We were making a "speed run" from Barcelona to western Germany, and Lyon was a good half-way stop. We didn't have time to visit the city this time, so we thought this location (out from the city on a road at 2 o'clock on a clock face) would be perfect for an early departure for Germany. Made the reservation from a public phone just inside the French border. It was a rainy drive, and we were so glad to have a reservation waiting that we did not expect too much. But we were so pleasantly surprised! The inn is charming; the owner personable yet unobtrusive, the room (the only one left) was wonderful...clean and comfortable. The owner spoke English with my husband, or French if we desired. We had had a big lunch, and were looking not to drive too far for a simple supper. The hotel prepared a wonderful cold plate, plus a leek tart and an omelette. A pichet of red wine topped it all off...and then we added the chocolate lava cake, which was extraordinary. A fire in the fireplace was the perfect rainy-night touch. Everything was spotless. The bathtub was a luxury, as were the provided bathrobes. Breakfast was wonderful, and we will surely return to see the gardens. We couldn't see anything in the dark and rain, and so this gives us an excuse to return!
