Welcome to the les Collectionneurs community !

Who are we?

Created in 1975, Châteaux & Hôtels Collection has the ambition to become the benchmark of charming hotels and gourmet restaurants in Europe for world travellers. In its Collection the brand offers just under 500 unique addresses, mainly in France and Italy. Presided over by Alain Ducasse since 1999, the brand unites independent, passionate and resolutely contemporary hoteliers and chefs who imbue their properties with the ingredients that transform a moment into an experience. www.chateauxhotels.co.uk

A Collector at Heart

les Collectionneurs are 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 property in the Collection is unique, together they form a whole Charm is what brings these properties together and it creates a unity in diversity.For les Collectionneurs charm is alive and thriving, it is tangible and can be found in each and every address. It is expressed in the sincerity of each property,the hospitality and the generosity of the owners, and the quality of the services and the products.

Les Tables de la Collection

Whether a country house in Provence or the restaurant of a young chef, for les Collectionneurs the journey must be an experience. Beyond the hotel or restaurant service provided, the journey is one of discovery, surprise... and most of all an encounter with men and women passionate about their profession. The dining venues of these contemporary innkeepers resemble their path in life, their tastes and their culture. Guardians of this living heritage and creators of a new art de vivre, les Collectionneurs chefs support contemporary cuisine, one of singular and plural identity. les Collectionneurs' " Tables de la Collection" bring together this community of independent restaurant owners who, with their expertise and generosity, work daily to maintain the art of eating well.
