FRANCE
GEORGE BLANC
 
This charming, rustic-style inn set in the beautiful floral village of Vonnas, in the heart of the Burgundy wine country, 30 miles North of Lyon, is surrounded by a lovely river filled with water lilies and swans, gentle bubbling waterfalls, and colorful flowers. The warm, homey interior is a combination of rustic country-French décor, elegant antiques and Flemish Tapestries. 27 comfortable rooms, suites and apartments are located in the inn, ten rooms and apartments in an adjoining annex and ten less expensive accommodations about a block away. An outdoor heated pool, a fitness room and spa are on premises, as well as a heliport for guests who fly in for the day to sample this extraordinary restaurant and inn.
 
George Blanc is one of the most famous chefs in the world, the proud recipient of three stars from the Michelin Guide, four toques from Gault et Millau and dozens of other honors. Lunch and dinners served in the main dining rooms are possibly the finest meals available anywhere in the world. The service is friendly and impeccable, the china, crystal and silver the finest, the ingredients the freshest (many grown on property), the presentation imaginative, the wine list overwhelming and the cuisine the very best. This is truly an epicurean’s dream. Guests who cannot consume two of these ultra-gourmet meals in one day, can opt to have an equally excellent experience at the hotel’s quaint bistro with its charming outdoor terrace serving Bressan-style cuisine designed to emulate the restaurants of George Blanc’s ancestors which were located in this town since the early 1900s.
 
Strong Points: Charming accommodations with an elegant country-French décor where guests can enjoy the very best all-around dining experience in France and possibly the world.
