Beautiful grounds just outside the village where you can enjoy the nice pool and quiet charm of the gorgeous building. The owner was very kind and always ready to help. We had a very nice room overlooking the garden and pool, it was decorated with taste and in the spirit of the region.

We booked a room for 2 nights at La Sommellerie because, with French drink driving regulations being so stringent, we wanted a hotel that had a restaurant. We arrived to be told that the restaurant is closed on Sunday and Monday evenings. As the hotel is a couple of miles outside Chateauneuf-du Pape that immediately posed a problem - there... More

Don't get fooled by the photos of this place like I did. There is new management, and they are extremely rude, inhospitable, and go so far as shouting at their guests. We were treated like unwelcome house guests. Rooms are shabby, small, and not worth the money. Seriously, stay someplace else.
