Since the 1950s, when it attracted starlets and millionaires, Auberge du Père-Bise has radiated style and charm. A chalet built in 1901, it’s one of France’s most acclaimed—and expensive—restaurants. In fair weather, you can dine under a vine-covered pergola and enjoy the view of mountains and the lake. The kitchen, helmed by chef Jean Sulpice, excels at dishes such as roe deer with beetroot, Char Lake fish, and celeriac risotto. Reservations required.
The inn also offers 23 guest rooms. Rates are 229€ to 429€ for a double and start at 779€ for a suite. Reserve at least two months in advance, especially in summer.
