It’s all change for one of France’s leading chefs, Michel Troisgros. Following the recent success of his foray into the Roannaise countryside with La Colline du Colombier featuring his cadoles (designer cabins), Troigros has now moved his flagship restaurant and hotel to a countryside estate in Ouche. Only his café-épicerie Le Central remains in his native Roanne. The new Maison Troigros is housed in a stone farmhouse that has been cleverly converted with the addition of a wall-to-wall glass dining room that plays with the illusion of outdoor dining. Thankfully one thing never changes: Troisgros’ culinary genius. Taste exceptional flavors such as caramelized rack of lamb or pineapple-infused mackerel before retiring to one of the luxurious contemporary bedrooms (from 300€). It’s the perfect place for a weekend getaway.
