In beautifully proportioned 18th-century weathered-wood farmhouses on the outskirts of town, this is the quintessential French-Swiss country inn. Guest rooms mix aged pine planking, painted furniture, and antiques, and under the old low-beam ceilings the floors creak agreeably. Up-to-date amenities, immaculate appointments, and fresh flowers—inside and out—keep standards well above rustic. The restaurant is even more civilized, and on winter nights there's a firelit
stone cellar bar with low-key jazz.
