It was our Ruby wedding anniversary on 1st July and as we were very familiar with Frejus / St Raphael in the south of France having previously owned a mobile home there for sixteen years, we decided to treat our two adult children to a long weekend in the area. So via an eighty minute, ontime flight to Nice and a hire car we made our way to the Auberge Provencale at Le Dramont, just to the east of St Raphael. I chose it unseen, as it seemed reasonable value and rustic. We had to book as far back as September last year as rooms for the season were going fast.
On arrival, which is a little tricky to find, we found a quaint and rustic two star hotel with buckets of charm. We were met by the owner, a middle aged guy who speaks no - I mean no English. Even so we managed with our bits of French and much gesticulating to be shown our rooms. Ours was small, comfortable for our short stay, shower, sink, air conditioning, very comfortable double bed, telephone and enough storage. It is not five star but spotlessly clean and even has free WIFi. The weather was scorching so the outside eating area at breakfast was superb. Croissants, rolls, jams, juice,butter and coffee or hot chocolate.
There is free car parking ten metres across the very quiet road.
I make this a four star rating based on whatis offered and expected for the money paid. I would certainly stay there again.
