Last weekend, was the 1st weekend the Boyfriend and I spent outside of Paris since last November so no need to tell you that we were very excited about this weekend. This weekend was also a good opportunity to celebrate the end of the Boyfriend’s recovery after the knee surgery he had 6 weeks ago. No more weekends being stuck at home, we can finally get on with our lives.
We were very lucky to be able to stay Le Majestic Barrière, a prestigious five-star-hotel in Cannes. We were invited for the campaign “A winter facing the sea”: from November 1st to the 31st of March 2017, hotel rooms with sea view are available at only 156 € for 2 people! Very tempting isn’t it?
This weekend was perfect because we visited the hotel, we went to the restaurants, we had a massage at the spa of the hotel and strolled in Cannes. I want weekends like this one every week!
Visit of the hotel:
The Mélodie suite is 156 m2 and is named after the movie shot in 1963 in this hotel with Jean Gabin et Alain Delon.
Christian Dior suite is stunning, it’s a 450 m2 apartment! It’s the suite I prefered. Believe it or not but a G20 meeting was held in this suite!
The Majestic Barrière suite looks a lot like the Christian Dior one because they share the same disposition of rooms but it has a little something that makes all the difference… there a 150 m2 terrace on the roof with a pool!!! What a dream!
We weren’t staying in one of these suites, but our room was pretty amazing because it was big, the bed was huge and very comgfy, our bathroom very chic and…
…the cherry on the cake, a big terrace with this incredible view!
Restaurants and bars :
The Fouquet’s is a “bistrot Parisien” with a Mediterranean touch. We enjoyed so much having lunch outside by the pool.
At The Petite Maison de Nicole, the atmosphere is cozy and the decoration is romantic and rustic. The dishes that are served are sunny recipes like savour fried courgette flowers, calamaretti fritti, crab tempura… The food was very good and the atmosphere very festive this night because there was this band passing from table to table to ask people what music they should play and everyone in the restaurant was singing and clapping. So nice!
Finally, at the Bar Galerie du Fouquet’s Cannes, the sommelier made us taste several local organic wines. When we arrived on Saturday, the hotel had only reopened after 1 month of renovation so we were among the 1st clients to see the new bar. It’s beautiful isn’t it, I felt like I was in a Gastby movie.
The spa :
We had a 1h massage at the hotel spa, what a delight!
Of course we didn’t stay inside the hotel the whole weekend, we had to enjoy Cannes under the sun. We both already knew the city and we didn’t had much time but we wanted to go to the old city where the view is pretty amazing (even though it wasn’t the best idea for the Boyfriend’s knee).
Before catching our flight to go back to Paris we walked on the beach and we took a last breath of sea. If you’re on the French Riviera, don’t forget to go visit Nice. You can read again my blog post about it here.

I’d like to thanks Majestic and Joëlle for this wonderful weekend. We had time to rest and relax, enjoy the sun, eat good food and stroll, exactly what we needed. Now we’re ready to go back to our normal routine with a large smile.
