Fodor's Review

On a rocky promontory overlooking the sea, this fantasy villa was bought from a countess in 1917 and converted to a sleek hotel-restaurant; happily, the Passédat family has been getting it right ever since, especially in the famous restaurant. Father and son man Provence's only three-Michelin-star kitchen (one of the coast's best), creating sea-anemone beignets, fresh fish roasted whole, and an entire €170 menu dedicated to Bouille Abaisse (the restaurant is closed Sunday and Monday). Most rooms are minimalist, with some Art Deco–cum–postmodern touches, while outside the fetching heated pool is illuminated at night by antique gaslight fixtures.
