A Look Back at Prince William and Duchess Kate's Relationship Milestones

Rumor has it, the charmed family of four just spent a night at the Hôtel du Palais in Biarritz—a Michelin star-winning, full-service spa-holding, coastline-overlooking resort on the France and Spain border.

"The Queen of Resorts and Resort of Kings" looks so regal for a reason: According to the website, emperor Napoleon III and wife Eugénie de Montijo once used the estate as their imperial summer palace.

But from the room views …


… to the dining views …

… the resort looks like more than just a royal stay.


If you're looking for luxury on your honeymoon (or want to throw the loveliest of French seaside destination weddings), consider Hôtel du Palais so that we can live vicariously through you.


And with a kids club this cool (little robes?!), even an anniversary getaway would be doable.
