Hotel Château du Grand-Lucé. Located in the verdant Loire Valley, just south of Paris, this exclusive private enclave of royal proportions was built by a nobleman and has hosted the most discerning travelers for centuries. Built in 1760 and named for the idyllic village in which it is located, this neoclassical French icon has been exquisitely restored. With a vigilant attention to detail, its unapologetically opulent chic interiors are a stunning tribute to its noble provenance and are a gallant steward of its rich history. With a certain éclat reflecting centuries of pure refinement, Hotel Château – with reimagined rooms and suites, ballroom and salons, classical gardens and grounds will deliver unparalleled service and uncompromising splendor.
