Cybèle Idelot is one of the leaders of organic cuisine at the moment. Accompanied by her husband Franck, they opened in a former coaching inn in La Haute Vallée de Chevreuse, a guest house with five rooms and a restaurant - La Ruche - which offers delicate and responsible cuisine. The chef applies the green principles of Farm to Table that she learnt in in her Californian youth. On their estate, Cybèle and Franck maintain a dream vegetable garden and orchard which supplies La Ruche and La Table de Cybèle, their other restaurant located in Boulogne-Billancourt.

The History

Cybèle Idelot forged her natural convictions in San Francisco where she grew up. From an early age, his mother gave her a taste for fresh and healthy food that they bought together directly from local producers. She also introduced her to the principles of organic farming and recycling. Having become a chef, Cybèle applied these fundamentals from the start of her professional experience, whether she officiated in Saint-Barth or in the Hamptons. In 2013, she brought her responsible and zero waste cuisine to France with the opening of La Table de Cybèle.

Building on the success of their restaurant and eager to follow through on their convictions, Cybèle and her husband set out to become almost self-sufficient and set off in search of land where they could run a vegetable garden and a permaculture orchard. They had a crush for a former post house installed in a wooded park near Paris! They decide to install a "farm-inn" there which they will equip with rooms and a restaurant. Their dream of permaculture is materializing and now supplies their two restaurants with plants, while ingredients of animal origin are sourced in a short circuit by local producers who respect the environment.

The Table

La Ruche offers sincere and creative cuisine and offers a light and conscientious seasonal menu for vegetarians and omnivores. "Artichoke, Oshitashi, Confit Egg Yolk, Sunflower Seeds, Brown Butter Sabayon", "Glénans Sea Urchin Cream, Roasted Cauliflower, Sweet Onion, Lacto Radish, Caper Powder, Trout Caviar from the Pyrenees" or "Roasted Butternut, Quinoa Risotto, buttermilk, Hazelnuts" are enough to stimulate our taste buds and whet our appetite. In addition to the list of wines grown in biodynamics, 125 references carefully selected by Franck.

The Garden

The Domaine's permaculture farm is spread over a large garden consisting of a 1000 m2 vegetable garden, a greenhouse, a mandala, an orchard and a beehive. Not to mention the wooded park! A hectare of happiness for these Land's lovers that their hosts like to visit. When she is not officiating in the kitchen, Cybèle works the earth, advised by a permaculturist who transmitted to her the essential principles of the concept. Since 2019, she has been planting and maintaining beautiful varieties of acclimatized seasonal vegetables, herbs, herbs and spices, edible flowers as well as berries and a wide variety of fruit trees. Enough to supply the two restaurants and gourmet baskets for passing biodiversity lovers.

The Rooms

Like the rest of the Domain, the four rooms and the suite are intended to celebrate nature: from their woody names (Oak, Linden, Birch, Poplar and Plane tree) to the natural materials and soft and neutral colors that dress them, the design of the rooms is simple and cozy. On the bathroom side, you will have the pleasure of soaping up with Parisian eco-responsible products from Huygens.
