Morgon (Beaujolais, Burgundy, France)
After a day touring the the Beaujolais wine region, bed down for a posh chateau stay in this medieval castle hotel and spa, nestled amongst 75 hectares of estate vines replete with a suitably regal landscaped garden.
In summer, dinner is served in the castle’s courtyard, with the gastronomic restaurant dishing up refined modern french fare perfectly matching the chateau’s estate wines (all of which can be sampled in the on-site oenotheque and cellar door, or more intimately in one of the art-filled bar’s plush leather sofas).
Rooms are built into the renovated chateau annexe, or in a separate building adjoining the spa and overlooking the pool, and combine modern amenities with antique decoration. Spend your stay playing tennis (rackets and balls provided), relaxing by the heated swimming pool, or strolling through the property’s gardens and vines.
