L'Hotel Sous les Figuiers

Its name means "hotel under the fig trees," and sure enough, there are 10 rooms each with a private yard and a fig tree for harvesting.

About this Hotel

Price From $150

This low-key lodging is in a residential area just a couple of minutes from the center of town. The place is spic-and-span, from the lushly painted walls to the earth-tone tiles in the bathrooms.

The 13 modern rooms are softened with quilted bedcovers and restored antiques. If you like the faux finish on the armoire, learn how to do it yourself at a workshop in the art studio.

The friendly owner lives on the premises and encourages guests to get to know each other over a game of chess or an evening aperitif, but you can also just lounge by the pool on your own or stretch out under your fig tree and take a nap.

Details Doubles from $150 (€105).
