La Peiriero
Ranked #6 of 8 Hotels in Fontvieille
Reviewed 3 July 2011

Our family of 2 adults & 3 kids (11-14) found this three star hotel to be an absolute oasis while traveling in France. We were exploring the Avignon-Arles-Camargue area, which was in itself wonderful. The hotel is between Arles and Les Baux, the medieval city. The hotel's lovely green grounds, big swimming pool, ping pong and volleyball net were the outdoor escape, while the fairly spacious duplex family-style room was a very quiet place to get rest. We stayed 2 nights. In sum we found that some aspects of the hotel were family friendly, and some less so.

The room was clean with a beautiful, modern bathroom. It had a double and a twin on the top floor, and two single beds downstairs. The only unfortunate surprise was that there was only one bathroom, whereas our tour book and the hotel's website said that the family-style duplexes had 2 bathrooms. Apparently both are available but we did not know that nor was anything mentioned on the reservations as to the number of bathrooms. So that was a big squeeze and getting ready in the morning took a long time. If you stay there with 5-6 people, you might want to specify a duplex room with 2 bathrooms, though you do pay a little more.

The bar and restaurant were nice but in some ways more suitable to adults than to families. The dinner prix-fixe menu was 30 euros, and only children under 11 years old are supposed to get a price break (half price dinner). To us it seemed pricey and a little over the top for our 3 tired tween-teens. So we asked at the hotel front desk for a recommendation for a kid-friendly restaurant in the area. They responded by encouraging us to eat at the hotel and offering the reduced-portion half price dinner for all our kids, even the 14 year olds, and even said we could also choose a simple dinner for them of steak or turkey with vegetables which was not advertised on the menu. Both options sounded good! The manager told the restaurant staff about it, but the restaurant staff were really stiff and indignant about the whole thing and had to "double check" on it while we were ordering. Yuck. We ended up feeling like we were trying to waggle some cheap deal, when in fact the hotel had offered it. However, the food was excellent and we loved the dinner until the mosquitoes arrived at the very end of dessert. (Don't dine super late on the terrace in mosquito weather.)

We didn't eat breakfast there, but the buffet looked super inviting and we wished we'd had time. The demi-pension of 37 euros per day for adults for breakfast and dinner seems like a good way to eat very well while exploring the region, and not have to spend time looking around for restaurants.

One of the best things about the hotel was the excellent, friendly, professional front desk personnel. They were all completely gracious and kind.

Overall I would say that this is a great choice for couples, and a good family hotel if your kids have great manners, and are adorable and well behaved, because even though it has a pool, grassy area and big rooms available, it has a tranquil and serene kind of old-world atmosphere.

Room Tip: For duplexes, ask how many bathrooms it has.

Fantastic place to stay with kids, with friendly staff and inside a typical french village in Provence.
The room had place for 5 people at ease. Definitely worth the money.

Didn't have any complaints. In checking reviews note that the negative reviews are a year or two old, and mostly concern the staff. Our experience was completely contrary - the staff was very friendly and met our every need. Hotel is airconditioned (which increasingly became a necessity as our trip progressed and the daytime highs went into the mid 90s). Our room was very spacious - it actually had two twin beds plus our full (or queen - don't remember) bed. We used the twins to put our suitcases on, lying open, and didn't need to fully unpack. (We were only there two nights.)

It wasn't as charmy-cosy as the other places we stayed in the Luberon but that was more because of the size (about 40 rooms compared to 5-6 at the other places) than any fault of the structure or the staff. We would definitely go back.

La Peiriero was a great place to stay for our trip to Provence. The loft room was great for a family of 4, including 2 teenagers. The room was clean and spacious with two full baths and two TVs. We loved the balcony overlooking the backyard, with beautiful pool and play areas. The terrace restaurant served amazing breakfasts and wonderful dinners. We loved the meals of fresh Provencal ingredients and the 'cocktail of the day' (alcoholic or not) were delicious. The service at the front desk and at the restaurant was very friendly and helpful. The snackbar at the pool was a great place for a casual lunch or afternoon snack. The nearby village of Fontvieille, which is within a short walk, has a number of shops and restaurants and many different activities. The pillows aren't the best we have had but were okay.

We choose this hotel for i'ts location -between Nimes, Arles, Les Baux de Provence and St. Remy. And the location is very central. The hotel is very nice with a beautyful garden and swimmingpool. Children has there own room to play (with all kinds of toys). Dining is nice in the nearby villages bur also more than oke in the hotel.

We recently stayed at La Peiriero, which was booked through our cycling tour company. What a lovely and quaint hotel to return to each night after an exhausting day of cycling. The meals at the hotel were excellent, and the staff friendly and accomodating.

We would have loved to stay longer, and I would highly recommend this as a hotel to base yourself out of when exploring the Provence area.

We were extremely dissappointed with our stay at this hotel. The staff was very unaccomodating, which I found surprising as it is advertised as being a family friendly hotel. I would not recommend this hotel to families with young children. The hotel is very noisy. You can actually hear people talking in their rooms when you're walking in the hallways. There is a nice pool, however.
