day at the Hôtel Tiara Yaktsa Côte d’Azur, to sunbath by the hotel’s infinity pool and to enjoy the 5-star “L’or Bleu Restaurant“. This restaurant is a true celebration of the Mediterranean sea and sky, stunning tastes with unique ingredients. We had an unforgettable dining experience hosted by Chef Guillaume Anor.

With a spectacular bay view on the most glamorous terraces, the gourmet restaurant at Hotel Tiara Yaktsa Côte d’Azur was an unforgettable night. For dinner I choose the starter “Shrimps in Cocktail Style, with fruit tartar, basil and spicy Guacamole”, companioned with the main dish “Loin of Lamb wrapped in Kadaif and baby purple artichokes” – my personal favorite, and cherry on the top the sweet note “Roasted apricot, rosemary flavored, crunchy tuile with apricots”. Everything was mind-blowing delicious and a wonderful dinner experience!

Beauty Center & Fitness

The Hotel Tiara Yaktsa Côte d’Azur, ensures the well-being of the guests. The hotel’s beauty center is a perfect place to relax with a personalized selection of massages. With signature Sothys body care treatments sooth the spirit. You can choose from manicure, to waxing or a make-up session to complete your personal care. The fitness center faces the bay yet is shielded from the terrace overlooking the hotel pool.

Résumé

The moment I entered Hotel Tiara Yaktsa, I knew it’s a special place. Greeted by blue skies and yacht-dotted seas, there’s an earthy Moroccan theme in harmony of wood furniture and terracotta tiles. Impressed by its gorgeous gardens, the elegant restaurant, and staff who welcomed us like a family. Clearly, the “L’or Bleu Restaurant” was the best restaurant I have ever been before. The taste of the food and the visual setting of every dish was just spectacular. You should choose to spend your days and nights at Tiara Yaktsa , that will everyday take your breath away.

Résumé

Everything was absolutely stunning at the Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel & Spa! Beautiful pool terrace, palm and exotic garden, sun-drenched terraces with a wonderful view, where you can have a remarkable level of privacy. The rooms are beautiful and clean, spacious and updated, but the true highlight was the amazing service. The restaurant‘s food was absolutely mind-blowing. The level of service is personal – very friendly but not intrusive. Every single staff member we met exuded warmth and sincerity. Highly recommended it and I wish to visit Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel & Spa again.

Mostly good things happen, when you don’t expect them. So it was, when I got invited from Longines to attend the Prix De Diane 2015 in Chantilly.
