“Piece of Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

What a great stay! We were on cycling trip with escapecycletours and could not
recommend more highly both the hotel and the cycling tour - our own "Tour de France".
Liz and Claudia made sure that our every need was catered for.
Programme due to inclement weather was extremely flexible and nothing was too much trouble.
The staff at Les Magnolias made us feel like part of the family! The meals produced by Eve and Michelle were varied and delicious. The rest of the staff were willing to help and advise us at any time. The rooms were comfortable with everything one needed.
The surroundings were beautiful and the hotel well maintained.
It is definitely one of those places that you would not hesitate to recommend or to return for another visit.

Room Tip: Our room opened onto courtyard which was good for us.

We wanted a cycling holiday and it was such an idyllic spot to do so. Claudia the owner of the hotel was so charming and gave us different routes to follow which we thoroughly enjoyed. Beautiful country side and gorgeous villages! Coming back to the hotel at night we were welcomed with absolutely delicious food and comfy rooms. Claudia is a very gracious hostess and runs an excellent hotel with very high standards. Her bicycles were of a very good quality too and was "on call" when ever we needed her. She also took us to some very interesting places e.g. Rocquefort village and really gave us an unforgettable holiday! A highly recommended little gem!

What a lovely idyllic hotel in a lovely idyllic place. Not only is the hotel a wonderful little find this region of France is just amazing. We spent four days over the recent May bank holiday weekend and it was one of the most relaxing short breaks we have had. The hotel is so relaxed that you unwind instantly and given the location you are immersed in the comfort of the French countryside from the moment you arrive. We drove around to a number of places and the Tarn river and the valley is just stunning with beautiful small French villages to visit. Claudia is a wonderful host and the fact that she has all levels of bikes to hire and lots of cycling and canoeing programs for guests mean that you can be as active as you want in exploring the countryside. The restaurant is superb with a fantastic selection of wines as only the French can do. We will be back and highly recommend this hotel to all.

We were driving from Lourdes to Isle sur la Sorgue and wanted a place a bit off the map to spend the night. Les Magnolias was a shot in the dark but looked promising. Well, I thought I must have died and gone to heaven. It was one of the best hotel experiences ever. The room was great! Stone walls, comfy bed, great reading lights, tons of hot water and clean as a whistle. If that wasn't enough to get your toes tapping, then came dinner or should I say a culinary extravaganza and reasonably priced. All this set in a gem of a village that looks too good to be real. Have I gushed enough yet? You'll thank yourself for booking in. I'm heading back as soon as I can.

The hotel & it's restaurant were very good indeed.
The hotel is finished to a very high standard and the owner is charming & very helpful & informative.
The restaurant is excellent - we ate there every night of our stay & were not bored at all - good value and delicious food

Room Tip: we spoilt ourselves with a suite but saw the smaller rooms in the annex and they all looked very goo...

We went on this "cycling" holiday arranged by Cycing Magnolias at Les Magnolias to be part of some stages of the Tour de France.

This was probably the most fun holiday we have ever had in our lives!

The owners Claudia & Dietmar treated us like long lost friends!

The cycling was excellent and a must for any cyclist, not for the "softies" though! We climbed 700m one day within 45km's. There was also a 10km climb with an ascent of 900m!

Cycling was arranged on a daily basis with a back-up vehicle. If you didn't feel like cycling anymore, or you had bicycle problems, the vehicle was there to pick you up.

The use of bicycles was included in the package and was of an excellent quality. People that don't cycle can use the elctric bikes that was also available.

We were taken to local restaurants that normal tourists will never see. This included an evening at the Night Market where we danced with the locals and ate & drank from the food they were selling.

The food was excellent, more than ample for our hungry systems, the rooms were well equipped, and staff was more than friendly and helpfull.

The fact that we don't speak French was never a problem.

The surroundings was more than pretty.
