A place where Chef Thierry would no longer be bound by the limitations of 5-star hotels or high-end restaurants, where he’d previously worked. It would be a creative space to explore French gastronomy at his own pace, in an environment designed to facilitate the best of what excellent ingredients could offer.
Always fascinated by Asia, Thierry found himself as head chef at Princess d’Annam Resort & Spa in Phan Thiet, an ultra-luxury boutique resort. There he met Tina, his future wife, who was working there at the time.
When they moved to Saigon, Thierry found the opportunity to do what would have been nearly impossible in France due to costs: purchase a beautiful villa and shape it into one of Vietnam’s most professional and experienced fine dining restaurants.
La Villa has found incredible success after years of rigorous staff training and unrestrained exploration of French fine cuisine. True Michelin-quality fine dining has finally come to Vietnam.
