Hotel l'Edgar

This small hotel (formerly the Hotel Bonjour) is part of a mini-complex which includes the Bar Edgar, where you have your breakfast and a gîte (sleeps 15) available for weekly rental. Originally a 19th century inn it was converted with passion a few years back into a small, practical hotel by Dominique and Jean-Marie Raguin who, 30-odd years ago, got married in this very place. The village is steeped in history and down the road is the Château de Germigney where you may want to splash out on dinner (see 'Places to Eat') or the less expensive, associated bistrot. The nine rooms are all different, modern and, in the main, practical, but best to ask for a larger room if you like a good bathroom. The restaurant offers a straighforward and good value menu and wine list with a focus on the local specialities. Breakfast is taken in front of the open fire in winter.

Useful information: Rooms: €75-€95, breakfast: €8.50-€13.50 (Jurassien breakfast!). Free Wi-Fi. Menus: €12 (Lunch), €17-€31. Restaurant closed Monday and Tuesday October - April inclusive; rest of year open daily.
