Classic French castles
France is blessed with some of the most alluring castles in the world. Castles, or châteaux, in France, were usually stately homes or palaces. They were formerly the residences of nobles and the gentry.
A large number of French castles were built between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries. They are often grand palaces and the architectural styles are frequently ornate and luxurious. The world-renowned Château de Versailles, for example, is perhaps the grandest palace in the world.
Landscape and wine
French châteaux are usually set in beautiful grounds and may be surrounded by a moat. Castle planners chose locations carefully for the best views and landscapes. Thus, modern castle hotels are great for those looking for a scenic treat.
Historic castles in France are often associated with wine production. Many of the most famous wines are known by their château names. For example, Château Margaux, Château Latour, or Château Pichon Baron. There are also some fantastic Loire Valley castle hotels, which is a superb destination for wine lovers.
