Fodor's Review

Set on seven acres of picture-perfect parkland, this unique hotel occupies three charming 19th-century buildings: the picturesque stables, with "Gothic" brick trim, high beamed ceilings, and the delightful Unicorn Suite; the Villa Florentine (once home to famed poet Paul Éluard) whose Chambre Marquise has no less than seven windows overlooking the park and stream; and the elegant Castel Napoléon III, with six separate guest rooms featuring period antiques and oriental

rugs. An indoor pool, whirlpool, and sauna are lovely embellishments, but the icing on this cake is the restaurant (closed Monday, no dinner Sunday). It took chef Olivier Da Silva just 18 months to earn his first Michelin star, providing the area with a much-needed gastronomic destination. Exceptional dishes feature local products whenever possible, such as monkfish medallions in a hazelnut crust with skewered oysters or Normandy lobster raviolis with hazelnuts and tarragon.
