Le Petit Nice

Anse de la Maldormé, Corniche J.-F.-Kennedy, Marseille, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 13007, France

On a rocky promontory overlooking the sea, this fantasy villa was bought from a countess in 1917 and converted to a sleek hotel-restaurant, where the Passédat family has been getting it right ever since, especially in the famous restaurant. Father and son man Provence's only three-Michelin-star kitchen (one of the coast's best), creating sea-anemone beignets, fresh fish roasted whole, and an entire €170 menu dedicated to Bouille Abaisse. Most rooms are minimalist, with some art deco–cum–postmodern touches, while outside the fetching heated pool is illuminated at night by antique gaslight fixtures.
