Hostellerie du Vieux Pérouges Review
If you want a sense of stepping back into medieval France, tarry a while at "The Old Man of Pérouges," a gorgeous complex of four ancient stone residences set around an extraordinary corbelled, 14th-century timber-frame house that's now home to the inn's famous restaurant—regional delights are served up on pewter plates by waitresses in folk costumes, recipes handed down from the days of Charles VII inspire the cook, and everybody partakes of the famous galette pérugienne à la crème (the "pancake of Pérouges") dessert. The historic vibe lingers in your guest room, thanks to time-burnished antiques, gigantic stone hearths, and glossy wood floors and tables. Rooms in the geranium-decked 15th-century Au St-Georges et Manoir manor are more spacious than—but also nearly twice the cost of—those in Le Pavillon (aka "L'Annexe") and have marble bathrooms and period furniture (one or two rooms even have their own garden). At the lower end of the scale, however, the rooms are fairly simple. Breakfast is extra.
