« Be at one with nature in this Sologne coaching inn with its ecological soul »

Description of the establishment

Thanks to its romantic name and the wood crackling in its traditional fireplace, looks like it comes straight out of an epic novel. Located just 90 minutes from Paris in the heart of the Sologne, "L'Auberge du Cheval Blanc" - the White Horse Inn is a former 17th century post house has been converted into a pleasant gourmet establishment by Ludovic Poyau, the chef, where flavours and spices take pride of place. Each room is a small discovery giving onto a terrace, courtyard or a blooming garden. Even if you don't have a horse to hand, a bike ride in the countryside is most enjoyable.

Our meal was too expensive though very good. 42 euros for only a three-course meal is too much. There were no wines under 30 euros a bottle and no half-bottles at all.The Loire is just up the road and has good reasonably priced wines.

Beautiful Hotel. Tastefully decorated. We had a disabled room as I had requested and a lot of thought had gone into the layout of the room. The bed was really comfortable. Disappointed that the restaurant was closed on the day we went but that was not fault of hotel but with the booking site. Well recommended.

The auberge itself and it's location are charming with a delightful rear garden in which to relax and dine being particularly welcome after a long drive. It is perfectly situated for an overnight stay when travelling from Dieppe to the south of France. The staff were professional, welcoming and attentive and the inclusive meal was outstanding. I'd like to keep this place a secret but it deserves praise.
