Foodtripper: La Colline du Colombier

Auberge, France
01.12.2011 | by: Alexandria

Michelin-starred chef Michel Troisgros and his wife Marie-Pierre have taken an ancient farm in France and turned it into La Colline du Colombier, a stunning hotel/restaurant. But the kicker is that they managed to incorporate all of the modern elements and clever design statements without detracting form the location’s true star: the countryside setting overlooking the Loire. A weathered old stable has been converted into the restaurant where stone walls, original beams and huge, hanging glass lanterns contrast with Eames chairs and an industrial-looking, open kitchen that turns out Troisgros’ innovative take on rustic, French food. Think golden pan-fried veal sweetbreads with spicy yuzu. The fare changes with the seasons and even includes—shocker—a kids menu.

If you’re looking to stay at La Colline, the options include two original farmhouses where sensitive upgrades pair modern comforts with original details. The most innovative addition to the property, however, is a series of three “cadoles.” Designed by architect Patrick Bouchain, these futuristic looking cabins are made of wood, glass and steel with curved zinc roofs. Huge windows are aimed at prime bucolic vistas. Inside, the cabins are tricked out with quiet, modern furniture and straight-from-the-earth materials like sheep’s wool, felt and braided hemp.
