Since the 1920s, the late Paul Roux had played host to some of the greatest modern artists: from Miró to Matisse, Calder to Chagal, Buffet, Braque and Bonnard, Léger, Dufy, Utrillo and the papa of them all Pablo Picasso. All have stayed there paying their bills with paintings, sculptures and drawings, leaving a priceless legacy – clever Monsieur Roux.
Like a magnet the Art Hotel attracted the greatest film directors, actors, singers and writers of the day: Renoir, Prevert, Chaplin, Truffaut, Signoret, Piaf, Montand and Deitrich. It became one the most famous celebrity salon in the South of France.
Today, nothing has changed. The likes of Michael Caine, Bono, Roger Moore or Richard Attenborough can be sighted lunching at a long table on the terrace.
