The hotel here is for sale, so the owner doesn't feel the need to accommodate her guests. There is no room service, no cleaning or change of towels, and the owner is not on the premises except at breakfast. My husband and two children and I were jet-lagged and came to breakfast at 11 am, and she scolded us for... More

Les Duex Abbesses is no longer a Relais & Chateaux hotel. The owner has 3 beautiful and unusual rooms, along the tiny cobbled lanes threading the village. Our room had a marble bath beside a huge window and it was bathed in sunlight with a wonderful view. The village is on a headland with deep gorges either side and a... More

A recent e-mail from Les Deux Abbesses prompted me to look at the Trip reviews and I noticed someone had commented after a 4.5 year absence.........which made me want to write a (very belated) review even though it was 2009 when we last visited and that followed our first visit the year before.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 days on our honeymoon, in between Cannes and Paris. We've been married 4.5 years now and I always intended to write a review about the magical stay we had at Les Deux Abbesses. I'm so pleased that the reviews are still sky high and I'll now add my two cents even though... More

Second trip in 5 years and better than I remembered as food has definitely improved. To eat a 7 course dinner with amazing tastes and not feel "stuffed" is a huge achievement . Breakfast st in the garden is one of the best breakfasts ever and nothing is too much trouble . If you want the perfect away from it... More

This Hotel we tried to book through Relais & Chateaux on June 6th for three nights in July. We were attracted by the beauty of their homepage and the promising pictures of the area and the rooms. The booking went smoothly as we have had the assistance of a lady on the phone and asked her to go for two... More

Relaxing place in the middle of nowhere, top service, the cheapest room that we had was both beautiful and confortable. The dinner was an experience in itself - all six dishes were exceptional! Don't forget to ask for full hot breakfast, which is included. In our case the waiter proposed bread, croissants, preserves, yogourt and tea/coffee without offering anything else,... More

Quiet, discreet, elegant, small establishment. Located in the 'outback' of France, this is the place to come if you're looking for pleasant hikes, fascinating medieval cathedrals and no crowds (and no tourist scourge). Dinner comes with the rate, and its because there really isn't a restaurant scene anywhere nearby (which was terrific by us). Food was delicious, wine list a... More

The location is incredible, a unique setting being in the middle of this idyllic village. The room was so cute, it was essentially a whole house. Charming, beautifully decorated. Staff were helpful and friendly, very at tentative and a real family feeling. Food was good but not great. Was going to mark the property down for this one reason, but... More
