Fodor's Expert Review Le Pigonnet

5 av. du Pigonnet, Aix-en-Provence, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 13100, France Fodor's Choice

Cézanne painted Ste-Victoire from what is now the large flower-filled terrace of this enchanting abode, and you can easily imagine former guests Princess Caroline, Iggy Pop, and Clint Eastwood swanning their way through the magnificent, pool-adorned, topiary-accented garden or relaxing in the spacious, light-filled guest rooms. For sheerest Provençal luxe, this place can't be beat: baby-soft plush rugs, balconies, and a handsome contemporary classic decor. The restaurant's terrace spills out onto a sculpted green, but the inside dining salon is equally pleasant on a rainy day, as is the spa, thanks to its dazzlingly elegant chandeliers and large picture windows.
