This French city boasts an array of tempting (and glamorous) hotspots to while away the Film Festival days and nights. Here are our top picks.
“You can’t go past the main strip, La Croisette. Give your credit card a workout at Céline, Valentino, Cartier and Balenciaga.” – Jackie Frank, marie claire publisher
“I love staying at the Grand Hyatt Hôtel Martinez. After a long flight and before I walk the red carpet, I hit the treadmill and then indulge in a massage. If you bring your bikini, head to the hotel’s private beach, Z Plage.” – L’Oréal Paris Australian ambassador Megan Gale
“For picture-postcard views of the Côte d’Azur, book a table at Le 360. If you like a little entertainment with your dining, Le Tube is where Robert Pattinson was spotted in the wee hours of the morning. Otherwise, for an authentically French experience, head to the labyrinthine Le Suquet quarter.” – Anna Saunders, marie claire executive editor - digital
“See celebrities arrive for screenings at the Palais des Festivals cinema. During the day, park yourself in the lobby of the Carlton hotel to watch A-listers wander by.”
– Sherine Youssef, marie claire beauty associate
“After-hours hotspots include pop-up La Boulangerie Bleue and Club Gotha, which have previously played host to celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Cara Delevingne.” – Anne-Marie Cheney, marie claire group sales director
