The philosophy

The beautiful view

The philosophy 

La Belle Vue is an address that evokes the luxurious sanctuary in which the protagonists of the film “The Lost” took refuge. This architecture brings back nostalgic memories of the south of France in the 19th century. Founded in 1854 by wealthy winegrowers named the Baulac Brothers, its first function was the manufacture of wine.

Today, it is still possible to make your own wine in the cellars of this vineyard transformed into a guest house. This building has stood the test of time and has improved over time.

At La Belle Vue , the owners care deeply about the physical and spiritual well-being of their visitors. Both relaxing and exotic, it is good to live there.

Our favorite

It’s love at first sight for decorating the guest house. The alliance between the period building and vintage decorative elements gives character to each room.

Staying at “La belle vue” means learning that beauty is found in the authentic.” Thanks to its seven rooms, decorated in a country atmosphere by the owner Yvonne (former interior designer in Stockholm), residents have the opportunity to discover a magnificent view of the tiled roofs revealing shades of orange on the village.

Lily of the Valley


The philosophy 

The 5-star luxury hotel “Lily of the Valley” advocates values ​​that are important to Plume-Paris, starting with the Essential, Kindness and Generosity. Consequently, this building located in the heart of the Riviera reinvents luxury hotels. This puts itself at the service of well-being and utility. The hotel is the perfect illustration of the harmony between nature and man. For Philippe Starck “The design of the hotel must not impose itself on nature, but adapt to it and blend in with it”.

Our favorite

This five-star hotel has a crack team. Indeed, the staff members know how to be responsive and discreet. Thus, they allow customers to live an experience that is much more human.
Within this hotel, luxury has the opportunity to express itself in several forms, starting with the environment. Rare are those who have the opportunity to stay in nature unmodified by man. The hotel offers its users the opportunity to observe the wild expanses of Gigaro from their rooms. An idyllic setting where residents can relax, but also practice sports. This luxury is also affirmed through the architecture of the hotel.

For the Lily of the Valley, Philippe Starck was inspired by provincial abbeys and the hanging gardens of Babylon. A therapeutic desire emerges from this wooden construction. The designer pushed the experience to its climax: the touch with the concrete of the semi-circular arcades and the exotic woods in the rooms lined with wooden posts supporting awnings. Natural materials are in fact in the spotlight in this project, with wood omnipresent and used outside for the vertical slats cladding the facades as well as for the joinery. Inside, several varieties of wood make up the structural parts, the awnings, the false ceilings (exotic red wood), the parquet flooring, the decorative panels and the shelves, up to the rustic furniture, mostly made of wood.
In the rooms at Lily of the Valley you feel at home, combining both slow living and ethnic-inspired furniture.

The philosophy 

One day, the writer Sébastien Barrère said this: “In Hossegor, the Ocean courted the Adour, from this love affair Lake Hossegor was born. » And it is from its shore surrounded by the maritime pine forest that the four-star hotel Les Hortensias du Lac comes to life. It was in 2019 that this place reopened following a period of work. Today, “les hydrangeas du lac” offers residents a place to live and rest.
