At the heart of the Margeride region, a country of lakes and lofty plateaux, in a marvellous natural setting, discover a delightful 19th century dwelling, formerly owned by a local political dignitary. Set in 12 hectares of grounds, with hundred-year old sequoia trees and a heated swimming pool, the hotel welcomes guests to delightfully appealing bedrooms, each bearing a name inspired by the region - a personality, a magical, dreamllike, marvellous atmosphere or a tasty Autumnal treat. Our restaurant specializes in refined dishes made with tasty regional produce.
A fairy tale castle surrounded by a sumptuous park with centenary sequoias, water ways and a pigeon loft: you are surrounded by romanticism. Yet it is not just about this, as the resolutely contemporary décor and design bring a highly glamourous touch to the beautiful restaurant dining room, where the well-spaced tables encourage a pleasant intimacy. In the same vein, the chef’s food is an ode to this region of Gévaudan, which is so well preserved. Three set menus allow you to discover and appreciate, in a balanced way, this inventive range around wonderful produce, which gives woodland mushroom ravioli, snaked prawns and morel emulsion an extraordinary dimension, with perfect, effective flavours which aren’t excessive. The service is appropriate for the venue and the wine list lets you discover, beyond some prestigious labels, excellent bottles from Languedoc-Roussillon, offered at very reasonable prices.
