In the guide, 23 establishments have been awarded three keys, 37 have received two keys, and 127 have earned one Michelin Key. These Keys are soon to become the international standard for travelers seeking accommodations with unique hospitality concepts, distinctive character, and remarkable service.

Hôtel Belles Rives
About Hôtel Belles Rives
Situated on the stunning coastline of the French Riviera, Hôtel Belles Rives stands as a beacon of 1930s glamour and enduring romance. Once the home of literary icons Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, the Art Deco mansion, now awarded one Michelin Key, boasts a legacy woven through its frescoed walls and gilded chandeliers. Today, the same family that opened its doors nearly a century ago continues to uphold its heritage of luxury, ensuring each guest’s service surpasses expectations, with terraces offering candlelit tables by the sea and private sandy retreats just steps from the sparkling Mediterranean.


The spirit of the Jazz Age thrives within its rooms, where elegant décor meets modern amenities, offering balconies with water views and sophisticated touches of Hermès and Penhaligon’s. La Passagere, the hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant, is a testament to its exceptional character. Here, chef Aurélien Véquaud’s high-flying Mediterranean menu infused with Vendée origins delivers unforgettable dishes, from raviole of crab with caviar to regional specialties reimagined. Each meal concludes with the artful desserts of pastry chef Steve Moracchini, as sumptuous as the view over the Esterel mountains, ensuring a stay at Hotel Belles Rives is an exquisite journey of the senses, rich in history and gastronomic delight.
