Tucked away in the hills overlooking the Woüvre Valley, Hattonchâtel Château is a special hideaway—perfect for a romantic weekend or a special event.
Gables, towers, and chimneys cast a medieval ambiance both inside and out, while tapestries and stone fireplaces make guest rooms snug and inviting. All have views of the garden or terrace. Six of the eleven guest rooms have large, en suite, Victorian-style bathrooms feature free-standing bathtubs. Four double rooms and a children’s room in the Tower share two bathrooms, as well as a fully equipped kitchen.
Historically noteworthy, the “La Salle de Burgraves” dining hall, with its original stone pillars and church-style windows, attract visitors in its own right. Unfortunately, it is only open for special functions, but you can certainly have a look.
The château doesn’t have a regular restaurant, but you can order a highly recommended, candlelight, gourmet dinner in advance, and enjoy it in front of the castle’s open fireplace.
Breakfast is served at the château. For other meals, you can either stroll into the village and find a restaurant there or take advantage of the château’s self-catering kitchen.
