Nice, Marseille + The Côte d'Azur

Hotels in Nice, Marseille + The Côte d'Azur

One of the more affordable hotels in St.-Tropez, “Le Sube” is situated directly on the Vieux Port above the Café de Paris. The exterior is typical of Provençal by-the-sea architecture, with smooth stucco walls, wooden shutters, and metal balustrades.

Spend the night, or just dine at the on-site restaurant, which has paintings by Calder, Klee, and Miró.

A 19th-century mansion and two private villas surrounded by 22 acres of gardens on the tip of the Cap d’Antibes peninsula. The grounds include a saltwater pool, seaside spa, private landing pier, and clay tennis courts.

At the Zen-inspired property, 15 suites give onto a terraced garden overlooking the Mediterranean. To reach the nearby beach, hop on one of the hotel's free bikes or take the shuttle-a Bentley, no less.

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.
