We just happened to 'stumble' into this place because we needed a room for the night. It was so great that we stayed for 3 nights instead of just 1 as originally planned. Everything at the place is just perfect. Very friendly owners and staff and extremley good restaurant with a stunning view of the mountains. We'll be back in...

A lovely French country inn perched on the hillside of old Elne with a postcard view of the Pyrenees, delicious food, a wine list featuring the local delicacies and, above all, a friendly and welcoming staff, particularly the waitresses. A quiet town with a church, cloister and museum all worth visiting and many artists' studios, 20 mins from the beach...

We spent one week here at the end of August and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The welcome we received from both the owners and all of the staff could not be faulted. Evening meals on the terrace were superb - especially the desserts. Our room had an amazing view over the mountains and was clean and nicely decorated. An added...

We initially planned to stay three nights at le Cara Sol but just before setting out had to extend our stay to five nights - we wondered if we had been wise. We need not have worried. The old part of Elne is on a hill top and the hotel was beautifully situated to take advantage of stunning views across...

We have eaten at the restaurant a number of times and this time we decided to stay overnight on a B&B basis. The hotel owners and staff were very friendly and welcoming, the room was modern, clean and very cosy. We will be back in the future in the summer to experience the wonderful views yet again

Have eaten here before and have enjoyed it. Recent change in ownership has seen refurb of the restaurant. Now very modern, and the food is modern too. Good quality - bit pricey but worth it. Service needs to improve a bit - and quite slow with the food. We ate inside, but there is a very nice external terrace with...

Clean and modern with very reliable wifi. The Cara Sol is set in a fabulous very convenient town. Elne allows you easy access to the mountains and the beach. The breakfast is fresh and plentiful and the evening menu is comprehensive. The views from the bedrooms are just fabulous. A really lovely hotel.

We have stayed at the Cara Sol about 5 times and have always been very impressed by the quality of food, accommodation and ambience provided by John Sutcliffe and his team. However, John has sold the business to a French couple and we happened to arrive on John's last day (30th June) and stayed for the first 4 days under...
