Hôtel du ClosLocated in the heart of the village of Le Rouret, about 20 miles inland from Nice and a 15-minute drive from the perfume capital of Grasse, Hôtel du Clos is a charming 11-room country inn spread across two stone buildings—one of which once served as a sheepfold—that date from the 19th century. Hôtel du Clos was launched in 2008 by the Ettlinger family and today is popular with foodies interested in taking advantage of the inn’s half-board option. This includes continental breakfast right at the hotel and lunch or dinner at one of two restaurants owned by the same family: the brasserie-style Bistro du Clos or Michelin-starred Le Clos Saint Pierre, a few minutes' walk away. Even those who aren’t obsessed with gastronomy will find this intimate property attractive for its modern Provence-inspired rooms and suites and its quiet, low-key elegance.
