The one-time home of Barbizon-school painter Charles Daubigny started out as a humble village abode in 1830; now it's been expanded and brought sumptuously up-to-date with contemporary interiors and features. Twenty luxe rooms are done up in an ultramodern style, with sleek furnishings in earth tones highlighted by splashes of color and rich parquet floors; spacious bathrooms with showers and whirlpool baths can be found in most rooms; other possible perks include beamed
cathedral ceilings and terraces overlooking the pool and garden. The onsite L'Atelier brasserie serves gourmet prix-fixe meals in a bright, painter's-studio atmosphere. Guilt-inclined diners can work out afterward in hotel’s spa-fitness center.
