Château d'Esclimont was built for the Archbishop of Tours in 1543 and, since then, has been the home of aristocrats, statesmen and politicians principally because of its proximity to Versailles and Paris. Today, it stands supreme within a 150-acre wooded park surrounded by its moats and pond, the epitome of the perfect French château.

The interiors are superb examples of renaissance elegance where the old and the new coexist very comfortably. If you are visiting Paris, allow yourself time off to experience the serenity and grand indulgence of Esclimont - about an hour's drive south. The estate provides an array of sporting facilities including one of the most romantic settings for a swimming pool imaginable.

From the towers, belfries and delightful grounds to the pretty bedrooms with fresh flowers, balconies with filigree railin gs and the calming moat below - everything in this hotel has a sense of true romance, and all with typical French flourish.

Traditional haute cuisine and a choice of over 400 wines from the cellar served in the magnificent dining room will transport you to new heights of pleasure. The memory will endure !

Located at the edge of the Loire and at the foot of the Royal Castle of Amboise, homeland of Leonardo da Vinci, the hotel Le Choiseul is a charming house typically from Tours built in 18th century. The hotel enjoys an exceptional location in the heart of the Valley of Loire castles.

Once a gilded place of exile for one of Louis XV's ministers, Le Choiseul is an ideal starting point for visiting the royal castles of the Loire Valley and for enjoying refined cuisine and reputed wines.

Le Choiseul is composed of three residences (18th century), which rooms have a view over the gardens and the Loire. In the restaurant, overlooking the river or the gardens, the cuisine is light, delicate and with subtle local influences, and has won recommendations in the guides. Our cellar holds more than 15,000 bottles. The Loire region is well represented, but you can also find Pétrus and Richebourg.

Three intimate residences house the 32 elegantly decorated, air-conditioned bedrooms: the Maison du Duc, the Maison de l'Apothicaire and the Maison de l'Ermite.

It is a must in Provence regarding antiques, and it is a bargain hunter's paradise. Antique dealers and flea market traders have been settling here for over 30 years, and there are currently almost 400 of them, giving l'Isle sur la Sorgue the charm and prestigious reputation it is known for. It is one of the most important towns in France for antiques. L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, located on the banks of the river Sorgue, offers lovely views of the old paddle wheels that have provided energy for the silk and wool industry since the 12th century. L'Isle sur la Sorgue is nicknamed 'Venice Comtadine', 'Venice' for its similarities with Venice, a major Italian town of art and culture, and 'Comtadine' as the town was at the heart of the Comtat-Venaissin region (now known as the Vaucluse). The Comtat-Venaissin belonged to the Pope from 1274 until 1791. L'Isle sur la Sorgue became part of France in 1791, at the end of the Pope's reign.

Graves

Graves

Originally planted on the very outskirts of Burdigala (Roman name for Bordeaux) in the first centuries of the Roman occupation, the vineyard region of Graves is the cradle of great Bordeaux wines. The wines of the Graves are unique in France in bearing the name of their soil: Gravels of Bordeaux, as a reminder of the major role played by the soil in determining the quality of the wine.

You will be able to visit the Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte. Famous around the world for its wonderfully elegant red wine and the sophisticated bouquet of its white, Smith Haut Lafitte undoubtedly deserves the special care that is lavished on it. You will also visit the Château Olivier, an amazing building dating from the 13th century, which produces one of the best wines of the region. For many years, Château Olivier has brought together the present and the past by making wines of great art in an estate that is the stuff of legends. Fashioned by the earth in which they are grown, shaped by all those who work the vines day after day, the wines of Château Olivier are a magnificent expression of their appellation among the six Classified Growths of Graves in red and white. The recent geological discoveries in the two gravel mounds of Olivier have confirmed the richness and diversity of an outstanding viticultural heritage, passed down by those who once contributed to the building of the fine reputation of Bordeaux’s great growths.
