A 1930s waterside villa reimagined as a contemporary boutique hotel, in Marseille
Fall in love with the sea all over again at Les Bords de Mer. This modern retreat just a short stroll from the historic Vieux Port was originally built in the 1930s. Its white walls and tall windows conjure up this elegant art deco heritage. While hidden surprises such as a rooftop pool, spa and minimalist interiors bring Les Bords de Mer firmly up to date.
Even when you’re inside this luxury hotel, the Mediterranean is never far away. It glimmers outside the window of each room and suite, and its riches find its way onto the menus at Les Ronds dans l’Eau restaurant. When you’re not out enjoying Catalan beach, make for the spa, with its pale stone hammam and heated pool. This is the only wellness retreat in Provence where you can enjoy treatments using exclusive REN products.Read more[SPLIT]Read less
Beyond Les Bords de Mer, Marseille waits to be discovered. Follow the twists and turns of the old town to historic sites such as Vieille Charité. Or book onto private hotel excursions such as boat trips to the Frioul Islands and guided wine tasting tours. Back at your boutique base, it’s cocktail hour at Le terrace bar. Sip a signature creation or stone-cold classic, and watch the sun sink over the shimmering waves.
Enjoy your stay!
