Ideally located in Grand Genève region, a few kilometres from the city of Thonon-les-Bains, close to Lake Geneva, the one-starred restaurant Refuge des Gourmets, has been part of the culinary reputation in Haute-Savoie for more than thirty years. In the kitchen, Chef Hubert Chanove magnifies seasonal products from local producers and Lake Geneva fishing. By the way, it is in Chens-sur-Léman that Serge Carraud, a faithful partner, chooses him his fresh fish, for savoury dishes.

A few kilometers from the Refuge des Gourmets, Lake Geneva offers its most beautiful features, from the villages of Nernier to Yvoire, via Thonon-les-Bains or Evian. In this environment, a real opportunity to meetings with local producers, the Refuge des Gourmets benefits from a privileged situation to offer a subtle bistronomic and gastronomic cuisine to its regular or passing guests.
The Refuge des Gourmets is a gourmet pause in Machilly.

The Chef Hubert Chanove and his team will be delighted to transport you into their universe, enlighten by seasonal vegetables and herbs, in a cuisine synonym of products from Geneva Lake and local mountains.
