Tucked away in Ville-d’Avray, an artsy town in the suburbs of Paris, Les Etangs de Corot sits like a crown jewel in the heart of a bucolic environment that miraculously has been left intact for over a century and a half.
The Auberge Cabassud was once a celebrated open-air café known as a guinguette, and enjoyed a large following at the turn of the 20th century.
While individually styled, all of its rooms and suites are graciously decorated in inspiring color schemes, with beautiful art pieces, discreet mood lighting, and one-of-a-kind antique furnishings.
Awarded with a Michelin star, the hotel’s refined restaurant focuses on inventive gourmet cuisine, and the onsite Caudalie Spa offers everything from vine and grape-based treatments to Jacuzzi and hammam.
Today, Les Etangs de Corot is classified a historical monument, a true haven of calm sheltered from the noise and pollution of the capital. In 2001 this hamlet became a hotel, which was built to make the most of its exceptional natural setting just outside Paris city limits.
