This charming little hotel offers an affordable and peaceful alternative to the storied, super-luxe resorts dotted along the Cote d’Azur.

Located near the pretty art village of St-Paul-de-Vence – yet only a half hour from Nice, with the bonus of free parking – Les Vergers makes an excellent base for first time visitors seeing the sights or stopping on a South of France road trip.  

Perks include absolute tranquility, and lovely views over the countryside; light-filled rooms and balconies overlook the sizable pool terrace and wooded hills beyond, serenaded by cicadas.  

It’s not for party animals, being some way from the Riviera’s nightclubs and beach clubs: instead, there are peaceful balconies for sitting out on balmy evenings, and classic black and white decor. There’s no restaurant onsite, but the helpful English-speaking owners go out of their way to offer great suggestions.
