CASA CAT BA
To give up everything to open a hotel-villa (5 rooms only!) On the beach of the Island of Holbox in Mexico, THE destination of the moment… This is the crazy bet of Colette and Pierre-Marie. This Bordeaux couple has imagined a decor that is both exotic and stylish, minimalist, and bohemian. In short, the ideal place to make unforgettable memories with breakfast and aperitif to take on the spot. Comfort, service, an atmosphere "like at home", finesse…. And above all a warm welcome, considerate, and always with a smile!
Welcome to the Balearic Islands where the 43 rooms (including 9 with their private swimming pool) and 9 villas await you. Designed in the spirit of an artist's holiday home on the remains of a 19th century finca (farm), the latest addition to the Experimental Group, known for having awakened the Parisian mixology scene, is declining a whole art of living, with bar and restaurant. The chef offers a Mediterranean-inspired menu using local seasonal ingredients. The little extra? Savour a tailor-made cocktail by the pool, in one of the intimate corners or in the heart of friendly spaces. Invitation to reflection, inspiration and serenity, this little corner of paradise benefits from top-notch staff.
THE RED ROCKS
At the edge of the water, facing the Ile d'Or, this temple of French idleness lets nature express itself, in the heart of a protected environment, between the sea and the Mediterranean garden. In the pine forest, 50 bright and refined rooms and suites, open to the sea, reveal their refined decoration, magnified by the modernist architecture of the place. Conducive to slow life, the hotel also has two swimming pools including a seawater pool, three bars and two restaurants, including one Michelin starred in 2019! The experience continues thanks to a nice program of activities: outdoor cinema, table tennis, diving, pétanque, yoga, hiking, sailing, and fishing ...
On Ischia, an Italian island known for its health benefits and where the director and master of luxury Luchino Visconti has taken up residence, the Pellicano Hotels group has set down its luggage in the 15th century Mezzatore tower. Overlooking a private bay in the Gulf of Naples, this hotel offers a special feature: the thermal waters are housed in the spa pools. In addition to the well-being experience in the rooms, suites and cottage, the pleasure of the taste buds is in the spotlight in the three restaurants. In the shade of palm trees, with a breath-taking view of the sea, the Baïa offers, in addition to the fish of the day, the typical dish of the island, grilled mussels with lemon, while you will taste the best Spritz of your life on the terrace of La Torra.
In a private alley in the mythical Parisian district, the Hôtel Particulier Montmartre takes place in a sumptuous 19th century residence surrounded by a 900m2 plant setting. Enjoy one of the five suites, from 35 to 85 m2, decorated with care by big names like Olivier Saillard, Martine Aballéa or Natacha Lesueur… Each with their own universe. Fancy a drink? The cosy atmosphere of the bar imagined by designer Pierre Lacroix awaits you. Unless you prefer the garden? Feeling peckish? Meet at the Grand Salon. From brunch to dinner, let yourself be seduced by chef Gabriele Faiella's menu. The good news is that you no longer have to leave your haven to shop. A fine selection to pamper all those you love is now sold in the boutique.
