Surrounded by protective mountains- the water of Lake Annecy is reputed to be one of the purest in the world- inspiring Paul Cezanness splendid painting of the same name. The Auberge du Pere Bise restaurant is beautifully located- with its lights that twinkle reflectively at it from the surface of the lake. Impossible to be better placed. The chef Sophie Bise handles her products with a sculptors touch to create dishes that are as lovely to look at as they are to taste. She too is pure talent. The property is closed for business during the year over the following dates- 22/DEC/09- 13/FEB/10 CLUB 5C- Hotel welcomes Relais and Chateaux Club 5C members with a VIP Welcome and a Discovery Privilege. Please include the Club 5C membership number in the reservation and please show your Club 5C membership card on arrival.

Home is where the heart is.

I was born here, almost, or at least up the road in a house on Lac d'Annecy in Menthon St. Bernard. Left France right after WWII. When I graduated from Stanford GSB, I decided to take a long trip to Europe, knowing I wouldn't have the time again for awhile. L'Auberge du Pere Bise was a must. Everyone else in my family had been there. It was a three-star Michelin restaurant then, with an unassuming hotel and bathrooms down the hall. It was the greatest dinner of my life, $50 for two, and the room was about the same. The owner was very nice to me; she had gone to school with my oldest brother. I didn't come back for ten years, this time with children. The hotel was all spiffed up, and the restuarant, now only 1 Michelin star as tastes had changed, was exactly what I remembered. Dogs ate by their master's table. As I checked in, I was greeted with warm affection by the owner. "So good to see you again. I thought you might be interested in knowing what you ate the last time you were here." And there, on 3x5" index cards, was the menu of a meal eaten ten years earlier by someone who hadn't been there since. Talk about being close to your customer! I've been back several times since. There's now a far more expensive Michelin three star up the road in Veyrier du Lac (Marc Veyrat.)This is where I always stay. This is home. When I stay here, I eat at Veyrat once. Charlysne calls Marc and asks that I get very special treatment, and I do. I like the food at the Pere Bise better. This place is the most romantic rendezvous on earth. The lake is beautiful. The rooms are beautiful. The food is luscious. The owners are lovely. And Michelin owes them a star.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Have the classic food, and ask for the "marjolaine" for dessert. It's a layer cake of exquisite taste and complexity. Have it for breakfast, too.
