Hotel La Mirande Hotel

Hotel La Mirande is famous for its intricately renovated interiors. No expenses were spared to carefully restore what had survived from the past and to replenish, where necessary, the features of the age of enlightenment for the revival of a nobleman’s townhouse in the 18th century. In a brilliant endeavour, a secret private place was converted into a luxurious 5-star hotel without intruding on the soul of the building. Each guestroom has all the luxury amenities you would expect, but invisible if modern technology is involved as the mirror televisions of the mantelpieces. Even some former servants’ quarters, downstairs, were preserved and contribute to the activities we offer.

La Mirande could be the perfect setting for a French Donwton Abbey equivalent. La Mirande is romantic beyond belief also because of its unique location next to the skyward, oriental façade of the Popes’ Palace, literally visible from almost every room and the beautiful gardens. La Mirande is entertaining by offering two completely different dining experiences, either up-stairs in its excellent the gourmet restaurant or downstairs in the old kitchen where guests share a large table and dinner is prepared on the old wood burning stove as it was in use in the 19th century.

Spacious rooms are serenely elegant cocoons of luxury. Tall windows open over rear courtyards or views of the papal palace next door. Floors are polished wood, softened by coir mats and antique Turkish rugs. Walls are covered by fabric prettily patterned with bouquets of red, white and cream roses. Beds are huge. Furniture is authentic period stuff, with marble-topped nightstands and vast walnut armoires that are really there just for looks (there are walk-in wardrobes to hang clothes). Gilt-framed mirrors that convert to television screens at the press of a button are a nifty touch. Bathrooms, with over-tub rain showers, separate WC and twin washbasins, come with fluffy robes and Eau Impérial toiletries.

Hotel La Mirande Suite

Suite

The interior wall design of the suite’s living and bedroom represent the proportions and symmetries en vogue in the 18th century: authentic dado wood panelling, visual support to the fabric*, reaching from the dado rail to the crown moulding ; matched silk lined curtains ; vintage parquet floors, antique furniture, paintings, engravings and carpets; invisible mirror television integrated in a trumeau; six large antique windows with a splendid view through the period-appropriate old glass on the neighbouring Popes’ palace; *Montgeoffroy is the name of this historic cotton print as an original is still visible in a room of Château Montgeoffroy. Created around 1770 it is an “affordable” imitation of the famous and expensive French floral ikats also referred to as “Pompadour silk” with the characteristic blurred pattern.

La Mirande’s restaurant has yet to regain its Michelin star, and some may find the carte fails to match expectations raised by the prices and by reverential hush that predominates in its main dining room. A five-course tasting menu may feature seasonal dishes such as spider crab, partridge, sea bass in citrus-scented butter, and scorpion fish in saffron broth. The wine list is impeccable; in summer, dining in the garden is a delight. A delightful array of patisseries, teas and tisanes is served in the lounge in mid-afternoon, and the tiny, clubby bar is a pleasant place for a nightcap.Breakfast is served in a beautiful room with some tables in the garden terrace. It features cold cuts, cheeses, juices and patisseries as well as yoghurt and cereals. Tea and coffee are served at your table, but neither justify the hefty price tag.

Hotel La Mirande Gastronomic Restaurant

Gourmet Restaurant

The gourmet restaurant, awarded with one Michelin star in 2019, is an entity in its own right. At Hotel La Mirande the days follow a rhythm marked by genuine gastronomical moments, in which all the arts come together and nothing is left to chance. The table is a décor where the materials and the objects join with the forms and the colours of the food you are invited to taste: pleasure of the eye as an introduction to the pleasure of the palate! It is as if the products of nature had been observed and admired in their simplicity before becoming part of a recipe, however sophisticated and lovingly concocted, so as to preserve their integrity. And one of the greatest paradoxes is just how much energy is required to achieve such a light touch!

Hotel La Mirande Guest Table

Guest Table

In the old Pamard family kitchen, on a venerable wood burning stove, surrounded by the instruments of great traditional cooking – copper pans, beautiful earthenware, old-fashioned kitchen scales and an enormous wooden table – Séverine Sagnet is cooking in accordance with her credo “from farm to table” a set menu for an audience of up to 14 guests sharing 3 sides of the enormous wooden table. This is the heart of La Mirande. In the convivial atmosphere tongues become free and such complicity may lead to lasting friendship.
