Pic Review

Celebrated as a culinary landmark for decades, the Maison Pic is also a feast for the eyes, with vaulted white salons, deep maroon-velvet sofas, 18th-century billiard tables, gigantic Provençal armoires, lovely gardens, and an inviting swimming pool. Some may say the interior design has obliterated all traces of its time-stained past, but few will mind considering how splendid the contemporary look is. The main raison d'étre, however, remains the famed restaurant, which is going stronger than ever. Try the truffle-flavor galettes with asparagus or the loup de mer (sea bass) with caviar to see how the acclaimed Anne-Sophie Pic—great-granddaughter of the founding matriarch and the only female chef in France to have earned three Michelin stars—is continuing the family legacy. Dine in the cardinal-red dining room seated on Louis Seize–style bergères or, in summer, on the shaded terrace; then retire upstairs to the guest rooms, done in a mix of rustic antiques and high-style fabrics.

    A real gem

    I was expecting period decor based on Fodor's review but was delighted to find that the hotel has been updated with very modern furnishings in all the public rooms and about half of the guest rooms. We had a room which overlooked the courtyard and were lucky enough to have our gourmet breakfasts on the balcony. The room was spacious and filled with amenities. Staff goes out of their way to make your stay perfect. The restaurant is extremely expensive but worth it for a one-time great experience.
