Good Hotel Guide Review

Michelin awards three stars to the brilliant cooking of the “warmly welcoming” owner/chef Gilles Goujon in the stylish restaurant-with-rooms which he runs with his wife, Marie-Christine. Set in this remote hamlet (“a cluster of stone houses”) south-west of Narbonne, it is reached by a “long but charming drive on small roads in parts winding and potholed” through the Corbières vineyards. There are rooms in the main house and less expensive ones in the ‘maison de chefs’ in the village, 300m away. The six-course set meal might include Tourte d’anguille, saoule de vin en matelotte fumée girolles et champignons en fine croute de pain cramat; rognon de veau roti entier dans sa graisse, puis tranché, oignon de Lézignan la Cèbe en croûte de sel, crème moutarde Wasabi. “Breakfast superb, too.” The bedrooms are also liked: “They are bo-bo (bohemian bourgeois), and very enjoyable: pink-washed walls, pictures of flowers, super bed, modern bathroom, high-tech lighting. One switch opens the blinds, another brings an outsize TV up from a chest.” Some rooms have a terrace looking over the swimming pool. Cathar castles and the Canal du Midi are nearby. M. Goujon also runs cookery courses.
