We are a family of five and spend our summers cycling around Europe. Out of eight trips, 5000 kilometers and roughly 80-90 different hotels and B&Bs, I have to say this one is top five. Probably even top three, competing with some rather exclusive places in Germany and Austria. Just don't expect Hilton, or you'll be dissapointed. It is an old house with all the quirks of an old place, but that just makes it incredibly charming. And peaceful to boot! Cleanliness leaves nothing to be desired and rooms are very tastefully decorated. We actually just spent two hours just sitting in the bed and enjoying the room and the silence, doing absolutely nothing (but sipping some wine, courtsey of the host). Wonderful! The pool is a lovely place to spend an afternoon or early evening, watching the sun set over the distant hills, while making a simple pasta in the small kitchen. The owner is an excellent host and if you contact him, he'll probably be happy to serve you a nice dinner. I can't recommend it highly enough!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Framed by a forested valley and mountainous horizons, this 17th-century chateau marries Provencal peace with deep comfort and style. Eric greets you in a courtyard whose manicured hedges and white roses dissolve into parkland: a panoramic pool, Japanese fish pond, tennis court, jacuzzi... Under vaulted ceilings are more treats: a log fire, piano, candles, art, and Turkish cushions in the orangery where you may dine usually on Sunday evening on iced melon soup and quail. Sprightly Eric cooks, serves, pours and chats all the while. Immaculate rooms have space for families and the valley cries out for walking, riding and fishing in the Rhone. ... more less
