This hotel is one of the most mythical of the twentieth century, especially for its guests shortly after it opened in 1913. Then came the First World War and the building was used for other purposes, causing the ruin of Henri Negresco. Afterwards, there was a continued period of decline.

The Espace Saint Louis is a cultural and artistic center in the historic district of Avignon. It was built near the Palace of the Popes in Avignon, initially founded by a Jesuit novitate as a religious building. It's quiet, with a sixteenth century cloister. Over the years, the building was secularized and became a military hospital and nursing home. After the great renewal of the 90s, it reopened as a hotel and cultural centre. Theatre and concert tickets are sold here for the city's famous festival. The renewal was the work of the famous architect Jean Nouvel (who also built the Agbar Tower in Barcelona).
The hotel is located at the entrance to the Luberon region. It is easy to access from the A51 motorway. It is situated within walking distance to the city center and railway station. Its location allows you to visit the gorges of Verdon Forcalquier. The property features a swimming pool, a bar, snacks 24 hours, a terrace and closed parking.
The Mercure hotel is a modern building next to the Palace of the Popes, in the historical heart of Avignon. It has been integrated well among the surrounding medieval buildings, but it was built before the laws of conservation of architectural heritage were put in place, and UNESCO named the city centre a World Heritage Site. The hotel has 87 air-conditioned rooms with phones and private bathrooms. The hotel has a pool, perfect for hot summer hours. If you come in July, you have to book months in advance, because there is a very popular theater festival. Below is a bar with a lounge but the restaurants around have much more charm.
Welcome to the Cavendish Hotel, a four star hotel in the heart of Cannes, only two minutes walk from the city center. It has impeccable service and high quality, contemporary decor. It's very beautiful and refined. We recommend the round bedroom if available - it's fantastic!
On our last visit to Aix-en-Provence, we looked for somewhere that was a little out of town so we could enjoy the wonderful Provencal countryside. The house is painted in a charming reddish color (this the name) and the owner was very cool to us. They serve breakfast on the terrace, as you can see in the photo, and is a very memorable experience.
The Hotel Kyriad Avignon Palais Des Papes is in an ideal downtown location in the beautiful Old Town Square in front of the great opera house and very close to the Palace of the Popes. You can definitely visit the great landmarks of this historical and cultural city and will be impressed without a doubt.
The Mercure Hotel is right next to the Benezet Bridge, a UNESCO World Heritage point. On one side you can access the Palace of Popes in less than five minutes on foot, and on the other side you have the bridge, which is the other famous city attraction, only two minutes away. Below, there are some good restaurants, which I recommend because it's always better to eat in a chain restaurant because their menus don't change that much.
There are a total of 87 rooms and a small garden. The conference room can hold 120 people.
The hotel has wifi included in the price. Children under 12 can sleep in their parents rooms free. Only one child per room. The rooms cost between 140 and 200 euros a night, according to what time of year it is, and with breakfast and internet access it tends to be around 160 euros a night.
Villa Massalia is a very new hotel, with a harmonious atmosphere. It's near the racetrack - in fact, I think that some rooms open directly onto the track, which is great if races are your thing! It's also near the sea, and the beach is just five minutes walk from the hotel. This applies even to reach the famous Borly park which is an extension of the racetrack, and therefore is very close to the hotel! There are some shops around, especially on the embankment near the beach and restaurants. It is a perfect hotel for a relaxing family holiday, and while it's not particularly close to the centre of the city, it's easy enough to get in and out.
This beautiful establishment is between the city of Cannes and the field next to Grasse. The Citea Résidentiel de Mougins Bungalow offers space and comfort at all times to enjoy your vacation, so it can be unforgettable. The staff is amazing, and there to help you during your stay.
The Hotel Cannes is truly unique, as it's the only hotel in the Croisette that has such a beautiful, spacious garden. There's a wooden bridge connecting the hotel, bar and restaurant to the Croisette boulevard. The restaurant is a charming place to enjoy a drink or dinner in a calm environment, despite its proximity to the Croisette. You can enjoy a magnificent view of the sea from your room.
I have ordered the express menu for 14 €. You can choose a hot dish from the menu and a dessert. In my case, I ordered a steak and a dessert-like candied fruit Panacotta, they were very good. The fire, which I thought was a wood-burning stove, turned out to be gas, but it was very effective and, with the deluge that fell outside, it was much appreciated.

The Camping les Mouettes (gulls in French) is the height of Martigues on the Mediterranean coast. It is very well located, and once you arrive, you will not need the car at all. The beach of Sainte Croix is a beautiful cove, very natural, with pine trees that give shade. Right outside the camping space, there is a little convenience store, which naturally is more expensive than the supermarket. However, if you only come with basic food, you will probably need some fruits and vegetables. There are a few restaurants around too. The campsite has places to put your tent, and rent mobile homes. Some have direct view of the path of customs, and the sea! During the summer, children 12 and under can participate in a lot of free activities organized by the campsite.

It can be noisy in summer here because people gather to meet in the square. There are three cafes with terraces. Le Grand Hotel de la Poste is a former hostel which belonged to the post office.

The Novotel belongs to the Accor group. It is located next to the motorway which goes from Lyon to Marseille. There was some noise but once you are inside the room, you do not hear much. Next door is a clinic and on the other side there is another cheaper hotel. You are a 10 minute drive away from the center of Avignon, and it´s not a particularly pretty place, since there is no village nearby.

This is the central station in Avignon. It's in front of the Cours Jean Jaures, that is to say, the walls at the entrance of the historical part of the city.

It tends to be expensive for just one afternoon, but a lot of people come during summer. They don't sleep in hotels because there are festivals and they're all booked up, so there can be a solution if you're there without a lot of money.
