L'Espérance

Vézelay, Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, 89450, France

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

Accommodations, which vary in price, form a delightful trinity: you can choose between pleasant rooms overlooking the garden; ones in the annex, the Pré des Marguerites; and full suites in a renovated mill, done up in a cozy style Anglais. Chef Marc Meneau heads one of the greatest kitchens in Burgundy, serving Breton lobster cooked in a salt crust, veal roasted with anchovies, and other creations next to a stream and in a large, statue-filled garden. Note that the restaurant (reservations essential) is closed Tuesday and there's no lunch Monday or Wednesday.
