We visited Chateau Juvenal in September 2009 and found it to be wonderful. We stayed in the Lilac Room, which was cozy and very pleasant. It overlooks the pond, where tiny frogs leap in as you walk past, and you can see the Chateau's vineyard as well. Breakfast is served at a long table next to the pond. It was excellent -- a variety of cheeses, fruit, cereal, and pastries, and you can request eggs, which are cheerfully served.
Anne-Marie and Bernard, the chateau's owners, are welcoming, kind, knowledgeable, proficient in English, and very helpful. We had let it be known that I would be celebrating my birthday while on vacation, and there was a bouquet of red roses awaiting me in the room. Marie made dinner reservations for us at two other local places, both of which were fabulous.
We are dinner at the chateau. Bernard is an excellent chef, the company was international (they all spoke in English, probably for our benefit), intelligent and lively, and the wine was free-flowing. Do not miss this opportunity.
This area of Provence is particularly lovely and classic -- not much of the industrial stuff you run into elsewhere.
As if the stay was not perfect enough already, as we left Marie presented us with a bottle of their excellent house wine. I can't wait to return.More
