It's all about heritage.
Ever since Esprit de France was founded in 1981, we’ve been convinced that it’s only by bringing heritage to life that we can truly showcase it at its best. This approach led to the acquisition of the first property in the collection, the Hôtel des Saints Pères, in Paris. A first hotel and the first step in an offering that has grown over time, giving our guests the chance to stay in heritage buildings in the heart of the countryside while enjoying luxury services.
Esprit de France is a unique take on the hotel industry, adopting an open, circular approach. A hotel industry that brings heritage to life; heritage that creates emotionally powerful experiences for guests; and guests who contribute to preserving the finest buildings.
This motivation, this drive, is quite naturally contagious, and so Esprit de France hotels and residences was born. By bringing together other players in the hospitality world and uniting them under our brand, this momentum has inspired others and the Esprit de France philosophy has grown ever stronger.
The result is a collection of signature hotels and a selection of residences, including châteaux, manors, houses, and farmhouses all over France. Esprit de France is constantly renewing its commitment to beauty. For heritage. For its guests.
