This wanderer has a new journey that I am excited to share! I’m still floating from a few days exploring Nîmes in the South of France. Quaint café lunches, historic Roman ruins, lush lavender fields, the colorful Camargue and sand beaches (bonus: an endless flow of rosé wine) are all within a short drive.
Looking for the best place to stay as a gateway to these awe-inspiring experiences? The prestigious new Hotel L’Imperator will impress. The longstanding, iconic hotel once played host to well-known guests like writer Ernest Hemingway, Hollywood star Ava Gardner, famous matador El Cordobés, artist Pablo Picasso and more. It’s been brought back to life with sublime, carefully curated interiors, which celebrate its notable history and character.
The original 1920s cage lift will guide you to elegant, intimate accommodations with rich tones of wood, marble and natural stone. The gourmet restaurant, brasserie and Bar Hemingway offer an exceptional dining experience led by three-star Michelin chef Pierre Gagnaire. The new outdoor pool will draw you in for an afternoon of sunbathing and refreshing cocktails. And speaking of new—the Codage Spa is divine. Relaxation is guaranteed with massages, facials, an indoor pool and steam room. When you’re ready to expand your French travels to the south, wander to Nîmes and relish in luxury at the legendary Hotel L’Imperator.
