The complete list of Villegiature Awards winners has been released

Paris’s Hôtel Lutetia won the Best interior design and architecture in a hotel in Europe prize at the Villegiature Awards 2019

The 17th edition of the Villegiature Awards, which honor Europe, the Middle East and Asia's best and most beautiful hotels, has been released.

France retains its status as one of the world's most popular destinations, with a selection of institutions known for their charm and flawless execution of l'art de vivre. Le Mas Candille in the southern French city of Mougins was awarded the Coup de coeur (awards given to hotels that impressed the jury the most) in the "Charm" subcategory, while architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte was celebrated for his work on the renovation of the Hôtel Lutétia in Paris, which reopened in the summer of 2018. The Philippe Starck-designed Brach in Paris, which was opened in the fall of 2018 by Evok Hotels, was celebrated for the creativity of its interiors. The Best artistic contribution in a hotel in Europe was considered to be that of the Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey, the new hotel on the winery domaine of the same name in France's Sauternes. 

In terms of culinary offerings, chef Samuel Lee's Shang Palace -- the only Chinese restaurant in Paris with a Michelin star -- at the Shangri-La Hotel won the title of Best restaurant in a hotel in Europe. The Best breakfast in a hotel in Europe award can also be enjoyed à la française at Colroy-La-Roche's Cheneaudière and Spa.
