Relais de Chambord is a study in understated elegance. Situated on the banks of the Cosson River in the shadow of The Château de Chambord, this refined boutique hotel occupies the 16th century building that once housed King Francis I’s stables. Guests can take advantage of the proximity to the estate, which includes manicured formal gardens and an extensive UNESCO-designated 13,500 acres of surrounding forest. Tour the domain on foot, bicycle, horseback, and even hot air balloon, or head to nearby châteaux in a vintage 2CV. There's also an elegant bar and restaurant with a terrace facing the castle, as well as a spa with outdoor hot tub.
