On the main square at the bottom of the hill, this three-star hotel in a former coaching inn is our favorite in Vézelay. The whole place has undergone renovation in recent years, completed in 2017. Rooms are calm and spacious with traditional wooden furniture; some overlook the village, while others have a view of the Morvan countryside. The latest addition is a gourmet restaurant, L’Éternel, where creative Burgundian/French dishes are beautifully presented (fixed-price menus 28€–48€). The light and airy bar, with its summer terrace, is the perfect spot to sample the local wines.
