Chef Sullivan le Ternuec

The Meilleur Ouvrier de France, Jean Luc L’HOURRE, took him under his wing in 2012 and accompanied him in his career until his last position as Chef at the Boutique Hotel Origins Luxury Lodge in Costa Rica.
Back in France, he naturally chose the Gard and more particularly the Table du Castillon to express his creativity while enjoying the richness and variety of local Provencal products.

Castillon-du-Gard… Nature in the south
A small medieval village overlooking the valley of Gardon and its scrub, between vines and cherry trees. Formerly the residence of the Uzès bishop, it was taken over during the religious wars, passing between the hands of Catholics and Protestants like treasure…
But now Castillon is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful villages in Gard: its position in two hundred-year old olive groves, its paved, narrow and winding streets, the old ramparts, its mullioned windows, its expressive gargoyles… Plenty to remind us that time has passed and left a wonderfully unique memory.
