Lovely rooms, in both contemporary and classic styles, and remarkable cuisine that’s a welcome change from genteel, stuffy gastronomy: here there are only fresh regional products and an élan marked by refreshing creativity. The cuisine is playful, precise, vigorous, colorful….and there’s plenty of it. If you go, you’ll notice that the attention to detail extends even to the bread. It comes from the Boulangerie Darrigues. While not the prettiest bakery in the village, it’s the best, especially the gateau basque, excellent bread, brioches with raisins and nuts. An impressive wine list and, overall, throughout the hotel a scrupulousness that ensures everything is just right.
