“Nature is a source of inspiration to be translated into emotions”
Tucked away amidst the Loire châteaux in the Sologne region's capital of Romorantin, the town that inspired Leonardo da Vinci to visit France, this Renaissance-era mansion has been welcoming in visitors since 1774, and is now run by the Clément family. From the Renaissance wing to the Napoleon III balconies, the 16 bedrooms here are embellished with authentic old materials, mirrors, woodwork and flagstones, all fully renovated by Marie-Christine and Didier Clément. Chef Didier Clément pours his talent and artful touch into developing groundbreaking natural flavors in dishes designed to sit alongside an incredible wine list, in which the wines of the Loire Valley are given pride of place. A delectable moment to be savored.
