My husband and I spent the final two nights of a three week trip to France at this gem of a hotel. Being at Le Hameau was like stepping back in time eighty years or so. The rooms, the public spaces and the gardens were charming beyond all belief. For us, Le Hameau's proximity to St.-Paul-de-Vence was especially advantageous. We were able to walk to the popular hilltop village in the morning, beating the crowds, and were then able to return to Le Hameau in the afternoon for a relaxing swim. Later, it was just a short walk back to St. Paul to fabulous restaurants like La Colombe d'Or and Le Tillieul. After nine days of driving, it was wonderful to just park the car and enjoy Le Hameau's proximity to such great sites. Breakfast on the outdoor terrace was especially fresh and lovely. My only hope is that, if I'm ever fortunate enough to return to Le Hameau, nothing whatsoever has changed in my absence!
