Chef Marc Meneau heads one of the greatest kitchens in Burgundy, serving a casserole of Bresse pigeon and Breton lobster, scallops with a sea urchin-based sauce, and other creations next to a stream and in a large, statue-filled garden. His luckiest diners lodge onsite in contemporary guest quarters. 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. Note that the restaurant (reservations essential) is closed Tuesday and there's no lunch Monday or Wednesday.
