Finding the Keys

Michael Carroll examines the literary history and enduring allure of Key West.

A garden in Provence may not be what you’re thinking about at the moment, but it’s one of the many pleasures of 28 à Aix, a hôtel particulier recently opened in the center of Aix-en-Provence. Perfection rules at this exquisitely furnished (and scented) 17th-century mansion. Breakfast and lunch can be had in the voluptuous little garden out back, afternoon tea in the Rococoesque salon. Four guest rooms only, each a triumph of wit, style, and comfort. The very reasonable rates begin at $315 a night. At 28 Rue du 4 Septembre; 33-4/42-54-82-01; 28aaix.com.
