Hôtel de la Villeon, Hôtel de la Truffe
Truffles, the treasure of the Ardèche
There are ingredients in France that have a magical power and whose strength and rarity are recognized all over the world. We could mention wine without hesitation, but there is one product of the earth that is being pulled out with even more fervour, it is truffles. In Ardèche, truffles are, perhaps even more than elsewhere, this black diamond as those who love them and this terroir call it. Discover its subtleties, the picking, the selection, its transformation in the kitchen, can be the occasion for a real stay in Ardèche, between a charming hotel and the discovery of truffles in the drome.
Between History and Gastronomy

Our hotel is a magnificent 18th century residence, a true architectural heritage of the region, which has been transformed through patience and passion into a magnificent cocoon where you can spend a weekend. Local craftsmen have put their love of the region and its heritage into the renovation of this building. Today, it is a charming hotel. These 16 rooms and 4 suites offer visitors the same attention to detail, the same joy of sharing an elegant decoration in the context of a historic site. The refinement of the rooms is the strength of this establishment, which does not forget the modern comfort. Queen Size bedding, high-speed internet, air conditioning, cable TV, large marble bathroom, you can't blame this luxury hotel. Hotel, or rather it would be necessary to talk about experience so much one likes to take the time to settle down at the bar le Gabriel. Truffle lovers will be at home. The discovery of this treasure with a truffle grower partner, the culinary experience to share with a chef and restaurateur in the hotel itself make it a unique place to discover truffles. Hôtel de la Villeon is an ideal meeting point for truffle lovers, one of those addresses that only amateurs can give each other, almost as secret as a good place to pick truffles.
