Welcome to Le Coq Hardi hotel and restaurant on the banks of the river Loire

Enjoy your gourmet fine dining experience in Burgundy at Le Coq Hardi hotel and restaurant on the banks of the river Loire. We are open all year-round in the charming wine producing village of Pouilly-sur-Loire, a place that gave its name to our famous local tipple, Pouille Fume. If you love fine wine and gourmet cuisine head on over to Le Coq Hardi.

Our hotel/restaurant is located in a beautiful and protected nature reserve in the Loire Valley. Le Coq Hardi is in river and vineyard country and nestles in gardens overlooking the river Loire, a perfect spot for strolling. A lovely rural setting for your holiday in this little corner of the Nievre, between Sancerre and Nevers.

Le Coq Hardi is primarily a gourmet restaurant in Burgundy, a fine dining experience to share as a couple or with family and friends. Located on the legendary N7 trunk road, our restaurant is accompanied by our 3-star hotel with 9 luxury rooms perfect for extending your holiday in Burgundy.

We are happy to organise banquets and seminars and endeavour to make gatherings with work colleagues or family extra special. Our restaurant can seat up to 45 people and there is a meeting room at your disposal if required. Cocktails with finger food can be served in our shaded terrace or in the garden – simply perfect.

A place packed with history

Discover a building with a history on the N7. Situated on the ancient Blue Route to the Med, the former Auberge Au Relais Fleuri welcomed travellers from all over France. This section of the legendary holiday route from Paris to the Cote d’Azur always appealed as an oasis of calm – a lovely place for a relaxing break.

A building with character, the hostel managed to hang on to its old-world charm over the years. It is this authenticity – so rare today – that captivated Dominique Fonseca and his wife Françoise. They fell head over heels for the building and subsequently bought it. Further investment in the premises restored the building to its former glory.

Hospitality and fine dining are the watchwords at Le Coq Hardi. This hotel restaurant near Cosne-sur-Loire  oozes with the charm of this French way of life and nods affectionately to its past.  The building lives again due to the passion and labour of its owners; a devotion that is shared on a daily basis with guests.
