Fodor's Expert Review Le Logis des Grives
Rue René Vielle, Eugénie-les-Bains, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, 40320, France
With four superb suites for the lucky first-comers, the Guérards' 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. At the inn's restaurant, La Ferme aux Grives, 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.
- the rusticity is more relaxing than the full-on Guérard treatment
- finest country cooking in the land a few yards away
- isolated from village life
- only for those on an elite budget
