“Resorts up and down the Côte d’Azur, from Toulon to Monaco, are starting to cater to kitty tastes,” said Fodor’s editor Sebastian Martin. One resort in Saint-Tropez, for example, has increased the number of tuna dishes on its room service menu from one to seven and a four-star hotel in Nice now offers plush carpeting in suites that previously had tile floors.

Fodor’s reports that feline travel to the region is up 230% this year.
