Brilliant location with stunning panoramic views. We had heard mixed reviews about this converted monastery but our experience was excellent. Our room was large and bright with a lovely balcony, the pool was quiet in an idyllic setting and the staff friendly and responsive.

The name of Nostradamus will ever be linked with the town of Salon de Provence in Southern France – a place of knarled olive groves and stark rocks. It is also home to a 12th Century Abbey that has now turned itself into a luxury hotel. This is the Abbaye de Sainte Croix - perched on a plateau between the... More

Stayed here for one night. This is a former Abbey with bags of character, a big pool and views across the valley to die for. The room was very gloomy and the bathroom access through a small door in the wall. Assume it had been a monk's cell at some point, however, he wouldn't have been asked to pay 300... More

The hotel is a Relais et Chateaux in a old abbaye. The place is stunning, on the top of a hill with a beautiful view of the area. The rooms are OK for a R&C, would need refurbishing, but is clean and very quite. The pool is nice. Breakfast is very good and copious. The restaurants are OK although expensive... More

There for a meeting week. Extremely charming place above Salon de provence. Excellent food. Given the price level i was not happy with wifi performance, it disconnected continuously, therefor only 4 points from me.
