“Total relaxation and perfect hosts”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Paul and Vincent run a perfect boutique hotel. The views from the hotel are wonderful and the sunsets from the restaurant terrace stunning. Food is simple, well cooked and the wine list good. The whole equipe (housekeeping, kitchen) make you feel welcome but in a relaxed not intrusive way. The best place I know to relax and chill out.

Our first visit to Ile du Levant which turned out to be a real joy. the hotel turned out to be a highlight of the stay with a lovely pool, and a sunny terrace with a spectacular westward view over the Med. We ended up eating dinner 3 of the 4 nights at the hotel, having found it to be one of the best restaurants on the island and with a lovely view. Paul provides a level of personalized service that few 5 star hotels could match. A lovely and relaxing stay.

Perfect chilled out weeks stay at this wonderful little hotel on this very unique island. Paul and Vincent are wonderful caring and attentive hosts - nothing was too much trouble. Great pool and wonderful sunsets on the terrace overlooking the blue sea. Great quality food and wines - table d'hotel, dinner and lunch, wonderful breakfast with homemade cakes, pastries, excellent local homemade jams and Vincent's yogurts. Comfortable, air conditioned rooms in wonderful rustic and colourful grounds. Room perfectly cleaned every day with clean towels every day, The hotel offers a suberb environment for naturism in a select and safe setting - whether first time experience or not - we met both types of couples who were totally comfortable. Obviously there are obligatory areas for naturism and not (at dinner). Totally recommended 100%.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground are adjacent to the pool terrace. 1st Floor rooms have a separate terrace overlo...

We have actually stayed here twice - once about ten years ago, then more recently this last summer, since the new management took over and renovated the place. Fabulous!

The biggest improvement was the addition of air-conditioning; not because we so much mind the heat (though it can be very still on at night in July or August) but to control the mosquitoes, which can be quite tenacious once the sun goes down. Problem solved.

The rooms are nicely appointed, and the pool area is a small slice of heaven. They are located only a short walk off the central square (where minimal clothing is required), but you can turn the other direction our the front door and make you way down through the village to the sea without ever bothering to cover up!

The new owners, indeed, speak excellent English and run the restaurant on the adjoining terrace as well. It's a beautiful place on a unique little island. Well worth the trouble to get there, and in our opinion, this is the best place to stay while you're there!

My wife and I stayed for two nights in September on the Ile du Levant. Paul and Vincent were perfect hosts - and fortunately spoke English since my French is so poor!

The room was attractive, with a recent paint job and attractive art. Even better, it really did overlook the sea! We preferred the delightful pool (to the minute beach) and enjoyed many glasses of Pastis in the sun!

Dinner was quite good and really does have a lovely view of the sunset dipping into the ocean. Would absolutely stay again!

A week at the hotel at the end of August gave us a great first experience of this unique island as the season came to an end. A very comfortable room (with necessary air conditioning) gave access to a shared balcony with views over the bay and direct access to the swimming pool and sun loungers. The relaxed atmosphere of Ile du Levant continued in the hotel with great hospitality from Paul and Vincent. The island (as elsewhere in France) is not great for vegetarians but there was always something on the menu to choose. The fantastic sunsets from the restaurant terrace provided a visual highlight at the end of perfect days. Fair skinned visitors need to go prepared to protect themselves from insect bites so they can enjoy the freedom to be nude on most of the island. The only reliable transfers from Toulon-Hyeres airport seem to be taxis (45 Euros) We are already planning our next trip.
