L'Auberge des Seigneurs et du Lion d'Or

Pl. du Frêne, Vence, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 06140, France

Dating to the 17th century and the only hotel set within Vence's old walls, this former stagecoach inn has an ambience à la François Premier and the owners go out of their way to make your stay memorable. Upstairs, guest rooms are airy and bright, with drapes, bedspreads, and bureau runners in matching hues de provence. Some have great views, as does the breakfast terrace. Downstairs, the restaurant—all copper pots and wood trim—has a rustic, frozen-in-amber charm; specializing in roast meats (the chicken prepared on a spit of vines instead of wood is magnifique), it's very popular, so be sure to book well in advance.
