This was one of the best hotels we’ve stayed in recently.

The hotel has sweeping views of the Vieux Port and the city, and the walls of windows allow the seaside breeze in.

The breakfast was our favorite hotel breakfast in Europe, full of Mediterranean fare like the world’s best ratatouille, marinated vegetables, fresh cheeses and local honey. I neglected to bring my camera to the dining room, but trust me – it’s delicious!

The trade-off for having such views is that it’s not right in the middle of the city. The main areas were about a ten minute bus ride away.
