At Slow-Chic we like people and places that come with a story, wine routes rather than maps, unexpected encounters and produce that is so fresh you can smell the garden it grew in.

We love hotel owners that you'll you find in the kitchen rather than in the office, boutique hotels that are thought-through, and luxury hideaways that have a boarding house soul.

With our philosophy as a guiding thread we have handpicked the best boutique hotels to book online for a range of tastes and budgets — from oenophiles b&b's of choice in Gascony and affordable hideaways in Paris, to chic chateaux in the Loire Valley and Michelin starred restaurants with rooms in Provence. Each and every Slow-Chic hotel is personally reviewed to ensure it offers truly outstanding and genuine experience before it is invited to join. We review and rate each of our selected boutique hotels and restaurants on a regular basis.


As an absolute rule, no hotel is ever allowed to buy its way into Slow-Chic. This keeps our collection fresh, honest, and dependable.

Welcome to Slow-Chic.
