Chateau Les Crayeres

Top 10 Hotels in France

An aerial view of the historic Château Les Crayères in Reims


Château Les Crayères

This timeless treasure was built in the early 1900s for the Marquis and Marchioness of Polignac. Today, with tasteful interiors redesigned by Pierre-Yves Rochon, it is sophisticated as well as historic. Some of the 20 spacious guest rooms and suites in the chateau and accompanying cottage gaze upon Reims Cathedral, and all enjoy a feeling of seclusion within acres of private parkland. For gastronomes, Le Parc restaurant serves chef Philippe Mille's "inspiration menu" of seasonal French cuisine complemented by an excellent wine list boasting 600 Champagne labels. Le Jardin brasserie presents more casual fare (including treats from Mille's own childhood) in a contemporary venue with tables looking onto the gardens.
