Domaine des Étangs

Domaine des Étangs

The French countryside is not short on château hotels with magnificent gardens. But the Domaine des Étangs, in the pastoral Charentes département, takes the conceit to a whole new level. This restful retreat, once the vacation home of the Primat-Schlumberger family, is set on 2,500 practically virgin acres. And it’s all yours to roam in total freedom, be it on horseback, mountain bike, or in an electric car. As for the main house, rising design star Isabelle Stanislas restored the 11th-century building’s great bones, mixing in chic contemporary furniture and fixtures by Philippe Nigro and Michael Anastassiades (along with some pieces of her own design), and photography and art by the likes of Hiroshi Sugimoto and Hans-Peter Feldmann. Six old stone cabins are also bookable for families, a rare consideration in the French five-star universe. Visit Hotel Page

Nizuc Resort and Spa

Originally conceived by Denniston International, NIZUC Resort and Spa features open, airy spaces, Asian-inspired elements, and tranquil reflecting pools. The property was designed with three distinct atmospheres to fit the needs of every guest: Ocean Suites, Residence Suites, and Garden Pool Villas, which cater to each traveler’s unique style and comfort. At NIZUC, architect and interior designer Alejandro Escudero balances existing structures with soothing colors, organic fabrics, and layouts emphasizing the natural landscape. Escudero’s touch is evident in every facet of the resort aesthetic, from in-suite photography and artwork to the living green walls outside Café de la Playa.

Throughout the resort, he artfully employs glass and open space to frame the turquoise water and white sand, inducing a sense of natural calm. View Full Article
