Oooh la la it’s Cannes film festival time and all eyes are on this superglamor, luxury drenched Hotel du Cap Eden Roc.

Over the past 140 years its been immortalized In films, books and poems. Every square Inch of this seaside, French Riviera hotel exudes star power and glamour.

What is even more exciting is that this hotel was set up (for writers seeking inspiration,) by  the founder of France’s Le Figaro newspaper, And so the likes of Scott Fitzgerald and  Ernest Hemingway  have stayed and immortalized it in their books.

I not only pay homage to Picasso in the cabana by the sea where he got his inspiration,but also have a memorable swim in the iconic heated salt water pool, cut into the edge of the cliff in 1914. Set among nine hectares of landscaped gardens and trees, this breathtakingly beautiful hotel pampers all my senses.

I get high on the gastronomique fare, from the vibrantly flavourful Provençal-style gambas to the freshest of Oysters, to the swirls of masterful desserts.

I raise a toast with the iconic Bellini (of course)to the charming Valerie Muller and the brilliant chef Arnaud Poett .A true culinary poet.
