Travel Blogs from Bourbonne-les-Bains
We came back down the street and found a nice hotel restaurant for a super lunch. We had a specialty of the region - duck confit inside puff pastry, served on a bed of caramelized onions and apples, with a small salad topped with the local Langres cheese. Delicious!
