December 2006 was our fourth winter holiday at La Cote and it was, as usual, incredible. The first year we were stranded on Christmas Eve (which is also my husband's birthday, and the reason for our visit) and so the hotel kindly put us up in a beautiful room at the top of a winding stair with an unparalleled view of the River Yonne. The food is surprising, imaginative and consistently excellent, and Jean-Michel and his staff make it feel like a second home. We're looking forward to returning this year, and for as many years as we are able to make the trip.
The surrounding town is great for shutterbugs, with some of the structures of the old walled portion of the village dating back to the 12th century. Truly something special and highly recommended.
