We stayed here for a couple of nights in July on our road trip through France and Spain. We wanted to stay somewhere not too far from the beaches but far enough away for peace and quiet and nice views. Cara Sol is a great place and the owner works hard to ensure his guests and restaurant customers are well... More

Family of four ate here at 2:30pm.. Considering other restaurant in this peaceful town were finished we were delighted to find somewhere open! To our delight the food here was fab! The nicest we have had on our trip here in France. Service was great too. Well done & keep up the great service!

I stayed here with a small group in the area for work, it was an absolute delight to stay at the hotel. Everything felt clean, stylish, tasteful and designed with the guests in mind. Our room was gorgeous, with views of the countryside and a simple, fresh design which I love. The food is really outstanding, a small, well chosen... More

I can't vouch for the accommodation as I didn't stay here but the food is fantastic and the owner extremely personable. The menu is typical for the region and is priced reasonably. Elne is a lovely little town and this hotel makes it all the more special. I will be back next year (again)!

Just spent four nights at this lovely hotel. The setting is stunning and the hotel is bright and airy with lovely rooms all of which share the amazing views. The food is great and while there are other places to eat in Elne we couldn't resist coming back each night as there is a good range of well presented options... More

This Hotel just gets better, quainter and more appealing every time I visit. The food is superb and totally relevant for the atmosphere and panoramic views that impress everyone who visits. The rooms are clean, new, functional and simply there for sleep, lay-ins, siestas and anything else required. Run by Jon, a seriously good cook, it is a hidden gem... More

We arrived in search of sun and a relaxing break in a picturesque location. This is it! John (owner) was very welcoming and a pleasure to talk to. He gave us some good recommendations for local beaches and trips. The room was lovely with a great view (from the bathroom too!) and furnished to a high standard. Nice outside area... More

I stayed at this hotel in March 2014 while on a business trip. The views were fantastic - snow-capped mountains in the distance; the set menu each evening was excellent; the staff were very friendly. The room was comfortable, quiet and had wifi. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone travelling in this region. It's also only a... More

I have stayed here a couple of times and the setting, service and food have been faultless. I now often visit to enjoy food that is worthy of a great restaurant anywhere, but at reasonable prices and with a vista that money can't buy. Would highly recommend as a stopping point to break the journey from UK to Spain. The... More

Good location on the centre of the old town. Spacious room, comfortable bed, good bathroom and everything spotless. Great view of the mountains. Nice breakfast. Only a nights stopover, and it was February, but what I saw of Elne and the hotel I liked.
