Le Barn for le weekend, anyone? The concept at the rear of the resort is to set urbanites “immediately in touch with the shifting seasons, the outdoor, and the area wildlife.” Located in the Île-de-France forest of Rambouillet, 30 minutes by educate from Paris, the lodge is set on a 500-acre estate that’s house to an elite equestrian middle. Equally are owned by Franco-American businessman and horse-lover William Kriegel who teamed up with hotelier Edouard Daehn and Studio Be-Poles to remodel the barns into down-house guest quarters of the most glamorous sort. In addition to horseback riding, there is biking, mountaineering, fishing, mushrooming, a restaurant set in a greenhouse, and a very stately spa. Appear see.
