L'Esprit Blanc: Restaurants and Hotels by Georges Blanc

Each of these establishments presents a distinctive feature; it may be located on the riverbank, in the heart of a nearby city or in the countryside, in Mâcon or Beaujolais regions.

These places can offer a pleasant and tasty break while you are visiting or working in this beautiful region, or on your way to Southern France, the Alpes, Switzerland or Italy.

Over the last 20 years, we tried to create around this concept a certain number of establishments that represent the perfect combination of our values. This is what we call “L’Esprit Blanc”: Authenticity, Simplicity, Quality, Conviviality and Affordability.
