Domaine Des Hauts De Loire, Onzain

Posted on January 12, 2011 | HotelsNo Comment

Nestled on the wine course in Loir-et-Cher, Domaine Des Hauts De Loire is among the ideal French chateaux hotels, which was formerly a hunting lodge of the 1860. It is aptly located in the zone that is famous among the tourists for the lavishness of its chateaux – the outskirts of the Onzain village accessible within two hours from Paris. This ivy-covered manor boasts a more luxuriously scenic atmosphere rather than a protective one. The roofs beneath the eaves busy singing will surely entice the fans of nature via its appeal amidst a private lake, forest, and a classical-modern cuisine. Yes, Domaine Des Hauts De Loire is flanked by parkland that also offers tennis courts, wooded trails, pool, and a pond of swans for postcard photos. If you are more adventurous, the hotel also arranges for the hot air balloon as well as helicopter rides of the Loire valley full of chateaux.

Nestled within 3 km range of the Chateau de Chaumont, Domaine Des Hauts De Loire rises on the opposite of the Loire valley. In this area, this Relais & Chateaux property is the most pleasing break with its rooms adorned in Empire or Louis Philippe pattern. This aristocratic settlement is just situated across Chaumont (its river) as a turreted, stuffed grand salon adorned with the antiques, a helipad, and a shimmering pool.


Over 50% rooms are in a bit less-wanted half-timbered possession, which were formerly stables. However, each of the guest rooms is polite and taupe, but those in the nearby coach house are comparatively spectacular adorned in brick walls as well as timbered cathedral top.

The rooms are 36 in total of which there are double rooms ranging from €150 to €300 and suites whose rates are between €350 and €580. No matter which you choose, all of them are chic and confined to the refined touch of antiques as well as big modern bathrooms. Those nestled in the carriage house are comparatively bigger and more modern. Within the rooms, one can expect high-speed Internet access, TVs with cable/satellite channels, air conditioning, phone, free local calls, wake-up calls, safe, hair dryer, and alarm clock.
