The Castles tour takes you on a 5 to 12 days journey across France’s most beautiful castles

here we offer you the opportunity to discover France’s numerous hotels particuliers.

The so called hotels particuliers are mansions, urban residences that have become a symbol of the architectural heritage of France. These buildings, which date back to the 17th and 18th centuries, were built for aristocratic and bourgeois families, and are characterized by their elegant architecture, large interior spaces and lush gardens. Private mansions are often located in the historic districts of major cities in France, such as Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux or Toulouse. They are often adorned with sculptures, wrought iron balconies and columns, bearing witness to the opulence and sophistication of bygone eras. Some mansions are now open to the public, such as the Hôtel de Soubise and the Hôtel de Rohan, which respectively house the National Archives and the Museum of Arts et Métiers in Paris. Others have been converted into museums, hotels, or private residences. Private mansions are also known for their magnificent gardens, often inspired by French gardens, such as the Luxembourg Gardens in Paris. These gardens, often decorated with fountains, sculptures and shady walkways, offer an experience of relaxation and tranquility in an urban setting. The mansions in France are a real architectural treasure, witnesses of the history and the cultural richness of the country. By touring these buildings, visitors can experience the elegance and sophistication of French architecture, while exploring fascinating historic neighborhoods and immersing themselves in the culture of France.
