Frances Michelin Key Hotels

In April 2024, the Michelin Guide announced the inaugural Michelin Key list, revealing the first hotels that have been awarded one, two and three key statuses. Based on deep evaluation by their team, the Key hotels represent the highlight properties in the Michelin Guide collection which they recognise as being the most outstanding in France. These are properties offering a sensational guest experience overall. Similar to Michelin Stars, Michelin Keys are awarded on a one – three key basis, with three being deemed the best of the best by the selection committee.

French hotels and resorts are widely considered to be among the best in the world in all regards: service, quality, amenities, location, and a superior sense of being overall. So aside from its French heritage, there are several reasons that point to the Michelin Guide choosing France to lead the way with the announcement of its first Keys.

“More than three quarters of Scott Dunn’s newly launched, and carefully curated, French hotel portfolio consist of properties awarded the inaugural 2024 Michelin Key awards, announced in April, including 18 of the 24 coveted Three Key properties. While the standard hotel star rating system awards stars based simply on amenities, the Michelin Guide awards the keys based entirely on the overall quality of the guest experience from start to finish,” shared Nick Cunningham, Scott Dunn’s Europe Destination Manager, “We are pleased to add that nearly 80% of our personally vetted and carefully curated hotel collection are now Michelin Key partners!”

Scott Dunn’s pick of the best Michelin Key hotels across France:

Grand Hotel du Cap-Ferrat


An iconic Riviera retreat and the property's two new villas (ready for this summer season) are exceptional private spaces, perfect for a family or group of friends seeking seclusion without compromising on service.

La Reserve Paris


La Reserve Paris is a luxurious Parisian hideaway for the most discerning travellers offering a quiet retreat in amongst the buzz of Paris. Enjoy the superb service, the location in the heart of the city, and savour the tastes of the two Michelin-star Restaurant Le Gabriel.

The Maybourne Riviera


Looking for a place where spectacular views and innovative design meet? The Maybourne Riviera is our top choice. Take in the soul-stirring coastal views and be spoiled for choice at the sublime restaurants on site, under the design direction of three Michelin-starred Mauro Colagreco.

Les Roches Blanches


For those in the know, Les Roches Blanches is our favorite hidden gem in Cassis near the beautifully untouched Clanaques National Park. Here, the enviable location, flawless service, Art Deco spirit and quiet glamour make for an unforgettable stay.

Terre Blanche


Our top recommendation for families is Terre Blanche in the hills of Provence, with endless activities for kids of all ages. With two championship golf courses and a luxurious spa, in addition to understated luxury and exceptional service, parents will love Terre Blanche too.
