We stayed over for one night on our way down to the Ardeche. We were travelling on our motorcycles and parked them outside overnight - it was very safe. The area is quiet and rural. Our room was excellent and had 2 large doubles and a large bathroom. We ate in the restaurant and it was first class and good...

We were en route to Camargue and stayed for just one night. I grid and Tim were very welcoming. The room was lovely and we enjoyed the evening meal. Might be helpful to mention that the Auberge is not actually directly in Auzelles. Our GPS took us to the village but the hotel is actually about a mile outside.

This is a restaurant with rooms (or vice versa), but I can only review the restaurant as we were staying with friends nearby and we came to eat here. The building is in a pleasant spot by the river in the tiny village of Auzelles. It is a small restaurant, with not many tables, and a super relaxed atmosphere. It...

Our "Whisky Bar" is stocked with a large selection of high quality beers, spirits and an impressive selection of Single Malt Whisky. The Auberge is ideal for family holidays, romantic breaks, a convenient stop-over en-route through France, or as great a base to explore this area which is a Mecca for Walkers, Motorbikers, Cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts.
