Julie and Stéphane Lehembre may have found their secret planque (hideout), but they’re not just lazing around there. In this farmhouse, which they renovated with plenty of elbow grease, they opened a classy restaurant housed within part of their living room (in addition to three lovely bedrooms for rent). Cleverly unfinished walls, a light wood bar, industrial seating, a fireplace… we really feel like we’re at home with them! Tasted the night we went, cuisine made with local, seasonal products, sent out of the kitchen by Julie and served by Stéphane: crispy gyoza stuffed with ground pork and seasoned with soy sauce; tender chuck steak paired with a comforting roast carrot and squash velouté; herring in an herb crust (which unfortunately wasn’t as crispy as we would have liked!) served with potatoes and good tartar sauce; a mouthwatering almond and mirabelle plum tart or a lovely gigantic chocolate cream puff. Bonus: the very good bread baked fresh on a nearby farm. // Marcelle Claudepierre
