La Desirade is a typical French two star hotel situated in a sleepy French village in beautiful surroundings yet a short hop from the main Autoroute du Soleil on the way to the Sth of France. We enjoyed a relaxing overnight stop with dinner served on the garden - delightful. It has lots of character and a friendy atmosphere. It was clean and provided the rickety charm some of us like with French country hotels. It's definitely a great stopover hotel and you could stay for longer too - it has a recently installed swimming pool making it a good long weekend place to stay. Definitely recommended!

Located in an old country house with a nice walled-in garden, gravel driveway and very nice swimming pool, this is the perfect stop-over for 1-2 nights, if you are travelling the countryside. The service is very friendly, efficient and – more importantly – very uncomplicated. And this is important when travelling with kids and there were more kids than adults when we stayed. The hotel is run by a family and this renders it a very cozy place to stay. Now, folks, this is a two star hotel with limited manpower, so do not expect a huge wine list or an extensive choice of food items. But what is on offer is good, down-to-earth country fare. Of course not high end French cuisine as was stated in other reviews, but we ate there twice and were satisfied. Breakfast is taken in two rooms downstairs; fresh baguette, orange juice, coffee/chocolate/tea, etc.
We had the family suite ‘Rose/Jaune’, which consists of two double bedrooms connected with a bathroom. The shower is a bathroom maker’s nightmare, but the suite is otherwise great and airy.
Great stay, we enjoyed it and will go back there if we are in the area again.

Room Tip: For families, try the 'Rose/Jaune'. It is a suite (two double rooms), connected with a bathroom.

Lovely, airy house set in a small vineyard, with plenty of parking on a gravelled and grass space. Interior walls covered in brightly-coloured fabric.

Large, very quiet room (we were in Bleu), overlooking the vineyard (and a massive ginger cat), with a very small but perfectly formed shower-room (hairdryer and some basic toiletries). Bed was on a downward slope to the head-end. The room would benefit from a bottle / carafe of drinking water - complimentary or otherwise, just nice to have the choice.

Breakfast - orange juice (not freshly squeezed), good coffee and slightly plastic croissants (in France? Really!). A big bowl of cherries was presented on the Sunday (the local trees are groaning with them in May / June), which was a pleasure.

Biggest let-down was the evening meal on the first of our two nights - would describe it as catering to what non-French visitors would expect French food to be. Plenty of it, but somewhat heavy and uninspired, served in a nice room, but with that kind of quiet whispery atmosphere where no-one really wants to be overheard. Menus at 19€ or 24€ for three or four courses - so very reasonable.

Very limited wine list (maybe 8-10 wines), disappointing for one of the world's greatest wine-growing areas. We chose the 24€ Saint-Joseph which was very average for the quality of the wine in the bottle.

It's still a nice place to stay - just drive up to say, the Bateau d'Emile in Serrières, for your meal - stunning cooking served under a honeysuckle canopy, with a great wine list.
