Hotels in South of France


If the French could be summed up pithily, it would surely be as a people dedicated to eating well and living well – and nowhere more so than in the sun-drenched, fertile south of France. From the star-studded Côte d’Azur to the wild waves of the Pays Basque, this varied landscape has inspired artists, filmmakers and Michelin-flirting chefs. Kings, popes and other luminaries have left behind a bevy of perfect piles: châteaux, mansions and stone-clad cottages now happily revamped as one-of-a-kind boutique hotels.

Destinations in South of France

Languedoc Roussillon Hotels
Famed for its outstanding wines, Languedoc Roussillon is an oenophile’s dream. Eating and drinking are natural pastimes here: work up an appetite touring the local vineyards and characterful cities of Nîmes and Montpellier.
Corsica Hotels
Roman ruins and Genoese strongholds are scattered across this rugged island sizzling with Mediterranean fervour. Hike Corsica’s herb-scented maquis, take refreshing dips in azure waters and feast on a bounty of olives, wine and wild boar.
Provence-Alpes-Cote D'Azur Hotels
Dotted with pretty villages and postcard-worthy scenes of lavender fields and rolling vineyards, Provence has much to seduce: dazzling blue waters, art-loving towns and elegant rural retreats.
Montpellier Hotels
Old-world extravagance meets contemporary style in the vibrant city of Montpellier. Wander through medieval cobbled streets, explore the bustling port or sip on delicious local wines, before cosying up in boutique hotels and majestic guesthouses.
Aquitaine Hotels
Elegant, bourgeois Bordeaux lives up to its capital status of France’s most celebrated wine-producing region. From the verdant Dordogne to the oyster-rich bay of Arcachon, Aquitaine’s surrounding countryside is equally glorious.
French Basque Country
A patchwork of fields and woodland, the French Pays Basque shares a distinct identity with its Spanish neighbour. Expect pine-covered hills, melt-in-the-mouth charcuterie and some of the country’s best surf.
Midi-Pyrénées Hotels
Time has paused for breath in the Midi-Pyrénées’ medieval villages and pitted mountains. Nestled in unspoilt countryside, secluded Gascon houses and converted châteaux brim with old-world elegance.
