Clermont-Ferrand: a literary hotel Alexandre Vialatte
After the Literary Hotel “Le Swann” dedicated to Marcel Proust opened in 2013 in Paris, then the Hotel Littéraire Gustave Flaubert in 2015 in Rouen, here comes the Literary Hotel Alexandre Vialatte in Clermont-Ferrand. This 4-star hotel opened on November 16, which is decorated by the architect Aude Bruguière, assisted by Aleth Prime, has one of the most beautiful panoramas in the region. Located on the Place Delille “a place shaded by plane trees in the very heart of Clermont-Ferrand” (Alexandre Vialatte), at the foot of the historical center of the city and very close to the jewel of the Romanesque art that is the basilica Notre-Dame Of the Port, it is an ideal starting point to discover this city where Vialatte lived several years. In each of the 62 rooms, we find, through the watercolors by Jean Aubertin, a character or a place that tells the poetic universe of Alexandre Vialatte. As for the terrace on the 6th floor, it offers a 180 degree view of the Puys chain and the arrows of the cathedral … Next openings: the Hotel Littéraire Marcel Aymé at the end of 2017 in Paris, in the district of Montmartre and the Blaise Cendrars Littéraire Hotel in 2018 near the Gare de l’Est.
