A five-star France stay at 19th-century mansion turned luxury hotel overlooking the Pyrénées - with breakfast and optional spa treatment offer

A rather wonderful choice for gourmands and spa lovers looking for ultra-stylish digs in the French city of Pau, this 19th-century mansion is set in over two hectares of mature parkland. Not only will you have the dazzling Pyrénées Mountains right on your doorstep, but also you’ll be just 90-minutes from the both the famous ski resorts and the spectacular Basque Coast.

Built between 1865 and 1870 (a time when the English nobility and glitterati flocked to Pau to seek respite from the damp and cold winters), the exterior is as fairytale-like as it gets. Inside, you’ll find 30 individually-designed guest rooms - all of which mix classic French décor (lavish furnishings, rich fabrics, carpeted flooring, floor-to-ceiling drapes) with modern luxuries.

Days here can be spent sipping cocktails in the beautiful sitting rooms, kicking back with a few glasses of whites or reds at the bar, and enjoying all sorts of indulgent pampering in the serene spa. Dining is just as five-star worthy; not least for the talented Pau-born chef’s gourmet menus that respect both the culture and age-old food traditions of this intriguing region.

Dining

For culinary thrills, the south-facing gourmet restaurant overlooking the Pyrénées has a superb terrace for al fresco dining in the summer months. Overseen by acclaimed Pau-born chef Patrick Brossé, the menu showcases sophisticated regional fare that pulls focus on local and seasonal ingredients. The restaurant opens daily for lunch (12pm to 2pm) and for dinner (7pm to 10pm). Diners can order from either the à la carte menu or the daily Expression du Marché menu with one, two, or three courses. Equally worthy of your attention is the vaulted bar and the ground floor sitting rooms with their comfy armchairs and free-to-borrow books. Breakfast is served in the dining room - or can be ordered straight to your room if you don’t want to get out of bed.

Spa

Open daily, the spa is a blissful space complete with a heated indoor pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, hamman, multi-jet shower, and fitness centre. For beautify aficionados, there’s a wealth of customised face and body treatments by leading Parisian brand, Cinq Mondes.

Location

You’ll be staying in Pau - the southwestern France city that’s located along the Pyrénées Mountains’ northern edge, around 85 kilometres from the Spanish border. Must-dos include admiring the elegant 19th-century mansions and cafés dotted along Boulevard des Pyrénées, learning more about the birthplace of Henri IV (known as The Good King) at Château de Pau, and gorging on artworks by Zurbaran, Bassano, and Jordaens at Musée des Beaux-Arts. Further thrills include shopping at the Palais des Pyrénées Mall on Rue de Tassigny, getting the lowdown on Jean-Baptiste Bernadotte at Musée Bernadotte, and checking out the lively bars in Quartier du Hédas (once the site of Pau’s slums). Villa Navarre is a 25-minute drive from Pau-Pyrénées Airport. Pau Golf Club - home to Europe’s first 18-hole course - is a 10-minute drive away.
