La Lucarne aux Chouettes, Burgundy, France
La Lucarne aux Chouettes on the banks of the river at Villeneuve-sur-Yonne, just off the N6 (now, D 606) was made famous by its founder Leslie Caron the actress. In February 2013 this boutique hotel and restaurant was purchased by chef Jérome Fertel, a local from the Sens area. There are four guest rooms, decorated with great attention to detail, a tearoom and a wine bar.

La Lucarne aux Chouette Boutique Hotel, Burgundy, FranceThe building itself is charming, like its name which loosely translated is the ‘Owls’ Nest’. Four 17th-century boat warehouses just below the bridge in the centre of Villeneuve-sur-Yonne were turned into this small hotel and restaurant. These old buildings have been cleverly melded together, mixing the old with the new. The dining room has a huge vaulted ceiling with oak beams, stone walls and an original tiled floor, with floor-to-ceiling windows so that diners can enjoy the river view. The bedrooms are decorated in a classic French style with antiques and drapes.

Nearby visit the vineyards and châteaux, take trips on the river and canal, and savour this delightful location. The auberge is an easy drive from Paris for lunch or for a weekend break.

Prices for the menu from 17euros Tuesday to Friday for lunch. Dinner from 30 – 48 euros. The restaurant is closed Sunday dinner and Monday all day.
The hotel is open 7 days a week, rooms, 59 euros for the Blue Room, 99 euros for the larger rooms.
