Just got back from a short stay at this lovely little hotel half way up the Port Du Bales Climb (chain gate). Although the weather was dreadful this is a perfect base for a cycling trip. Although we drove to the Tourmalet, there is a vast selection of mountains to ascend from the town of Luchon a descent away. The hotel is clean, friendly with bike storage. The rooms are on the small side but what we expected. The lounge area, bar and restaurant were lovely with the food top notch. I would recommend this hotel.

We returned for a 7-day stay at Le Sapin Fleuri and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The third-generation hotel owners are gracious, charming, and exceedingly kind and thoughtful.

The hotel is located in the pastoral village of Bourg d’Oueil, where it feels as if the village hasn’t changed much in several hundred years. Aside from sheep farming, the hotel is the only commercial enterprise in town. (The local sheep appear on the hotel’s menu and are delicious!) It’s a bucolic setting that is much appreciated for its tranquility. The hotel is ideally situated for walkers and hikers as well as for bicyclists (one of the Tour de France cols, the Porte de Bayles, is in front of the hotel), motorists, and motorcycle enthusiasts. Mountain bikers will definitely appreciate the many nearby trails.

The rooms are small but recently renovated and very clean. We didn’t mind the room’s snugness because we were outside for the entire day. The hotel also has a salon which is decorated in a mountain-chalet style---the salon had books, magazines, board games, and lots of tourist literature, including the hotel owner’s own guide to local walks! It was a nice place to have a cup of coffee, as were the small bar and outside terrace.

We thought the food had improved from the previous year---the owner/chef serves a set 4-course menu each evening (and he’s willing to modifying dishes if you do not want what he offers.) (A menu with a variety of dishes is offered only at lunch.) For dinner, soup was the first course, and his garbure (a regional soup) was outstanding! Fish, including the local trout, was often served as a second course. It, too, was delicious. The third course was usually lamb, duck, or beef---and all were well prepared and enjoyable. We really appreciated his desserts, and were amazed he spent so much time preparing our meals at the start of the season when there were few tourists around. He even lit a fire in the restaurant’s fireplace and then placed us next to the fire so we wouldn’t be cold---he was that thoughtful!

Breakfast was always substantial and filling---clearly the chef was used to feeding hungry bicyclists and hikers. And his “cold meal” picnic lunches had to be seen to be believed. We ended up ordering only one per day, rather than two, because we couldn’t eat everything!

If you are looking for an oasis of calm and tranquility with excellent regional food, this Logis de France is the place to stay. The price is very reasonable for the value received. We’ve stayed here twice and will most likely return.

This family-run hotel makes an excellent base for hiking. It's in a small village at the end of a road out of Luchon. (The road does go onward, but only as a narrow single lane up to and through the Porte de Bayles (sometimes on the Tour de France route). There are absolutely no services in the village. Instead, you will find wonderful peace, calm, and tranquility. We spent an entire week enjoying all of the nearby scenery and hikes.

The hotel owners are warm and welcoming, helping with suggestions for hikes. The hotel rooms are a bit on the small side, but perfectly adequate. The bathroom was exceptionally clean and recently renovated. The hotel decor was "mountain-chalet" which fit in lovely with the surroundings.

Although the restaurant breakfast selection did not vary over 7 days, it was substantial enough for hikers, with plenty of fruit, juice, and bread. The owner/chef packed a "cold meal" each day for a picnic lunch. The lunch selection was wonderful! We made the mistake of ordering cold meals for 2 people on the first day, but we were given so much food we could not eat it all, so we ordered only 1 meal for 2 people for the remaining 6 days. Dinner offered a set menu of 4 dishes, with no selection. In all cases, the dishes were well prepared, tasty, and enjoyable, if not elaborate. The soups and fish were always a treat! When a dish didn't appeal to us, the chef was happy to offer a substitute---all we had to do was ask. We enjoyed watching the flock of sheep outside the restaurant windows as they moved around each day. The wine list was fine, with some excellent local wines.

Wifi in the room was spotty, but the wifi in the lounge and restaurant was excellent.

I highly recommend this hotel and restaurant if you want to get away for a few days/week and hike or bike.

Here we were staying right in the middle of a great hiking area, from the hotel we made a hike to 2000 m above sea level with fantastic views dowb the valley. You are right in the middle of the little village. Buses from Luchon with hikers arrive in the morning, much better to stay right here where the paths start.
The food is excellent, far above our expectations at such a remote place and the lunch box in the same style. The bathrooms are new and clean. If you like to stay in a picturesque and quiet place with traditional good food this te place!

This hotel is literally on a road to nowhere-you can get through, just but mostly you go up and come back down. However, it's worth the detour. On arrival, we'd booked with special diet note...we were asked if we'd like to eat in the evening or not. We were shown the menu and options were discussed to replace what I couldn't eat with what I could. The owner was charm herself and made me feel really at ease even though they had to adapt 3 of the 4 courses. The room was a bit small, but the shower room was excellent and the free wifi was an added (unexpected) bonus. My connection did keep dropping but my husband's was fine. Food was nourishing, generous and like stepping back in time to "real France". The owner was most upset when a small mistake was made with my food (which was immediately rectified without a problem). In the morning substitutes I had asked for were provided and I was asked if I would like to take the unused protions away because they would not have any call to use them so if I could use them it'd dave wastage. Very friendly and helpful.
