Carasol Hôtel

Sunlight on the Roussillon Plain

A charming and cozy hotel with fine dining

Welcome to the Cara-Sol

« Facing the sun » in Catalan, fully South-oriented and sun bathing in the warm lights of the Pyrénées Orientales, The Cara-Sol looms over the roman walls of the antic city of Helenae, Elne today. His prevailing location tells about centuries of History. Overlooking the Alberes moutains, the Mount Canigou, the shores of the tech... glimmering in the changing seasonal colors and enhanced by glorious sunsets. The old stones of our building shelter a modern and cozy interior. Ideally located, slightly away from the hustle bustle of the coast, but near the long and sandy beaches of Saint Cyprien and Canet and close to major cultural site of the area, the Cara-Sol is a haven of peace and delight.

« Set high in the old citadel, within walking distance to the cathedral, it benefits from fantastic views of the Canigou mountain and Roussillon plain »

Our comfortable rooms and panoramic view

The hotel Cara-Sol classified « Logis Cozy » offers high level of accommodation with 15 fully equipped modern air-conditioned rooms with fantastic views.


Our Restaurant

« Facing the sun » the CARA-SOL carries you away in a reverie between the majestic Canigou, our beautiful catalan land and our extended walks of life. Our chef prepares a fine traditional cuisine, with a few fun twists of his own, sourced by local producers and based on local and fresh ingredients. We do everything fresh and homemade.

In a laid back atmosphere with friendly waitering, our modern restaurant can take about 60 persons. Our panoramic view terrace has been elected one of the most beautiful terrace of the Pyrénées Orientales. Would it a pity to miss it!
