Founded in 1975, the group comprises of hotels and restaurants carefully selected for their authenticity, personality and charm, mainly in France and Italy.
Driven by its mission “To Discover, Guide and Help Discover”, Châteaux & Hôtels Collection is all about curiosity, discovering new places, unearthing them and collecting them like souvenirs to be shared. With an average of 29 rooms per property, none of its member is like any other; each has its own special character harmoniously united in the collection.
The brand stands against standardisation and champions independent hospitality encapsulated by its slogan “le charme, le vrai”. Similarly, Châteaux & Hôtels Collection cultivates the generous values of fine dining and authentic cuisine with a strong focus on supporting the growth of young talented chefs, committed to using regional products.
Châteaux & Hôtels Collection celebrates 40 years in 2015 with 520 hotels and restaurants in 16 countries.
“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. 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.
