An old village hotel in a pleasant setting just off main thoroughfare. We were well received and made very comfortable. The only issue that was of concern is that we were quite tired after a day's driving and the excellent evening meal had to be taken at leisure. We waited almost an hour before we got our first course in a small beautiful dining room which have every appearance of being adequately staffed. The delays may have been a result of the meal requiring the culinary skills of one particular chef.

The hotel is a short drive (~ 7 km) from Barcelonette in a ski area. It was quite difficult to find because of the confusing signs. Just keep driving to the ski lift area. The room was nice, although on the smaller side. Separate bathroom and toilet. The mountain view from the window was stunning. Excellent starting point for hiking (summer visit) and biking trips. As in most hotels in the region the free WiFi didn't work.
We were on motorbikes, and arrived late (11ish). No problem apparently, and we got a cheese platter for supper: very nice. We stayed three nights, and overall the restaurant food was great. The staff and owners were very nice. Would definitely consider staying there again, especially if you didn't want to be in town.
This is a family run hotel. The son speaks reasonable English but everyone else speaks French making it a very authentic experience.
Due to car trouble we arrived late but we were still made very welcome (including our two West Highland Terriers!)
We ate in the restaurant.The 20 and 22 euro menus were excellent and the portions were very generous.They were happy to provide vegetarian options. All of the staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly.
Breakfast was also lovely with apple juice from the local village.
They phoned a local garage to have our car towed and when it was ready they took us to the garage to pick it up. While the car was being repaired we spent the morning by the swimming pool in the extensive park.
Anyone who stays in a chain hotel in preference to this must be crazy!

We went for a 3 day skiing break early April 2014. Flew into Nice, and had a taxi to the resort. The Hotel is in an excellent position right on the slopes but also easy access for cars at the southern end of the resort and plenty of parking, if needed.
We arrrived at 14:30 and the reception does not open til 15:00 (you cannot even get into the hotel without a key code). Luckily some other guests were going in as we arrived and we were able to leave our cases in reception and go and get some lunch. Would have been difficult if we had had to wait outside with our cases. Hotel staff were friendly and we checked in quickly on our return at about 15:30
Our appartment was a 2 room appartment for 4 which was really spacious, well equipped and clean. 2 single beds in 1 room and comfortable large sofa bed in the lounge/ kitchen diner. Plus a huge bathroom. Tip: take cleaning stuff, cloth, washing up liquid etc, as you have to clean the appartment on leaving. We were due to take the bus back to Nice at 17:00 on the last day, but had to check out at 10am. However, Staff very helpful and we could leave our cases in a locked room and we could change after skiing and use hotel facilities until we left. Would definitely use the hotel again.
