Family holidays at Constance Belle Mare Plage

KaKoo Club, our free all-day kids club, is a haven for younger visitors where your children will make new friends and build adventures of their own.

We offer excursions to the botanical garden, bird park and lion park. We’ll introduce your children to the underwater world with trips on our glass bottom boat and underwater sea-walks – helping to create some very special holiday memories for them.

Back at Kakoo camp, your children can capture these memories through painting, crafts and games. You can be sure they’ll have plenty to talk about when you rendezvous at the end of the day, and will regale you with endless bed time stories about their adventures.

Constance Belle Mare Plage walks the line perfectly between larger family resort, and an indulgent grown-up space that offers you the total resort experience for all ages.

Shiseido at Constance Hotels

Shiseido celebrates its 140th anniversary this year: 140 years of expertise, new discoveries, new products and new innovations.

Shiseido Eudermine

Shiseido Eudermine, original at the front

Shiseido began as a single prescription pharmacy in the Ginza district of Tokyo in 1872, and has since become one of the most influential skin care houses in the world.

The products are developed with the most advanced science and uncompromising qualities, offering our guests the very best in skincare.

Eudermine elixir

To celebrate the 140th anniversary, Shiseido has brought back their first ever skin care product within its original packaging, created in 1897. Eudermine is an elixir to soothe and hydrate the skin and give a cushioned plumpness back to the complexion.

Within the skincare regime, Shiseido has always used a Japanese Beauty Secret, or ‘softener’. Once you have cleansed your skin, Shiseido recommends you use a softener to balance the skin within and allow your moisturiser to penetrate further into the skin and have a longer lasting effect.

Shiseido at Constance Hotels

At Shiseido spas, including at Constance Belle Mare Plage, Ephelia and Lemuria, guests can enjoy the newly created 140th Anniversary Spa Experiences. These are  3 different packages, offering the very best in spa treatments and massage discoveries. A Spa must have.

Constance Hot List: where to eat in the South of France

If you’re heading to the South of France this summer, seek out these top tables in the region. Recommended by Bruno Le Gac, food connoisseur and Resident Manager at Constance Belle Mare Plage.

Serge Gouloumes

Mougins

In Mougins, I recommend the table of my friend Serge Gouloumès at Relais et Châteaux Le Mas Candille. Here, you’ll experience the greatest products of the South – talent and generosity.

Menton

In Menton, chef Mauro Colagreco is super hot right now at Le Mirazur. Expect a beautifully creative and tasty cuisine, light and full of fresh vegetables.

Marseilles, old port

Lionel Levy is doing a great job at his restaurant Une Table au Sud, located right on Marseille’s old port. Splendid fish, respecting the Mediterranean techniques and products, and the creativity of uber-friendly chef Levy.
