Why I Love This Spot!

  • When you say the word “France” to me, my first thought is rolling landscapes, dotted with small hamlets, and sprinkled in the mix are the most inviting, and I might say, romantic, manor houses. The full picture-package is one of a refined and genteel lifestyle that sucks me in.  Add to that image –– fabulous food and wines paired perfectly.

You MUST visit the Logis de la Cadene Restaurant. 

We might never have found this alluring restaurant had it not been for the advice of a waiter who knew we were going to Saint Emilion the next day.  He said it was fabulous but he did not mention it was a Michelin star winner.  From the decor, to the waitstaff, to the service, to the innovative presentation, to the melt-in-your-mouth creations--it was a wondrous experience.
