The Dutch town of Maastricht has been hailed as both an historical delight (cobble stone streets framed by 17th century houses) and-- on the other side of the Maas River-- an "urban planner's dream mix of contemporary buildings."
Just a ten minute drive outside of this charming European city, the luxurious Chateau St. Gerlach
is a destination in and of itself. Sprawling over a number of period buildings (including a 13th century chateau, farmhouse, convent, and Baroque church), the hotel is home to the fine, Michelin-starred restaurant of the same name. Nestled on a beautiful country estate with a wildlife reserve, Chateau St. Gerlach showcases the best of the Valkenburg countryside-- the frontier region that is one of the most popular holiday resorts in Holland. Dive into some extraordinary haute cuisine with a special "Culinary Maastricht" package
. This fabulous offer include two nights in a Deluxe Room, a welcome glass of champagne on arrival, daily breakfast buffet in the Winter Garden, free Marco Polo guide of Maastricht, and free use of the swimming pool, Turkish bath, and sauna. Enjoy a four-course dinner
at Michelin star restaurant St. Gerlach and then on your second night, indulge in a five-course dinner at Michelin star restaurant Chateau Neercanne. Rates start from just EUR 259
; available until December 31, 2007.
