“Beautifully authentic auberge @ the South of France”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

A wonderful, beautifully authentic place surrounded by an astonishing view of the cliffs. The auberge is a nice, comfortable accommodation, with blocks of genuine stone architecture, and it has a gorgeous swimming pool to freshen up in the hot days of the summer. The food is very good and you have the possibility to do great walkings in the surrounding area. I will definitely come back!

If a hotel this beautiful, remote, and pristine were in the US, it would be $400 per night. You'd have satellite TV, hot tubs, and plenty of other pointless stuff that keeps out budget travelers. The owner of this hotel (who speaks perfect English) bought the place from her parents and runs it with her brother. She told me she wants to protect its simplicity, and she's done a great job. The rooms are simple and clean, there are no TVs and you can only get WiFi on a patio outside the restaurant.

What you do get is undisturbed peace and tranquility. There were five or six hikes that begin within 50 feet of the hotel. No driving to a trail head here. Just enjoy buttered bread and coffee as the sun rises over the cliffs, then grab your bag and start walking through the forest. Stop in one of the nearby towns for lunch, or just pack it like we did, and be back in time for dinner at the hotel.

We stayed for four nights, and were going to spend the rest of our vacation in the Alps. The Alps were much prettier, and generally better hiking, we missed the hotel so much we came back after a few days. Like some of the reviewers said, it's hard to explain the appeal of the place. It just very simple, beautiful, and deeply relaxing. As long as you're not expecting a luxury hotel, you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: There's a room above the breakfast dining room. Ask for it. It's much larger, quieter, and h...

A gem of a place, we stayed for 8 nights in June and loved the place. The staff were friendly and helpful, ably led by Amelie whose father built the place . We ate very well, there is a set menu each evening but they are happy to offer an alternative if there's anything that you don't like. We had something different every night and enjoyed it all.

The setting at the end of a gorge is stunning, it feels very isolated but villages like Apt and Bonnieux are only a short drive away.

The buildings of the auberge are set out like a little hamlet, the place is full of character; one of the walls of our room was built into the rock. There are plenty of hiking trails, some of them passing through the property, the fort de Buoux is well worth a visit.

There's a great 20m swimming pool and a little cafe open all day for lunch, ice creams or a beer.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the place and would certainly go back.

Couldn't be more excited about this place at (literally) the end of the road in the Luberon Valley. You come here to take long walks on the many trails, enjoy the quality food on one of the terraces and relax with a good book at the huge pool. Since it used to be a farm a long time ago, a lot of the rooms are very special, so ask to see a couple of different ones if they have more than one available.

Also there are plenty of small markets at the nearby villages and if you need some serious shopping as well – Aix-en-Provence is less than an hour away by car. The place is family owned and has been there for more than 50 years, but be aware that it’s not a spa or a deluxe hotel. If you need that, then please don’t come here. Having said that the rooms are cleaned carefully every day and the food is rustic and authentic. Please note that this place is a lot cheaper than many of the nearby options.

It’s hard to describe the feeling of the place – you need to experience it for yourself, but it is so relaxing and also great for bringing kids along.

We found this auberge a code tally and couldn't have been more pleased awed or enchanted by this beautifully authentic, accommodating and soothing paradise. The rooms are gorgeous, the view stunning, and the service impeccable! Nature lover's beware, this place is stunning. If you're looking to relax, this is the spot, and we look forward to future vacations here year after year. Thank you to the entire staff for keeping this place real, and inviting!! We'll see you soon for sure!

Still untouched by the grasp of tourism, and hidden in the very heart of the Luberon mountains. The Auberge des Seguins is a centuries-old gem, a postcard of a place that sets you back in time, a feeling of a hamlet more than a hotel; and it's the best way to get acquainted with the network of walking paths that zigzag across truffle oak plantations and thyme-laden summits.
Over the past ten years I've spent over 50 nights here, and having stayed in dozens of other hotels and guest houses in the region, I would argue that there's no better place to stay if you want the most memorable and authentic experience of Provence.
