Perched in the Monts du Lyonnais, in the heart of the Rhône, André Chouvin’s upscale lodging has been thought of as a warm and refined parenthesis.
Each of the five rooms is a tribute to an iconic chef who has marked his career and made him the master restaurateur he is today.
In front of the Tilia, as a wink, wooden panels indicate the distance that separates the charming hotel from the great chefs who inspired André Chouvin: Paul Bocuse, Michel Lorain, Guy Lassausaie, etc.
In the bedrooms, the furniture is designed in clean lines. Sobriety and simplicity are the watchwords. The emphasis is on the essentials: comfort above all, between premium bedding and modern and bright bathrooms.
Here and there, touches of bright colors settle on the immaculate walls. The large windows, overlooking the church, the ancient lime tree or the castle, let the beautiful light of the Rhone enter everywhere. Upstairs, the original elements, frame and wooden beams, are sublimated.
The corridors of the hotel are decorated with dreamlike and colorful works by Tracey Chouvin, the chef’s wife.
In the morning, it’s time for greed. Breakfast is a buffet complemented by a choice of à la carte delights. As in the gourmet restaurant, local products are in the spotlight: yogurts, sausages or pastries come from farmers and producers in the neighborhood.
