What better way to experience Old Haut-de-Cagnes's grand castle views than to stay in an acclaimed 13th-century manor that is perched on the ramparts of the Grimaldi fortress? Completely renovated in 2012 by the Ivarsson family, leaving no detail unturned to complete the storybook allure, the château is where you can savor a medieval yet bright atmosphere. Rooms, named after artists connected to the village, are gorgeously Provençal and look out over the Old Town and
on to the sea. (The rooms also have bathrooms so luxe you'll want to take them home with you!) The manor's main restaurant features a sliding ceiling that opens up to the heavens above. If you're arriving at the town square by shuttle bus, the hotel's voiturier will be sent to pick up your luggage; there's also an alley where cars can drop off guests.
