01 Beresheet Hotel

Mitzpe Ramon, Israel


Perched on the edge of the Ramon Crater, a visit to this hotel is akin to sojourning on another planet. Plus, the restaurants are dedicated to satisfying all dietary needs with unique and healthy dishes made using local products from nearby desert farms.



02 La Co(o)rniche

Pyla-sur-Mer, France


Backing onto the highest sand dune in Europe, this former 1930s hunting lodge, which was revamped by Philippe Starck in 2010, is where the French come to take their vacances. And with good reason: the area’s natural beauty provides instant serenity.



03 Hotel Il Pellicano

Porto Ercole, Italy


With a Tuscan seaside vista that’s straight out of an episode of The White Lotus, the vibe at this legendary hotel (and Biologique Recherche spa partner) is surprisingly down-to-earth, and a perfect example the art of sprezzatura, Italian nonchalance and effortless elegance.
