This converted chateau hotel is oozing with character: from the drive through the extremely narrow streets to get to the hotel (warning make sure you have a small car), to the twisty staircases and small corridors to explore, to the stunning woodbeams and amazing view from the room; my wife and I were charmed by this place from the moment we arrived.
The hotel has an excellent restaurant where we dined for dinner and breakfast. The food was excellent quality, as was the wine. The head waiter is a friendly chap who went above and beyond e.g. when we ordered a bottle of red wine, he brought us one three years older because he said it was a better vintage (and it was excellent).
The local village is equally charming - we enjoyed an evening stroll around the narrow cobble stone streets and were relieved / surprised at how few tourists there were (especially compared to nearby St Paul de Vance). The only downside we could site was the lack of somewhere to swim - I guess this is why the village wasn't bustling tourists, with most preferring to be by the sea or at a hotel with a pool. In our case, the hotel was perfect for a one night treat, but it might not be ideal for a full summer vacation.
