An escape-it-all hideaway in the unspoiled Loire Valley, with a lovely spa and riverside restaurant - includes breakfast, spa access, plus dinner and spa treatment option
- Occupying a former 19th-century paper mill near Le Lude in Pays-de-la-Loire, Domaine de la Courbe oozes traditional country charm and character in an idyllic riverside location. Simple yet welcoming rooms are housed in the original main building or a separate one-storey annexe in the grounds.
- On top of featuring calming river views, the restaurant serves classic French fare with the odd modern twist, using locally sourced produce and seasonal ingredients – think dishes like sautéed snails with wild mushrooms in garlic-parsley butter and camembert cream sauce; roasted duck fillet with orange sauce, rosemary, vanilla and sweet potato; and a decadent clementine mousse, giant macaron and two chocolate sauces for pudding.
- Take some time off in the 300-square-metre spa, take in a lovely indoor 29 degree-heated pool that glitters invitingly beneath exposed-stone arches, along with whirlpool baths, a steam room and hydro-massage treatment cabin. You can also enjoy a soothing massage or body treatment (extra charge applies). Outdoors, you'll also find a pool, open between May and September.
