We often stay in Relais Chateaux or Small Luxury Hotels. This hotel is a real pleasure. It's beautiful, friendly, comfortable. This will be our place in Provence!! When you drive up to the hotel, it is absolutely astounding! This property has been in the same family for six generations. The innkeepers are real pros and are so warm and nice.... More

Words cannot describe how wonderful this hotel Is even though many other Trip Advisor contributors have tried. Set in the peaceful gardens close to the village this is a place of peace run by Phillip and Christine and supported by Fred the dog. We spent five nights here in late October where unusually the weather was perfect. The room was... More

We spent four nights at Riboto de Taven and chose this location for several reasons. It was a reasonable price, centrally located in Provence between Arles, Aix and Avignon and there was no fee to park your car. Le Baux is a beautiful old village built into the side of a rock mountain. The valley below is filled with olive... More

You can pay a lot more to stay in/near Les Baux but why bother? La Riboto is fantastically well located - great view of town from the pool - and it's run by the most welcoming team of people. Quiet, good food and comfortable, clean rooms; what more do you need! And Carrieres des Luminieres - a must-see - is... More

The property has been in the family for 4 generations. Christine and Phillipe will be retiring shortly. Timing is everything and I feel so grateful we had the opportunity to stay at this fantastic property when we did. First of all the grounds are exceptional. There are many different seating areas around the property with different views. We stayed in... More

We found La Riboto de Taven (meaning: Feast of the Friendly Mountain Witch) through TripAdvisor -- the reviews were exceptional, and we were not disappointed. First, you must understand that this little inn is at the foot of the historic castle and village of Baux de Provence -- a short walk up the hill brings you to that glorious, incomparable,... More

Hotel room was very pretty and it had enough space for our needs. We get a very good night sleep since the room and environment were so quiet. The hotel restaurant was romantic with great home food, I recommend having at least one dinner there (they had nice packages in the hotel site). We stayed just one night in the... More

We spent 5 nights at Riboto recently and had a wonderful time. The location is ideal- easy access to other parts of Provence for day trips. Looking up at Les Baux every day as well as the cliffs above Riboto was fantastic. The grounds are very green and lush with well maintained and designed terraced gardens. Public area such as... More

This was a gem! The owners were so hospitable--they made it seem like home for us. They even made american pancakes for the girls for breakfast and at dinner they prepared whatever the girls wished. The food was fantastic. The rooms were wonderful, quite large and the bathrooms huge and modern. The setting is lovely. It is now a favorite... More
