Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 April 2007

First the positives, of which there are many:

1. The staff are uniformally excellent. They really couldn't do enough for us, and always did it with good humour. They really did go to huge efforts to make our stay enjoyable;

2. The Auberge is surrounded by vineyards and forests - you can hardly see a house. You can walk through the extensive grounds, play tennis, swim in the beautiful outdoor pool (though the water was cold in early April), go on a wine tasting course etc. etc.. This is a fantastic place to unwind;

3. It's a relatively easy one hour drive from Toulon, so it is very accessible.

Then the negatives - of which there are some:

1. The food, though good (and at times, though not always, very good), can become a bit repetive over a long stay (the menu changed once in the week we were there, but we barely noticed, as the changes were so minor), and the only wine which is served comes from the Chateaux. So you'll have to go elsewhere in the evening to get any sense of variety. This is a real shame, as you hardly want to leave the place it's so relaxing. Also, there's pipped music in the dining room during every meal (breakfast, lunch and dinner), though you eat outside in hot weather, so this would be less of a problem in summer;

2. The local town (Lorgues) felt a bit threatening at night - I wouldn't really want to take an evening stroll there - there were a lot of bored youths on mopeds or just hanging around the place, and the locals also said they didn't like the atmosphere there. Which means a very windy road up to Tourtour (about 15 mins. away by car), or a drive to other local towns becomes necessary if you want to go for a walk in a local town before dinner.

All in all, I felt that the hotel was maybe a bit too far from the coast (about an hour's drive to St. Maxime, maybe two hours to St. Tropez with the traffic along the coast, though you can park in St. Maxime and get a boat to St. Tropez, which is quicker), and that the area, whilst charming and beautiful, didn't quite have the interest of places which are inland but which are further West, near Nimes, Arles, Avignon etc. Having said that, it makes for a very relaxing stay, where you can re-charge your batteries, and there are a huge number of activities to keep you occupied.

Stayed: April 2007

If you're looking for a happening scene - this is not the spot.
If you want a romantic and relaxing getaway with great food, great wine and incredible staff, this is just the place!
The pool, the winery, the beautiful rooms with rainfall showers and lovely balconies are just perfect. After four days here returning to my busy schedule was a breeze.

Set deep in the countryside is one of Provence's best kept secrets, a small luxury hotel next door to the chateau from which it takes its name. The hotel comprises nineteen rooms/suites all decorated in an individual style, each with its own terrace or balcony, the experience is more like that of being a house guest in a country home. The gourmet food is wonderful, and meals are served either on the pretty terrace overlooking the chateau or in the dining room. The staff and the standard of service could not be bettered - you are looked after so well. Some of the activities on offer on the estate include wine tasting, quad biking, tennis and beauty treatments. If I have one piece of advice, make sure that you hire a car (we didn't) in order to explore the surrounding area. All in all a pampering experience.
