Fodor's Review

This five-star luxury retreat has eco-friendly accommodations, from the natural materials used in the rooms to organic coffee and cuisine. It's also hobbit-friendly: they have a themed Lord of the Rings room. The rooms have mountain views and are surrounded by trees and gardens, and facilities include a spa, tennis court, pétanque and mountain bikes. Rates include elegant breakfast, regional wine tastings and hors d'oeuvres; you can also arrange for dinner.
