Small independent luxury hotel La Maison d’Ulysse has put together a special babymoon package for parents-to-be hoping to enjoy a self-indulgent break before the little one arrives. Whether it’s a walking tour around the idyllic village of Baron, a pampering spa treatment or a delectable feast at the hotel’s intimate restaurant, La Maison d’Ulysee offers the ideal pre-baby getaway.
Boasting stunning natural environs and rich local history, La Maison d’Ulysee offers the perfect setting to relax and unwind before entering or re-entering parenthood. Under the expert guidance of Gauthier Vandendriessche, one half of the hotel’s founders, La Maison d’Ulysse has recently launched Gauthier’s Guides providing the best tips on where to walk, jog, and cycle in the local area.
Designed to showcase the very best of the local surroundings, Gauthier’s Guides include a walking tour specifically tailored for babymooners. Comprised of a gentle stroll around the local village of Baron and its peaceful surroundings, mums and dads-to-be can take in the magnificent views as they pass the ruins of a feudal castle perched on a hilltop. The tour will also take them to the village’s bell tower and protestant church, before ending with a relaxing walk across the beautiful Duché d’Uzès vineyard.
For those who wish to treat themselves to an extra level of pampering before the baby arrives, La Maison d’Ulysse offers a range of spa treatments suitable for mothers-to-be. With pregnancy known to put a lot of strain on the body, a soothing massage or relaxing body wrap is the key to releasing tension and revitalising both body and mind. Dads-to-be can also prepare themselves for their little arrival by opting for a relaxing massage or taking a dip in the hotel’s own Turkish bath.
Expectant parents can indulge in two specially curated babymoon menus, featuring ingredients grown in the hotel’s own gardens or sourced locally from the nearby market in the town of Uzès. The menus have been designed by the hotel’s two recently appointed chefs, Valérie Lucas and Daniel Jarrín Molin, who bring with them a wealth of culinary expertise. Offering an array of gastronomic delights to amuse every palate, dishes include free-range chicken with ‘petits pois à la française’ and slow-cooked lamb shoulder with grilled aubergine.
