The driving force behind La Lozerette, Cocures, is the charming Pierrette Agulhon, the third generation of her family to own and run it. Her grandmother opened the house as an auberge, and clearly passed her hotel-keeping skills on to her granddaughter, who manages La Lozerette with calm efficiency, helped by an able, friendly staff. Although it's on a fairly busy road (by day) on the historic route taken by Robert Louis Stevenson and his donkey Modestine, the wild mountainous landscape of the Cévennes National Park surrounds it, with signs of cultivation vineyards and orchards dotted here and there. The best of the views are from the large, wood-floored bedrooms. Painted in spring colours, with co-ordinating floral, checked or striped fabric, they are never fussy, but clean-cut and fresh-looking.
  Several downstairs rooms have been knocked together to make the large dining room, the heart of the hotel, which, with its wood-panelled ceiling, cane chairs and cheerful yellow curtains, is cosy despite its size. The menu is regional you might find foie-gras de canard,chataignes, charcuterie de pays, river trout or ceps on the menu and so highly regarded that it keeps the restaurant almost permanently full. Leave your choice of wines to Pierrette, who in addition to her other talents is a qualified sommelier.
