In the heart of the old spa of Charbonnières-les-Bains, in a large landscaped park, Le Pavillon de la Rotonde is a place dedicated to pleasure and relaxation. Opening onto spacious terraces, the 16 rooms and suites with their modern take on 1930s style boast direct access to the dream spa with its majestic pool and black mosaics. A prestigious backdrop to the talents of Chef Philippe Gauvreau that culminate in truly exceptional cuisine. Under the aegis of Philippe Gauvreau and Frédéric Fass, an authentic lifestyle has come into being.

Philippe Gauvreau
The cuisine of Philippe Gauvreau, enjoyed in the delightful setting of a lush green estate, plays its part in the creation of an authentic contemporary art de vivre. He arrived at this prestigious property in Charbonnières-les-Bains in 1993, after having learnt his art in some of the greatest restaurants (Le Grand Véfour, with Jacques Maximin at Le Negresco, Ledoyen), and created what is a leading gourmet restaurant in the region around Lyon. In his superb 260m2 kitchens, he creates seasonal dishes with influences from both sides of the Mediterranean – such as “Tagine of whole lobster with Provençal stuffed vegetables, cassolette of couscous with aubergine confit, crustacean jus with Oriental spices”. A Master of taste, he offers cookery courses for adults and for “gastrogones” (“gones” = “kids” in the local Lyon dialect), with children‟s classes from 7 to 14 years old.

So that his guests can have a wonderful time and enjoy the finest vintages free of cares, he provides a free taxi so that they can return home without mishap.
