The Concept of the Hôtels Littéraires
Four-star hotels dedicated to our favourite authors 

The Hôtels Littéraires were conceived by the collector and booklover Jacques Letertre and the Hôtels Littéraires team to pay tribute to our favourite writers and share our enthusiasm with all our visitors.  The idea is to reach out to all of our guests through various types of artistic expression, such as interior design, painting, drawing, books, works of art, etc., and encourage them to find out more during their tailor-made cultural stay.  

In Montmartre, there was no better choice than Marcel Aymé, the iconic writer from this district, who lived here for more than forty years during the time of his "golden age."  The author of Les Contes du chat perché and La Traversée de Paris makes frequent reference to the streets and inhabitants of La Butte in his books, and the statue of Le Passe-muraille (The Walker through Walls), just a stone's throw from the hotel, seems to be awaiting you, to guide you through an enchanted Montmartre.

The Hôtel Littéraire Alexandre Vialatte in Clermont-Ferrand is situated in the Place Delille, near the Basilica of Notre-Dame du Port, a jewel of Romanesque art.

In 2021:  The Hôtel Littéraire Jules Verne in Biarritz

Not far from the ocean that so inspired him to write his "extraordinary journeys," the Hotel Littéraire Jules Verne celebrates the author of Tour du monde en quatre-vingt jours (Around the World in Eighty Days) and Vingt Mille lieues sous les mers (Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea), in a setting that represents discovery and adventure.
