It’s impossible to describe a standard room at Château du Sureau, because each set of luxurious quarters is unique. However, they do share a few common threads. The entire Château is furbished in the French Empire style, with impeccably restored 19th-century antique furniture in every chamber. Each of the rooms is named after one of the ingredients in the classic French herb mélange Herbes de Provence — mint, rosemary and thyme rooms are all available for booking. The rooms each have their own color scheme, decorative style and layout, although they all remain perfectly within the realm of early-to-mid 19th-century French interior décor, with floral fabrics, ornately carved furniture and exposed wood ceiling beams.
All but one of the rooms have functional wood-burning fireplaces, a large queen- or (more typically) king-size bedroom set, and a lavish bath accented with marble or limestone. Staying at the Five-Star hotel is like living on a grand scale, with trappings so rich that even a Bonaparte would approve.
