Châteaux & Hôtels Collection

“Whether it’s a bastide in Provence or the restaurant of a young chef in Italy, the journey has to be an experience. Beyond providing a service, this is a discovery, a surprise… and above all an encounter with men and women with a passion for their trade. Leave the well-trodden paths to those lacking in imagination. Opt for authentic charm and take yourself off down less well-known paths, they lead straight to happiness.”

Alain Ducasse,
President of Châteaux & Hôtels Collection

Châteaux & Hôtels Collection is all about curiosity in discovering new places, in unearthing them and collecting them like souvenirs to be shared with others. None of its member properties is like any other; each has its own special character.

Although each piece in the collection is unique, together they form a whole. Charm is what brings these properties together, is what creates unity in diversity. For Châteaux & Hôtels Collection charm is alive and thriving, it is tangible and can be found from one property to another. This charm is expressed in the sincerity of each property, the hospitality and the generosity of the owners, the quality of the services and the products.

The unique Châteaux & Hôtels Collection is showcased on its website chateauxhotels.com and in its bilingual French-English Guide available free-of-charge in all member properties of the collection.

Part of the establishments tradition, 7 classic dishes make a big comeback to Allard, to the delight of regular customers and curious gourmets. In the spotlight: 7 dishes of the day, "classics" that are an integral part of Allard history.

Fernande Allard’s traditional cassoulet; Pan-seared lamb chops, cooking jus; Veal kidneys, Madère sauce… All the dishes perfectly illustrate Marthe Allard’s cuisine, followed by that of fernande Allard, her daughter in law. Honest and sincere dishes carrying certain nobility.

Every day, Marthe suggested a different dish. Fernande perpetuated the tradition of the “dish of the day”. This precious heritage continues to inspire Chef Laetitia with the “Allard Classic 7”.
