Jardins Secrets

3 Rue Gaston Maruejols
Nîmes , France
011 33 46 684-8264

Despite being in downtown Nîmes, jardins secrets feels like a romantic rural refuge, with 14 guest rooms and a small swimming pool shaded by orange and olive trees hidden behind a pink façade. Antiques, bowls of freshly snipped roses, and silk-curtained bathing alcoves with freestanding rolltop tubs make this one of the most desirable addresses west of the Rhône. It’s an ideal base for touring the area’s ruins: a first-century A.D. amphitheater and the impressive temple La Maison Carrée are just a short stroll away.
