Lovely break in an English garden

Lovely Break Dans Un Jardin Anglais 680

Here you will feel as though you were in a Jane Austen novel. You find yourself on the other side of the Chanel, in a 16th century estate, Gravetye Manor, transformed into a “Relais & Châteaux”, hype and cozy, in the middle of an amazing14 ha floral garden ! A wonderful dream to end the Summer.

Nestled in the lovely Sussex countryside, this charming hotel, recently revamped according to the ground rules of British art of living, is an ideal transition to decompress between Summer and the first cooler days of Fall on a subtle background of digitals, asters, dahlias… and hydrangea. The gardens were designed in the 19th century by William Robinson, one of the leading English landscape artists.

Period furniture, fireplaces, oak panelling, superb flowery upholstery spread in the 17 rooms and suites that recreate, inside, the magic of the park. Throughout the entire hotel, the elegant and warm decor really takes you away from daily routine. Here you will be living in a chic and cool environment.

Same impression at the gastronomic restaurant.

The chef, Rupert Gleadow, a well-travelled Scotsman, has conceived a British-modern cuisine, inspired by his far-flung journeys and organic products that most of the time are grown locally …It’s hard to resist the “gourmet tea”, a delightful trap.

So without dwelling on it for took long, take advantage of the Fall rates and quickly fly out to Gatwick airport, located only 20 kms away …

Example: 1 night in a double room with English breakfast and dinner for 2 à la carte ( 3 dishes) : 220 € /person. Valid until 20 December.
