We had stayed at another Alain Ducasse hotel last Summer and staying at L'Abayye de la Celle suited our moving around Provence. The location is very strange however and there is nothing else in this small hamlet of La Celle but the hotel and a small cafe. This means really driving out each day to visit and explore. We were allocated a room in an annexe which had a "private garden" this was a disgrace and was simply two armchairs on a very small patio surrounded by gravel and grass. No effort had been made to add some foliage or colour with pot plants and planters which is surprising as you can see the effort made in other areas of the hotel garden. The management might suggest this was a "relaxed" or "wild" space but if you are going to describe it as a garden then make it look like one. The pool area was very strange and looked almost unfinished. It is accessed through a very odd security gate and walk way terrace which looks as if it is waiting for some flowering and planting to be added to finish it off. The chairs and umbrellas were very good quality and towels were laid out each day but when sunbathing up there you just felt a little isolated. You can phone down to the main hotel but it could be more relaxed with staff coming up from the main house periodically to see if guests are ok or would like drinks etc. We ate in the restaurant on all 3 nights and it is a lovely terrace to sit on. The menu is good but if you were here for more than a few days i think you would get very bored as the "seasonal menu" doesn''t change enough. Breakfast was very pleasant on the terrace and politely served. The staff are polite and efficient but I think they need to take more direction from the GM who was incredibly engaging and friendly. WIFI was a little slow and sporadic and I think this needs to be worked on. Air conditioning in room clicked on and off all night which was a little disturbing.
