Set at the very heart of the Valley of the Kings, The Hauts de Loire makes an indescribable impression, the sort of impression you get from a place where those in the know come to enjoy the comforts of a 19th-Century hunting lodge that is now devoted entirely to good living and the simpler, subtler pleasures in life.
There’s nothing like the promise of a great meal that will in itself provide a new experience to guarantee an enjoyable day out in the countryside.
Thankfully, this is one of the promises that the Hauts de Loire certainly delivers on. Chef Remy Giraud, who has held two Michelin stars for the past 25 years, has been running the kitchens here for over 30 years and keeps a firm handle on all of the dining options available at the establishment.
With its carefully-appointed yet comfortable surroundings evocative of a family home and decorated with antique prints and artefacts with a history all of their own, this is the place to come to satisfy an appetite for highly authentic dishes, including meats cooked on a spit or in the region’s one and only coal-fired oven, stuffed quail, and veal sausage patties, among other things. These typical regional dishes are served in a dining room topped with imposing beams and overlooking the vegetable garden.
The Spa by Clarins pulls out all the stops when it comes to well-being and is surely all the invitation you need to relax and unwind during your stay.
Featuring soothing red, white and wooden decor, the comfortable and spacious treatment rooms are truly a sight to behold and designed to ensure that you experience the sort of relaxation you’ve never experienced before. There’s no better place to let go and unwind and enjoy some quality ‘me time’ tailored especially to your needs.
Why not combine a relaxing break in the Hauts de Loire with an opportunity to improve your culinary skills with a leading chef ?
This is the idea behind Rémy Giraud’s Art des Mets programme, which invites both curious participants and those with a passion for gastronomy to spend a few hours at the stoves.
You can’t put a price on knowing that the kids are having as much fun as their parents on their visit to the Hauts de Loire!
It was with this in mind that the Kids Club, designed exclusively with our younger visitors in mind, was created, complete with toys, games and other activities that are sure to guarantee that a good time is had by all. The pleasant surroundings have been created with the emphasis very much on happiness and safety, providing the ideal place for your little ones to play and have fun!
