Recently stayed here for 4 nights short break. Hotel was very nice the proprietors were extremely accommodating and welcoming despite my feeble attempts to speak French . Hotel rooms are basic but normal furnishings for this part of France . Room was clean with a balcony and a nice view of the pool and the country side across Provence . Breakfast was good with a wide range of choice though at an additional cost . Swimming pool area captured the sun all day if you wanted to chill out though the pool was extremely cool and not many of those staying could manage more than a few lengths before returning to the sun beds . Hotel has a large car parking area off road .the hotel is in easy walking distance of the village centre and the restaurants around the main square . The hotel is ideal location for Les Baux Avingion and Arles and only a 1 hour drive from Marseilles airport . Only criticism I would have of the hotel is that after 8 pm they rely on a code system to allow you access,unfortunately on our last night they failed to tell us that they had changed the code which resulted in us spending 15 minutes trying to get work out how we would gain entry lucky for us another couple returned to the hotel that had the right code otherwise this unfortunate oversight it could have been a very long night on the front step which for an older couple could have been distressing. Despite this I would recommend this hotel for the convenience of location to all the attractions of Provence .
