Le Mas Candille

Bd. Clément-Rebuffel, Mougins, 06250, France

Nestled in a 10-acre private park, this 19th-century mas (farmhouse) has been cleverly transformed into an ultraluxurious Relais & Chateaux hotel with antique wallpapers, "reissued" vintage furniture, and many other high-gloss touches that make the place Elle Decor–worthy. Rooms—all done in cool colors and country chic—are very refined, with a profusion of pillows, heated towels, and all the hidden electrical hookups you could possibly need. The Michelin-star restaurant (closed Monday and Tuesday October–April; no lunch Monday May–September) is the well-ordered domain of Chef David Chauvac. His succulent menus cause quite a stir in gastronomic circles; watch for items like Angus prime rib, tomato and parsley bonbon, sauce soubise in a nest of potatoes (for two; €110). In addition to the main house and the gourmet restaurant, there's a 19-room bastide, a six-suite villa, and a Shiseido spa.
