We had a very enjoyable 5 night stay at this small friendly family run hotel. Our superior room was 95€ a night, simple and clean it had a small balcony with table and chairs overlooking the swimming pool and olive groves. The room was quite small, but that is normal in France and especially in Provence. The king size bed... More

Restaurant has average food with a very poor, uninspired wine list. Rooms are in need of a rennovation and new furniture. On the bright side itchas a good location in a beautiful part of the French countryside. Many better options nearby though.

We stopped at this hotel at night on our way to Les Baux. It is a lovely little hotel with a restaurant and bar. We got a room for 3 for 90 euro a night. The rooms are simple and clean and ours had a patio overlooking the pool. The breakfast is an extra charge for 9.50. It was decent,... More

We choose this place because of it's location, close to Arles but still in the countryside. I also liked it being close to Baux en Provence and a reasonable drive to the Camargue NP. The room we had was simple but had everything we needed and xame with a nice little terrace. The breakfast was delicious abd worth the money.... More

We had stayed a this family run hotel 15 years ago with our 3 young sons. It belonged to different people then but it was lovely although the food was very rustic and the mosquitoes were evil. This time around, we found that the new owners have put in air conditioning in all the neat and welcoming rooms, so no... More

First of all location is fantastic with a 10-20 minute drive to a variety of sites but in the countryside. Food is excellent. Staff are very very [very!] friendly and helpful. Hotel is small, family-run a true Provençal experience. Keep in mind that rooms are very small (in keeping with the region). Would certainly return.

One reviewer has already pointed out that the rooms in this hotel aren't large. That's an understatement. They are absolutely tiny, or at least the one we stayed in was. The shower is equally compact. They were so tiny as to be actually difficult to move around in. That having been said, the location (outside of Fontvielle) is great, the... More

We stayed here with our two children for three nights-- a convenient base for exploring Baux de Provence, Avignon, and surrounding area. The proprietor and staff were lovely. The room was not large but it was clean, had A/C, and a lovely terrace facing the courtyard/pool which our children really enjoyed. The restaurant is absolutely fantastic! A very pleasant time.

Stayed here 2 nights in July as a wedding was done the road at the stunning La Cabro d'Or. It's inexpensive and easy to find. From Nimes airport, you go thru Fountainville toward Beux Provence and its on the left as you go up the road toward the medieval village, which is very similar to St Paul De Vence further... More
