An introduction to Baudon de Mauny

How would you describe Baudon de Mauny in a nutshell?

Baudon de Mauny is a very stylish 18th-century boutique hotel with extravagant rooms in the historic heart of Montpellier in Languedoc-Roussillon, France.

What was your inspiration to open a Hôtel Particulier?

The name Hôtel Particulier actually has nothing to do with a hotel. It is a private mansion that’s like a castle in the city. In the mid-17th century, noblemen used Hotel Particuliers when they were in Paris for aristocratic parties.

The living room is 60 square meters or so with 14.5 foot high ceilings. The staircases are vast and there is a lot of free space. To rent it out as an apartment didn’t make sense because it’s just much too big. It’s more of a pleasure to spend a few nights here instead. That’s what the house was designed for.

Baudon de Mauny has been in your family for seven generations. Please tell us a bit about the history of the building.

Baudon de Mauny was the name of the man who built the house in 1777. He was managing the king’s affairs in Montpellier. The house was only used by his family, but we can imagine there were probably roughly 30 people working for him, a housekeeper, a cook, and so on.

My grandfather, who was in the fabric industry, bought this house in 1829 and it has been in our family ever since.

What is different about staying at Baudon de Mauny instead of a regular hotel?

Within two mins of arriving at Baudon de Mauny, our guest feel comfortable. They feel a personal connection rather than the generic greeting people usually receive at most hotels. The most common reaction when guests see some of the rooms is simply ‘Wow!’. They are overwhelmed by the very high ceilings and huge rooms.

To you personally, what has been most rewarding about running Baudon de Mauny?

Our vacation guests. For example last week, we had people from India visiting and we have a lot of architects come to stay as well. We didn’t want to make it so luxurious that it only drew people who had money to spend. We really wanted to have more of a cultural draw, and I think we have really succeeded in that. It’s a very diverse mix of people we receive here at Baudon de Mauny.

Baudon de Mauny rooms & rates

We have nine rooms (4 different categories), a living room, a lounge area, a meeting area for business clients and a breakfast room under a glass roof.

My wife is an interior designer and she did all of the design work. Her main goal was to capture the spirit of the place. Some parts are full of historical memories, others are more contemporary yet still, reflect the spirit of the place.

The style has nothing to do with provincial or classical 18th century, although we do have some 18th-century armchairs and other furniture from that period. It’s a mix of all different kinds of designs — chic and casual.

    Nestled within a 14th-century interior courtyard, these rooms are havens of calm.

    Light filters in through contemporary architectural elements specially created for these wonderfully spacious rooms. A subtle staging combined with the harmonious use of colour, texture, fabrics and unique pieces of furniture serves to awaken and stimulate the senses.

    Conjuring the sound of footfall on snow, or rays of sunlight filtering through a forest, these delightfully comfortable rooms offer a truly unique experience where 18th-century French classicism meets the modern, poetic, creative spirit of the 21st century.

Giant prints rub shoulders with comfortable sofas and large designer armchairs.

    Our suites were specially adapted for families with children, with a small, fully-fitted kitchen available for guests’ use.

    These two rooms are hidden gems, charged with history. Their volumes, lofty ceilings and ornamentation reflect the exceptional refinement of an 18th-century-period building. Original plaster moldings featuring baskets of fruit or trophies above enormous gilded mirrors suggest a music room, with doves perched in the arches of molded ceilings and the discreet, refined antechamber.

    The rooms have been elegantly renovated with the comfort of modern aesthetes in mind; period furniture is paired with classic design icons of the 20th century.

    The modern theme is carried through by daring touches such as a glass shower stall hidden behind a partition wall in the middle of the room, or an outsized bathtub set in a waxed concrete surround.

Things to do in Occitanie & Montpellier

  • Art / Culture
  • Shopping / Markets
  • Night life
  • Wine tastings
  • Massages / Treatments
  • Golf
  • Cycling
  • Boat trips

We have 4 beautiful museums: Musée Fabre, MOCO, Panacée, and Pavillon Populaire. All four are of international level and display works from the 17th through to the 21st century. There are many castles to visit, the Camargue area, the Mediterranean sea, local wineries and, of course, many very nice restaurants.

We are only about 15 mins from the sea, so it’s probably one of the very few cities you can visit and have a picnic on the beach. And less than one hour away there are Arles and Nîmes, so there are a lot of different things to do in a short time.

The location of Baudon de Mauny

We are located in the centre of Montpellier, so you can get to everything on foot. Montpellier is a city of contrasts. It’s a very old, medieval city from 14th century and it’s also a university city, so there are a lot of young people here. That mix of young and old makes it a vibrant city. There is always something going on, and the population is growing each year. With Moco, Panacée, Pavillon Populaire, and the Fabre Museum we have at least 4 art institutions of an international level here.

When is the best time to visit Occitanie?

Montpellier is a year-round destination. It does get quite hot during the summer months and there is not that much to do once it gets too cold. Therefore we would recommend visiting in spring and fall, those are probably the best months.
