I have probably stayed at this.hotel ten times in past years, but this was the first visit in 8 to 10 yrs. Maussane is perhaps the perfect Provencal town with a square, church, and setting out of a movie set. The hotel is in better condition than ever. The hardwood floors in our room seemed new and the bathroom fixtures... More

We had a very comfortable and quirkily stylish room with a great view over the Place de l'eglise. The bathroom was well appointed - apart from the lack of a toilet roll holder, which can make things surprisingly awkward ! The cooking in the restaurant showed flair, for example, in an exquisite tatin d'aubergines and beautifully presented desserts. However, the... More

We went for lunch during our annual trip to Mouriès and not only the food was excellent with fresh food, but the service was helpful and friendly so much that we decide to go back there 2 days after and then again everything was perfect. The kids menu was very yummy as well and the rosé wine very nice. I... More

I have stayed three times in L'Oustaloun. The rooms are very charming, and the beds are very comfortable. If you get a room with a view on the Place, you can watch the scenery from above. I just spent four days in room 5. A very large room, and a modern bathroom and a view of the Place. The food... More

This hotel is a bit funky, but a pleasant quaint atmosphere makes up for the several flights of steps. The owner was kind enough to carry my bag up to my room. I stayed in Room #8 which is what they call a quadruple room. It had two full beds and a large nice newly renovated bathroom. It was comfortable... More

The hotel is quaint and very charming, and the restaurant is fabulous. We had the best meal we've had in France yet, after being in southern France for 4 months. It is obvious that the locals enjoy this restaurant also. The service was great, and the food was interestingly prepared. We will go back.

We Reserved 4 days quite a while ago. Pictures do not honestly portray this place and we were troubled by mold or something that created severe respiratory distress and wanted to cancel the remaining 3 days. Only after a really ugly confrontation did the owner let us cancel the 3 remaining days. We would not be leaving this negative review... More

We chose l'Oustaloun as we had enjoyed a wonderful meal there many years ago, and because of its central location in Maussane, our favourite Provençal town. However when shown up almost three flights of stairs (this being quite an old building there is obviously no lift) we had mixed feelings about our room. Agreed, it could be called "quaint" if...

My husband and I had the distinct pleasure of staying at l’Hotel l'Oustaloun during the week of 10/2 to 10/9. When we arrived, we received a warm welcome by the hotel/restaurant owners who showed us to our very charming room. It was carefully decorated with each piece, adding to the overall quaintness and character of the room. From our window,... More

The Alpilles in general are a lovely area to investigate in Provence. Rugged mountain miniatures, great for walking/climbing. A village on the southern edge is Maussane and on the village square is L'Oustaloun, an immaculate place typical of the sort of hotel we have loved to discover over the years. The rooms overlook the square, which is often bustling with... More
