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.
Each hotel selected for its unique charm by Lulu the founder.
