According to Lonely Planet, Troyes has "one of France’s finest ensembles of half-timbered houses and Gothic churches", and that "it’s one of the best places in France to get a sense of what Europe looked like back when Molière was penning his finest plays and the Three Musketeers were swashbuckling". Le Champ des Oiseaux fits right in -- it's housed in a fully restored 15th-century building.
Located in the Champagne region, about 110 miles southeast of Paris, Troyes is a medieval town on the Seine River. Popular activities in the area include wine tasting, horse riding, golf, kayaking, cycling and hiking.
A highlight of staying here is the French destination restaurant on site (open Tuesday- Saturday), which has an impressive wine list and serves dishes such as roast monkfish and Muscovy duck leg confit. Guests can dine al fresco in the medieval courtyard. The restaurant is closed Sundays and Mondays. The 14 cosy bedrooms feature exposed wooden beams and stone flooring. According to Alastair Sawday's Special Places to Stay, "each bedroom has a personality, some soberly sandy and brown, others frivolously floral; they vary in size and status but all are warmly discreet in their luxury and good furniture". Free amenities include Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs; extra charges apply for breakfast (20€) and pets (15€).
