This enchanting little hotel is situated in the heart of Paris, in the shadow of the Louvre. It is so close to St. Germain l'Auxerrois that you can hear the hymns from the former "King's Church" and see the Gothic windows from your bedroom. In the cellar there is an old printing press that was used to print illegal leaflets during the French Revolution. It is said that the reception area was once the Café Momus (a debating club of the revolutionaries) and it was here that Puccini allowed parts of his opera "La Boheme" to be played. Breakfast, true to Parisian custom, is served in your suite. The hotel is air conditioned. Sophie Aulnette has managed the hotel for the past 10 years and personally attends to her guests' comfort. Tickets to local museums and other attractions can be purchased at a shop near the hotel.
The small 4-star hotel on the Quai du Port is a bit quaint – with furniture in the style of the 1950's. However standing on the balcony in one of the upper floors, you will be overwhelmed by the magnificent view of one of Europe's oldest ports. Almost everything in the historic town can be reached on foot. Although the hotel is located in the middle of the hustle and bustle, the rooms are quiet – thanks to good windows and quiet air conditioning. The staff is friendly.

The large, friendly estate is situated among fruit trees and vineyards between Arles and Nimes where the regions of Provence and Camargue meet. The bedrooms on the top floor are simple yet elegant with white washed walls, cast iron beds and period furniture. The overhanging roof provides welcome shade on hot summer days. A swimming pool is available.
The auberge is situated in a huge garden just one kilometre from Moustiers, a charming little village on the backdrop of high mountains. Breakfast is excellent – and not just compared to the standard French breakfast. The host is a passionate collector of antiques, old watches, and historic home appliances, so you will find such items all around the premises. The tranquil atmosphere is remarkable at this hotel, which is an ideal starting point for excursions to the Grand Canyon.

The 200-year-old villa tucked away in the hills above Vence is an absolute gem. Guests are captivated by its superb setting, stunning views, attractive bedrooms, lovely swimming pool, and, most of all, by its charming hostess, Kristin. Kristin was born in East Germany, moving to Burgundy after she married her French husband, Fredric. They both dreamed of living near Vence and opening a bed and breakfast, so they bought this large villa to use both as their own home and as a place to welcome guests. Each of the three bedrooms has its own private entrance opening onto a flagstone terrace. The rooms are comfortable but not huge, and each has a large window with a splendid view of the sea and mountains. Each is similar in decor except for the color scheme, which differs from room to room. Two junior suites are also available.
