Fodor's Expert Review Hôtel des Deux Rocs

Pl. Font d'Amont, Seillans, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 83440, France

Picture a tiny square with a trickling fountain, venerable plane trees, green valley views, and two massive rocks posing, sculpturelike, where they fell aeons ago—a magical place for a hotel, and it's almost gilding the lily that the hotel should be small and personal to the point of eccentricity. From the fireplace in the salon to the bright, mixed fabrics in the rooms, to the dainty breakfast this property exudes Provençal style. All bathrooms have been smartened up with fresh tile and updated fixtures. Ask for Room No. 10, which has corner views of the idyllic place. Chef Lorenzo Pouillet whips up some real winners, including pasta gratin with truffles, sardine parcels on a bed of lettuce, and ham cooked in straw; for dessert, indulge in lavender-scented crème brûlée. You can dine in the romantic stone-and-beam restaurant or on the terrace under the trees by the fountain.
