Lovely view, clean and comfortable room with a modern bathroom with huge bathtub, friendly owners and cute Labrador Retriever - what more could you want in a B&B? Moreover, the bread was excellent at breakfast, served on the terrace with its gorgeous view, and the apricot jam amazing. Accueil chaleureux, une vue superbe, chambre propre et parfait, chien adorable, et le pain et confiture pour le petit-dejeuner sur la terrasse est top!

We stayed here for two nights. This small hotel is spotless and stylishly furnished. The owners speak enough English that we had no problems with restaurant recommendations, etc. Bottles of local wines are available for purchase in the hotel.

The hotel is carved into the side of a mountain. A patio off the ground floor overlooks the pool on a lower level. We did not take advantage of the pool due to chilly weather. Breakfast is served on the patio. The coffee and croissants were delicious. The view was magnificent.

We were pleased with our room. The bed was very comfortable. There was sufficient storage for our clothes. The bathroom was roomy and clean with a good selection of toiletries. The owners can lend you a blow dryer if needed. The WiFi signal was strong.

I highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for one night as we toured some of the amazing sights in the area. This is a simple B&B with just the essentials, but a very good value especially since wifi, breakfast and parking were included. Rooms are clean and have a private bathroom.

The village is an excellent place to stay the night to visit the two incredible ruined chateaux perched on nearby hilltops, to admire the local scenery and to walk in the area.

This B&B seemed a bit pricey for what it offers out of season. When we arrived the place was empty, so we stretched our French quite a long way to contact the owner via the phone number displayed on the door. Our room was OK ; clean, reasonably comfortable. Breakfast was the French minimum, although a fruit bowl was provided when we asked for it. In high season there would be a pool available 'by invitation only'. First time I've come across that.

If you decide to stay here please ignore Google maps which will send you up a steep narrow street at the end of which you'll be faced with a physically impossible right turn. Instead drive up the main approach road, past the car parks, past the cinema, and bear right to fid the B&B. If they're in, the owners can direct you to their parking place.

Altogether this place seemed a lot more basic than other reviewers have made out, and we would have looked a bit harder for accommodation elsewhere in the village if we had known the full picture.

I enjoyed so much staying at L'écurie de Cucugnan for 3 nights. The hosts are very friendly and helpful, my room was very comfortable, but what makes this place unique is the view: and you can delight in it while you have breakfast on the terrace. Cucugnan's breads are also famous for their quality and the village has got an authentic feeling. You can even hike to the château cathare de Quéribus from the B and B.
I'll be back. What a nice place!

We spent a night at l'Ecurue de Cucugnan and had a room with a magnificent view of the entire valley off our large private balcony privee. The room and public area were spotlessly clean, and the internet was as fast as what we have at home.

Cucugnan is small town but a good choice for a peaceful night, as it also has several restaurants.

I generally agree with the comments of the previous review. We also didn't get a room with a view, and we did book ahead. But all the other rooms were occupied by French speakers, so maybe our "foreigner" status got us demoted! We also weren't offered any particular hospitality, like a glass of wine.

The b&b had a very nice looking pool, but in late May it didn't seem to be open yet for the season.

The room was quite comfortable, clean, and with ample historical charm. Breakfast was pretty "blah" -- just orange juice (the tasteless French stuff), coffee, bread and jam.

The town is very peaceful and pretty, with good, affordable restaurants. Very near several interesting Cathar castle ruins, which are very worthwhile. Not sure I'd want to stay more than a night, though, as there's not THAT much to do in the area.

There seemed to be several other nice b&bs in town, so I'm not sure this one is better than the others (we booked ahead on Rick Steves' recommendation -- not much in English about this town elsewhere). At 60 euros, though, it represented good value.

Pros: 71 euros if you stay more than 2 days. I liked the decor – not rustic. Clean and spacious room. Big, comfy bed. Clean sheets. Extra towels. Bathroom has enormous sink. Free parking. Room, Al Mouly, faced the street so can be noisy with locals talking with owner. Owner speaks Spanish. Free parking and breakfast. Breakfast was good - on the balcony with great views of the mountain and sufficient for me-not a big eater.
Pool small and available 'by invitation only'. [Owner's family use for themselves for BBQ, dinners and sunbathing.] Went for a quick dip. Felt a bit uncomfortable. Reason why I booked B&B - to use the pool.
Great location to visit the two châteaus: Quéribus and d’Aguilar. Village is very cute, “arreglado”. Go to the bakery next to the windmill – they make their own flour. Fabulous bakery!!! Pricey. We ate at l'Auberge de Cucugnan (not ideal for vegetarians) and l'Auberge du Vigneron (very good but pricey). And bought pottery from Benjamin Castellano.
Cons: Check-out 10 am. Shower with mildew. Shower head. Only cash. No place to hang toilet bag, towels, etc. 1 chair to put suitcase. Only 1 night table.

Never having heard of Cucugnan before, we still decided to have one night out of our French road trip here. We have not regretted it for a moment. The rooms are nice, clean and inviting, and the host - though he speaks little to no English and us having terrible French - was super helpful and welcoming. Breakfast was served on the terrace, overlooking the pool and the area. Cucugnan is a tiny little village, but boasts a couple nice restaurants, a pottery shop, and a quaint little grocery store. Not the place for a long vacation, but perfect for a night or two if you're in the mood to relax.

My wife and I had a wonderful time in Cucugnan thanks to the Ecurie. Our room had a spectacular view over the valley, was quite, modern as the owner had put in 21st century bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen in a very old building, clean, and comfortable. The owner put on quite a generous breakfast. We had the use of a modern kitchen if we had needed it (we didn't). There is a scenic swimming pool. The weather was a little too chilly for this when we were there. Cucugnan is surrounded by spectacular Cathar fortresses and wineries. The village itself is picturesque. I highly recommend this accommodation. The owner was notably cheerful and helpful.
