France - Hotels

For some, a hotel is just somewhere to stay the night and to eat breakfast in the morning. However, if you are following a GF diet then the ability to provide with a good breakfast and an in house restaurant can be high on your list of priorities. Here are some of our recommendations.

Sofitel La Defense
La Defense, Paris View On Map
For various reasons we chose to stay at the Sofitel La Defense. Before going to Paris we emailed and asked for gluten free breakfast items and got no response (in a kind of usual hotel fashion). Anyway being that it was France, I decided not to expect anything. When we got to breakfast the next morning, I went off into my usual coeliac hotel survival mode to forage for anything suitable from the breakfast items. I found: cheese, fruit, yoghurt, meats, fresh sauteed potatoes, scrambled eggs from egg (some hotels have a nasty habit of adding flour when making scrambled egg: WHY?), hot aubergine and courgettes cooked in a pot with fresh herbs. Needless to say I was content. It was only when Mr G got up to go to the bread section he noticed at his eye line height (just short of six foot above ground level) well above the gluten bread a plate of clearly labelled "pain sans gluten"! You could have knocked me down with a feather I was more than surprised. Things are most definitely changing in Paris. The bread was actually very good. It reminded me a lot of the Schar but it was a whole loaf rather than just a section.

Chateau de Villars
Villars, Aquitaine View On Map
We recently stayed for a week's full board at the Chateau de Villars, which specialises in fine French cuisine, all totally gluten-free. Bill, the chef, caters for coeliacs in particular but other food intolerances and special dietary needs are easily accomodated. Fresh, local produce is used to create sumptuous feasts... think 4 course dinners featuring poulet au riesling, tarte au citron..and relax in the knowledge that it's all gluten-free. The Chateau itself is elegant but comfortable, hosts Kevin & Bill cannot do enough for their guests and are a fount of knowledge about the local area, which boasts beautiful pastoral countryside, historic towns and castles and awe-inspiring limestone caves. If you can't spare a week, stay for a couple of nights or even just have dinner there if you're in the area, you won't regret it!

Chateau de Villars
Villars, Aquitaine View On Map
A superb week in the French countryside. The food is out of this world and it is gluten free. The opportunity to eat dinner, some nights in the dining room, some on the terrace or at a barbeque by the pool is not to be missed (and breakfast and lunch were excellent as well). The rooms are very comfortable and are all individually decorated.

There is plenty to do within a very short distance walking, cycling or driving. We loved Brantome, the Venice of the Perigord, but the Grottes de Villars (caves) and Chateau Puyguilhelm were also well worth the visit. If we went again, we might give canoing on the dronne a miss but others from the Chateau thoroughly enjoyed it. Kevin and Bill are wonderful hosts.
