Every hotel and restaurant has it's own ambiance, and the cheerful and warm reception guests receive here is due to the attention by Odile and Francis, the owners/proprietors and chef of this country inn. We arrived on a chilly, rainy day and what a treat to find a fire going in the large (at least 10-foot) country fireplace of the lounge. We stayed in a nicely decorated ground floor room #2 which was of very good size with a comfortable large double bed. The bathroom was very large, all modern, with a hand held shower head. Both rooms were immaculately clean.
The entire dining experience in this lovely Michelin one-star restaurant is closely supervised by Francis, the chef, and it is a testament to his organizational skills that he can help you choose a wine, greet each table, let you smell the truffles, and still pull off a wonderful meal. The pacing, timing, and service was right-on. Again, the atmosphere is relaxed, friendly, and intimate, none of the stuffy formality one often finds in one-star establishments.
Odile and Francis' younger daughter helped with the service that evening and she was excellent. Their older daughter runs a hotel and restaurant (Hotel du Nord) just up the road in Quarre Les Tombes, so if Auberge d'Atre is full, I would not hesitate to try staying there. This family knows what they are doing and I think gracious hospitality is in their blood!
