HIP Hotels France

A book - the word 'guide' does not do it justice - that collects some of the country's most stylish hotels and illustrates them in such a lavish detail that all you want to do on flicking through its pages is cross the Channel at the earliest opportunity

France has it all — a rich history, an incredibly varied
geography, a gastronomic culture that is unsurpassed,
and a tradition of good living that remains blissfully
untainted by the stresses of modern life. It also offers an
unparalleled choice of world-class places to stay — from
medieval Chateaux and grand city hotels to rural farm-
houses and Alpine chalets — and, of course, the very latest
in interior design.

HIP HOTELS: FRANCE brings together the most authen-
tically individual of these hotels in the country's choicest
destinations. Choose the futuristic vision of Jean Nouvel or
the hearty hospitality of an Alpine farmhouse, a remote
fortress on the Breton coast or the hip modernity of Le
Corbusier's Unité d'Habitation in Marseilles, a Mecca for
devotees of modernist architecture. Some are established,
some virtually unknown, but every one of these hotels is
a unique response to the geography, cuisine and design
heritage of its location.

So whether you are an adventurer, a gourmet or a
design aficionado — or all of the above — HIP HOTELS:
FRANCE will enable you to plan your itinerary through
city, town, coast and countryside. This third volume in the
phenomenally successful HIP HOTELS series is once more
guaranteed to set you dreaming. It has all the slick of CITY

and all the variety of ESCAPE — all in one amazing country.
