The Auberge du Roua was a delightful and unique surprise, a 17th-century stone farmhouse remodeled into a small luxury hotel on the outskirts of the family beach resort Argeles sur Mer. To be perfectly candid, I chose this place from the Expedia website based mainly on the inviting photo of a small swimming pool surrounded by patio and palm trees. The grounds were really far more beautiful than the photo suggested, and the pool and shaded lounge chairs a peaceful respite from the crowded, go-go atmosphere of a Mediterranean beach resort in August. We enjoyed our strolls around nearby country lanes lined with vineyards. The architecture is stunning, inside and out. The multi-lingual staff could not have been more gracious and accommodating. The hotel is famous for its upscale restaurant, with many awards from gourmet organizations. We dined there twice, and indeed, every bite was amazing to taste -- and eye candy to behold! "Quiet" is the word that most comes to mind about the Auberge, although in truth there was a busy highway just beyond the trees -- the white noise did not bother us, but I did want to mention it. Also, you reach the property by a convoluted route through the narrow streets of Argeles village ... under the highway, under the railroad tracks, beyond the beautiful historic cemetery ... but in retrospect that was all part of the charm. Once you find La Gare (railroad station) there are signs leading the way to the Auberge. When you get there, it's worth it!

The hotel was very nice. Very clean and modern for a 3 stars hotel. The room was very nice, and the bathroom very clean. Overall - very nice. On the downside - there were some maintenance issues - the TV didn't work initially (although fixed the same day), the A/C behaved a little oddly at times, and the shower head sprayed a little to the sides - but all very minor things. Breakfast was standard french hotel - which means not amazing. For the type of resort this place is - Could be a little nicer. Overall - very nice, good for the price - right on the target of a midrange hotel.

Comfortable stay in mid June, so not so busy. Nice pool and sun deck, with ample shading for those with fairer skins.
Bedroom clean and tidy, with good aircon. Buffet breakfast adequate, but cheaper options available for those on budget. Private car-park and room-safe available both requiring 20 euro deposit each for keys.
