Le Delos

Île de Bendor
Île de Bendor , France
33 4 94 05 90 90

The compound consists of eight adorable maisonettes with private gardens that Le Delos manages, but brands separately; a second, defunct hotel that is a terrible eyesore; four restaurants; a diving school, and a handful of eccentric shops, one specializing in handblown glass pacifiers. Both the maisonettes and Le Delos are something less - a lot less, actually - than full-service hotels. Spend too much time, i.e., more than one night, and you begin to notice that Bendor is being relaunced on a wing, a prayer, and not a lot of sous.
