  • The chameleon house of Philippe Collet

    If you are looking for a place to sleep and dine in Valenciennes with a lot of charm and character, look no further, The Grand Duke is the perfect place to stay.

    Built in a magnificently restored mansion, the house of a former director of the mining company, it has 5 rooms with poetic names. It is a baroque-and-roll style guest house. The whole place and each of the five rooms are tastefully decorated because the owner Philippe Collet is also a professional interior designer and a sculptor. Celebrities (David Bowie and Fanny Ardant to name a few) have remained there, and the singer Babet has even created a song "the room always".
    The Grand Duke is very inspiring because art is everywhere. The beautiful decoration is updated regularly by the talented owner.
    Next to the kitchen, there is a giant chandelier in perpetual change, following the mood and the season of its owner. Luxury designer furniture shares the space with vintage and fun flea markets. The result is captivating and gives visitors a sense of being in another world, as in a fairy tale. The whole place can be booked for private events, and they regularly organize cooking classes, concerts or other festivities.

    The Grand Duke has a spacious and beautiful garden, with some interesting works of art scattered all over the place. Our favorite is the red door at the back of the garden. The door of nowhere and elsewhere, symbol of a new beginning.

    The cuisine is exceptional. Alexis Vache, the chef of the house makes a surprisingly refined French cuisine for the happy guests. The dishes are as beautiful as they are delicious.

    Lovers of art and gastronomy, The Grand Duke is a place you will love.
