[Luxus Magazine] France’s finest five-star hotels

Nestled in idyllic, typically French landscapes, wine estates or Provençal landscapes, these five-star hotels promise unique moments. As well as their exceptional setting, the gastronomy, relaxation facilities, sumptuous rooms and on-site experiences are well worth the diversions.

The Royal Champagne is the perfect representation of uninhibited luxury. Located less than two hours from the capital and therefore ideal for a weekend close to Paris, this exceptional five-star hotel overlooks the vineyards of the Champagne region. Isolated and calm, the hotel is recognisable by its modern façade and immense panoramic terrace. The 47 rooms and suites, overlooking the listed vineyards, have been elegantly decorated by Sybille de Margerie. Soothed by the setting, you naturally head for the hotel’s immense spa – no less than 1500 m2 – where you can book an expert treatment, before eliminating your toxins in the hammam and sauna. There are also two swimming pools, one indoor and one outdoor with breathtaking views. On the gastronomic side, the brasserie Le Bellevue and the Michelin-starred restaurant offer tasty dishes and a fine wine list, including some great champagnes from the owners.

An icon of the south, just a few kilometres from the village of Le Puy Sainte Réparade, Villa Coste nestles in the heart of a 200-hectare organic vineyard. The 28 suites spread across the estate are sublimely decorated in immaculate white, with contemporary designer furniture. 10 of them have private swimming pools, the height of happiness when the sun heats up on the terrace! In the luxurious spa, you can discover the establishment’s signature rituals, featuring Himalayan salt scrubs and hot mud treatments in the hammams, floatation beds and affusion showers. But Villa la Coste is best known worldwide for its contemporary art centre, which takes at least half a day to visit. Louise Bourgeois, Calder, Le Corbusier, Fernand Léger, Picasso, Tadao Ando, Jean-Michel Othoniel, Damien Hirst and many other major artists exhibit their works around an astonishing circuit that should be visited at least once in a lifetime. After all that effort, you can take advantage of this exceptional venue’s extensive gastronomic offering, including a Michelin-starred restaurant led by top chef Hélène Darroze, a spectacular Argentinian grill by Francis Mallmann, the Italian bistro Vanina and the café-restaurant Tadao Ando…
