Les Jardins Secrets

Boutique hotel in Nîmes

You'll go giddy over the exuberant, ever-so-slightly OTT interior of this 18th-century maison bourgeoise (stately house) with 14 rooms. It’s dripping with luxury, from canopied beds, chandeliers and antique clawfoot baths to a Roman-style bathhouse, statues and divine gardens – you'll either love it or loathe it. For these prices, you’d think they could include breakfast and parking (extra €28 each).
