We stayed here only for one night on a short break from Lyon, we wanted to visit the Caverne Pont D'Arc and to go kayaking on the Ardeche river (both highly recommended activities if you are in this area!). The hotel itself is in a stunning location, right on the river and feels so peaceful as its down from the...

I can not write enough good things about this hotel. We stayed in a standard room and the view was breath taking. The staff were the best of any hotel we stayed in France but the stand out was the food. It was so incredibly fresh and absolutly fantastic. Not a bad thing to say

If you want total relaxation, a very friendly welcome, excellent food, comfortable bedrooms in an idyllic surrounding then Roman and Corinne don't disappoint with the Prehistoric Lodge. I stayed in an enormous lodge overlooking the river. Housing a four poster bed, a bath (with lots of very hot water) and loo, it felt like camping, albeit in a very upscale...

I was traveling with a friend and we stayed one night in this lodge. It is called prehistoric lodge. Nothing prehistoric to be found except the area where there are many caves. The room was small but had a great baclony looking over the river. Unfortunately we were not explained the lighting situation and thus had problems with the bathroom...

Beautiful setting and lovely hosts however the breakfast was a bit on the light side. We were offered only one finger sized croissant! There were other choices such as hard roles and cheese and some cold meat and jam which was always open so was full of wasps (at least 5 or 10 in every pot): one had to fend...

The setting is great, located next to the river with private beach. We stayed here three nights and had a room on a wooden platform, not a tent. Room is very tiny, basic, but clean. Private balcony is spacious and has rocking chairs. View from the balcony is amazing. Breakfast is basic, could have been better. Had one dinner at...

On our way back north from the Mediterranean, we stopped for the night here, in the middle of the Ardèche Gorges near the Pont d'Arc stone arch that spans the river. We stayed in one of their larger tents, the "hibou lodge", a spacious family tent built on a wooden platform, with a double bed, two single beds, and behind...

The Lodge is surrounded by a 'lagoon' in the Ardeche region. The views are amazing, also from your private balcony or room. The hotel has his own private beach in an incredible surrounding. We slept in a room instead of a 'lodge' and they are smaller but still comfortable. Dinner at the Lodge is very good at a reasonable price,...
