Stylish stay at fairytale-like château in the wine paradise of Châteauneuf-du-Pape in France’s Rhône Valley - with breakfast, wine tastings and more

There’s a stately vibe at this four-star château located in Châteauneuf-du-Pape - the stunning Rhône Valley village between the towns of Orange and Avignon that’s famous for its full-bodied red wines made mostly from the southern Rhône grape trio (Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre). Built in the late 19th century, Château des Fines Roches has an illustrious history; not least as the former home to renegade aristocrat Folco de Baroncelli (otherwise known as the Marquis de Baroncelli).

While the fairytale-like exterior wows with stroll-worthy manicured lawns and a fabulous outdoor terrace for summertime wining and dining, the understated interiors are the most inspiring. All of the 11 guest rooms are uniquely-styled, with each assuring Provençal décor and very tasteful soft furnishings. You can also expect four-poster beds dressed with luxe linens, private bathrooms with bathtubs or showers, flatscreen TVs, and sublime views across the grounds.

Days here can be spent vineyard-hopping (there’s around 3,200 hectares of vineyards and over 80 growers), exploring the countryside by bike, and visiting nearby Avignon for its UNESCO-listed historic city centre and magnificent Palais des Papes. Post-sightseeing, head back to this charming place to dine at La Table des Fines Roches - the hotel’s signature restaurant where ingredient-driven gourmet French fare is (unsurprisingly) paired with some truly incredible wines.
