It may come as quite a surprise to find a French-style chateau in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains in California. The fairy-tale retreat of Château du Sureau lies just 25 kilometres from the natural wonders of Yosemite National Park.

After a day exploring the park, known for its black bear, red fox and cougars, you can relax within the three-hectare castle enveloped in tranquil gardens dotted with fountains and swimming pool.

This Relais & Châteaux property features 10 well-appointed guest rooms which come under the soothing names of chamomile, lavender, and sweet geranium – each an oasis of calm. You will find beamed ceilings and inviting four-poster beds.

You can also stay in the stately two-bedroom Villa du Sureau which lies behind a private-gated entrance. The Parisian-style manor retreat is adorned with fine furnishings, artworks, and exquisite touches.

Dine out at the award-winning restaurant, The Elderberry House, showcasing ingredients from local farms that harvest seasonal ingredients exclusively for the culinary team. Enjoy classic cocktails in the stone-clad walls of the cosy cellar bar. After a day trekking the Sierra Nevada mountains with the family relax in the soothing Spa du Sureau which offers the aptly named Hiker’s Repose Massage.
