Le Refuge des Gourmets


Combining the classical with the new, chef Jean-Marie Chanove, and his son Hubert Chanove, offer you an elegant but not over-elaborate cuisine in which all the flavour of seasonal produce and careful selection is revealed. 1 star in the 2018 Michelin guide.

With their team of professionals at their sides and Jean-Marie in the kitchen and Florence at front of house you will receive the best of welcomes. Le Refuge des Gourmets offers a perfect break for refined dishes in a cosy atmosphere. A pretty terrace is open for lunch and dinner on fine days!
