Gîte du Volcan

The last place to stay in the Volcano area, it is the easiest way to explore the area. It has a lush garden (given the surrounding flora), and offers some stunning views of the area. Accommodation options are basic - all bunk beds, but broken up into smaller rooms, so not a massive dorm, there are no plugs to charge phones and there didn't seem to be any wifi (phone reception was only Edge in either case). 

Their supper offering is quite good - 3 courses, served in a family style setting with long tables. The breakfast was basic - but served early to allow an early start to the day. If you are going to hike up the volcano, this is a good place to rest the day before.
