Le Saint Paul
And once again Saint-Paul-de-Vence, because it was so beautiful: The medieval town has quite a few things to offer, especially galleries for the numerous artists that have settled in the tight alleys.The Le Saint Paul is located in one of those alleys with the old cobblestone and the flowerpots, in a house from the 16th century that is just as romantic inside as it is outside: Small rooms full of French country house style par excellence, plus an open fireplace, silk fabrics and canopy beds. Here life is not art, but pure luxury.On the cosy terrace they serve Provencal cuisine in a personal atmosphere, the tea is served in front of the crackling fire, and you can read a good book or have an interesting conversation. If you still prefer to go out, you can go to the small art galleries in the perhaps most beautiful place in Provence. Doubles starting at 250,- euros per night.
Nice Garden Hotel
In the middle of the busy city, in the middle of boutiques, pedestrian zone and 200 meters away from the beach, in the middle of the old town. What can you expect? We take a look behind the heavy iron gates of the townhouse from the 19th century and marvel: Absolute peace! A wild garden with plants that are climbing up the facade. Flowers that can compete with any English garden. An orange tree that branches out to the breakfast table and makes you want to grab your fruit plate. And nine rooms with a view onto the green oasis. Some even have elegant swing doors leading outside. Never come in the winter here, or you would certainly miss something! For example a few idle hours on the wooden benches with a good book in the hand. If you don't care about green stuff, you can stare at the high ceilings, admire the stucco at the walls or just fall asleep with the gentle colours around you. Doubles starting at 65,- euros a night.
In the past they wanted to get out, today you want to get in: The former prison has exchanged the metal bars for antique furniture. No one wants to break out, any more, since the view onto the sea has it all: Farsightedness, keen insight and outlook on the future all inclusive. We urge you to get a room with sea view!The interior is entirely dedicated to the French countryside, with gentle colours and marble baths. The restaurant, too, follows the excellent tradition of French cuisine: In the lemon cake you will search for the file in vain, however, you might be sitting in the garden near a cliff, surrounded by lemon treas or even on the terrace, where you can enjoy a romantic candlelight dinner. Moreover there are pool, fitness center and Jacuzzi, but should you still feel imprisoned, you may explore the beach, which is only a quick dash away. Doubles starting at 200,- euros a night.
