A one-night stay turned into four!
Posted Sep 28, 2016
With wonderful food, a warm welcome from the owner-chef and super service from his wife, not to mention a very comfortable room looking out over the mountains, what was there not to like? The weather cooperated and we stayed on, looking forward to returning every evening to a great meal. Chef took care to vary our choices and make suggestions so that we would appreciate new dishes every evening. An inventive amuse-bouche started off every dinner. The local fish was superb and clearly a menu favourite. But tender and perfectly cooked lamb was also real treat. We loved the pepper sorbet garnishing a tomato and mozzarella appetizer--and of course, the tomato was as luscious as it could be. This is a restaurant where salt and pepper are not on the table. They are not necessary since every dish is perfectly seasoned to delight. We ate locally and very well and appreciated the fine service. Be prepared to savour and enjoy the rhythm of the dining-room as each guest is taken in turn. After opening up our bedroom shutters every morning following a peaceful sleep, it was off to breakfast. We enjoyed the most flowery-tasting local honey, light and flaky viennoiserie and cafe au lait, along with freshly squeezed orange juice and yogurt. This small inn carries on a tradition started by earlier family in what was the ancestral farm home. Today it has a thoroughly modern dining-room to complement its rooms. It is well-situated to visit gorgeous alpine countryside.
