We arrived in Trets on the final days of our travel and the place was perfect for us. We had a large room on the top floor with a lot of things you do not expect in French older hotels. King size bed, large room ,individual climate control and apparently resident owners or staff. Trets is a lovely town with... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in September for a short break. We wanted to stay outside of the city of Marseille but with within easy reach of most of the sights. Hotel de Vallee de L'arc is a great hotel in an equally lovely village. We arrived late at night and the owners had given instructions in advance of how... More

What a find! A warm welcome and attentive staff in this very clean hotel located in the centre of a bustling, historical town. The downstairs is light, modern and designed with panache, while the room we had on the first floor was clean and reassuringly rustic. We would love to return.

The hotel is situated in the centre of Trets,in close proximity of the local buzz. The town itself is okay, nice green streets, with some character, but not very picturesque or of specific touristic value. The rooms are simple and in a nice mediterreneans style, beds are comfy and the bathrooms clean and sufficient. We arrived late, just passing through,... More

AMBROISE M, Propriétaire at Hotel de la Vallee de L'arc, responded to this review

First of all, we must apologize for the misunderstanding. Indeed, the persons who were there during your stay are not the owners. This is an exceptional replacement. For your information, owners speak fluent English. Besides, regarding the cracks, our flooring is in Provencal floor-tiles. Added to this, our hotel is an ancient post office of the 18th century, so is... More

The hotel was really nice. We especially enjoyed the hint of lavendar essence in the fan; a welcome touch after a day of sightseeing. The front desk people were very friendly and welcoming. Dinner in the village was nice - and a nice winery outside of town. The room was small, but it was perfectly fine for us. The building... More

This Hotel is the right place for anyone touring the Provence on their own and trying to avoid mass tourism,. This is a very well kept, welcoming, inexpensive, and authentic hotel in the very centre of a village which someone here noted is "dead". It isn't dead, rather, it is not overrun by tourists, but a normal village where people... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights in early May 2011 and found it well placed for Aix-en-Provence and the coast near Marseilles and Cassis. You receive a warm and helpful welcome; the owner printed out a sheet of local places to eat as we asked where was good. There is plenty of free parking in Trets and you... More

The hotel is very well kept. It is clean quiet and affordable. The staff were incredibly patient with me and my limited knowledge of Francais. The manager and his family were extremely helpful and kind for my entire stay. They made the stay in Trets feel like home. I would recommend this hotel as an excellent place to stay. The... More
