This exquisite pair of Greek villas, set in lush gardens on a rocky promontory overlooking the Mediterranean, has been run by the Passédat family since 1917. A member of the Relais & Chateaux group, it is undoubtedly Marseille's most exclusive hotel, with corresponding prices. In addition, almost everything costs extra, including breakfast on the terrace instead of in the restaurant. (That said, you must try the delicious homemade jams that arrive with your croissants.) Luxe touches abound—there's a heated sea-water pool, AC, private safes, and, for ease of mind, phone numbers of airlines and consulates programmed into the telephones. Each of the 16 rooms and suites (named after characters in the stories of local hero Marcel Pagnol) is unique, with decor ranging from classical to postmodern—and all are sumptuous. The hotel has a renowned, two Michelin-star, ferociously expensive, French haute restaurant with an even pricier wine list.
