More than half a million visitors a year head to the pastoral fields at the Chateau Élan, flamboyantly styled like a French estate and just a 45-minute drive from Atlanta. Its 3,500 acres are covered in grapes, which feed the property's working winery. Executive winemaker Simone Bergese has won more than 60 awards while working for well-known wineries including Firriato Winery in Sicily -- and Chateau Élan itself has earned more than 200 awards.

Six restaurants cater to foodies of all types, offering hearty Italian food, fresh Mediterranean seafood, elegant French classics, and Irish comfort food (served in a pub that was built in Ireland and shipped piece-by-piece to Georgia). Cooking classes and demonstrations are hosted in the Viking Culinary Studio. There are also 63 holes of championship golf and a full-service spa with more than 30 treatment rooms.

From the press:
  • "Château Élan does indeed pack quite a punch with the amenities it provides" -- U.S. News & World Report
  • "Feels as if it belongs in another world: the pastoral, Impressionists' world of Southern France, to be precise" -- Gayot

I enjoyed the wine tasting.. And every one of the staff I encountered were awesome! I'd definitely go back when I get a deal or it's a little bit cheaper.. Was kind of expensive for just one night.. But overall, loved it!

The spa!

Great, clean resort. We spent time at the spa, Irish Pub, hotel Lounge, and pool. All were fabulous. However, this resort is in a pretty remote area and while there is plenty to do at the resort, everything pretty much shuts down at midnight.
