Exploration, a city break, relaxation...nestled away in the heart of Good King Henry’s birthplace and capital of Béarn, Pau...come and experience the dolce vita. Welcome to Jean-Christophe Adam’s place.
“ Welcoming guests here is an honour for us, and we will do all we can to make sure that they enjoy their stay. ”
Here in a city with a historic background, Jean-Christophe has created his very own haven of peace. The Originals Boutique, Villa Montpensier, Pau is a unique and charming hotel with just one aim: for its guests to be pampered. With a smile, naturally. “In this business we need to give the best of ourselves to our guests. This is because the most important thing for us is our relationship with them,” explains the hotel’s owner. In fact, this tranquil 3-star establishment is all about its guests’ well-being: although full of character, it has got to “stay an informal place,” Jean-Christophe adds. A second home, where even the most insignificant of guests’ wishes are granted. “If a client asks us for breakfast at 4 or 5 o’clock in the morning, they will get it. ” And all only a stone’s throw away from Pau’s rich cultural heritage, gardens and museums, with the The Originals Boutique, Villa Montpensier, Pau rising like an oasis of calm and joy from the midst of the city centre.
Located in the heart of Pau, this charming hotel’s sophisticated and comfortable facilities are second to none. What is more, the owner has endeavoured to create a different ambiance in each of its 22 rooms. Cosy and friendly, The Originals Boutique, Villa Montpensier, Pau has a classic and harmonious style. A few well-judged modern touches enhance the feeling of comfort and well-being.

Breakfast is always a friendly affair. For Jean-Christophe, it is also an opportunity to showcase local produce to his guests. Here, visitors are encouraged to eat their fill of excellent Bearnese cheeses from Clarmontine, ham on the bone, fruit from local grower Verger Pélanne, and much more... Should guests find themselves with a few moments to spare, the hotel also has a very peaceful and pleasant sweeping outdoor terrace.
The charming The Originals Boutique, Villa Montpensier, Pau is a haven of peace in the heart of the city, and the perfect base from which to make the most of a trip to Pau.
The Originals Boutique, Villa Montpensier, Pau also offers guests the opportunity to escape out onto the greens - over the weekend, for example. The hotel has partnered with the most beautiful courses in the region, including Pau Gold Club and the Blue Green Pau Artiguelouve.
Between trips into Pau to explore its heritage, outings into the Pyrenees or meetings, a spot of relaxation is a must. The Originals Boutique, Villa Montpensier, Pau has designed a weekend wellbeing package comprising a one-night stay and spa time. This includes one and a half hours in the Terra Nostra Spa with access to the sauna, hammam and jacuzzi, as well as a half-hour massage.
YOUR VERY OWN GASTRONOMICAL EXPERIENCEIn Pau, the capital of Béarn, people eat well. Jean-Christophe loves to spoil his guests, and is generous with his excellent gastronomical tips. Especially as there is no shortage of restaurants in Pau. Some of his top spots include: La Michodière, only 30 metres away from the hotel, Le Bayard, an excellent Luso-French restaurant, and La Tireuse, a cosy local bar offering a selection of beers.
PYRENEAN ADVENTURESAs the second city of Aquitaine, Pau is surrounded by cultural treasures. From the heap of things to do, Jean-Christophe has several recommendations for you: a visit to the classic and unmissable Lourdes; a wander through the remarkable caves of Bétharram; an epic hike up the Pic du Midi d'Ossau; or a ride like no other on the little train of Artouste in the Ossau Valley, which will carry you up to over 2,000 metres above sea level. The list goes on…
You might also enjoy a game of pétanque with friends or clients in the pétanque court, or boulodrome, which the owner has recently completed work on.
