53 rooms and suites

Special features
Princely rooms come with richly coordinated fabrics, parquet floors, tall windows and plump pillows. Most have a CD player, widescreen TV and private salon. Chandeliered suites have huge canopied or four poster beds.

Pillow Talk
Splash out on one of the sumptuous suites in the chateau itself, or opt for one of the historic lodges alongside, where you get best views of the turrets and gardens.

Eat & Drink

Dining in
You’ll find traditional French favourites with a modern twist here, such as codfish candied in olive oil and served on a bed of spinach and creole sauce. Before you get to the fabulous mains you'll need to try the starters, aptly named ‘premier plaisir’. But with jumbo black tiger shrimp marinated in ginger sauce and smoked wild salmon with homemade blinis and sour cream on offer, that's not too much of a hardship.

Buffet breakfast is served until 10:30am, though late risers can breakfast till 11am in their rooms.

Room service
Available 24/7.


See & Do
Float away in a hot air balloon ride, or explore the French, English and Italian style gardens if you prefer terra firma. Nearby Chartres is perfect for a day trip, with the cathedral and stained glass museum being must-sees. Paris is less than an hour away if you want some big city buzz. Staff at Château d'Esclimont will hire out bicycles to you, and gladly point you in the direction of secluded woodland walks.

Diary Dates
Chocoholics can guzzle their way through the Paris Chocolate Fair – satisfaction guaranteed.
