Normandy-Barrière Review

This hotel—its facade a riot of pastel-green timbering, checkerboard walls, and Anglo-Norman balconies—has been a town landmark since it opened in 1912, and crowds still pack the place. Thanks to a makeover by Jacques Garcia (France's most aristo decorator), its grand salons now overflow with needlepoint sofas, fin-de-siècle chandeliers, and 19th-century armchairs; the courtyard is its outdoor counterpart, with a grassy patio surrounded by a spectacular panoply of turrets and balconies. Only some guest rooms have air-conditioning: be sure to request one when booking, or ask for a room with a sea view and breeze. A regional menu is served in La Belle Époque, the snazzy restaurant set in a grand hall which, on a bright night, after a couple of bottles of Dom Pérignon, glitters like the salons of Versailles.
