Au Vieux Panier


Ensconced in the heart of Marseilles (5mins from the town centre, 5mins from the sea), this 17th-century boutique has turned its half-dozen rooms into veritable exhibits by giving an equal number of vaunted French daubers free reign to decorate as they please, thereby enabling guests to "sleep in an artwork", though technically that's an idea Tracey Emin had years ago.
