Vineyard Hotels: Château des Fines Roches, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, FranceEvery guest room in this 19th-century castle (whose name means “small rocks”) overlooks the vineyards of France’s famous wine region, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, just outside Avignon. The kingly decor includes canopied beds, and bathrooms built into the turrets. Cypress and olive trees circle the hotel’s terrace restaurant, where guests can sip regional wines and try Provençal dishes such as crunchy cod à la nîmoise. —Tom Colligan
