I brought a large group to this terrific hotel as part of Spyns 2013 Tour de France trip. Shoppers should avoid this hotel because it's in the smallest village in Provence, but our cyclists loved the location just north of Mont Ventoux and several Tour de France stages. As in any hotel, the rooms vary in size and amenities so you certainly get what you pay for. The suites are stunning but even the smallest room (which was mine) were comfortable and I believe the owners have made an effort to make the smaller rooms more comfortable by adding bigger bathrooms, a terrace etc. Where this hotel excels is with its service. I often avoid Relais & Chateaux because the owner/managers are too snobbish and fussy. With the exception of the Italian restaurant manager who was quite a diva, the hotel's manager and staff couldn't have been more relaxed and accommodating. Meals were excellent and served by the restaurant's highly effecient staff. Two suggestions however: first, I would recommend adding more cleaning staff for group bookings as room cleaning was slow; and second, I'd be consistent with the breakfast service time as we were given conflicting information. Despite these minor critiques, we will certainly return for Spyns 2015 Tour de France trip when the tour returns to Provence.
