Domaine des Hauts-de-Loire

79 rue Gilbert Navard, Onzain, 41150, France

Turreted and vine-covered, this 18th-century hunting lodge features an antiques-filled grand salon, a lovely pool, an adorable swan lake, and guest rooms that more often than not are simply beige and elegantly suave; those in the adjacent coach house can be considerably more spectacular—the best have exposed brick walls and timbered cathedral ceilings. Other amenities include a helipad, the most blissful air-conditioning in all Touraine, and a restaurant (closed Monday and Tuesday; no lunch weekdays October through April) with two Michelin stars that is famous for its style and quality—an evening here glows with sumptuous white bouquets, jeweled guests, and dazzling dishes like goose Rossini with mushroom risotto.
