A fabulously opulent French château in the Loire Valley's Montbazon, with fine dining and a superb spa – includes spa access, breakfast and late check-out

With an exterior modelled on the grand 18th-century Château de Champlâteux, and interiors inspired by the Palace of Versailles, staying at Château d’Artigny is a luxurious treat. Built in the 1920s by a famous French parfumier, the original manor house was torn down to make way for the glamorous incarnation that exists today. The château once hosted legendary parties in the frescoed rotunda, and the old-time pomp and service exists today with a concierge who will rise to any challenge.

Spend relaxing afternoons touring the Loire, borrowing bikes to pedal around the estate, playing boules or walking in the 60 acres of woods and beautifully maintained gardens.

The chateau’s 56 elegant rooms and suites have been traditionally appointed with elegant draped curtains and matching bedspreads. Sprigged florals are enhanced by period wooden furniture and tasseled lamps, which light the room with a gentle glow. Superior rooms are located in the Pavilion, situated just opposite the main building. Views overlook the garden and park, so you can enjoy the Loire’s stunning surroundings from the moment you wake up.
