The title copied from another reviewer that sums it up perfectly. Physically the hotel has been restored to a very high standard, beautifully decorated with the bonus of local art on display. The hoteliers are friendly and full of information. We stayed for four days and did take the breakfast every day. This seems to be an issue for some reviewers, personally I have never thought of not taking breakfast in a hotel (rather than a hostel). It is true that it is a couple of euros more expensive than some, but the fresh fruit and yoghurt easily makes it worthwhile. We ate in one evening, and found the cooking to be of a very high standard. We tried three other restaurents in Collobriere all of which were good however Notre Dame compares very favourably both in quality and value. Collobrieres itself is a marvellous large village with several good restaurents, plenty of bars to help watch the world go by and good walks in the forested hills. A great centre, not too far from Aix-en-Provence for a day trip, although the road to Grimaud and St Tropez can be a bit hairy for some as another reviewer noted. Highly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Notre Dame ***. On the edge of cobbled Collobrières, with wonderful views of the Massif des Maures, is a 18th-century staging post, a delicious modern hotel. Its inspired creators, Nili and Olivier – émigrés from the worlds of fashion and wine – speak several languages, embrace all nationalities and love what they do. They have named each bedroom after a precious stone – saphire, jade, coral – and guests, on booking, are encouraged to pick the colour of their choice. Imagine cool floor tiles, glowing paintings, thick cream curtains, repro Louis XIV tables, bright mosaic’d showers and beautiful stone ceilings washed in white. The Pearl Suite has three windows and is full of light, and some rooms have divans that double up as child beds (families are welcomed with open arms). Outside are a lovely tranquil terrace and an eco-friendly pool, fenced and safe for children. As for the food, there are four different kinds of breakfast – from Scandinavian to continental – served until late, the best ingredients at dinner, and wines from the famous bio vineyards of Correns. What to discover? The palms and sands of Le Lavandou! ... more less
