Rêves Gourmands is more B&B than hotel. The guest rooms are rooms in the house of the charming, friendly, cheerful hosts, Cecile and Bob. Our room was large and cosy and the bathroom seemed to go on forever. Entering the room evoked the feeling of going into the warm comfort of our own familiar bedroom; we wanted to pull the duvet up to our chins and listen to the wind whipping the trees in the darkness outside. But the most wonderful experience at Rêves Gourmands was, for us, the dinner. Dinner is something one has to book at least 24 hours in advance. It is a 4-course meal, planned by the chef (Bob), and it is a surprise for the guests. The first guest to book chooses the price range. We were 15 to 20 people seated at a long table in the large kitchen/ dining room/ living room. The fact that people spoke different languages mattered little. Cecile, fluent in French, English and German, introduced the menu items. We savoured the intriguing and transporting flavours of each item in our meal. In between courses, we sipped delicious local wine and chatted, largely with an interesting and well-travelled couple who spoke excellent English. In the morning, we gathered again at the long table for breakfast, though now not everyone arrived at the same time. Breakfast, good and satisfying, more homey than exotic, eased us back into the reality of our next travel day. And now, our brief stay at Rêves Gourmands lives on in our memory and in our dreams - a true "Rêve Gourmand".
