Hotels in Nice, Marseille + The Côte d'Azur

Ever since Brigitte Bardot vacationed on these shores, St.-Tropez has been the French Riviera’s most glamorous destination. But for guests on less than a movie-star budget, Les Palmiers, a three-story house set in a thicket of tropical trees, has 25 cheerful, affordable rooms.

Hi

This 30-room, 11th-century property is a remote Riviera getaway - if you don't mind communal meals and friendly wine-making monks.

Just behind the Quai de Rive Neuve, in the newly posh district of St.-Victor, this artsy inn has four simple guest rooms, a tapas bar, and a shop that sells furniture designed by owner Annick Lestrohan.

This 125-room hotel (a national historic monument on the Promenade des Anglais) is noted for its pink dome that overlooks Nice’s Baie des Anges.
