La Villa Mauresque in Boulouris sur Mer, sheltered in its park with fragrant essences bordered by crenellated walls, has just seen its charm rewarded with a fifth star.
Out of sight, feet in the water, La Villa Mauresque in Boulouris sur Mer near the Golf de Valescure, spreads its luxurious beauty in a magnificent park with Mediterranean fragrant essences. Its privileged location on the Provençal lands, halfway between Cannes, Capital of Cinema, and the glamor of Saint Tropez, its panorama over the red rocks of the Esterel and the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean, give this magnificent jewel an Oriental charm to Western luxury.
A confidential and refined address
The five-star hotel La Villa Mauresque offers 18 rooms themed around a famous artist and named after their prestigious name. Each room – with a view over the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean – is personalized with an exquisite decoration, accordingly to the artist, always original, luxurious and harmonious. A secluded and refined address, La Villa Mauresque offers large suites suitable for families or romantic couples. The hotel offers suites and spacious rooms with indoor or outdoor jacuzzis where you can gaze as far as the eye can see, the turquoise waters bordering the Estérel hills, as well as a a Spa with indoor jacuzzi and sauna. The rooms are designed like small individual villas with large furnished terrace opening onto the swimming pool and the lush and fragrant gardens of the park.
Enjoy five-star luxury
The hotel offers five-star services and a wide range of indoor and outdoor facilities for well-being, relaxation and boating. At the height of luxury, La Villa Mauresque boasts two outdoor swimming pools, a direct access to the sea with a boat house, pontoon and private harbor.
Bathing and sunbathing take place on a small sandy and private beach, located below the park. Water sports equipment such as cayaks, canoes, pedal boats, mini catamarans or small zodiacs are provided free of charge for the guests to enjoy the joys of the sea without moderation in a maritime setting of sumptuous beauties.
A rare and classified palace
The Villa Mauresque was built in 1881 as a palace for a rich Pasha on his return from Algeria. It is the work of the architect Pierre Chapoulart, famous for his villas that he scattered the Côte d’Azur from Hyères to Menton during the full wave of orientalism – The Villa Mauresque being the largest. The hotel is made up of two buildings: the Palais, resulting from the transformation of the stables and Les Jardins, the initial pavilion built to allow the ladies to enjoy the pleasures of the sea.
This mansion was later restored to its former glory, while maintaining its original oriental character. Its historical importance has earned it to be one of the few properties classified on the Côte d’Azur, which opens its doors to privileged guests in search of tranquility, comfort and five-star luxury.
An elegant and refined table feet in the water
The five stars of La Villa Mauresque enhance the five senses at the gastronomic restaurant Le Bougainvillier, where you can savor a Mediterranean and Provençal creative cuisine, following the market, based on seasonal products sublimated by the young chef Romain Bonhomme, a talented student of double starred chef Stéphane Raimbault (L’Oasis in Mandelieu).
The Gastronomic Restaurant Le Bougainvillier offers a paradisiacal view of the Mediterranean from the terrace by the sea, or from the interior through its bays opening onto the bay of Saint-Tropez.
Le Bougainvillier is open from Wednesday to Sunday for lunch from 12h30 to 14h30 and for dinner, from 19h30 to 22h00, then every day during the summer season.
