Uniquely charming decor; high-end services. Welcome to the world of Dominique and Valérie Berrurier.
"Personalisation and special attention paid to the quality of our services."
Dominique and Valérie were already the owners of a hotel in Vendôme and wanted to offer their town something new: a charming boutique hotel at the heart of its centre. "We bought Le Vendôme in 2014. It was a run-down 3-star hotel in a sleeping beauty of a Haussmann building. A vision of the luxury of yesteryear that we wanted to revive in our own style. The couple, who are passionate about decoration, embarked upon a lengthy renovation project. Some spaces were rearranged, others removed (31 rooms instead of 35). "We renovated the cornices, parquet floors and light fittings, hung paintings and frames... all using treasures we’d found at fairs. "Today, The Originals Boutique, Hotel Vendôme is still listed as a 3-star hotel, but has all the benefits of a 4-star establishment", the hotelier couple explain. Friendliness, a quality service, but also the decoration, comfort and hospitality - "that's what makes our hotel so special."
Dominique and Valérie are passionate about decoration. They wanted to restore the sparkle, or rather the luxury befitting Napoleon III, to each of The Originals Boutique, Hotel Vendôme’s 31 rooms, like everywhere else in the hotel. Imperial (Queen or King-sized) beds, rugs reminiscent of royal motifs, imposing lampshades... As for the colour scheme, the deep reds and Second Empire golds have given way to resolutely contemporary tones in a range of dark greys and blacks. "A chic atmosphere with all the charm of yesteryear."

Let yourself be charmed by the bright breakfast room and its generous buffet offering organic, local and artisanal sweet and savoury fare. For your lunches and dinners, Dominique and Valérie invite you to discover their restaurant, ‘Chez Berru’, situated in the upper area of town, where the chef will serve you traditional cuisine homemade with fresh products. When it’s time to relax, settle down in the hotel lobby after grabbing a handful of sweets at Candy's Bar or ordering a drink at Berru's Bar, which offers a fine selection of whiskeys and wines from the Loire along with a buffet of savoury snacks to nibble. * Alcohol abuse is harmful to your health - consume in moderation.
