Description - Hip Hotels France by Herbert Ypma
France has it all - a rich history, an incredibly varied geography, a gastronomic culture that is unsurpassed, and a tradition of good living that remains blissfully untainted by the stresses of modern life. Hip Hotels: France brings together the most authentically individual of France's hotels in the country's choicest destinations. Choose the futuristic vision of Jean Nouvel or the hearty hospitality of an Alpine farmhouse, a fisherman's but on the South Atlantic coast or the hip modernity of Le Corbusier's Unite d' Habitation in Marseilles, a Mecca for devotees of modernist architecture. Some are established, some are virtually unknown, but every one of these hotels is a unique response to the geography, cuisine and design heritage of its location. So whether you are an adventurer, a gourmet, or a design aficionado - or all of the above - Hip Hotels: France will enable you to plan your itinerary through city, town, coast and countryside. This third volume in the phenomenally successful Hip Hotels series is once more guaranteed to set you dreaming. It has all the slick of City and all the variety of Escape - all in one amazing country.

Book Reviews - Hip Hotels France by Herbert Ypma
UK Kirkus Review »
Those of you who are familiar with the other books in the series, Escape and City, will be pleased to hear of this latest addition, devoted entirely to France. Some 40 hotels are explored here in full colour and from all over the country, including Brittany, Burgundy, Languedoc, Marseilles, St Tropez, Provence and, of course, Paris. Each hotel has been selected for one or more outstanding features, whether food, architecture, setting or atmosphere, and many score highly on all these fronts. A genuinely practical book whose advice you can trust, it also works well for armchair fantasies on rainy afternoons. (Kirkus UK)
