Pancake day comes but once a year for the most of us, but at Cr̻perie La Versache it's an everyday occurrence. Indulge, and then indulge some more the very next day.

There are two restaurants at the three-star Hotel Europe; a casual pizzeria for the day and a more upscale restaurant for the evening. We know what we prefer.
Hotel Europe

La Gougra
Step into fondue heaven at La Gougra, which offers more fabulous varieties than you could ever sample in any one visit.

Creature comforts abound at Le Beausite, as do jaw-droppingly beautiful views.
