Le Bougainvillier and the 4 Spice Hotel is an incredible place to stay in Saint Galmier. It's on a beautiful property with gigantic trees and only a few steps from a gorgeous scenic river walk. As well, the Badoit source and factory are a brief walk and Elisabeth is more than happy to arrange a tour of the facility. The city itself has a beautiful casino and buildings that date back to the renaissance. It's easy to walk the city and well worth it to observe the beautiful flower arrangements that are planted everywhere.
The rooms in the 4 Spice Hotel are very modern and beautiful and I highly recommend booking a table for the restaurant, Le Bougainvillier. Chef Gerard is passionate about food and works magic with foie gras. I seriously suggest coming hungry and getting the largest tasting menu. It will be worth it! Be sure to ask Elisabeth about what wines to pair also.
I wasn't disappointed by a single aspect of the restaurant or hotel. The hospitality of the Charbonnier's is out of this world. I will recommend this place to everyone visiting France and it is well worth a detour to see the country and get away from the big cities.
