Only when you book with Chic
Relais Chalons d’Orange is an enchanting hideaway nestled in the Comino Valley, close to the National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise. This charming boutique hotel has just ten rooms, making it an intimate and peaceful retreat in the heart of an area of outstanding natural beauty. The Relais sits within 40,000 square metres of organic farmland and orchards, meaning there’s plenty of fresh, natural produce at the hotel’s sumptuous buffet breakfasts. Ideally situated for exploring the national park, or visiting some of the region’s most picturesque historic villages and towns, Relais Chalons d’Orange makes for a spellbinding estate in the heart of rural Italy.
To guarantee a peaceful and tranquil stay for all guests, this Chic Retreat is adult’s only.
It’s worth nothing that this property is closed during the winter season.
The hotel serves a delicious buffet breakfast, including home-baked cakes, freshly-squeezed fruit juices and homemade jams made with fruits from the hotel estate. Fore more substantial meals, there are numerous local eateries within driving distance.
Rooms are simply but elegantly styled, with plenty of natural light and colour. The décor makes use of local fabrics and natural materials, creating a cosily authentic atmosphere. Each room has a large private terrace with views of the Comino valley and surrounding orchards.
The beach-style swimming pool is the perfect place for lazy lounging while soaking up the stunning views of the surrounding valley. Sequester yourself in one of the garden’s free-standing hammocks and spend a relaxing afternoon with a good book. The hotel offers a number of activities for those that want to immerse themselves in Italian culture, from helping out with harvesting the 550 fruit trees, to cooking classes, truffle hunting and wine tasting. Those of a more active disposition can enjoy horseback tours of the estate, mountain biking, or even dancing lessons with award-winning teachers.
The hotel is situated near the National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise, an area of outstanding natural beauty known for its thick beech woods and mountain valleys, perfect for bracing hikes. There are a number of historic villages and towns in the surrounding hills. Arpino, the birthplace of Cicero, is known for its gorgeous peach-coloured medieval buildings and ancient ruins, and is just a short drive from the hotel.
