What a great place. We just happened upon this town after driving from Lake Como that day. We got really lucky with both the hotel and the dinner we had at Duo Restaurant and Bar.
The hotel is quite newly remodeled and very comfortable. The lighting is a little bright, but we grabbed a lamp from the bedroom and put it in the living room during our stay. The room has a full kitchen which we did not get to use, but it appeared to be chef ready.
The shower was especially nice and we enjoyed the lavender soap that was provided. We extended our stay to 2 night because we liked the place so much and the surrounding ruins are quite interesting to hike around. We had one of our dining highlights in Briancon at Duo Restaurant. Thomas and Richard (the duo in Duo) have created a charming culinary delight in the French Alpes. It was slow both nights we went, and we had lots of time to take with Thomas who was one of the most gracious restaurant owners I have ever met. The food and the wine and the ambiance were simply fantastic. And if you have a little extra time before or after dinner, go downstairs and have a drink with Sylvain at Duo Bar. He is a sweetheart of a guy. He let me use his computer to check my email two nights in a row! He plays great music and the atmosphere is very cool.
