Les Baux is undeniably breathtaking, and this hostellerie allows you to stay inside the village itself. I felt as though I had travelled back in time, or was living within a theme park (in a good way). The staff allowed us to check in early, and were helpful when it came to arranging transportation to our next destination. We enjoyed our meals in the outdoor cafe (dinner and breakfast) and they served the best coffee/cocoa that we had in the region. The accommodations themselves were simple, but what it lacked in luxury it made up for with its view and location. I was surprised to see another reviewer mention air conditioning, because neither of our rooms were climate controlled. This was a problem because we were visiting during a heatwave, there was no fan, and the window had no screen which allowed several flies in. Also, we were traveling with a toddler and were terrified she would fall out the window as the railing was purely decorative so we had to keep the window closed for her safety. To end on a positive note, this place smelled AMAZING and the location and views simply can't be beat. I don't know what they used to clean the room, but the lavender fragrance was heavenly!
