Set in an 1860s hunting lodge and its beautifully restored outhouses, this refined, ivy-clad hotel is surrounded by vineyards between Blois and Amboise, making it a fabulous base for chateau-hopping and wine-tasting.

It’s also romance on a stick. Not only will couples love the dreamy garden views (best seen with a glass of wine at sunset) and the outdoor pool, but also the Clarins spa (with its hammam, sauna and outdoor terrace).

The restaurant wows with 2-star Michelin cuisine focusing on Loire Valley produce, and cooking classes are available if you want to learn the kitchen’s secrets.
