From the Atlantic Coast …
Holistic wellness starts with a balanced diet, and uplifting views are sure to enhance its benefits. At La Presqu’île in Quiberon, you can dine on refined Breton cuisine with invigorating views of the Atlantic. Further down the coast in La Baule, Le Ruban Bleu overlooks one of the longest stretches of golden sandy beach in France. It is the ideal spot to savour seafood while watching the ballet of kiteboards gliding atop the waves. Still further south, in between the dense forest and fine sand of Oléron Island, lies IØDE, an authentic seafood restaurant where diners are serenaded by the sea lapping upon the shore within a few steps of their table.
… to the Mediterranean Sea
If France’s other coast is calling your name, you will find similarly spectacular panoramas at Les Terrasses du Syracuse. This gleaming white terrace juxtaposes sweeping sea views with the crystalline glitter of the swimming pool at its heart, and serves mouthwatering Mediterranean fare to match. In between sightseeing excursions in Cannes, head to the Beach Restaurant, where you can enjoy a leisurely lunch with your toes in the soft sand. Nobu Fairmont Monte Carlo serves Chef Matsuhisa’s iconic fusion of Japanese and South American cuisine against a backdrop of gleaming superyachts at anchor; while Corsica’s La Carte Postale tantalises with all the sun-drenched flavours of the Mediterranean on an elevated terrace with picture-postcard coastal vistas.
