Why We Love This Hotel

  • This fairytale moated castle is in the Champagne countryside
  • It once hosted kings of France & Napoleon
  • Epernay's champagne houses are nearby & Reims is an hour away
  • Breakfast includes champagne & guests can borrow bikes for free 


Le Château d'Etoges is a fairytale castle surrounded by parkland and vineyards in the heart of the Champagne region. Built on the foundations of a 12th-century fortress, the current building dates from the 17th century and was used as a staging post by the royal family when they travelled between Paris and Strasbourg. After the revolution, it played host to Napoleon and his entourage.

The hotel is on the outskirts of Etoges, a small village in the Champagne region. Epernay, home to champagne houses like Moët & Chandon and Perrier-Jouët, is a 25-minute drive away. For something more unusual, drive 45 minutes to the National Forest of Verzy (Faux de Verzy), which is famous for its dwarf beech trees, which have unusual twisted forms. The hotel is an hour's drive from Reims, which has a Roman triumphal arch, Art Nouveau buildings and "one of the most impressive Gothic cathedrals in France" (Rough Guides). Paris is about two hours' drive away, and Calais can be reached in around three hours.

The hotel's Orangerie restaurant serves typical French dishes and regional cheeses. The buffet breakfast includes local produce like organic baguettes, seasonal fruit, apple juice and even champagne (7:30-10am). There is also a spa with a hammam (steam room), a Jacuzzi and a sauna. It is open 3-7pm Monday-Friday, 10am-7:30pm Saturday and 9am-7:30pm Sunday. Guests can borrow bikes for free, explore 18 acres of gardens and woodland, and play table football, table tennis or pétanque.

Orangery rooms are in the Orangery building next door to the château, and are more modern. Wi-Fi is free.
