We stayed one night at this hotel, having read the recommendation in the "Rough Guide". Very small room, no air conditioning, tiles dropping off in bathroom, etc. Paid extra for garden view, a mistake as had to open the window and late diners were eating/chatting very loudly until midnight in the garden. Food okay but not special. Lots of dogs...

Rooms were simple, no frills but clean and adequate; bathroom was fully equipped and pretty decent. Contrary to Ratiche's comment on having a gloomy room with a very small window, ours had 2 large windows and the room was bright and cheerful. And yes the TV was miniscule, but we did not have the time to turn it on. The...

The hotel is situated in a small and cosy town. But pretty much far away from larger cities, airports, and tourist attractions. The staff...

The courtyard and restaurant here is just fantastic! The hosts are very friendly and helpful and we felt so welcome and relaxed. The room is basic, but clean and perfectly fine. A great place near the village, so perfect for walking around. The pool and garden really make this a nice place to chill out and enjoy.

If you like mountains, forests, castles, grottes and gorges, the Ardeche is for you. If you want to stay in a hotel with character, style, faultless service from wonderful staff, exceptional food, and views across to the mountains while eating outside on a terrace with a fountain, stay in Le Carmel in the heart of Les Vans. This former Carmelite...
