Hôtel Restaurant Bargeton
This is a genuinely friendly and charming little hotel in the tiny village of Cubières. Ideal for a real taste of ‘La France profonde’. There is a very real sense of ‘getting away from it all’ here, although the accommodation is very comfortable and the food excellent.
Cubières really is a tiny, one horse village. Well, actually, the horse is a donkey, and can be seen roaming freely through the quiet streets and enjoying a fine meal courtesy of the villagers’ gardens! You can’t miss the hotel here, it’s the only one in the village and is also the only bar and restaurant. It’s a really friendly place and M Massador and his family will always find time for a chat. The bedrooms have all been refurbished and are modern and comfortable. There’s not much to explore in Cubières. There’s a baker and butcher, also owned by the Massador family. There’s also a pretty church and, of course, outstanding country on all sides.
We arrived at the hotel after the walk from Villefort and really enjoyed a couple of ice cold beers on the little terrace in front of the hotel. A great spot to watch the world go by! Although Cubières is the archetypal sleepy village, the food here belongs to the premier league. We were quite surprised to come across such a comfortable stylish restaurant with such fine food in so quiet a village. Monsieur Massador also provided the best picnic of our trip for the walk to Pont de Montvert, half a baguette stuffed with Roquefort and some delicious fresh nectarines.
