Les Lodges Sainte-Victoire

2250 rte. Cézanne, Le Tholonet, 13100, France

Set on a picture-perfect 10 acres of woods, olive groves, and vineyards just outside Aix, with Cézanne-immortalized Mont Ste-Victoire as a backdrop, this hotel raises the bar for lodging in the region. Not at all your rustic country inn, the sophisticated style is a tasteful mix of modern deluxe with touches of Baroque elegance. Rooms are handsomely appointed, and those on the ground floor have spacious private terraces overlooking the pool; upstairs suites have mountain views from the bathtub. If you're staying a week or more (a lifetime wouldn't be too long), renting one of the lodges is the way to go. The final word in luxury, these four sleek, modern structures—each completely private—can house up to eight people and provide every modern convenience, including a kitchen, dining room, terrace with tremendous views, and private heated pool. Guests in the hotel and lodges have access to the gleaming full-service Cinq Monde spa.
