Fodor's Expert Review Le Sauvage

12 Planche-Supérieure, Fribourg, Fribourg, 1700, Switzerland

A cloister in the 17th century and an inn during the cattle-market days of the 18th and 19th centuries, this sophisticated auberge now has a striking blend of minimalist furnishings and medieval details. In the guest rooms, whitewashed stone walls hide TVs, and sleek bathrooms include elegant vanities. The cozy restaurant (closed Sunday evening, Monday and Tuesday) serves gourmet seasonal cuisine under an original vaulted ceiling.

PROS

  • enchantingly steeped in medieval history
  • central location
  • fine-dining restaurant serves fresh, inventive cuisine

CONS

  • rooms are under renovation one at a time
  • typically neutral Swiss color scheme
  • walls may feature uninspiring paintings
