“A remarkable bed&breakfast”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

We just spent four nights at the Balcon des Alpilles. What a remarkable bed&breakfast! There was absolutely nothing wrong with the location and our room and the park-like garden and the swimming pool. Quite the contrary. But the breakfast was amazing. During the years we have travelled through France we have never sat at a breakfast table like this. Overwhelming. And if, after let’s say one and a half hour, you tend to get the feeling that you have eaten enough, in comes Josy with a tremendous gâteau and there you go again. Delicious food prepared and served with love. Go and taste for yourself

My husband and i have been coming here to this beautiful Maison d'hôtes for 8 years. We love it every time we come, and highly recommend it to those who love tranqulity, style, amazing breakfasts, lovely rooms and wonderful hosts. The swimming pool is at 30° and is wonderful to swim in. My husband loves to practice his chipping and putting on the putting green.

We had a great (though too short!!!)time "chez les Gatti". The property is very well kept: swimming pool, garden, rooms. The breakfast buffet is something incredible: if don't see it you'll never believe is so good. And everything is local and home-made. Surprisingly present and helpful the owners. We met lots of nice guests who have been spending their holidays their for years….and now we understood why.
So…we only hope to go back again.

Room Tip: the rooms downstairs look straight in the beautiful garden.

We stayed at the balcon des alpilles at the end of July this year. This is a very special b&b indeed. Madame Gatti amd her husband Regis run a very beautiful home. Breakfast is in the form of a buffet and guests sit on the terrace with views of the sparkling pool, lavender, pines and olives. This is no ordinary breakfast it is a gourmet breakfast including home cooked ham (with confit), pate (with foie gras), cheeses, sausage, juices, claifouti (cherry and peach), creme caramel, breads, every fruit you can think of - and Madame even asks if anyone wants eggs!! All day on offer are homemade sweets and biscuits and fresh fruit. If you are by the pool durng the afternoon Madame appears with cake and offers afternoon tea. You can also make your own tea/coffee around the pool whenever you wish and there is a fridge/freezer there for your use. There is also gym equipment by the pool to help burn off thpse gourmet calories. The rooms are of a very high standard and there is beautiful bed linen on the bed. Josy Gatti was extremely helpful and made table reservations for us and was even there offering tea/coffee when we arrived back in the evening. This is a luxurious b&b and we didn't want to leave. Close to Avignon, this is a gem.

Our stay at the Balcon des Alpilles could not have been more pleasant and relaxing: the accomodation is superb (the house has the charm of old stones combined with modern comfort), the garden is beautiful (included a heated swimming pool) and all facilitites are available (american fridge to store food and drinks, fruit and deserts / cakes on tap, etc).

Mr & Mrs Gatti are fabulous hosts who are attentive to their guests' wishes: they can provide advice on restaurants, sights to see, visits / entertainments, etc. Mr & Mrs Gatti have managed to build a loyal clientele that comes year after year: the atmosphere of this house is warm and convivial: we had a great time sharing anecdores and games of golf with the other guests during our stay.

Finally a word on the breakfast: Mr & Mrs Gatti were restaurateurs in their previous lives and it is difficult to beat Mrs Gatti's cooking (we would particularly recommend the French toasts and the scrambed eggs).

This hotel is a gem! It is tucked away in the town of Aureille in a lovely country setting. This charming bed and breakfast style hotel has well-appointed rooms, a sparkling pool (see photo) and a delicious very abundant buffet. Madame Gatti is a wonderful hostess. Although the hotel is located in a tiny town, you are within a short drive from many important towns/sights in Provence, including St. Remy, Les Beaux, Auvergne, Avignon, and Aix.

  • Liked — wonderful breakfast buffet. Abondanza!!! Lovely accomodations.
  • Tips/Secrets — Don't be scared away from its obscure location. You are only 20 minutes away from St. Remy.
