Loaded with charm, this refined château by the Vesles River has a Louis XIV facade, and the classic exterior somehow harmonizes nicely with the sweeping brass main staircase attributed to Jean Cocteau. Guest rooms inside the château range from small-ish to generously proportioned; while the former outbuildings have been converted into large family-size suites. Wind down in the bar before enjoying excellent fare (including seasonal game) prepared by chef Thibaut Serin-Moulin
and served up in the stately, 18th-century-style dining room. A formal garden and pool are the gateway to 40 acres of parkland and a tree-shaded canal.
