“A beautiful retreat in the heart of Provence”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

This lovely little hotel is a perfect home base for exploring Provence. Large windows give you beautiful views and the rooms have a Provencal touch that adds to the overall feel. Outside, there's a peaceful garden and pool where you can have a drink or read in peace. The staff couldn't be more friendly and accommodating.

Tucked away under the trees as you enter the village Hotel du Poete provided a restful stop for Fran and I in our journey through beautiful Provance.
This hotel is ''special'' in every aspect. The room was comfortable and large enough (large by French standards). The gardens and pool area were tranquil and very relaxing. The food was good value for money. We extended our stay in the busy July holiday period just to enjoy and relax in this beautiful hotel in this village. Would have loved to stay longer but were booked on a flight back to Cape Town but will always remember this stay with fond memories.

We were never disappointed with this place! Location is terrific! Several currents of river Sorgues run through the hotel; this gives calming water sound that makes you sleep like a baby. Surrounding area is great. There is a nice garden with pool and jacuzzi facing Vaucluse Mountains. Hotel itself is very likeable and cozy. There is Free parking & Free fast wifi.
Nice breakfast is served for 17Eur.
Good restaurants & shops are just near by (5 mins walk)

If to be a bit picky I'd say that our room was quite small and I'd prefer shower with curtain rather than bath tub without hanger & curtain.

In any case I'd highly recommend this place!

Let's begin by saying that Fontaine de Vaucluse is one of the stunning places that we've visited in Provence. So, this hotel should have make a great job to compromise this feeling. But on the contrary.
We've arrived late at night after a long drive. The village was quiet as a tomb. The GPS navigated us to the hotel after we picked it up with the Tripadvisor App. The reception and the lobby are warmly decorated and the clerk (Black hair, black eyes, black shirt and pants and a low voice :-) ) offered us a standard room for 125 Euros per night and showed us the room.
This hotel well deserves its 4-star. The spacious room is decorated with amenities and decor from the life of poets and musicians, the bed is huge and comfortable and the shower & toilet are spotless. When opening the window you can hear the sound of the spring stream that flows beneath the hotel and through the beautiful garden at the back.
We didn't go to breakfast (17 Euro Each) and had some breakfast at the boulangerie in the village.
Bottom line: a gem at a decent price.

I had a wonderful experience staying at Hotel Du Poete for 4 days with my friends.
The hotel grounds is so vast and beautiful, it felt like we were staying in a retreat.
The rooms (Superior Double Room Melodie) were spacious and clean. I'm usually a light sleeper but I would fall asleep like a baby especially when listening to the soothing sounds of the water flowing outside from the River Sourge. The hotel is within walking distance to the town centre so it was very conveniently located to all the shops and restaurants. We loved Fontaine Du Vaucluse, such a picturesque place. If we were visiting Aix-En-Provence or Avingon, we would always look forward to returning to Hotel Du Poete and relaxing in the outdoor jacuzzi while admiring the stunning views. If you decide to visit Fontaine Du Vaucluse, I would make this hotel your first option! It's a perfect base for discovering this beautiful village and surrounding areas.

We chose this place based on reviews and the fact that most placed were already booked as we planned our trip late. This place is amazing. I would say in terms of quality it is above 3 stars, closer to 4. We had a melodie room. It overlooked the river, was very well appointed and extremely clean and comfortable. The test of the hotel was wonderful - charming common area, full bar with great wines and fairy tale like outside area. Highly highly recommended. We look forward to coming back.

Many of the " beautiful villages " are so full of tourists and overpriced and unoriginal that their beauty is worn out---this one is still a beauty. It feels like you are sitting in a beautiful French chambre at the base of the Yosemite valley. The walks are lovely, the people are friendly,end the food is delicious--we had a vin rose from the cotes de Vendeux and it was so refreshing. The whole experience is refreshing to the soul.

Room Tip: There is an excellent elevator. Parking is easy.
