“Wonderful place”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

Stayed 5 nights in mid-March. Very pleasant small hotel nicely
decorated in the Provencal style. Very clean, comfortable and quiet.
Lots of parking and St. Remy is excellent base for touring the area. Number of different restaurants to chose from in the town and had a couple of really excellent meals.
Hotel had a beautiful sitting area outside with table and chairs but unfortunately the weather was too cold to enjoy it when we were there.
Staff did not speak much English but were very anxious to assist with any questions.
Would definitely stay there again.

This hotel is an excellent base for those wanting to tour the region by car or who don't mind walking a little. It is spotlessly clean and very quiet. Rooms are simple, but well appointed with the advantage that there are 2 doors between the sleeping area and corridor thus cutting out any possible corridor noise - at least I didn't hear any. I did not test the owner's English but found him to be both discreet and welcoming. I was so happy with this establishment that I extended my initial stay and would happily come back if returning to the region.

Room Tip: South facing rooms have a more pleasant view and air conditioning, but cost slightly more than the v...

We stayed here only for one night on our route through the south of France. The hotel is really beautiful, well taken care of and it was decorated exquisitely at Christmas time. The owner of the place was not the friendliest of people and could be a little more welcoming on arrival with a little smile perhaps. The room was not big but good enough for us. The place was spotless and very traditional. I loved the feel of the room and of the area. The centre is about 10/15 minutes on foot and the road to the centre is a little narrow and dark at night time. I would definitely recommend for a short stay. We did not eat here.

On 9-29-12 we arrived in pouring rain at the Canto Cigalo at 2:15pm. The desk clerk was indifferent to us, showed us the room, asked if we wanted breakfast and disappeared. No mention was made that we had to order dinner at this time. After resting in the main room of the chambre, we discovered smoke in both the toilet room and the shower room. We opened a window and went for a long walk hoping to air out the two rooms. Did not work. There were signs all over the room that a fine of 68e would be assessed to anyone smoking. We informed the desk [we think the owner] that there was a problem and that we would only stay one of the two nights we had reserved due to health concerns. He informed us we would be charged for both nights. He suddenly only spoke French, although we heard him speak English before, and all written communication to us and his computer were in English. We informed him we would not pay for a second night for a hotel that was advertised as "smoke free," and we would depart the next morning. He had a temper tantrum pretending not to understand English. Another guest gave him our message that we would notify Trip Advisor and write a blog about their deception and disrespect for guests, if he charged us for a night we did not stay. Suddenly he would accept our payment for the first night. Then, in perfect English, he sarcastically said, "You can check out now!" We then would have paid for a room we used for six hours, and without another reservation for that night; that was not an option. On our departure the next morning, the front door was locked and it took quite a search to find a release button. Great during a fire! We noticed at least 16 really large red ashtrays were sitting on the steps. In multiple lengthly trips to France we never encountered such ugly behavior. We think the man should get a new job not working with the public. Our whole experience would have been different had he not tried to cheat us.

We stayed at Canto Cigalo for five nights in early July. We had chosen this hotel based on the Tripadvisor reviews. We had hoped we'd love the place, but overall, we were disappointed.

First of all, the hotel is not as close to the town of St-Remy as advertised. When we were there, temperatures were in the mid-90°s every day, so a walk into town (and back) was not appealing. Also, one should be aware that much of the route is along a narrow lane, where residents sometimes race up and down at breakneck speed. It didn’t seem totally safe during the day, and I would definitely not attempt it at night.

Our room was small but adequate in size, as was the bathroom, and everything was perfectly clean. However, we were quite taken aback by the number of signs posted around the room with instructions and warnings. Two signs directed us not to smoke in the room and one warned of a fine—but there were others. Some examples: It is not allowed to eat in the room. Don’t throw anything in the toilet. Don’t throw your towels on the floor—they will be replaced every three days. Don’t leave the window open and the air-conditioning on.

Others have said that the owners are aloof, and we'd agree. One does not feel like a welcome guest. The positives here are that there is a clean room at an inexpensive price—and there is a pool. If those are not your most important criteria, there are many other options in St-Remy.

I don’t know what is missing to this place become a 5 star. Paradise. Quietness. Beautiful construction, rooms, and decoration. Excellent breakfast. And what a pool! I just hope they keep the fair prices after becoming a 5 star!
I’ll be back!!

We have just returned from a lovely holiday in St Remy and it was our stay in Canto Cigalo that made it so special. From the moment we arrived we knew we had made a great choice. Our room was overlooking the terrace and pool and was very nice. We slept so well it was so relaxing and peaceful. Claude and his staff couldnt do enough for us and especially Valerie who had quite good english and always had a smile. We had access to a lovely spotlessly clean swimming pool and enjoyed a glass of local wines on the terrace.

St Remy was a terrific base for visiting Avignon, Arles, Luberon valley and Aix. We left Canto Cigalo after 6 nights and stayed in Aix for three nights but we were sorry that we didnt stay for our full holiday In Canto Cigalo.

We have already recommended Canto Cigalo to all our friends.

Deirdre.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet but the rooms to the front have a lovely view. They are a little more exspensive...
