Set in an old maison de maitre (mansion) with a pretty courtyard entered through large wrought iron gates, the interior of this restaurant is a surprising jewel. The restaurant and foyer are decorated with wall paintings of cherubs on pink fluffy clouds; chairs are delicate white and gold – the scene restful and unworldly. The food however is not ephemeral – a hearty fish soup followed by a rack of lamb with a rich sauce and vegetables followed by white chocolate mousse left me ready for a siesta in the courtyard rather than visiting more vineyards! There are also a few luxurious rooms, but usually only available in summer months.
