Lou Calen

The flame of Lou Calen (“oil lamp” in Provençal) is shining again in Cotignac. After more than 20 years of closure, the iconic hotel-restaurant created by Huguette Caren in the early 1970s has been reborn today as an eco-responsible hotel estate centred around wellbeing of people within nature. In July 2024 this historic hotel will finally open all its rooms to become the place it was always meant to be! Book your stay now and discover this place steeped in history that combines tradition and modernity.
