Indulge in haute cuisine and lounge in luxury afterward at the magnificent Maison Pic in Valence, France.
While this chic 15-room boutique hotel could easily be overshadowed by the acclaimed restaurant that sits below it, make no mistake: Maison Pic is itself a destination.
Needless to say, the dining here is superb: led by chef Anne-Sophie Pic - the only woman in France to boast three Michelin stars - Pic is an ultra-modern restaurant steeped in local culinary tradition, while the highway-inspired "Le 7" bistro serves up inspired European fare next door.
Inside the hotel, the spacious lounge invites exploration, with antique furniture, funky decor, and contemporary design throughout. Meanwhile, the 15 elegantly appointed rooms - as well as a secluded pool and garden out back - ensure privacy and relaxation after a day of cultural and culinary exploration.
Lovers of art, history, and cuisine alike will cherish their time spent at this local landmark near the banks of the river Rhône...
