JUAN LES PINS, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Sep 18, 2014) - There's a reason why the French Riviera is one of the world's most attractive destinations. There may be glamour and high life aplenty, but the real reason people flock to its perfect white shores year in and year out is its landscape. The irresistible turquoise sea, the brilliant blue skies and the inspiring mountains and crags have ensured the area's ongoing appeal, which is why the AC Hotel Ambassadeur Antibes - Juan les Pins is working so hard to preserve it. For this private-beach hotel in Antibes has shouldered the dual responsibility of protecting the environment even as it creates unique opportunities for guests to explore it.

Much as the property takes a comprehensive approach to luxury, its efforts at eco-sensitivity fall into many categories. It covers basic steps like recycling paper and waste, and it plays a role in large-scale initiatives like the Earth Hour event, which works to reduce overall energy consumption.

Guests of this Juan les Pins beach hotel, meanwhile, will notice other, more creative endeavors as well. When they towel off, for example, they do so with 100-percent organic cotton. And when they visit those iconic white shores, they won't find an errant bottle in sight because the hotel's staff personally organizes beach-cleaning operations.

Even bigger global issues find solutions on property. The mysteries surrounding the world's declining bee population may remain, but the AC Hotel Ambassadeur Antibes is working with Un Toit Pour les Abeilles (A Roof for the Bees) to help. In return for sponsoring beehives, the hotel receives 100 honeypots full of the golden goo, which it then sells to sponsor even more hives. To go one step further, the hotel's resident pastry chef will be using this honey to create delectable desserts like honey & pine nut tart, honey crème brûlée and others.

While guests may choose to purchase a honeypot to help the cause, the hotel has also extensively researched the area to find the best eco-inspired activities. As a result, this Marineland hotel may point guests in the direction of nearby wildlife parks like Marineland where dolphins, sea lions and sharks are all on show. Or it might suggest a trip to one of the many surrounding gardens and parks. And visiting one of the 16 beaches (six of which are close to the hotel) that earned the prestigious Pavillon Bleu award for water cleanliness always makes for a pleasant outing.

The property might also suggest sightseeing on a mountain, city or electric bike (rentals are available close by), while more adventurous travelers can try an electric tuk-tuk tour or rental.

So much fresh air and exercise inevitably works up an appetite. Once again, this standout option among hotels in Old Town Antibes has a savory, sustainable solution. It can direct guests to organic food shops, organic markets and even organic farmers in the area. And, in doing so, it not only perpetuates the green movement, it gives visitors a literal taste of the region.
