A personal favourite, this ‘Hotel de Charme’ was formerly a popular Michelin-starred restaurant, until Jean Pierre Novi, his sister and her husband decided they wanted a more peaceful life. Now they preside over this small hotel, with just six guest rooms/suites. The setting is stupendous, in the valley under the hilltop village of Les Baux. It is possible for non-residents to have dinner here if they reserve well in advance. English spoken.

Useful information: Rooms €180-€200; troglodyte suite €290; breakfast €20; dinner €55. Children under 10 years old not accepted. Hotel bookings for minimum 2 nights. Closed November to end of February.
