4 Relais & Châteaux properties on the CNN awards list of the most beautiful hotels in Europe

The well-known American news channel has classed four of our Relais & Châteaux properties among the twenty most beautiful hotels in Europe. From the blue sea in Portugal to the gardens overlooking the River Thames, this is your chance to discover or rediscover some of our most beautiful properties!

In the south of Portugal, the delightful intimacy which reigns over Bela Vista is honoured. This 19th-century former family home boasts windows overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The property, which became the Algarve's very first hotel in 1934, continues to set the tempo of life beside the waves.

In France, the superb Villa Gallici stands out. Nestled in the heart of Aix-en-Provence, this Florentine residence celebrates the past. Its rich upholstery and hand-decorated Chinese wallpaper have set it apart from a large number of hotels.

Gravetye Manor and its spectacular views of the English countryside have attracted attention in the county of Sussex. A stone's throw from London, Cliveden House is also celebrated for its tranquillity and atmosphere which resembles that of a large family home.
