Ideal location to take in the local area. You can rent bikes and the immediate vicinity is pretty flat too. We booked the rooms over the road. No aircon and there is road noise, but nice rooms and lovely garden outside. The property is well kept, spotless and there is daily maid service and new linen. In the height of... More

This is an hotel a little off the beaten track in a great location on the side of a beautiful lake in the Aquitane region. Nicole and her staff are very attentive to all your needs and the restaurant has an uninterrupted view of the lake. The food is superb, but be aware that the menu is a little restricted... More

We went to this hotel for a few days and were very impressed with the service and quality of the accommodation. The room we stayed in was very clean and nicely maintained with nice decoration. The view from the balcony was stunning and it was very quiet, so we were able to sleep well. The food was marvellous...even if you... More

We came across this hotel when looking to break up our journey south. The hotel itself was fully booked but they also have a house across the road divided into guest bedrooms, each with its own patio area and furniture, surrounded by a large enclosed garden which would be ideal for families with young children. The rooms are fresh, nicely... More

We stayed at La Caravelle in 2012 and were impressed enough to break our journey south here again in 2013. Last year's room (especially the bathroom) seemed a little tired but this year the room was a lot fresher - whether they have all had a bit of a face lift we don't know. Good car park across the road,... More

The main reason for going to this part of the world is to hang out at a lake, by the beach or to go walking or cycling. La Caravelle makes a very good base. We could stroll to a beach area around the headland to swim in the lake, or drive to the coast. Being between road and water gives... More

We ate with our children at this hotel but did not stay overnight. There is a really good choice of set menus at different prices and the family who run the restaurant are so relaxed, friendly and helpful. The fish soup is out of this world! The views across the lake are amazing - we watched the fish biting and... More

Wow!! We didn't stay at the hotel but the restaurant was fantastic. Madam, managed to get us a table despite it being high season. The choice of set menu's is good, from around €20 upwards. The food is excellent, all four in our party ate differently and we all thought the same. The fish soup is probably the best I... More
