La Cardinale - Holiday & weekend hotel in Le Pouzin

Quartier Serre Petou - Le Pouzin

Situated in southern France in the unique region of Ardeche, La Cardinale Hotel-Restaurant is set on 65 acres of verdant grounds overlooking the Rhone valley and distant mountains.

This lovely area, where fields are full of fruit, lavender, sun-flowers and vineyards, plays host to an authentic 17th-century Provencal farmhouse, now a wonderful 4-star Hotel-Restaurant. Expect warm and friendly service, charming guestrooms and delicious cuisine.

The comfortable guestrooms each have their own terrace and are equipped with modern en suite facilities. Wi-Fi internet access is available and is free of charge.

In the bright and cosy restaurant, savour cuisine that reflects the sunny climate of the Rhone Valley. All of the dishes are inspired by local ingredients and produce.

For a relaxing moment, sit alongside a semi-Olympic swimming pool surrounded by a beautifully landscaped yard.
