“Beautiful position, great hosts and wonderful food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

My husband and I just spent 5 days at the wonderful Hotel du Grand Capelet. The hosts are a lovely couple, very laid back and helpful. The rooms are not fancy, but they are extremely clean and tidy and everything you need after a tiring day hiking one of the many trails in the area. The food was a real highlight - delicious, copious home-cooked meals every night and excellent breakfasts with a choice of yummy, freshly made pastries, fresh yoghurt and home made jams. We particularly appreciated the picnic lunch packs too, which have just the right amounts and types of foods for hungry hikers. And of course the hotel is situated in the stunning Gordolasque valley - stupendous for hiking or meandering around the meadows in the valley. I really recommend this hotel.

The hotel itself easily gets three stars, the setting gives it its fourth, and the owners give it its fifth. This hotel is located near a very remote village at the end of a crazily narrow road – with views of mountains, snow peaks and wild animals. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed, being a little more than basic, but impeccably clean and well-tended. There is little that you could really want in addition to what the hotel already offers (OK, it’s not a 5-star, full-service resort, but if you’re thinking of staying here, that’s not what you’re looking for anyway), and everything is incredibly comfortable and inviting.
The owners are friendly and knowledgeable about the local area (and the entire region), and go above and beyond to make their guests comfortable. As someone who keeps Kosher, I bring my own food and am used to eating in my room or outside. The owner practically insisted that I eat in the main dining room, despite the fact that there was no revenue opportunity. He even laid the table for us – clearly, the comfort and satisfaction of all guests is his primary concern. When we wanted to know more about hikes and trails, he gave us insights that only a professional mountaineer could, and made perfect recommendations for me and my son.
The area itself is spectacular, and I don’t use that term lightly. The hotel is within a beautiful area of the Alps, which is highly accessible and stunningly beautiful. Nature abounds, and you have the choice of keeping to established paths, or rambling around the mountains, amongst the wildlife. I would highly recommend this part of France to nature lovers, and I would not hesitate to return to this hotel, and indeed intend to return for another holiday.
