La Villa Gallici

La Villa Gallici

****

This honey-coloured villa close to the opulent old town of Aix-en-Provence is a decadently decorated Francophile’s dream. Lavish interiors, sumptuous fabrics and a poolside Cézanne would have been proud to paint, Villa Gallici is a Provençal masterpiece. Its grounds live up to this idyll, too – they’re lusciously dense with 100-year-old plane and cypress trees.

Highlights:

  • Lavish interiors with a uniquely French feel

  • Right in the centre of Aix – fabulous restaurants and chic shopping on your doorstep

  • A refined retreat set in peaceful grounds

in our surroundings. It’s one of several portraits we spy of an aristocratic lady who must be Madame Gallici, the wife of Villa Gallici’s original owner. Little is known about the wealthy bourgeois couple who built this fine-looking house in the hills above Aix-en-Provence, but they’d surely have approved of the classical opulence that greets their 21st-century guests.

Dining information

Restaurant:

The opulent dining room is formal but cosy, with sofas and squashy chairs pulled up to linen-draped tables. The candlelit terrace has a more relaxed summer-dining look. Lunch is served between 12.30pm and 1.30pm; dinner is between 7.30pm and 9.30pm. The fine-dining menu features pan-fried foie gras with cherries, roasted John Dory and chicory-anise ice-cream.

Top table:

Out on the terrace for some romantic seclusion.

Last orders:

The bar is open all day, closing when the restaurant does.

Room service:

The simple menu includes cheese boards, smoked salmon, soup and omelettes – available any time. The hotel will also bring you afternoon tea wherever you choose to take it – on the terrace, in your room or in the grounds.

Hotel bar:

The bar is next to the restaurant and just as lavish – trompe l'oeil effects on the walls, florals and stripes on the soft furnishings. Any cocktail you like will be whipped up as you unwind to lounge and jazz classics.
