Just 40 minutes north of Atlanta in the Georgia foothills, Chateau Elan is a world unto itself. My husband and I spent a weekend there recently when we needed some time away. Located on 3,500 acres, this is a regal resort. The Inn is designed to look a 16th century style French Chateau and the staff all treated us as though we were royalty. There are tours and tastings of the working, commercial winery. We found the tour very interesting. While my husband played some golf Saturday afternoon, I enjoyed a Hot Stone Massage at the spa. On Saturday night, we ate dinner at Le Clos. This is a French 5-course dining experience which took us nearly three hours and is something I won't soon, if ever, forget! The entire weekend was a regally relaxing experience.
