We have been there 4 times since the opening. No need to say we are big fans. We did see the hotel evolving among the time while we came once in summer, twice in winter and celebrate the new year this last time. The recent hotel transformation was a huge one and we feel you start to loose a bit... More

The hotel is nestled into a hillside in a beautiful region of France; there are no views however unless you walk to the top of the hill behind the property. Contemporary interior decor is surprising at first but one gets used to it, and the furnishings are very comfortable. A large living room fireplace made things cozy, which was appreciated... More

This hotel is situated in a wonderful part of the country, it looks great and could be so perfect. Had been here repeatedly in the summer when some of the meals had been staggeringly overpriced but I had so enjoyed the beauty treatments at the excellent spa that I was willing to overlook it.

Mountain of Lure is the same height as Mont Ventoux, but definitely not crowded and more natural. Tranquility and peace are the nice feelings felt all over the larger area of Le Lubéron.

I would have loved to give this hotel 5* for it has fantastic cuisine, a beautiful setting (visit Eco-Musée de L'Olivier) and interesting towns nearby, take a walk in the countryside and definitely enjoy the L'Occitane SPA. The loss of one star is due to (1) the standard rooms are small for a hotel of this rating and (2) we... More
