Burgeoning boutique luxury hotel brand, The Pavilions Hotels & Resorts, has announced the addition of Occitania’s exceptional Château De Fiac to its portfolio from 1 January 2024, taking its growing European footprint to six properties across four countries and further enhancing the brand’s immersive local offerings.
First opened last year in charming Tarn, just 24 miles from Toulouse-Blagnac International Airport, the 16-room and suite hotel is a serene haven that seamlessly blends the aristocratic and academic heritage of the estate, with the contemporary comforts and assiduous service desired by discerning travellers. Coupled with fine dining, world-class wellness experiences from REVĪVŌ and local immersions, Château De Fiac by The Pavilions Hotels & Resorts offers an idyllic retreat in which to experience the best of France’s Occitania region.
Across the château’s three floors, guests will find 10 rooms and six suites, each decorated in tones that match the natural surroundings; from deep greens and rich terracottas to crisp linen whites. Sophisticated, white-tiled bathrooms featuring free-standing roll-top baths are filled with natural light, creating an elegant, fresh feel. Neutral soft furnishings are complemented by elegant decorative accents, including French portraiture and gilded fan lights, subtly recalling the generations of French nobility that called this estate home as far back as the de Montforts in the 13th century. For a truly special retreat, the Rooftop Room Suite features a private terrace from which to take in bucolic views of the surrounding fields, trees and countryside.
Encapsulating France’s culture and approach to gourmet dining, the hotel’s Renaissance restaurant focuses on experiences that all the senses can enjoy, blending the location, moment and sumptuous dishes in one seamless dining offering. Culinary artistry brings to life the flavours, ingredients and wine of the region, indulging guests with an array of seasonal dishes.
