Beautiful hotel, surrounded by a big garden and an industrial park. Once trough the gate you are in a different world. Spacious rooms with wifi and bathrobes, nespresso machine and slippers. Pool towels for free. Pool area needs a bit of refurbishment. Every day the reception offers a drink to the guests, which is very nice. The restaurant is very... More

This is a great hotel. The setting us beautiful , the staff is very nice and hospitable and the food is exceptional. We really enjoyed staying here and it is a good base from which to explore Provence. There are a lot of very nice excursions to do during the day and then you can hang out by the pool.... More

Inventive menu as one expects for a Michelin star chef, but the acid and sweet coating on the fois gras paired with far too strong cress puree totally overwhelmed the dish causing many to just eat the fois gras. The main course of fish with bouillabaisse was good but minuscule with some plates barely having enough for one good mouthful.... More

We thought we had got to the wrong area as this supposed 'chateau' was in an a full blown industrial estate, horrible area off the motorway - a gate hidden amongst the industrial units. A horrible basic room, dirty pool and chairs, run down gardens, even pots on terrace where clients had very very expensive dinner had dead plants in... More

A blunder to begin with caused by the booking website Agoda. I booked for 3 adults however the hotel had been unable to contact me given Agoda had not provided any contact details. Contacting Agoda was hopeless with their customer service - so we were stuck, with paid hotel room and could not get a refund nor could contact Agoda.... More

Beautiful Chateau; very practical, as it is near the Autoroute. The menu was great, the service just ok ..they did their best I guess, but you feel like one of many clients... ; I'm just comparing to so many other 1 star Michelin where you get better personalized and caring service ... However, like always we asked the Sommelier to... More

The hotel's exterior and parking grounds give the impression that this hotel is quite majestic. Once you enter the building you will be greeted by some lovely staff who speak excellent English. Sadly, that is where my good comments come to an end. Before we unloaded our luggages, we were escorted to our bedrooms. The path to the bedroom was... More

We stopped for the night after a long plane/train trip. The first view of the hotel along the allée is beautiful, and the interior is just as lovely. The warm welcome at reception--they called me by name when I walked in--was relaxing and comforting. Our bags were swept up and carried upstairs to our room, which was cozy, large and... More

We stayed here in late June 2015 and loved it. The room was comfortable and quiet, overlooking the back terrace. We have read some negative reviews of this hotel because of its location: it is true that to reach the chateau you have to drive through a light industrial or commercial estate, but as soon as you drive through the...
