La Maison du Frêne Côte d'Azur, France

“A fabulous, vibrantly decorated and beautifully run addition to the choice of places to stay in the hills above Cannes and Nice. The late 18th century house faces the town's great ash tree, planted in the reign of François I and captured in paint by Soutine. Inside, the imaginative decoration is ravishing, the five suites large, airy and luxurious, the breakfast delicious.”
