How about a romantic and gourmet getaway without straying too far from Paris? Head to the Domaine de la Corniche near Giverny, which offers you a formula combining relaxation and good mountain dishes, all with a view of the Seine! Fancy a romantic fondue or raclette?
A stay not too far from Parisin the Yvelines, which gives us mountain air? This is what the Corniche area until the end of February 2023. Let’s go recharge our batteries on the banks of the Seine in a natural setting, enjoy a charming bistro, a session in the SPA and a lunch smelling of mountain cheese in the ski cabins, all at an attractive price , we love it.
Having all the advantages of the mountain like the hot winethe spatula, fondue, sauna and hammam, without going too far from Paris and without too much effort, inevitably, makes you want! Time for an enchanted parenthesis, you go to Rolleboise, stronghold of 7815 minutes from Giverny, to take it easy for a weekend combining relaxation and pleasure.
In the program of the €308 offer:
- One night in a cozy nest at the Domaine de la Corniche (breakfast included)
- 3-course dinner at the bistronomic table “20 du Domaine”
- 1 hour of relaxation at the Spaquana
- A mountain dive for lunch at “La Base Vernon 148” station the next day at noon.
Upon arrival, we discover not a hotel, but an entire area made up of several houses and buildings. The central building, where the outdoor swimming pool is located, houses the restaurant protagonist of “Le Panoramique”, the billiardsThe room of cinema and the bar. It is the ideal place to come and have a drink after a meal, indulge in an evening film screening or even a game of billiards to have fun.
After collecting our keys (or rather our magnetic card), we go down the side street to find out about our one night stay. In a beautiful stone house, overlooking the Seine and facing a lush setting, we discover a room full of charm. Something to delight lovers. We point out that the minibar is included in the offer, it’s up to us to get the drinks while we put down our things.
Come dinner time, we go to another family to find out the 20 of the Domain, a bistro which, as the name suggests, favors beautiful bottles. A piece of advice, let yourself be guided by the local host who will be able to concoct a good deal for you food and wine to support your choices
At the restaurant, Gravelax salmon joins stuffed cabbage of lamb with root vegetables. We are in the kitchen that smells of the earth and preferably of local products.
We conclude with a nice sweet homemade, or from the estate bakery, and we are full. The cinema, the spa or the chess game in the lounge bar are ours.
After a rejuvenating night, let’s go enjoy the breakfast at the Panoramic. You can also opt for breakfast delivered to your room if you wish. For our part, we do not miss the beautiful view of the arm of the Seine. Viennese pastries from La Ruche, cold cuts, eggs on request, hot drinks and hot chocolate, everything is there.
The offer allows one hour of access to the Spaquina by reservation, giving access to pool heated interiors, the hammam, the outdoor jacuzzi and the sauna. This is enough to spend a good time decompressing and letting go as a couple.
After this well-deserved break, let’s go to Vernon Base 148the restaurant turned into ski station. Located in Vernon, 20 minutes from the estate, this unusual place overlooks the Seine, facing the Old Mill still present on the medieval bridge.
We then take advantage of a mountain offer that offers fondue, tartiflette, raclette and company, all obviously accompanied by mulled wine.
Comfortably installed and heated with heating and plaids, we like to admire the Seine.
Here, our enchanted interlude ends, so let’s take the opportunity to take a tour of Giverny or to La Roche Guyon to discover one of the most beautiful villages in France.
