La Maison Bleue Is A Masterclass In Style

Alexander Kraft’s new luxurious Bed & Breakfast in Provence is the perfect weekend getaway.

Alexander Kraft, CEO of Sotheby’s International Realty France, is a man of timeless style and class. From his exquisite classic car collection to his impeccable suits, Alexander always seems to be a notch ahead. It would only be fitting that La Maison Bleue, his new luxurious Bed & Breakfast, would live up to the same golden standard. Spoiler alert, it does!

Located in the relatively unknown Haut Var region of Provence, between Monaco and Saint Tropez, La Maison Bleue is only 1 hour from Nice Airport and 45 minutes from Cannes, yet feels like a totally different universe. The luxurious Bed & Breakfast is ideally located overlooking the village square of Ampus, a tiny village whose natural stone houses are sloped into the hills, offering magnificent views over the countryside. It is reminiscent of Tuscany, yet entirely in a league of its own.

La Maison Bleue is not a hotel, nor a pension, but rather a private residence that opens its bedroom suites to selected guests. Even though the bedrooms may be on the smaller side, ranging froom 12-16 square feet, they each offer design, quality and comfort that is rarely found even in international 5- star-hotels.

Alexander Kraft is a man that has seen it all and stayed at the best hotels in the world, yet rarely he has found perfection. La Maison Bleue is the result of channeling all his impeccable taste into one destination. And the evidence of his great sense of style is present at every square feet of this luxurious Bed & Breakfast.

In each room guests will find a selection of timeless classics. Here you can pour yourself a glass of Martini, shaken not stirred, while enjoying Ian Fleming’s masterpieces of everyone’s favorite secret agent. If you let your eyes gaze from the pages and onto the wall you will see one of the worlds largest style icons, Gianni Agnelli, gazing back at you from a black and white picture. And should your eyes get weary, and you should hope that they do, you are in for a real treat..

The world’s best sleep?

All rooms are equipped with arguably the world’s best beds, hand-made to order in Sweden especially for La Maison Bleue by legendary Swedish bed maker Hästens. The bed linen is made from 300 thread-count Egyptian Cotton and on top of the bed you will find bed throws of the finest wool cashmere from Raulp Lauren Home. All these elements come together to bring you the best sleep you’ve ever had.

My stay at La Maison Bleue comes to an end, unfortunately. The real world is calling. But this little luxurious Bed & Breakfast in Ampus has made a brilliant first impression. I have a feeling we will see each other again soon enough..
