As a city, Provins is an untouched gem with so many valuable sites the whole city has a UNESCO heritage rating. Gaze out of your window and admire district views dotted with spectacular landmarks, including the 12th-century Saint Croix church, the imposing Cesar Tower and the Sainte Quiriace Basilica, some of Provinsâ€™ most picturesque attractions.
Heritage-conscious design features are a hallmark of the hotel, with corridor wall art inspired by medieval tapestries, and a cobblestone courtyard where guests can sit back and relax in warmer weather. The breakfast room has a modern indoor garden built vertically up one wall, while images of medieval knights and princesses gaze down from the other. Adjacent to this breezy space is the warm and inviting Buzz Bar, open to the general public. Le Cesar also offers a fitness centre, wellness centre and conference space.
