When it comes to living out a French fantasy, there’s no beating Provence and, if it's romance you're after, you should seriously consider the Château de Mazan.
With 18th-century origins, this was the original family home of the Marquis de Sade and the château is everything you’d imagine. The décor, however, has been given a playful, modern facelift with elegant bedrooms, beautiful landscaped gardens and a rather lovely pool.
The restaurant is excellent, with fine dining to suit your fine surroundings, and the staff are wonderful. This is a family-run business and the level of service is high.
The hotel is pet-friendly, just be sure to contact the hotel ahead of travel to confirm (only certain rooms and extra charge applies).
L'Ingénue restaurant has a rather grand feel and serves an impressive 'Gourmet' menu most nights of the week, with a lower-key 'Bistro' offering at lunch (closed in the winter months). In the warmer months, enjoy dining al fresco on the hotel's pretty terrace or, when it's cooler, move inside to the historic dining room which is equally atmospheric.
A good breakfast is served.
Most of the 30 rooms are set in the château itself, with a handful housed in an 18th-century village house next door – though all are charming.
There is a lovely outdoor swimming pool set in the hotel's verdant gardens (open in the summer months).
The region is popular with cyclists and the hotel are able to arrange for bicycles to be delivered for use during your stay. There are plenty of activities nearby including kayaking in the Dentelles de Montmirail, hiking and there are two 18-hole golf courses within 30-minutes' drive.
