As if you need yet another reason to wile away time on the Mediterranean shores of southern France, the 18th-century chateau Baudon de Mauny is tucked into a cobblestone backstreet of Old Montpellier–and has been owned and run by the same family for seven generations. It has everything you could possibly want from a French chateau packed into its five beautiful guest rooms: storied history, eccentric charm and cutting edge. Modern furnishings and different Cole & Sons wallpaper in every room mixes with long, heavy drapes, frilly wall moldings and antique portraits. The French are so good at this! Hideaway tip: there’s also a just-as-stylish pied-à-terre upstairs with two bedrooms and a full kitchen.
