La Ferme aux Grives Review

With four superb suites for the lucky first-comers, Michel Guérard's delightfully re-created old coaching inn, set at one end of their Prés d'Eugénie fiefdom, is meant to be a more rustic alternative to their main flagship—here, Grandmother's cooking is given a nouvelle spin, and nearly everything is authentique: even the suckling pig turns on a spit in the fireplace. Nature's bounty and la cuisine du terroir are the central themes. Inside, your eyes feast on the decor, too: a banquet table is laid out with vegetables and breads, darkened beams cast romantic shadows, and hunting paintings cover the walls.
