Chien Bleu

Summer Lodge. Intimate and personal, tranquil and charming, warm and inviting, this five-star Relais & Châteaux property set in the heart of Dorset is larger than the sum of its parts. Yes, there is an indoor heated pool and spa. Yes, there are tennis courts and croquet fields, manicured gardens with hammocks and ponds next to which tea can be enjoyed. There is even world-renowned dining. Yet, what sets the Summer Lodge apart from those with similar amenities is the execution – service like none other, thoughtful touches at every turn and great reflection on how best to secure guests’ complete relaxation, all regardless of whether the guest is two-legged or four.
