Château du Sureau holds a variety of holiday events for its guests year round, throwing at least one special happening each month.
In July, for example, this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel hosts a special Bastille Day celebration accompanied by a limited-invitation dinner at its restaurant, Erna’s Elderberry House. Every August since 1984, the restaurant has honored its owner and founder, Erna Kubin-Clanin, with a food-, song- and wine-filled tribute to her home country, Austria. Rounding out the summer on September 25, the Château celebrates its anniversary with festivities that include a champagne reception in the grand salon and a gala dinner at Erna’s Elderberry House, which features fine wine and live performers singing traditional French chansons.
In December, this luxury hotel is stunningly arrayed for Christmas in Continental style. If you’re spending Christmas morning here, you’ll be encouraged to place your gifts under the tree in the grand salon and open them alongside your fellow guests. The hotel also arranges for a children’s choir to perform, which adds an extra measure of holiday cheer to the already-festive surroundings.
