Each year, we ask our readers to vote for the best hotels, resorts, and safari lodges outside of the United States with 50 rooms or fewer. From St. Barths to New Zealand, from South Africa to Italy, we are pleased to share our readers’ favorite international hideaways.
Christchurch, New Zealand — Evocative seven-suite Queen Anne manor amid century-old estate gardens, 20 minutes outside Christchurch. Magnificently appointed public areas include a richly paneled dining room, library and guest lounge.
Chiusdino, Italy — Thirteenth-century stone manor house built as a resting place for pilgrims en route to Rome, converted to a lavish 15-room hotel (including six garden suites), 35 minutes southeast of Siena in a rural corner of Tuscany.
Eze Village, France — Evocative castle-hotel (formerly the private residence of H.R.H. Prince William of Sweden) clinging to a breathtaking cliff above the Mediterranean in the thousand-year-old fortress hamlet of Eze, midway between Nice and Monte Carlo.
Paris, France —Sophisticated and cozy, this 32-room (11 suites) hotel tucked off the Avenue Montaigne (renowned for its haute couture shops) retains the intimacy and comforts of the private 19th-century townhouse it once was.
