If you are looking for some beautiful, quiet place with magnificent views over the entire region, l'Abbaye has it all. The hotel buidings are very old and beautiful. We had a very nice room with 2 terraces but on the floor plan we saw that some rooms can be really small. The swimming pool is nice and beautifully located but... More

Stayed for a wedding and was given a room which not only had a funny smell upon arrival, but which flooded during a rain storm. To quantify the term flooded the water was an inch deep across the floor. My concern and complaint was met with blank looks from the staff who eventually moved me to another room which was... More

Dear Craig W, We are sorry for the rain storm, it is an exceptional event in Provence. Unfortunately we are not controlling the weather. It is true that there was water but not in all the room.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perched on the rocky outcrops of Salon-de-Provence, a tiny Provence town, which is ideally located to explore everything this delightful area has to offer, there is a tranquil spot where time would appear to have stood still. This 12th century abbey in the hearth of twenty hectares of Provençal gardens and garrigue offers spectacular views of the Alpilles Valley and the countryside surrounding Salon-de-Provence. The rooms still bear traces of the Cistercian monks who once occupied the abbey and boast a décor that blends charm and authenticity and provides a calm and restful atmosphere. You will be delighted with the hotel's attentive service and the culinary delights served in both restaurants which offer delicious dishes based on seasonal local ingredients. ... more   less
