Villa Provence Aarhus
Quite convenient for both transportation and holiday season, with the railway station, bus stops, shopping streets, cathedral and assorted museums throughout a 10-15 minute walk. Additionally, it is well-placed for researching the exceptional brand new DOKK 1 library, only a couple of minutes’ away, and also for trying out both foodie hotspots of Aarhus Street Food and Aarhus Central Food Market, both close at hand.
Style & personality
A entire contrast to Scandi minimalism; this really is the most enchanting and intimate hotel in Aarhus, full of colour and character. Everywhere you look there is something to grab the attention, from the gorgeous antique chandeliers into the fabulous group of retro French movie images that line the walls. The sofa is equally relaxing and worthy of an interiors magazine shoot, with all glistening white-painted hardwood flooring, cozy floral couches and interesting bric a brac picked up in France and Italy. Add in a massive heap of coffee table books plus a couple of drinks trolley and it is a simple spot to linger.
Service & amenities
There is no significant army of employees but always somebody there in the event that you want anything, and owners Annette and Steen are both available in breakfast, talking to guests and discussing local hints. Rooms include a folder full of useful advice, from local running routes to great antiques stores. In summer, the cobbled courtyard is a true bonus — surrounded by Danish star florist Tage Anderson, also full of enormous baskets of roses, hydrangeas and neatly-clipped conifers, it is a calm spot to sit out and relax to a soundtrack of water plashing from the fountain.
Standard rooms are cosy, tranquil and adorable, with sloping ceilings, iron bedsteads and mild, refreshing colors on the walls. Go for a few of those bigger rooms and you also get additional play together with additional space — the color palette is often warmer and warmer and there is a fantastic chance the bed is going to be a four-poster.
All 39 rooms are somewhat distinct but whatever you are in, there is no stinting on the facts: outstanding beds are topped with quality French sheets; ample plug sockets deal with all of your electronics; and you will come across robes, slippers and an adequate minibar from the wardrobe.
Food & beverage
There is no restaurant at the resort itself but there is no big deal when you are right in town center surrounded by places to eat — that the in-room folder indicates a dozen or so of the ideal. Breakfast, shot in the bright, white dining area, is a relaxed affair, without a scrabbling within a buffet; rather, dishes are all served to a tile-topped table — a basket of bread, butter and preserves; a spoonful of veggies, cheeses, peas and peas; along with a hot dish of eggs and bacon.
