Stopover between Nice and Basel

Hi Friends,

Need your help in planning a road trip.

I'm planning to go to Nice via Milan from Basel. While coming back I don't want to come through the same way. I'd like to go to another place and stay for a night and the next day back to Basel.

Please suggest any place other than Lausanne and Geneva.

Thanks,
Sujit.

Lyon might be a good place to stop. It's a nice city with plenty to see.

I agree. Come up through Lyon and Dijon.

Re: Stopover between Nice and Basel

There is only ONE place to stop over!

Hotel de la Poste, Rue des Fosses, 38970 Corps, Frankreich

Beware of local imitations !!!

Excellent food at ridiculous prices.
Order a 3 course meal and be served 7 courses (4 free).

Decent 2 star hotel in town centre.

Choose between the Hotel, and slightly better, the Chateau.

Thanks all for the replies so far. I feel the last one is really interesting. Thanks Ittigen. Although your post looks like an ad I think its different and worth trying.

I'm still open to new ideas.

Sujit.

The other restaurants in the street are very jealous as he is always full, they even try and copy his name to confuse the customers!

Very reasonable prices. Good basic cooking, and plenty of choice!

I have heard the chateaux is something very special, so try it if you can get a reservation.
