Travel Beaujolais: Accommodation/Restaurant

Discussion in 'UK Wine Forum' started by Mark Priestley, Jul 24, 2020.

  1. Anyone here got any recommendations of places to stay and dine in Beaujolais? Planning a single night stop in the area before heading onto Collioure/Banyuls area for a holiday. Many thanks
  2. If you don't have to stay exactly in Beaujolais I can recommend a small family-run auberge just north of Mâcon, close to Montbellet. Its called La Marande, has 5/6 bedrooms and a Michelin starred restaurant and a very decent list of local wines (as well as beyond). We've stayed there several times on our way to Provence and would have been there again this year if it wasn't for the dreaded virus.

  3. The choice of hotels is improving in our region and it really depends on what you are looking for. Les Maritonnes (Romanèche-Thorins) is comfortable and has a decent ‘Georges Blanc’ restaurant called Rouge et Blanc, overseen by Ludovic Hocdé. Romane Barth’s Auberge de Clochemerle (Vaux-en-Beaujolais) has ten rooms and an exquisite, modern restaurant, with an outstanding wine list, created by his wife, Délphine. For inventive and precise regional cooking, Ghislain Varillon’s l’Ecume Gourmand, in Cercié, is really worth the detour and has an excellent, well-priced wine list. It has no accommodation but there are plenty of excellent B and B’s nearby. There is a surprisingly decent collection of middle-range hotels scattered around the region but all depends on the level of cuisine that is required.
  4. Le coq et le rose in Julienas was very good back in 2012. Not uber fancy but exceptionally well run & fine food, plus a good list of local wines. We stayed at Jean Rijckaert's chambre d'hote but it looks like they've stopped the accomodation now.
