Stayed for 4 nights on a demi pension basis. The hotel is wondefully situated in the vineyards near Rasteau with Vaison le Romaine being the nearest town and well worth a visit. The rooms are of 3 star quality and we chose an upstairs room with balcony. Each has a view of the garden or the surrounding countryside.
Breakfast is taken on the large terrace which has a splendid view of the Dentilles and Mont Ventoux. Dinner, likewise can be taken there or inside the air conditioned restaurant. To take either on the terrace with such views is an amazing and restful experience.
The food is truly excellent. So is the welcome.This is the 31st year that the Petrier family have run this Relais du Silence and Madame Petrier still greets her guests each evening as they dine.
English is spoken at Reception but a little French comes in useful (but is not essential) in the restaurant.
This is an excellent base for seeing the local towns and wine villages such as Gigondas and Vacqueyras, and Avignon is only about a 30 minutes easy drive. Orange too is delightful and takes about 20 minutes. Or simply choose a sun lounger or chair in the extensive grounds, lie back and read.
We look forward to another visit.More
