I don't know how the place was before. But I agree with the general evaluation. You don't get what you would expect for the money you are spending. The bastide is nice, so are the garden and swimming pool. The rooms are just OK (AC is silent, which is not often), but you can hear noise from neighbors. Well, you... More

We booked a night at this place, because of the good memories we had on it during a previous visit, we saw it as a very special place, offering good service and fine food. So happy to return and seeing that the place kept it's magical look although some points have changed and not for the good... Upon checking in... More

We have stayed at the Relais every year for over ten years because of the ambience created by the family who owned it for many years. This June we visited to find that the family had sold out to a third party. The accommodation was the same, the staff were pleasant but it lacked any atmosphere and was not managed... More

We have been staying at Magdeleine every year for a long time. The place is unique, and the atmosphere is almost meditative. A perfect place to "get away from it all"! We were very sad to see that the new owners do not keep up the standard. The new staff are (mostly) very friendly and nice. But this isn't quite... More

We have stayed in this wonderful old hotel built in the 18th century as a military hospital several times. On our most recent visit at the end of May we were surprised to find that the family that had owned and run it for many years had sold it. It was bought by the town of Gemenos to prevent it... More

Can only confirm what a tranquil place this is, from arrival driving through the park with magnificient big trees to the comfortable and tasteful rooms with good beds. Highlight for us was breakfast on the terrace under the trees with our dog playing in the park with resident German Shepherd dog Maya. Food was excellent at dinner, breakfast didnt blow... More

I have been here 3 times, and I am looking forward to an excuse to visit again. I travel a lot for business and pleasure but this is my favourite place. It is so relaxing and every room is a pleasant surprise. French chic at it's best, comfortable rooms and facilities,the atmosphere is just soothing. Sitting on the terrace with... More

I have stayed at Relais de la Magdeleine several times. First time was on my Honeymoon, years ago. It was one of the high points of our experience in France. We loved it so much we went back several times (from the USA). I had not been there in ten years and just recently stayed at Gemenos again, this August... More

This was our second stay at this amazing little hotel. The staff were friendly and we felt welcome in their haven. Our room and bathroom were huge and had every comfort one would need. The breakfast was delicious and served in a magnificent setting. Thank you to all for making our stay so wonderful.

This is our favorit favorite hotel in Provence. An old mansion from the 17 century, beautifully furnished with authentic and original furniture. All rooms are individually decorated in the old style. The food is amazing and the wines are good. To sit under the plane trees and have a drink while waiting for the dinner is magical. Here time stops... More
