ANNUAL CLOSURE: Open year round

THE STORY: After opening their initial Maisons de Campagne (or “country homes”) in the Château de Villiers-le-Mathieu, the hotel group Les Hôtels (Très) Particuliers is continuing their conquest of the Yvelines department by acquiring the Château du Val – nothing less than the former hunting lodge of Louis XIV! Shall we set the scene? A building with a breathtaking facade, at the heart of a tree-lined, ten-acre estate, located along the edge of the Saint-Germain-en-Laye forest. Once you’ve made it through the imposing entrance, you’ll discover a veritable playground: an immense library filled with a thousand books, a grand portrait gallery, a botanist lounge with a tidy herbarium, an aviary with sweeping views of the gardens… Glide through a seemingly-endless series of rooms, each of which is unique, like a real-life game of Clue. And once night falls, some fifty bedrooms allow tired souls to drift off to sleep in either the Tradition rooms, with their pine green and sand tones, where oil paintings coexist alongside modern pieces; or the Évasion rooms that are spacious enough to fit the whole family. It’s the perfect spot for a green getaway, just an hour outside of Paris. Double rooms starting at €150 a night.

BREAKFAST: Included, buffet-style, featuring coffee or tea, fruit juice, bread, pancakes, butter, jam, honey, chouquette puffs, viennoiseries, charcuterie…
TOILETRIES: Nuxe soap, shampoo and body wash.
LITTLE LUXURY: Doing a few laps in the sublime indoor pool… or chilling in one of the four Nordic baths.
