Histoires de BastideQuaint, cozy, and more like a home than a hotel, at least in terms of appearance, Histoires de Bastide is an adorable rustic-chic guesthouse in the historic village of Tourrettes-sur-Loup, about a 45-minute drive from Nice. The hotel features four elegantly minimalist rooms, all with country-style wood floors and furniture. All four rooms face south and look out onto the sea in the distance, and two have Jacuzzi jets in the bathtubs. Breakfast, included in room rates, is served in a bright kitchen-dining area or out on a sea-facing balcony; the morning spread includes all sorts of juices, breads, lovely French pastries, and homemade preserves. And while the Histoires de Bastide's location on the northwestern end of town makes it a good base for those who want to go out for a wander, guests who prefer to relax in the comfort of their own rooms can arrange for a professional massage therapist to drop in for a restorative rub-down.
