La Bastide Gourmande

About this Hotel

Price From $72

In the hills south of the medieval village of Saint-Paul-de-Vence, but less than two miles from the beaches at Cagnes, the friendly hotel offers clean, colorful rooms; a good restaurant; and a lovely pool with a great view of the classic Provenççal countryside.

There's even a boulodrome, should you feel inclined to indulge in a game of petanque.

It's an excellent deal, especially when you consider how much even the most basic of lodgings cost down by the water's edge.

The 12 rooms are a little on the small side, but each has a different theme, such as Coquelicot (with bright red poppies on the curtains), Bretagne (a life buoy on the wall), and even Disney (this is a room for kids).

In summer, chirping cicadas are pretty much guaranteed.
