Place Auguste-Pierre Pont


Tel: 33 4 68 71 98 71

The only luxury hotel within the town's medieval walls, this neo-Gothic structure was built in 1909 on the site of a bishop's palace. "Beautiful and delightful" rooms vary in shape, layout, and furnishings—"ours had wonderful views of the cathedral and the street below." Chez Saskia Brasserie, decorated with photos of such guests as Grace Kelly, serves dishes like curried mussel soup with fennel. Staff are "attentive without being overbearing."
