Faced with the modernity that is invading all aspects of life, Châteaux & Hôtels Collection promote unrivalled standards of quality. New imperatives concerning character, charm and exclusivity have now been added to the essential requirements of comfort, service and location. Under their banner, fine establishments are developing, innovating and providing their customers with many different ways of enjoying their breaks that differ as much as the guests themselves.
Despite the huge diversity of the Châteaux, inns, traditional hotels and manor houses within the association, Châteaux & Hôtels Collection have identified five categories or ‘Collections’ into which these properties have now been grouped so that you can get a feel for the type and style of establishment before you make your choice.
The ‘Collections’ are as follows:
Exceptional establishments where excellence has remained the watchword for so long, where regular customers rush to return, and where merest detail is the focus of great attention. Their prestige and reputation are recognised not only in France but internationally.
Lovingly restored hotels and residences that possess that extra touch of class added by old stone and period panelling. The polished parquet floor gently creaks, magnificent furniture blends seamlessly with traditional architecture. The owner prefers authenticity to ostentatious refurbishment. The hurly-burly of the modern world has yet to reach this establishment. The sound of Mozart floats from the lounges.
Enjoying fine city and rural locations, they prove irresistible to travellers seeking a friendly yet professional hotel with a high level of service. Comfortable, well appointed rooms sometimes full of history, sometimes resolutely modern. Ideal for a family weekend or an overnight break during a business trip.
