Reviews for Domaine de Capelongue
An exceptional hotel in a lovely area with an astonished view over the Luberon. The owner Edouard Loubet and his wife are very nice people and you are very well welcomed. The restaurant is wonderful and the rooms very confortable. Nice pool , nice terrases from where you can look at the Sunset. Very quiet and the surrondings are very pleasant. It is really an exceptional place never you 'll forget.

I'll start by saying that the property itself is truly stunning. The buildings are beautiful and overlook the lovely Bonnieux and the nearby valleys. That said, I'd advise that you not make the same mistake I did and be lured by the beautiful photos. The incompetent staff and argumentative owner made our visit unnecessarily stressful. In short, the management levied a number of unexpected charges, some of which was for food that the receptionist mistakenly told us twice was included in the price of our booking. The management admitted this was a mistake, but insisted on charging us anyway. When we asked about this, the owner suggested (at 10 pm) that we leave and "go sleep in nature." Needless to say, this approach to customer service was baffling. It seems I'm not the only guest to face the brunt of this arrogant and petty attitudeâ€“ for an example of how Ã‰douard responds to critiques, look no further than his argumentative response to the most recent review below. Finally it's worth noting that the facilities are poorly kept. The wifi connection did not work and the apartment smells like the septic system needs cleaning.
I had the misfortune of eating at this restaurant one evening. We were a group of six. Incidentally, I speak French fluently. The food and the service were horrible beyond words. The rudeness of the staff, the outrageously poor preparation of the food, the indescribable haughtiness of the manager in his sartorial splendor leave me profoundly perplexed how this restaurant continues to maintain an esteem from the Michelin guide service. Three things which I vow in the future: one of course is not to eat at this restaurant ever again; secondly there is a great deal of suspect about the reliability of the Michelin guide service, it's independence, and its accuracy; finally I will regard Michelin advice with concern in the future.

Restaurant much over-priced. I do not understand persistent high rating in both Michelin and Gault&Millau. This is the third time we gave Mr Loubet a try but he did not, again, live up to expectations. Hotel room in urgent need of refurbishment. Staff very kind but under-qualified.
We have stayed five times with Eduard Loubet since 1999. In July we went back for four days and stayed in the Pigeonnier room which is separate from the main building. We highly recommend the half board formula which allows you to gradually discover his entire menu. On this occasion I found the food to be better than ever before and the view from the swimming pool is still as stunning as it ever was (view on the back side of Bonnieux). To us this is, again, the best restaurant we ever visited. What hits your plate is undoubtfully 3 Michelin star quality (Eduard has two) and beats a few higher quoted restaurants, There is no doubt we will go back (life's too short).
