What is Logis de France?:

Logis de France is an organization of 300-plus smaller hotels, mostly akin to an American inn, which are almost always connected to a fine restaurant. The Logis de France are a great option for those who want a true French lodging experience, but the assurance of certain standards. Logis de France's independently-run inns average 19 rooms, so they are on the smaller side without being as tiny as a chambre d'hote.

Logis de France for Foodies:

Logis de France is the obvious lodging choice for foodies. Sometimes dinner for two can actually cost as much as the room (but it's almost always worth it) at a Logis de France hotel. You will usually be asked if you want demi-pension or full-pension, which refers to the meals. If you are fairly certain you will eat dinner there, go ahead and reserve the demi-pension (usually dinner and a breakfast of pastries and coffee). Often times you can wait until you arrive and ask for the pension to be included. I have had some of my most indulgent and divine meals in France at a Logis de France hotel.
