Certificate of Excellence
An 18th-century Provencal mansion in beautiful floral gardens, Hotel Le Pigonnet is a secluded hotel just outside the centre of Aix-en-Provence. Promising a peaceful Eden with a grand gated entrance and classic facade framed by elegant Genoese-style towers, it offers a gourmet restaurant, a club-like bar and a Moroccan-styled lounge. The crackle of logs or the songs of cicadas provide the seasonal soundtrack by the fire or on the summer terraces with views over the garden to Mount Sainte Victoire. Each individually-styled room at Hotel Le Pigonnet is rich in Provencal decor and furnishings and has a warm, homely ambience. Hide away in one of Hotel Le Pigonnet's garden nooks on a comfy chair and soak up the country views. Cool off in the pool or relax in a shady area complete with an attractive stone statue. Enjoy bistronomic dining in the restaurant where the cuisine is modern French.

This hotel feels like coming home. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. Unbelievable garden where you can sit for hours, enjoying life. Excellent restaurant, nice bar with staff who know what to advice. Aix centre is at 12 minutes walking. Centre of the town is beautiful.

We cannot express how wonderful this hotel is. We stayed for one week in August as a family of three (mom, dad, daughter) and loved everything about it. Location: A quick 5-10 minute walk into the main part of Aix. Yet, you have parking at the hotel, making this an ideal

The hotel is pretty, but not great. Our deluxe room did not have a bathtub and the shower stall was open so the bathroom was always foggy and cold as there was neither a heater or an extractor fan. The decor was okay - curtains looked like they were run up by someone in a hurry.

Super friendly staff, great facilities, easy walk to Cours Mirabeau, would definitely stay again and recommend to others. We did not get to enjoy the gardens as our visit was in winter, but I imagine it would be even more lovely in the spring/summer.

We were interested in seeing the mountain and gardens painted by Cezanne. We requested and were given a deluxe room with a terrace. Room 40. It was clean, the bathroom was modern, the view from the bathroom window was perfect. The maid service was prompt and courteous. Everyone
