NUMBER OF ROOMS: 3 rooms and 3 suites
CLOSED ANNUALLY: Open year round

THE STORY: The Fragonard triplets – heiresses to the illustrious Grasse perfumer – are once again showing off their nose for luxury! After sniffing out new opportunities and venturing into the world of cosmetics, fashion and even lifestyle, Anne, Agnès and Françoise Costa settled down in Arles to open up a fragrant hotel. Hidden behind a cut stone façade with sage-green shutters on a charming southern street near Arles’ Roman amphitheater, you’ll find six bedrooms inside this three-story building. Named Billet Doux, Étoile and Soleil, these small, monastic and well-designed spaces are dressed in terra cotta tomette tiles and antique furniture unearthed by Agnès and Françoise – wicker chairs, walnut headboards, baroque mirrors; and the majestic Rêves d’Arles, Belle de Nuit and Secret Absolu suites combine moulded ceilings, marble fireplaces, cheeky kitchens and private terraces! All of which were dreamt up by Be-poles Studio and the architect Renzo Wieder. Want more? On the ground floor, you’ll find a chic boutique where you can buy one of the house’s iconic perfumes, cosmetics and decor objects… In short, a very sweet-smelling stay! Double rooms starting at €100 a night.

TOILETRIES: The Vrai line of Fragonard products, of course (body wash, shampoo, body lotion and soap).
BREAKFAST: No, but the suites are equipped with a kitchen and hotel is just a four-minute walk from the cute Bazar Café.
LITTLE LUXURY: Taking in the Camargue sunshine on the rooftop terrace overlooking Arles.
