One of our favourite places in the Roannais, Château de Champlong, has achieved 4-star hotel status. Recognised in the region for being a superb restaurant in beautiful surroundings, Château de Champlong is going from strength to strength. with excellent food, service, facilities, and hotel. All owned and managed by Olivier Boizet (chef de cuisine) and his wife Véronique (maitre d’hotel et restaurant). A perfect place to spend some high quality time!
Olivier Boizet has a passion for flavour and respects his ingredients; his cuisine is modelled on what he himself likes to eat: gourmet food, an author’s cuisine, created in harmony with the seasons.
A cuisine which is up-to-date but not based on passing fads, contemporary but with no fashionable flourishes. Creativity at its essence, and a sense of flavour.
He is in a region where the soil is rich and he has special relationships with all his suppliers who are often small producers.
He is inspired by seasonal change and reinvents French-inspired dishes, allowing the ingredients to express every one of their subtle nuances.
The Château de Champlong, located right in the heart of the Roannais region, is set in lush green countryside. This charming 17th century mansion, converted into a château in the 18th century and refurbished throughout by its owners, restaurateurs proud of their native region, offers the unique combination of a warm family atmosphere and a restaurant renowned throughout the entire region. Supported by their dynamic team, Véronique and Olivier Boizet’s hospitality is welcoming and personalised: the art of hospitality Roannais-style!
Château de Champlong 4- star hotel is also special.
The theme of spices runs through twelve distinct and welcoming rooms, tucked away inside the Château, some in the attic spaces. Saffron, Star Anise, Nutmeg, Malabar Pepper, Coriander, Cardamom, Poppy Seed, Liquorice, Mace, Aniseed, Cinnamon and Paprika, names which evoke distant horizons, a veritable invitation to travel… They all enjoy natural light and views over the grounds with its hundred-year-old trees, and are the perfect haven of peace. They are light and spacious, with a decidedly contemporary yet elegant decor. Dark wood and dashes of warm colour combine to produce a feeling of sweet harmony, an ideal restfulness for body and spirit.
They all boast a jet shower or bath, bathrobe, telephone, free Wifi Internet connection, flat-screen TV, safe, mini-bar and a welcome basket (provided free of charge).
