36 place d'Armes 71150 Chagny − France
Member of Relais & Chateaux
A former coach house inn during the 15th century, then transformed into a hotel, the Hotel du Commerce, the building was renovated in 1960 to revive its heritage and create new rooms under a new name, "Lameloise". A place in harmony with the table, its region and its terroir. A mansion refined throughout the years, decorated with elegance and discretion.
Everything here adds to an atmosphere that renders you immediately at ease: soft lighting, prints and fabrics chosen for each room and each bedroom, Burgundy stone combined with wood and wrought iron forged from Burgundy industries–all exude time and authenticity. A collection designed with sophistication and care for guest comfort. Sixteen air conditioned rooms for your comfort.
The area, that of Burgundy, an anchor for the Maison Lameloise, a veritable institution of French Gastronomy and which appeared in the first Michelin Guide in 1900, is the source of more than 90 years of a certain art de vivre. It is here, in Chagny, that a history of Chefs & stars began where three Lameloise generations have succeeded, Pierre, Jean & Jacques.
The history of a gourmet dynasty ensued from 2009, Chef Eric PRAS (Meilleur Ouvrier de France in 2004) and Frédéric LAMY, the host, at the head of this former Coach House from the fifteenth century.
A true institution of French gastronomy and a charming hotel, the Maison Lameloise has cultivated art de vivre since more than 90 years. In medieval times the cuisine attracted already the Dukes of Burgundy. This long and delightful story is continued by Chef Éric Pras, MOF (Best Craftsman of France), and Frédéric Lamy at the head of the former coach house dating back to the 15th century. The fresh, precise and delicate cuisine of Éric Pras gives this iconic restaurant a new, young image. With the fine tart of Burgundy snails and the potagère of fresh herbs or the suckling veal chop rubbed with marjoram and orange, it pays a delicious tribute to the region and the heritage of the property.
Regional traditions form a fertile cradle for the preservation of culture and skills, as exemplified by this property with architecture that dates back several hundred years.
This former post office, with typical French ceilings, sculpted wooden staircases and vaulted rooms, is one of Burgundy’s architectural treasures. Its spirit has been carefully preserved during each restoration. This respect for tradition can also be seen in the kitchens, under the watchful eye of the Chef. Regional products are showcased, thanks to a supply chain that is as short and direct as possible. Which means, for example, finding Bresse butter on the breakfast table. Here, raw ingredients are treasured and valued at each stage in their preparation, and fresh vegetables sourced in small quantities to avoid waste.
IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE BIGGEST NAMES...
At 15, Eric entered into the kitchen like a religion: it was his vocation. He completed his apprenticeship at the Hotel Central de Renaison and since then has strung together the best names: Maison Troisgros in Roanne, Bernard Loiseau in Saulieu, Pierre Gagnaire in Saint Etienne, Antoine Westermann in Strasbourg, the Belle Otéro in Cannes, Régis Marcon in Saint-Bonnet-le Froid … it is in contact with these icons of French Gastronomy that he was able to develop his personality, enriching his own culinary language.
ERIC PRAS, PRODUCT FIRST!
Simplicity and elegance at the service of emotion.
Creative and demanding, Eric Pras was able to make his mark on the Maison Lameloise menu, thus giving new life to this mythical table. His cuisine, fresh, precise and delicate, banished the balance of power. It is thought around the product, to put it forward: this is the recipe that enhances the land. Particular attention is paid to pairing food and wine.
THE TABLE AND THE KITCHEN, THE HEART AND LUNGS OF THE HOUSE.
Five rooms offer the restaurant different volumes and atmospheres so that everyone may find a sprig from home. The architecture of the building created the interior spaces and their management has evolved over time. Exposed stone and wooden beams still honour French and Burgundian tradition.
THE ART OF WELCOMING YOU SINCE 1921
The soul of the house would not be without an attentive staff, a strong team attached to the Lameloise spirit, which is still witness and relay of this hospitality that survives from generation to generation.
Please fill this form for individuals or for groups and you shall receive an answer written by a live person at Maison Lameloise. This is the only way you can know exactly what room types are available for the dates you want, and the best possible rate, because you are dealing directly with the hotel.
Bear in mind that websites set up to give an automatic answer, work with allocated quotas given by the hotel, therefore when it appears there are no rooms available for the date you want, this is not necessarily true, because they never allocate ALL the rooms to third parties.
