Le Vieux Cep is a well-appointed hotel in the charming village of Cilaos which is located in the middle of Reunion on an inland plateau. It is near the Cirque de Cilaos, one of the famous crater valleys, with stunning views of the 3069m Piton des Neiges (Snow Peak), the island's highest mountain. Sample Creole cuisine at the ambient restaurant and enjoy live music at the piano bar. Wallow in the heated swimming pool after a day of hiking and soothe yourself in the sauna or spa with a massage treatment.
Accommodation comprises two traditional Creole houses which comprise 45 rooms, each with a bathroom, TV, telephone and heating. Recline on your private balcony which provides panoramic vistas of the surrounding mountains and valleys. Adventure enthusiasts can choose from an array of activities such as hiking into the craters, abseiling down waterfalls, offroad mountain biking or something more sedate like boules, billard and table tennis.
Le Vieux Cep is ideally located to explore this stunning region. Cilaos itself is a charming village with its colourful streets and locally produced wines, set at the foot of the mighty Piton des Neiges. This 3069m volcanic peak is surrounded by three crater valleys, and you can hike to Cirque de Cilaos, once a mighty volcano itself. You can also visit Piton de La Fournaise, the island's monstrous active volcano which erupted as recently as 2007. And after all that exercise, relax at the Irene Accot Thermal Center or the spa and sauna at Le Vieux Cep!
