Cucugnan is a small and delightful village about 45 minutes drive north of Perpigan Airport and located close to the amazing Cathar castles of Peyrepetuse and Queribus. Auberge de Cucugnan is located right in the heart of the village. The rooms are quite small, but the welcome is friendly and helpful. The building itself has a huge amount of charm, with some parts appearing to be dug out of the rock of the small hill on which the village/hotel stands. The restaurant is certainly worth a visit.

Have stayed here in years past and it was a pleasure to return...we had no idea that the management/owners had changed just 3 weeks ago so our 2 night stay was always going to be interesting...as it turned out, the husband and wife team plus staff could not have been more helpful & friendly and therefore the odd minor issue was never a problem !
From serving drinks outside to running the restaurant,we were more than happy..the rooms are scheduled for some updates but nevertheless were comfortable and had all the facilities required...it will be good to go back again in due course just to see what new ideas the new owners introduce after they settle in...

Our group had a set menu, first a plate of charcuterie and then an "omelette" with potatoes and vegetables. It wasn't truly an omelette, which would have had to be made separately for each person. It was eggs and mushrooms, baked and then cut in squares. It was very tasty but not delicate like an omelette. The dessert was a delicious berry and cheese pie.

We identified this small hotel and booked two nights there using the Logis de France website. We had visited Cucugnan in the past and knew it to be a fascinating village with two wonderful Cathar castles (Peyrepertuse and Queribus) very close by.

But the Auberge was a disappointment. We did not experience the friendly welcome noted by the previous reviewer. In fact we didn't get much of a welcome at all. We arrived at Cucugnan at about 5.30 in the afternoon and encountered the first problem that the Auberge was in a one-way street so narrow that parking anywhere near it caused one's car to block the entire road. The obvious main entrance to the hotel was completely closed and locked and there was no sign of life. We were unsure what to do next (I was contemplating calling the hotel phone number on my mobile) when my wife noticed a small sign pointing back down the street, indicating that we should ring a bell by a side gate further down the hill. We found this and rang the bell; there was no response. We rang it repeatedly without any response. We were about to give up (after, oh, five minutes at least) when suddenly an upstairs window was flung open, a man leaned out and rather gruffly asked what we wanted. For some reason this reminded me of a scene from an opera, but I can't remember which one!

We explained about our booking and he said he would come down, rather grumpily we thought! After several minutes he appeared and, to be fair, he carried both our heavy cases up the steep stone steps at the side of the hotel, through a side door to a small double room at the front of the building.

We enquired about the time for dinner and he informed us rather curtly that the restaurant was closed that evening. I asked where we could eat and he said there were two other places to eat in Cucugnan - the Vigneron and La Table du Cure. All three places are in the Guide Michelin by the way and are Logis de France, and both current guides indicate the Auberge restaurant as open on the evening in question. We chose the Auberge because we thought it looked nice on the LdF website.

The man made no offer to help make a booking for us, and no apology for the Auberge being shut. We actually wondered if we were even expected there, and we don't know to this day whether this was the problem in that our booking had not transferred properly from LdF to the Auberge, or whether this was in fact a typical "welcome". We also discovered that the hotel parking was some way away on the edge of the village.

When I called the Vigneron they told me their restaurant was full that evening. Fortunately La Table du Cure could accommodate us but not until 9pm, later than we wanted - but we had no other realistic choice. Indeed it turned out we were very lucky as when we arrived at La Table du Cure the proprietor said that we had been his last feasible booking; this was certainly true as he turned several other people away. However we had a really excellent meal there and the proprietor's attitude could not have been more different from the man at the Auberge. Noting that La Table du Cure has accommodation (but only two rooms) we both agreed that if we ever wanted to stay in Cucugnan in future, that is where we would choose (it's also by far the cheapest of the three places).

I had been careful to check at L'Auberge de Cucugnan that the restaurant would be open on our second evening there - they said it would, and so I booked a table for two at 8pm.

When we arrived in the restaurant on the dot of 8pm the following evening (you can get there from the rooms without going out of the building though the way isn't immediately obvious), it was clear to us at once that every table was occupied and people were still on their starters. Undaunted we reminded the staff of our booking and mild panic ensued. Would this lead to a second meal at La Table du Cure I wondered! But they found us a table on a dark , barely lit landing at the top of the stairs, overlooking some of the diners beneath. I suppose it could have been considered romantic, given the minimal lighting, but it was obvious that it was an area not supposed to be in use, and it was completely lacking in atmosphere, unlike the proper restaurant area which had a pleasant buzz. Surprisingly, the service to our lofty perch was good; we didn't get forgotten as I had feared. I think they were genuinely embarrassed by what had happened. All the same their attitude to us was very "matter-of-fact" throughout. I speak fairly good French and I detected no hint of an apology. The food was very good and reasonably priced at 90 euros including wine. It was simple, appetising stuff, with good sauces, well prepared and cooked.

Our room although small and functional was clean and the bed was comfortable - the bathroom was small like the bedroom but it too was spotlessly clean. At 61 euros per night (for 2) including breakfast, it's certainly not expensive for what you get.

The fact that the room was basically OK and the food was good (on the one night we could eat it) saved this place from a rating of "terrible". Our experience seems so different from that of the previous reviewer, one wonders if the hotel was under temporary management when we stayed, or perhaps has changed hands.

I'm afraid we wouldn't stay here again.

We booked a room with a shower - no shower curtain. Room was tiny and cramped with a window facing on an air shaft - very disappointing - one night was enough. AC didn't work. There were only 3 rooms with a view and they were given to guests who booked for longer stays. It was a beautiful star lit night and we couldn't enjoy any view from our room!

We arrived in a Cucugnan on a Monday afternoon out of season without having made any reservations. The village appeared moribund and the Auberge deserted. When we rang the bell at the gate as directed, Madame's head appeared from an upstairs window. She looked exhausted but was welcoming and friendly. We were shown immediately to two delightful rooms - not particularly large but entirely fit for purpose - spotlessly clean with comfortable beds and well equipped modern bathrooms. Our night's stay was quiet, restful and entirely comfortable.

We ate in the auberge restaurant and chose the cheapest menu. The service was efficient, warm and friendly and the food entirely delicious. The food was straightforward and simple, tasty and among the best meals we have had all year. The pintade cooked in the local Maury wine was outstandingly good

All four of us live for part of the year in France so are well used to the different standards of accommodation and cuisine that are available. We also use Logis de France hotels on a regular basis. We all felt that both the food and accomodation at the Auberge de Cucugnan represented fantastic value for money. I have never bothered to write a review before but felt our experience in Cucugnan was so entirely positive that it deserved it!

Our experience was almost exactly the same as Northerner in 2007. We also arrived at about 5.30 in the afternoon, with a booking which I had personally made by telephone with the hotel two weeks previously. We walked up to the hotel from the lower town and found the place entirely locked up. I phoned the hotel number and also had the response of the owner calling me out of the upstairs window. He was efficient, if not warm, in his welcome. We told him that we would have breakfast the following morning but that we had not yet decided whether we would eat there that night. Our friends later spoke to him and the kitchen staff about their menu and then decided that they would prefer to eat at the Auberge de Vigneron in the same village. Unfortunately, they apparently didn't make this clear to the owner, and so when we returned to the hotel later that night, we were told that they had reserved a place for us and had been disappointed that we didn't turn up. This, inevitably led the owner to conclude that we didn't want breakfast, and so there was more unpleasantness the following morning. The mesentente about the evening meal was probably the fault of our friends, but throughout our stay, we found the owner gruff, grudging and unavailable. Thus, when we arrived, and were in our rooms, I tried to use the advertised free internet access, but found that I needed a password, and that there just wasn't anyone around to ask about this, or indeed, anything else. The layout of the hotel, where you have to leave your room, go out into the street and then re-enter to find anyone in the restaurant, means that communication with the staff is non-existent, unless you are there just before the restaurant opens.
By contrast, the Auberge de Vigneron was warm welcoming and very pleasant for an evening meal.

With the remnants of our tour group, we had lunch here. My wife and I started with a large salad that included a piece of toasted bread with two pieces of toasted brie on top. The salad also had pieces of tomato and 2 olives. Our entree was a large mushroom omelette with vegetables and scalloped potatoes. The dessert was what I would call a wonderfully unhealthful piece of cheesecake with whipped cream. Great-tasting meal. Because we just had lunch here, I can't say anything helpful about the hotel.

We chanced on this Auberge after climbing the Cathar Castle of Querebus and needing a drink and sustenance. Madame provided both in a really friendly manner and the food and wine were good quality and value - just right for lunch.

My daughter and I stayed three nights in this hotel which we found by chance. We wanted to stay in the Pyrenees but not too far from the coast. An excellent choice in all respects! This is a small medieval town and the hotel building goes back hundreds of years but the hotel is thoroughly modernized. If you are looking for a five-star hotel close to a McDonald's this is not it. But for location, cleanliness, medieval charm, value for your money, etc. you cannot go wrong. This is definitely not a magnet of US tourism and some fluency in French really adds to the quality of the stay. However, you can get by with just English. And there are so many really interesting things to experience in the area including wineries, medieval castles, hiking etc. I definitely recommend the town and the hotel for those wishing to experience a side of France that except in isolated regions like this disappeared 25 years or more ago. One tip though. The streets were laid out 1000 years before cars came along. They are narrow. Small to even medium cars are fine but a large car could cause problems.
