The Grand Epicurean Experience at Chateau du Sureau with a Private Plane Tour of Yosemite

The Grand Epicurean Villa Experience offered at Château du Sureau, a luxurious nine-acre country house resort tucked away among the green foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, is the ultimate way to enjoy the Relais and Chateaux property and its majestic neighbor, the majestic Yosemite National Park. From champagne and caviar tastings, to taking in the beauty of Yosemite on foot and from above, this lavish experience can now be reserved during the popular summer season.

The Experience includes:

  • Three nights in Villa du Sureau
  • Breakfast daily on the Villa’s private balcony
  • Caviar and champagne tasting
  • Scenic Cessna plane tour of Yosemite (for two)
  • Private guided hiking tour of Yosemite (for two)
  • Two 90-minute treatments in Spa du Sureau
  • Private dinner on the Villa’s balcony
  • Four-course dinner at Elderberry House

Hidden behind a private-gated entrance is the property’s most exclusive accommodation, the stately Villa du Sureau. This 2,000 square-foot Parisian-style Manor retreat is adorned with fine antique furnishings, specialty art, and charming design details. Featuring a sitting salon and library, two bedrooms with expansive marble baths, and a petite kitchen alcove, the spacious villa is reflective of a private residence. Outside, guests will discover a personal oasis of relaxation complete with a palatial balcony and Roman Spa. Personal butler services are also available.

Nestled across nine-sprawling acres of rolling foothills at the gateway to Yosemite National Park, Château du Sureau blends the charm and beauty of France’s Provencal region with central California’s verdant landscape. This luxurious hideaway features 10 elegantly appointed guestrooms inspired by the South of France in addition to the private Villa du Sureau. The Elderberry House Restaurant offers an inventive menu showcasing the finest local, seasonal, and organic ingredients sourced locally, and is complemented by a premier wine list.  A full-service spa, outdoor pool, and expansive gardens and grounds provide moments of wellness and tranquility. Beyond the estate’s gates, an adventure travelers’ paradise awaits, from Yosemite National Park just 16 miles away to scenic hiking, biking and fishing excursions. Château du Sureau is a member of Relais & Châteaux and a AAA Five Diamond hotel.
