Overnight hotel & dinner in the Rhone valley, somewhere between Vienne and Tain-l’Hermitage/ Touron-sur-Rhone?

We stayed and ate at Domaine de Clairfontaine last July. It was lovely. The people who run it are charming and could not be nicer. The food was quite good and it made a nice stopover on our way north. We stopped there after M. Bouissou at Hotel Faurie decided to take a break and we had to find something quickly. I'd have to check my notes to see what we ate. It wasn't show stopping but it we were quite satisfied and would return.

Faurie closes for year

FYI - we thought we'd look into Francois Gagnaire as another option but his restaurant is closed until July 4.

We are in the same boat but our reservation wasn't until July. We were so disappointed to get the email. Chateau de Rochessauve (http://www.chateau-de-rochessauve.com) was recommended to us. I can't vouch for it but it might be worth a look.

Where to eat along with the Ardèche and the Jura? Burgundy? Savoie?

I actuallly have a question for you rather than a response. Have you been successful in making a reservation at the Hotel Faurie? I haven't gotten a response to my email requesting a reservation. Their answering machine says they won't open until April so I don't know if that means they'll respond then or not. I'd hate for them to be fully booked. Thanks for you help.

I will certainly report back. Thanks for the info on how to find it. Now to secure the reservation- I've emailed but haven't heard back yet.

Your review makes it clear- Faurie it is, if we can get a reservation. Thanks for the caillette link. We won't plan lunch after that breakfast. By the way, I love reading your reviews. They make me feel like I'm there even when I'm sitting at my desk at work.

Thanks so much for your helpful reply. We are choosing our stop based on the restaurant and that doesn't sound worth the detour. Any other suggestions would be welcomed.

We will be traveling from Marseille to Paris in June and will stop for one night on the way. We are thinking of eating at Francois Gagnaire in Le Pu-en Velay. Has anyone been? Another choice would be the Hotel Faurie in Saint Agreve which seems to get universally good reviews. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
