We stayed here one night on our journey from Italy homeward to England. It proved to be a good choice. The drive to Ornans off the autoroute took us through some beautiful leafy roads alongside rivers. Ornans doesn’t appear to be a touristic town. It was interesting to walk around and view the old characterful buildings. We particularly enjoyed the former monastery and the lavoirs. From previous travels in France we have become accustomed to looking out for the lavoir in any town we visit. Here there were two. Interestingly they were completely different designs and as we have consistently found, both were preserved very well and decorated with lovely floral displays. This was the first time however that we had seen a notice of death and forthcoming funeral of an 80 year old resident. The neat little notice was posted in both lavoirs and added a poignant memory. Inside the hotel is well designed, modern and clean. The shower was good although the bathroom was very small. We ate in the hotel restaurant. The manager helpfully talked us through the menu and explained the local specialities. The food was delicious and the wine was good, the service was excellent. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this for a stop over. There is no separate entry for the restaurant so considering the meal has moved my rating up from a 3 to a 4* It was the night before Bastille day and we were treated to a magnificent firework display high up on the escarpment. Bravo Ornans!
