This sturdy mansion, which began life as a coach house in the 17th century, is now a prim hotel; its small, white-wall bedrooms are adorned with gilt-framed pictures and named after artists, including Cézanne (who stayed here in 1872) and Van Gogh (whose eponymous junior suite is the quaintest, if priciest, option). Corinne Boilleaut presides over the hotel, while her husband Joël is in charge of the restaurant. A noted chef, he expects diners to linger over his prix-fixe
weekday lunch menus (€54 for three courses, with coffee and a half bottle of wine thrown in); dinners featuring innovative dishes that raise gastronomic eyebrows are also served. Although the restaurant is closed Monday, Saturday lunch, and Sunday dinner, a scaled-down bistro service provides a more than adequate alternative, with scallops and jugged hare among the healthy choices.
