Having opened its doors during the tumult of the roaring twenties, the Martinez hotel has immediately become the place to party in luxury and glamour. It is indeed its panoramic views over the bay of Cannes, the luxurious interiors, the selective guests, and the incomparable aura that make the Hotel Martinez the symbol par excellence of the French Riviera.

With the creation of the Cannes Film Festival in 1946, the Martinez Hotel became the gateway to the world of cinema, its stars and its red carpets. It welcomes, each year, the greatest icons of French and international cinema. It is to honor this intimate relationship that the interior architect, Pierre-Yves Rochon imagined, on the 7th and last floor of the hotel, two splendid Penthouse apartments dedicated to two great personalities of the cinema: Isabelle Huppert, French actress, and Thierry Frémaux, general delegate of the Cannes Festival. Sharing a space of 1,250m2, between interior and exterior, these two suites, with a panoramic view of the bay of Cannes, are true
jewels that together makeup one of the largest suites in Europe.

Each of the Penthouse apartments was created in a unique way with the unprecedented contribution of the duo Isabelle Huppert and Thierry Frémaux who both brought their personal touch and vision of glamour to these places. They had at the heart of their project the desire to combine luxury and comfort for a breathtaking result.

Isabelle Huppert Apartment was designed in light tones, ranging from white to gold and mixing a large number of textures, such as leather or silk with custom-made carpets.

While Thierry Frémeaux’s apartment was designed as a masculine boudoir with graphic furniture in cooler tones for a more refined and sober style. Between the bathroom designed as a dressing room and the black and white tiles evoking the films of yesteryear; a true ode to the festival of yesteryear.

Each of these two Penthouse apartments is equipped with large living rooms, dining rooms, dressing rooms, offices, and a projection area, there will be objects, books, photos, and a musical playlist chosen by the two ambassadors.

In addition, Pierre-Yves Rochon, Isabelle Huppert and Thierry Frémeaux also worked with Julie Massé, perfumer at Mane, in order to create a personalized olfactory identity embodying the individuality of the personalities. For Isabelle Huppert, Julie Massé created a fragrance with notes of tuberose from Grasse. While for Thierry Frémeaux, it is a fragrance with notes of cypress, cedar and fig leaf that embody his preference.

The two-starred Chef Christian Sinicropi of the restaurant La Palme d’Or is also working on a special menu served in these apartments, for a complete experience that will match the magic of Cannes and the cinema.
