Domaine du Cholet

route de st thomas , St Laurent en Royans, 26190 France (Show map)


True Franco-Scottish hospitality in a real 19th century chateau in one of our tastefully decorated rooms with en-suite facilities. Peaceful, extensive grounds and a private river beach to relax by when you've explored the little-known, spectacular Vercors, home of the French resistance. We (Sue and Dominique) will be delighted to suggest places to visit, hikes or 2-wheel rides on trails or quiet roads. Breakfast on the patio with home-made jams, dinner with local dishes or produce from our garden, and above all the pleasure of sharing an experience.

Signature Dish

'Ravioles' are a local speciality: similar to ravioli, but smaller, and filled with cottage cheese and herbs. They can be prepared in many ways: poached, in a gratin, or fried and served with a salad. Sue has created her own recipe using 'Clairette', the local white sparkling wine.
