Le Carré d'Alethius
Charmes-sur-Rhône, Rhône-Alpes






Stéphanie & Olivier Samin

« Go for a colourful excursion both on the plates in the restaurant and in the rooms of this village hotel »

Description of the establishment

In 2010, Olivier and his wife Stéphanie set their hearts on restoring the soul of a small hotel-restaurant in the so fittingly named village of Charmes-sur-Rhône. The hotel’s new image pays tribute to a Roman senator whose sarcophagus sits on the town hall square. The fresh colours and shades with the emphasis on modern, airy decor both in the restaurant and the rooms, gives the whole place a feeling of elegance and warmth. This is the setting where Olivier conjures up his inventive, sophisticated cuisine. The young chef skilfully juggles flavours, textures and colours and invites his guests to savour his culinary delights that move with the seasons. They feature locally sourced ingredients that are in harmony with the truly remarkable wines of the Rhône valley. Nine quiet, colourfully adorned rooms await guests after an eventful day.

This was a lovely hotel in beautiful surroundings. The only problem was the restaurant closed on a Monday night but the reception booked a lovely alternative restaurant for us all. Private secure parking

Très bonne adresse
4.4
Excellente adresse, le dîner était très bon : cuisine plutôt inventive avec des produits de qualité. Rien à dire sur la chambre qui était parfaite. Je recommande vivement cet hôtel même si nous n'avons pas pu recharger notre voiture électrique pendant la nuit car il n'y a pas de prise sur le parking. C'est un détail et cela peut peut être changer.

Very nice small hotel
4.7
Very nice small hotel to stay in. Rooms are nice and clean (the one with terrasse are located in the patio of hotel) and the amenities are great. You can even ask for room service from the restaurant which offers very good dishes (I had fresh fish on the first night and duck filet the second). I believe they even should develop the room service option as their food is so good. It was very nice for me as I was travelling alone and hence not really in the mood for eating alone in the restaurant. Chef and reception team are very helpful and smiling. Also the value for money here is perfect : 108 € for one night+ dinner in a room with terrasse !

Good room but poor hospitality
4.5
The only thing wrong was that we were unable to dine at the hotel's restaurant as it was booked out! How does that work for a 'hospitality' provider? There is nowhere else to dine within 3 km of the place. Where did the hosts expect us to eat? 3 km down the road, we got the last table. Not what you want after a day of driving and not what you expect from a hospitality provider, not even the offer of room service or a salad on our balcony. There are other villages and other options where you won't come a poor last after restaurant clients. This was even more annoying as we'd emailed asking for a restaurant reservation but had no reply.
