Get closer to the land at this characterful hideaway in the Rambouillet forest, just 45 minutes from Paris. Aside from the timber-filled accommodations, which brim with Barbour fabrics and bespoke murals, Le Barn entices through its considerable wellness and dining provisions. The on-site chef dishes out appetising fare crafted from the fruits of the vegetable gardens, grown according to the season. Guests also get a personal osteopath and masseur for treatment at the wellbeing centre, housed in a former mill, and the spot for a dip in the hot tub. A strong list of activities – horse-riding, golfing, cycling – completes the package.
