Posh hotel restaurants in city centers are the obvious, not to say predictable choice for fine food lovers. But those who are willing to venture outside the city for their gastronomic experiences will find a parallel scene of fine dining in the atmospheric surrounds of the countryside.
Tablethotels online magazine, a fantastic source of travel recommendations for the jet setting crowd, has complied a list of the best foodie hotels outside the city limits. A 12 room hotel in the Beleasean jungle, a converted manor in the English countryside and an old Provencal farmhouse – all these small and out of the way hotels offer fine dining with imaginative menus and the best local ingredients. Add to that the joy of the journey and you get an all senses experience which is bound to leave a long lasting impression.
