Fodor's Review

The medieval fortress thought to have inspired the tale of "Sleeping Beauty" is today a small luxury hotel, complete with domed turrets, spiral staircases,and tower rooms with four-poster beds and spa baths. Sitting on the crest of a hill, surrounded by a forest of ancient oaks, wild deer, and boar, the castle's an understandably popular spot for weddings and honeymoons. Game and fresh trout are served in the hotel's excellent restaurant ($$–$$$), which also specializes in rose-themed dishes, including pasta and desserts made with the flowers.
