Surrounded by the idyllic wine region of northeast France, the luxurious hotel-spa Le Domaine de la Klauss is the perfect destination for your next countryside escape.
“Every season is beautiful here,” smiles Aurélia Wieseler-Henry, deputy director of the four-star establishment, which opened its doors in 2016 and recently joined the prestigious Relais & Châteaux collection.
The Domaine can be found in the picturesque village of Montenach, close to France’s border with Germany and Luxembourg. Luxembourg City is only a 30-minute drive away, while the historic French city of Metz is less than an hour’s drive from the hotel.
The hotel offers 28 sumptuous rooms and suites, and is home to a Gemology spa complete with heated sensory swimming pool, Finnish shower, ice fountain and Balinese beds. Among the five treatment rooms, there are two doubles, for those wanting to enjoy their relaxing treatments alongside a partner.
In addition to its beautiful surroundings and superb spa, Domaine de la Klauss is hugely popular as a gourmet weekend destination thanks to its excellent dining options.
Guests have two restaurants to choose from; Le “K” and L’Auberge de la Klauss. The latter had already been delighting diners for many years before the opening of the Domaine. “The Auberge has been a popular foodie hotspot for over 50 years,” explains Mrs Wieseler-Henry. “They specialise in traditional cuisine, whereas Le “K” is more of a gastronomic experience, and has already been awarded a Michelin Plate.”
New at the hotel for summer 2019 is a stunning outdoor swimming pool and a much larger outdoor terrace area. In the sunny days ahead, this will undoubtedly be a welcome addition, although there is plenty to entice visitors to Le Domaine de la Klauss whatever the forecast.
From exploring the surrounding nature on one of the hotel’s electric bikes or sunbathing by the pool in warm weather, to relaxing with a treatment in the spa or enjoying a cosy drink by the fireplace in the winter, Le Domaine is perfect for all seasons.
As well as being a popular choice with couples, the hotel is a sought-after destination for professional and private events such as seminars, meetings, product launches and press conferences. And because the Domaine is a boutique hotel, you’ll always have that feeling of exclusivity.
