We were driving into Aix and about 6 hours before we arrived, we got a text, asking us to confirm our arrival time. I didn't understand until we arrived, why that was necessary: it's a very small, intimate hotel with only a few rooms and our charming hostess wanted to make sure she was on-site when we arrived.
Finding the hotel was a little tricky as it only has a very small sign on the door.
We drove our car down the small street where the hotel sits and she came out, hauled our luggage inside the hotel and took our car away to a secured parking lot. She was friendly, efficient and and helpful during our stay.
Our room was a nice size for 2 adults, the bed was very comfortable, and there was good internet connection throughout. Our windows opened up to the street, but we had a peaceful sleep and the view in the morning was just lovely.
This is more of a bed & breakfast, in that it serves only breakfast (petit dejeuner) but wow, what a selection and how delicious everything was! Lots of freshly baked bread, ripe fruit, fresh juice, preserves and lots of coffee. We ate everything and it held us till long after lunch.
We had free access to soft drinks, fruit and Nespresso machine during our stay and Alex recommended a funky little restaurant for us that evening, which we enjoyed tremendously.
We were very satisfied and will definitely return.
One small piece of advice: when going out at night, take your room key with you. We didn't realise there would be no one on duty when we came "home" and we had to ring the emergency number (thoughtfully provided on a card along with hotel address and access code to front door), which we felt bad about. We got our key within 5 minutes, so it was no big deal, but next time, we'll bring the key!
