Fresh from winning a Michelin star for chef Jean-Alexandre Ouaratta’s gastronomic French cuisine, Château de Bagnols has upped its game. Europe’s best fairytale castle-hotel comes complete with a moat, landscaped gardens, a spa, and a fabulous glassed-in courtyard. Prices are competitive considering the antiques, paintings, and art that fill the mansion. Guest suites are generously sized with antique beds, period velvets, and Parisian designer Hermès toiletries.
