Just a two-hour drive from Paris, the Royal Champagne is a hotel with a luxury spa that is highly regarded in the region. Nestling overlooking the vineyards, the hotel boasts 47 rooms and suites with sublime views over the wine-growing landscape. Bathed in soft light, these accommodations boast an elegant, modern design worthy of France’s finest upmarket hotels. Two restaurants complete the picture: the brasserie Le Bellevue, with its 180-degree panoramic view over the Epernay and Marne valleys, and the Michelin-starred Le Royal, which serves its menus in a princely salon decorated as a tribute to Napoleon, who is said to have slept here several centuries ago. While the Royal Champagne offers a wide range of activities, its spa is a destination in its own right. The 1,500 m2 space includes nine treatment rooms, two indoor and outdoor pools (with incredible views of the surroundings), a hammam, a sauna, a whirlpool, a yoga studio and a fitness room. The massages, developed in partnership with the beauty brands myBlend and Clarins Precious, are as invigorating as they are relaxing. The perfect destination for a romantic weekend away.

 

Baumanière

Located in the Alpilles mountains, in the picturesque village of Les Baux-de-Provence, Baumanière is set in exceptional natural surroundings. The five-star hotel is built around the Oustau, a historic building dating back to the 16th century that houses 10 rooms, a three-star Michelin restaurant and a vast outdoor swimming pool. 900 metres away is Le Manoir, an 18th-century residence with 13 rooms overlooking a garden of white roses. The Carita and Flora buildings, on the other side of the property, have 14 and 12 rooms respectively, all tastefully decorated by owner Geneviève Charial. The luminous 500m2 spa fits perfectly into this Provencal setting. Made of wood and adorned with large white curtains, this wellness address, which opens onto a patio and aromatic garden, has six treatment rooms (featuring Sisley and Une Olive en Provence products), a hammam, a sauna, a sensory pool and a fitness room. For even more relaxation, treat yourself to a personalised yoga session. For seminars or private events in Provence, this is also the ideal venue, with the appropriate facilities and activities.

 

Fleur de Loire

Between Tours and Orléans, this Relais & Châteaux nestling on the banks of the Loire in Blois is housed in a historic building, built on the orders of King Louis XIII’s brother, Gaston d’Orléans. An ode to the French art of living and the heritage of the Loire, and a hotel close to Paris that is a favourite of the editors of the travel magazine www.yonder.fr, the property has 44 refined rooms, decorated with beautiful textiles and comforting colours. The Fleur de Loire hotel is renowned for its gourmet restaurant, led by chef Christophe Hay, which has been awarded two Michelin stars, a green star and four toques in the Gault & Millau guide. And don’t forget the Amour Blanc restaurant, which focuses on French cuisine. Just as luxurious, the 450m2 spa, owned by the Sisley brand, respects Christophe Hay’s local approach. It features a large, intimate indoor pool and an outdoor pool overlooking the Loire. A whirlpool, sauna, hammam and treatment rooms complete the experience.

 

Le Coucou Méribel

Close to the Italian border, the Coucou Méribel stands as a prestigious institution among ski resorts. Open during the winter season, this establishment at the foot of the slopes combines mountain charm with contemporary, elegant decor. The 55 rooms and suites and two self-catering chalets, all with uninterrupted views of the snow-capped peaks, are based on the traditional chalet style but with an atmosphere worthy of the finest luxury hotels. Three restaurants cater for all palates, from the Beefbar to the Italian Biancaneve and the cheese-focused Fumoir. This trendy jewel of Méribel is also known for its 450m2 spa, recognisable by its large picture windows and designer arches. After a day on the slopes, this space, featuring Tata Harper products, is a real blessing. Soak up the sun in the outdoor pool and the indoor pool, and try the L’Alpin treatment, a signature massage that drains and re-oxygenates.

 

Royal Evian

On the shores of Lake Geneva on the Swiss border, in a wooded park of 19 hectares, the Royal Evian rests in a landscape between water and mountains. The decor of this luxury hotel oscillates between the world of the Belle Epoque and modern elegance, with touches of Art Deco and Art Nouveau. 118 rooms and 32 suites are spread over six floors, allowing guests to enjoy magnificent views from the terraces. On the gastronomic front, the one-star Les Fresques restaurant and the La Véranda and L’Oliveraie restaurants are led by chef Patrice Vander. And not least, the evian®Spa, the first in Europe, was given a makeover in 2024. The 1700m2 are divided between an aquatic area with a sumptuous swimming pool and a treatment area based on a concept inspired by the water cycle. Not to be missed!
