This very nice hotel has a good atmosphere, a very nice park, quiet environment, close to the A7 and is just south of Lyon. But more important: it's not only the nice rooms! This hotel has a more then excellent restaurant. Enjoy the food, enjoy the atmosphere and I assure you that you will be back!

Where to begin? Beautiful hotel set in a lovely, tree-bordered garden (great place for dogs). The rooms are delightful, clean and spacious. The staff is friendly and courteous and nearly all speak English. The gourmet restaurant is a treat; it's smart, but not as formal as one would think. The food is memorable, but real quality comes at a price.... More

We stayed here 2 years ago, in the summer, and were a bit disappointed with the service and found our room unmemorable. This trip, although the rooms were the same, being on the first floor was better than ground floor ( a bit dank and dark) and the decoration was lighter. The rooms are actually pretty large ( in the... More

We stayed at this hotel on our way down to the South of France. The food in the "Restaurant Gastronomic" was outstanding! The menu did not offer a fixed price for two courses of a starter and main course but a main course and dessert at a fixed price. We had the former and were only charged the two courses.... More

We stayed with a family of four in one of the 2* rooms in the main building of the domaine. Luckily, it was a not too warm day, since these rooms have no aircon. It was still quite warm in the room. The room was spacious and the bed was fine, however the room was a bit outdated. It was... More

We were on our way from the South of France after a holiday in the sun.We chose this place for its location and because the restaurant had a Michelun star. The weather was very hot. On arrival we were taken upstairs in the main building to our room. It was unbearably hot.The sun had been shining on our window all... More

We spent a long weekend in this very nice hotel. The restaurant is an absolute must-go and the hotel overall was a great experience. Nice park/garden and terrace, charming rooms and highly professional and resourceful staff.

Set amidst a large wooded garden, this charming hotel features pristene classic French cooking, well-appointed service and comfortable rooms. The more casual 'le cottage' up the hill from the main restaurant has a more modern ambience.

As we were shown past the little pond with the swan, we realized we had been here years ago. The rooms in the annex are very good. The entire place has been tastefully renovated and our room was large and comfortable. The grounds are lovely. The dining room tables are placed in a very strange position, having all "couples" tables... More

We stayed just one night and were impressed by the main house, the breakfast and the grounds. The annex where we stayed lacked charm. And there was a wedding that seemed to dominate the focus of the staff. It took way too long to get a couple of glasses of wine. They did advise us of the wedding in advance.... More
