We've been this week in this amazing place 2km away from Tavertet in the middle of the valley. It's a fantastic hotel with some cottages and a bar. Totally recomended if you want to be in a quiet and peaceful place, sorrounded by high mountains and breathtaking views. If you're only visiting, you can have a salad and a good... More

This was my second time staying here. It is a beautiful peaceful place run by a fantastic lady. I loved waking every morning and swimming laps. The breakfast was healthy and filling. You can't beat the views

Have just returned from a wonderful week in Sou Cottage at L'Avenc. We will always remember our stay. It is completely silent. The local walking is rugged and wonderful and the bakery in nearby Rupit a real treat. The cottage was perfect for the needs of a family - 2 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, washing machine. The 25m pool and table... More

This place is truly special. Incredible scenery, beautifully restored old house and adjacent cottages, simply landscaped gardens with herbs, shrubs and trees; overall a peaceful, natural retreat. We love the focus here on the simple, natural, local, organic - low impact living (recycling, use of natural products, in house generated wind energy) and the environment. This is not your mainstream... More

I spend a week here for a writing retreat. It is set with a breathtaking view of mountain cliffs. We stayed in a cottage built from what were once stables. The accommodation was comfortable and the view beautiful. The indoor swimming pool was just a few steps away. The family who own L'Avenc provided excellent, friendly service. The original house...

We recenlty spent 5 days in one of the L'Avenc apartments. The apartments were very spacious, tastefully decorated and and very comfortable. We all loved the incredible indoor pool. Our hosts Belinda and Tammy were very gracious and helpfully in providing us local tips on walks, sights and restaurants. I really enjoyed reading A Castle in Spain by Matthew Parris... More

Previous reviews are not wrong, this place is very special and not to be missed. The family dream and fairy tale story is something out of a book, ( there is of course a real book about it all ) well worth reading all about it, and, if you are luck enough as we were, given the opportunity of seeing...

The hotel and cottage complex stands proudly atop a high mountain plateau. The views are extraordinary and the welcome and service is exemplary. Do stay here for peace, wildlife and some of the best walking there is.

Just returned from a one week stay in L'Avenc. We'd read all the details, looked at all the photographs but arrived absolutely stunned. No photographs can do justice to the landscape and accommodation. I agree with other reviewers but would like to add:- we stayed in a studio and were surprised at how spacious it was. I think it measured... More

L'Avenc is a real surprise. A family home that's become the nerve centre of a tranquil B&B "complex", an information centre for walkers and hikers, a spa retreat, all wrapped up in some truly spectacular views. The immediate impression of the cavernous underground parking and lift may put you in mind of a Bond villain's secret lair, but once you... More
