Hôtel Le Saint-Paul
Housed in a refurbished residential building dating back to the 16th century, Hôtel Le Saint-Paul is a beautiful old boutique property filled with antiques and only 16 rooms and suites, all with air-conditioning. It's right in the heart of Saint-Paul-de-Vence, a gorgeous hillside medieval town on the French Riviera
characterized by winding cobblestone roads and distant sea views. Accommodations here are gorgeously decorated with plush, elegant patterned drapery and marble bathrooms, and many have views out over the charming old streets. The fine-dining restaurant is equally fantastic, with elegant table settings and a shaded outdoor courtyard; 24-hour room service is available, unusual for a small boutique property in this part of the world. Note that the hotel closes seasonally from November 1 to March 31.
