Museum or Hotel? France's L'Hermitage Gantois, built in 1462, is both. Guests can stay in rooms that were formerly nuns' cells, tour the old chapel, and take a guided tour to admire the art and architecture of the building.

More than 600 years on, L’Hermitage Gantois has been sympathetically transformed into a boutique hotel where the ancient and the modern – steel and glass alongside a 17th-century staircase and chapel, Renaissance-era tapestries sharing wall space with pop art – creatively coexist. Dining options range from five-course tasting-menu degustations at Restaurant de l’Hermitage to brasserie-style local specialties, such as carbonnade, at L’Estaminet Gantois.
