From the age of seven, Philippe Chevrier knew that he would be a cook. His childhood dream was nourished by the dishes created by his mother, who gave him a passion for good food. Philippe’s dream has become a reality. This is an excellent reason to stop off in the heart of Satigny, Switzerland’s largest wine-producing municipality. In this immaculately renovated former vine grower’s farm, Philippe Chevrier and Damien Coche serve, amongst other treats, whole oven-baked John Dory, sauteed scallops in sepia ink, and Limousin rack of lamb baked in hay and aromatic herbs in a sealed casserole.
Perched on a hill in the heart of the Geneva wine-growing country, the Domaine de Châteauvieux is located in Satigny (canton of Geneva), the largest wine-growing region in Switzerland. This venerable old wine-growing farm dating from the 16th century has retained all the charm of bygone days. 12 rooms and 1 suite have been tastefully decorated and offer a magnificent view over the vineyards, the Rhone and the mountains. The fine-dining restaurant, which was awarded two Michelin stars and which was scored 19/20 in the Gault Millau guide, is run by Philippe Chevrier and Damien Coche.
