Hôtel Baudy

Hôtel Baudy Review

Back in Monet's day, this pretty-in-pink villa, originally an épicerie-buvette (café-cum-grocer's store), was the hotel of the American painters' colony. Today, the rustic dining room and flowery patio have been overshadowed by all the hubbub at the museums down the road but be sure to detour here as this remains one of the most charming spots in the Ile-de-France, as you'll discover in the stage-set dining room (renovated to appear as in Monet's day) and the extraordinarily pretty rose garden out back, whose embowered paths lead to the adorable studio that Cézanne once used. The surroundings retain more historic charm than the simple cuisine (mainly warm and cold salads, large enough to count as a main course in their own right, or straightforward warm dishes, like an omelette or gigot d'agneau) or the busloads of tour groups (luckily channeled upstairs). A decent three-course prix-fixe lunch or dinner is also available.
