We spent four nights in Fleurie to attend a wedding locally, and had a very enjoyable stay at the Grand Hotel des Vins.
Fleurie is a small village, with a few essential shops, and the hotel is next to the sports facilities and the local camp site, within easy (5 minutes) walk of the centre.
The rooms are very comfortable, although a little small, ours was on the first floor with a small balcony overlooking the front of the hotel, it is quiet both externally and internally so we slept very well, and generally the hotel is extremely well maintained and run by the owners, who are pleased to help in any way they can, both with service and advice.
There are several good restaurants in the area, including L’Auberge du Cep, which has just re-opened with new owners and chef, (excellent but rather expensive), but as luck would have it, we were there during the Vendage – the grape harvest and fermentation time, so as most of the restaurants are in wineries, they were closed. For Sunday dinner we couldn’t find anywhere local and were saved by the hotel (which doesn’t have a restaurant) serving pasta and sauces at €9 each. Highly recommended in the circumstances. Breakfast was typically French, but more than adequate, with a coffee machine available for general use.
Unlike other reviewers, we had no problems with the Wi-Fi, which worked both with phones and tablets,
We would recommend the hotel for a stay in the region, and also, as it is only a few minutes from the main A6 Autoroute du Soleil as an overnight break on the way south. Unfortunately this would mean you would miss out on most of the beautiful countryside around Fleurie, but it may persuade you to return later for a longer break.
