Is there anything dreamier than a glorious French getaway? Although this year has gotten off to a rocky start, hotels in France are now open for the summer. If you’re dying to hop across the pond and soak up some sunshine, you might just get that beautiful break you’ve been hoping for. From Paris to Provence, these are the hotspots you should head to.
Who doesn’t love a little glamour? The breathtaking Fauchon L’Hotel Paris can be found within a charming Haussmannien building in Paris’ Madeleine. Designed by the Parisian architect, Richard Martinet, and draped in its signature hot pink, the hotel is the epitome of modern glam.
Fauchon is both fun and fabulous for foodies. Enjoy a chic brunch, elegant afternoon, or drop in for cocktails at Glam Hour while enjoying your Parisian experience.
Following a fantastic refurbishment, Maisons Pariente’s, Hotel Lou Pinet in Saint-Tropez has just reopened. This gorgeous five-star hotel is incredibly close to the gorgeous beaches, has its own private gardens and a large sea-green swimming pool. The natural and earthy décor is as calming as it is chic.
Boasting the dreamy Beefbar Restaurant, bars, and the highly sought after Tata Harper Spa, rejuvenate, revel, and enjoy in the secluded gem of Saint-Tropez.
When it comes to hotels in France, Maisons Pariente certainly know what wellness-lovers want. Having recently reopened after a gorgeous redevelopment, Hotel Crillon le Brave is breathtaking. This five-star hideaway is set in the natural landscape of the region and away from city chaos.
The Provençal spa can be found in the 18th Century former stables. Gorgeous natural décor and an abundance of lavender make the perfect partnership for a relaxing retreat.
When you want glamour, you want the Cote-d'Azur's infamous palace hotel, the Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat. This Four Seasons haunt has been a favourite with hotspot celebrities for centuries to come. As one of the Rivera’s finest spots, enjoy Michelin-starred eateries, a sizzling pool, and second-to-none views of the coastline.
Vacation like Elizabeth Taylor and enjoy chic surroundings, stunning décor, and indulge in your own cabana at Club Dauphin.
When in Provence, who wouldn’t want to stay in a chateau? Found in the heart of Gordes with panoramic views over the valley and lavender fields, La Bastide de Gordes is a rarity. The best hotels in France will always have charm and character, but you’ll find so much more here. Rustic décor mixed with impeccable service ensures your stay will be sensational.
Dinner at L’Orangerie or Clover Gordes followed by a digestif in La Bar de la Bastide or Le TIGrr and a trip to the spa is exactly what you need for an unforgettable summer.
Does anything quite beat a beautiful listed French building? Nestled amongst five acres of majestic landscape, Hotel Chais Monnet really is something special. Set within the former 19th century warehouses and cellars of the Monnet Cognac cooperage, feel transformed enjoying a tipple in the timeless bar, strolling around the grounds or soaking up the sun, poolside.
The glorious gastronomic destination that it is, Cognac will also be home to the Michelin Star Revelation Ceremony in January 2021.
If we have to pick a favourite of all hotels in France – and, of course, we wouldn’t – we’d be tempted with this one. The exquisitely refurbished, world-renowned Hôtel de Paris really does speak for itself. Expertly located on the Place du Casino, find a sensational hotel in the heart of Monte-Carlo.
Devour the beach, stroll along the harbour, try your luck at the Casino de Monte-Carlo, and, of course, Michelin-starred dining at the hotel itself, while truly embracing the glamour of Monaco.
