La Perouse

11 quai Rauba Capeu, Nice, 06300, France

Just past the Vieille Ville, at the foot of the town's château and next to Hôtel Suisse, this secret treasure cuts into the cliff (an elevator takes you up to reception) and the best rooms—including Raoul Dufy's favorite—not only have views of the azure sea, they also look down into an intimate garden dotted with lemon trees. All rooms underwent some serious renovations in 2013 and have a breezy, inviting style that makes you think twice about leaving them for a drink at the new patio bar or a dip in the cliff-side pool. An excellent on-site restaurant serves meals year round in a candlelit garden.
