A peaceful, luxurious setting. A very generous restaurant. Hosts as sparkling as the regional drink. Welcome to Peter and Heidi Bruneel's hotel.
"Being available to guests all day long and coming up with fun and relaxing itineraries for them."
Cooking is more than a job to Peter, it's a passion! "At eight, I was already making Béarnaise sauce in the family kitchen." After a hotel management course where he met Heidi, the Belgian couple started out in an Ardennes restaurant before "embarking on a new adventure in France". They found their little slice of heaven in Rozières-Près-Troyes, near Troyes, a land of fields and forests at the bottom of a cul-de-sac. Resort Residence Pierre, The Originals Relais opened in 2009 following renovations, new buildings and a new pool. Its motto is, "come and enjoy some comfort and bubbles". Not only do the Bruneels like invigorating cuisine, they love champagne. The bar has a champagne theme while some of the hotel's 16 rooms are named after different bottle sizes.

The 16 rooms at Resort Residence Pierre, The Originals Relais are split between the main house and the two buildings added by Pierre and Heidi. Spacious, tastefully decorated, modern, understated and fully equipped, they have all the comforts you need for quiet, restful nights. They take their names from Iranian prophets and the names of various champagne bottle sizes.
- Non smoking room
- Air-conditioned room
- Cable and/or satellite television
The buffet breakfast has been called "generous, delicious and irresistible!". Here, Peter's generosity is on display from the morning with bread, cooked meats and jam, all home-made. Lunch and dinner are all about regional cuisine with Belgian flavours, "because we're proud of our country's cuisine," the chef tells us. Would you like to chat with Peter while enjoying a glass of champagne at the bar? No problem, the kitchen opens onto the dining room. And, if you wish, you can even slip on an apron and take a tour of the kitchen.
Whether you're on holiday or passing through, the Hotel The Originals is an experience in itself. The setting and owners will ensure an unforgettable stay in the beautiful region of Aube, Champagne. And why not explore it with the electric car provided by the hotel?
THINGS TO DO
A beautiful, huge swimming pool awaits at Resort Residence Pierre, The Originals Relais. Those more partial to bubbles (not in a glass, for once) can head to the jacuzzi. Strategy and brainstorming addicts might like to try out a game of chess on the giant chessboard in the estate's courtyard. And those looking to explore the region on two wheels can rent bikes.
