A family home and an acclaimed restaurant; a place for relaxation and well-being. Welcome to Cédric Enfert and Christelle Bertrand's hotel.
“Marrying tradition and modernity in a warm, friendly atmosphere.”
Cédric and Christelle; brother and sister. Heirs to a family history which, for 4 generations, has been devoted to the hotel and restaurant business. “It was our great-grandfather, Déobat Enfert, who created the Auberge des Maisons in 1912”. Déobat ran the business, with his wife Clémence at the stove. This family set-up was to continue right up until 2008, when Christelle took over the business side of affairs, with her brother, who had “trained with the greats”, in charge of the kitchens. And, as everything in Maisons-Lès-Chaources is family-run, their respective partners also joined them on their adventure: Stéphane as the sommelier, and Sophie the dining room manager. However, Aux Maisons, The Originals Relais is not just a restaurant. The former family farm, which has held 3 stars since the Eighties, is also a hotel in Maison-lès-Chaource, with 23 stylish and comfortable rooms. Not forgetting the 250 m2 spa : “In the past 100 years our little country inn has become a hotel that is bursting with charm!”.
Glass, wood, beautiful fabrics and lighting combine in perfect harmony in the 20 rooms and suites at Aux Maisons, The Originals Relais. Recently refurbished and decorated by Christelle and Vincent, they have a very modern feel to them, in sharp contrast with the hotel’s idyllic natural surroundings. With space, comfort and harmony, nothing has been left to chance in offering guests a wholly enjoyable experience.
- Non smoking room
- Air-conditioned room
Aux Maisons, The Originals Relais has 3 cosy dining rooms, all with air conditioning and luxurious décor. The main room of our Champagne-Ardenne hotel features pink and grey hues and a monumental fireplace, whilst the blue room or family room are the perfect place to discover Cédric’s gourmet cuisine: a treat for both the eyes and palate, with dishes that look just as good as they taste. A breakfast buffet is offered every morning.
On the outskirts of the Forest of Chaource, near to both Champagne and Burgundy vineyards (trips to independent winemakers’ cellars can be arranged), Aux Maisons, The Originals Relais is a place to relax, unwind, and focus on your well-being.
With an indoor pool heated to 29° all year round, a Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna, sensory experience shower, ice fountain, treatment rooms and much more, this 250 m2 well-being and relaxation space awaits you across the Hotel Aux Maisons, The Originals Relais inner courtyard. Please note that a fee is payable for certain facilities, and advance booking may be required.
THINGS TO SEE NEARBYExplore the majestic church in Chaource, which is home to two treasures - a 15th-century carved wooden manger, and a 12th-century Entombment sculpture - as well as two museums: a doll and cooperage museum in the village, and a cheese museum opposite Chaource church. Sporty types will find an 18-hole golf course on a magnificent estate in La Cordelière de Chaource, an equestrian club with a covered manège, and of course the Domaine Raid Découverte where anything goes from Quads to 4x4s, as well as a rope bridge. The nearby town of Troyes is also worth a visit.
What our customers say
"Comfortable rooms and amazing food"
We stayed for one night though it was our third time of staying at the hotel. The family room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. We also ate dinner in the restaurant enjoying amazing food and wine. The staff were attentive and helpful. Our two daughters really enjoyed their food too. The only thing we would change next time is that we turn up earlier to relax more and enjoy the pool!
Aux Maisons, The Originals Relais has 2 rooms available for use, which can accommodate between 10 and 120 people - perfect for your study days, conferences (whether residential or otherwise) and cocktail events (with or without dinner).
