My fiance and I will be getting married in Lanouaille, France in May 2009. We are then planning on visiting the Paris, before moving onto stops in the Provence region, Menton (just to eat Mirazur), Tuscany, and concluding our trip in either Cogne, Italy or Annecy, France. Although it is still many months from now, I have begun researching the various restaurants in the area of the hotels that we'll likely be staying in as dining well is something I take very seriously and I want to ensure that we make the right choices. One possible hotel in Provence that we are considering is La Bonne Etape in Chateau-Arnoux. There is a one-star Michelin restaurant attached, Restaurant La Bonne Etape and I was wondering if anyone had any reviews or comments as far as quailty of food, service, and ambiance regarding this place. I would also love to hear any recommendations for other good options in the area (budget is not a huge concern, but we want to try restaurants at all price levels).
Regarding Annecy, we are considering visting Clos De Sens a two-star Michelin restaurant. I have found a few reviews of this place (which have not been favorable thus far) and any information regarding the quality of the restaurant would be greatly appreciated. I am also open to any other suggestions for dining in the Annecy area.
Note: we will not be renting a car during our trip so it would be ideal for any suggestions to be very near Annecy or Chateau-Arnoux.
