French Chateaux and Hotels Special Places to Stay by

This is a seductive collection of over 350 hotels, chateaux, auberges and other places - beautiful, unusual and great value. All are selected and inspected by us and are here because we like them. Dip in and find over 100 chateaux, with towers & turrets; stay in a humble auberge in Alpes de Haute Provence, a stone mill in Burgundy or live it up in a boutique hotel in Biarritz. At inns, or restaurants with rooms, food takes priority - most of it is seasonal, fresh and local; in the chateaux, intimate dinners are often hosted around communal tables. Travelling with company? Book an entire hamlet on a mountaintop in the Pyrenees!


Sawday unearths the most beguiling chateaux, auberges and hotels, all offering excellent food and liberal libations of wine. - The Telegraph

An expertly selected range of the most inspiring bolt holes in the country. - French Magazine

If it's special you're after then Sawday's your man. - Living France

About the Author

A pioneer in the environmental world, Alastair Sawday has had a remarkably miscellaneous and varied career, which has taken him to the most far-flung corners of the globe: he headed up a VSO programme in Papua New Guinea, ran a disaster relief team for Oxfam in Turkey, and has run a small travel company, conducting walking tours throughout Europe.It was this that inspired him to publish his first travel guide, French Bed & Breakfast, after discovering various 'special' B&Bs and the extraordinary people that run them
