A French Escapade

Memories Await with Beaumier

By Emme Martin | Photography courtesy of Beaumier

France is always a good idea. Visiting a Beaumier hotel is an even better one. Beaumier offers discerning travelers three unique and unforgettable French experiences. The newly renamed group derives inspiration from August Beaumier, nineteenth-century French geographer, writer, and explorer. The brand’s mantra, “The Art of Living Differently,” applies to each of its eight hotel destinations, emphasizing authenticity in the French Alps, Provence, or the French Riviera. Clean architecture and aesthetic design allow the guests to focus on their natural surroundings in a chic and casual atmosphere. Service is another top priority, as the highly skilled hospitable staff is a trademark of Beaumier. To travel is to live, Beaumier affirms, so let them introduce you to the possibilities.

Those who want a more elevated experience can discover the French Alps with L’Alpaga in Megève and Hôtel Le Fitz Roy and Hôtel Le Val Thorens in the Val Thorens ski area.

The glorious Mediterranean Sea is visible from every guest room at the stunning Les Roches Rouges, Beaumier’s boutique hotel in the French Riviera.

Megève is one of the most exclusive luxury ski destinations and home to the first French winter sports resort in history. L’Alpaga provides an array of chalets facing Mont Blanc. Guests have access to the spa of Alpaga and the two-star Michelin restaurant La Table de l’Alpaga. The chalets, ranging from three to six bedrooms, are perfect for large groups or families for an incredible stay anytime of the year. All have huge balconies with even more extensive views. Although it’s difficult to focus on anything but the surroundings, as the mountains offer vistas like fine artwork, the rooms are tastefully appointed. The common areas are open to guests and day visitors alike.

The brand’s properties in Provence include Le Moulin, Le Galinier, and Capelongue.

Moving upward to the highest ski village in the Alps, Val Thorens boasts the Hôtel Le Fitz Roy and Hôtel Le Val Thorens. Both offer a paradise for skiers who want to immerse themselves in the mountain culture. Currently, both resorts are undergoing renovations and are expected to be completed by the end of the year. The restorations will provide a new experience in each location while holding the same values of comfortable elegance that Beaumier holds dear. Keen visitors may make reservations on the Beaumier website to be the first to experience the new alpine fantasy.

In the heart of Courchevel, Les 3 Vallées offers the same idealistic mountain experience. Here, welcoming guests is considered an art form, and first impressions are a specialty.

The local roots, modern aesthetics, and warm atmosphere allow good feelings to flow from the moment guests arrive.

The guest rooms’ style is a blend of 1950s spirit and modernized furniture. Whether you’re into hang gliding, skiing, or driving snowmobiles, Les 3 Vallées will make adventure possible, followed by the ultimate après-ski relaxation at the spa and dinner at L’Épicerie for a generous and charming dining experience.

Moving west toward Provence, the village of Bonnieux provides a fairy-tale experience. Beaumier’s Capelongue resort in the botanical town complements the scenery with linen curtains, hexagonal floor tiles, and minimal yet minimalist furnishings. Take a nap in the shade of an almond tree, relax at the spa, and follow up the perfect day with dinner at one of Beaumier’s restaurants in the Luberon region—La Bastide and La Bergerie, where chefs Noël Bérard and Mathieu Guivarch create experiences like no other. Feasting on the finest local produce and enjoying quality time with friends and family is the vibe here.

Le Moulin and Le Galinier reside in the village of Lourmarin, recognized as one of the most beautiful villages in France. Le Moulin is an old mill converted into the village grocery and an inn. The rooms are warm, reflecting the colors of the nearby Roussillon quarries. Life at Le Moulin is all about appreciating life’s simple pleasures, such as hunting for truffles or practicing yoga amongst the landscapes of South Luberon. Le Galinier estate offers the dreamlike beauty of Provence when guests arrive at their room or flat. The property’s vacation homes and more extensive flats are ideal for families, while the smaller apartments and rooms provide a more intimate experience. Here, the rooms continue the idea of honoring Provence’s impossibly charming surroundings with a minimally chic aesthetic and fresh country flowers. Endless possibilities present themselves through swimming pools, orchards, kitchens, and rose gardens. A stay at Le Galinier is pure magic.

On the coast, Beaumier presents Les Roches Rouges in the French Riviera. This resort brings a whole new meaning to “postcard-worthy,” as every view here is strikingly gorgeous. The white mid-century contemporary buildings make a serene contrast against the deep-blue sea. At the same time, the minimalist, light-filled spaces are inspired by the sea and red rocks of the Estérel, with touches of orange, ocher, and lemon yellow. When they’re not enjoying the lush grounds, the restaurants, or the surrounding scrubland of the Riviera, guests can unwind on their private balconies. The resort offers a comprehensive sports program with hiking, yoga, and cycling, perfect when followed by spa treatments or a relaxing dip in the saltwater pool. Les Roches Rouges encourages guests to do nothing, as being in the presence of all of the beauty here is enough to make them want to stay forever.

In the iconic French Alps, Beaumier offers L’Alpaga in Megève, Hôtel Le Val Thorens and Hôtel Le Fitz Roy in the Val Thorens ski area, and the lodge at Les 3 Vallées in the heart of Courchevel.

“The Art of Living Differently” provokes the idea that guests are allowed to escape to a more simplistic existence, where less is more.

Beaumier embraces a disconnection from city life as travelers tap into the present moment and routines fade away.

All Beaumier locations offer a remarkable story through the surrounding environments—it is only a matter of travelers deciding which experience they wish to indulge in first.

From its vistas to its seaside dining experiences, Les Roches Rouges always presents an abundance of beauty and style.
