We stayed here for two nights in September. Our room was very clean and large, and the bed comfortable. The one drawback was that the room was really humid. The bathroom was spacious but the shower had no glass or curtains so you would have water everywhere every time you showered. WiFi was feeble in the room but worked just... More

My mother and I stayed at this chambre d'hotes for three nights last May. The weather wasn't perfect, in fact it rained two out of the three days that we had to explore Aix and the surrounding area, but it didn't stop us from enjoying ourselves.

Cons: No A/C, but as long as you know this going in it is no problem. Also, make sure you arrive in daylight and follow the directions closely. The place is... More

Our 6-night stay at this bastide was a very laid-back, relaxing experience. Marie was the perfect hostess, visiting us during breakfast, but not in an intrusive way. Breakfast, by the way, was an absolute joy, served on the patio right outside our room- a generous selection of fruits and cheeses, baguettes and croissants, and of course, cafe au lait and... More
