Fodor's Review

Occupying the site of an ancient Knights Templar fortress and set amid acres of greenery designed by Jean Mus, this hilltop domain with its noteworthy restaurant, ecological spa, and helicopter pad, welcomes you with light, airy public salons (where afternoon tea and rare champagnes are offered) and luxurious guest quarters that include two- and three-bedroom villas accented with beautiful antiques. But Le Saint-Martin restaurant on site is perhaps the best reason to come

here: Chef Yannick Franques's creations are superb, and the panoramic terrace views over Old Vence to the Baie des Anges are eye-popping. Famous guests often stay here (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, among others), so servers are used to discreet excellence.
