Le Vieux Manoir au Lac Review

Truly worthy of Relais & Châteaux status, this stately, turreted mansion sits in a manicured park on Lac de Morat. Most of the guest rooms have individual "themes" by various artists and designers—try the Glass Diamond, a stately, all-glass 'treehouse' room nestled high in the branches of centuries-old trees. The lakefront location provides a range of water sports and outdoor activities, and the three restaurants offer seasonal sampling menus with, respectively, a Mediterranean, French Continental, and regional Swiss bent. Options might include chateaubriand with spring onions and béarnaise sauce or a panfried Norwegian lobster served with fennel and cardamom.
