Le Castel de la Pique

Top choice hotel in Bagnères de Luchon

There’s a bit of storybook charm to this hotel, with its château corner-turrets and 19th-century façade. Once inside, the lovely rooms don't disappoint, with wood floors, mantelpieces and French windows opening onto decorative balconies: mountain views are practically universal. Owner Alain is a character, and a mine of local knowledge. All in all, it’s a bargain – especially with breakfast at €8.
