Vonnas (Burgundy, France)
Vonnas, best known as the home to Georges Blanc and his ‘village gourmand’ is a must-visit for Destination Dining lovers. If the temptations of being in the centre of town are too much for you, and you’re looking for a more subdued and nature-filled experience, head to Hôtel du Bois Blanc, located inside the Château D’Epeyssolles, outside the main village of Vonnas.
Dining options in Vonnas are plentiful, with Georges Blanc and Bresse chicken, the clear stars of the show. Head into town to Blanc’s three-star Michelin Restaurant, for a fully decadent dining experience, or try his more casual l’Ancienne Auberge which is a temple to traditional french cooking. On site at the Hotel du Bois Blanc, enjoy al fresco dining overlooking the chateaux park.
With a seasonal outdoor pool and large terrace, the hotel offers a serene and peaceful escape for those looking to rejuvenate, or a base for cycling and horse riding for those who are feeling more adventurous. Retire to the well-equipped rooms for a peaceful sleep in four star comfort.
