My husband, our two daughters (age 7 and 4) and I spent 5 nights there and we absolutely loved it. We stayed in what the staff calls the "Appartement", i.e. the huge suite that is located in the farmhouse off of the main building. It was wonderful. It consists of one large master bedroom with its own bath, one large family room with two twin beds and its own full bathroom (this one equipped with a shower), a kitchenette, two TVs, and a lovely view on the surrounding garden. The room has been recently renovated. It is also spotlessly clean. The beds are extremely comfortable ( which scored high marks with my husband and me- we find that it is not the case at most French hotels).
The chateau is a mere 3 minutes drive from town and about 6 to 7 minutes (if that) from the ancient Roman ruins of Les Antiques and Glanum. (These are so close that you can easily miss them if you go too fast!) Les Antiques consist of two well preserved monuments. Glanum is located in a lovely pass at the foot of the Alpilles. Both sites are well worth a visit. We also drove to the famous perched village of Les Baux de Provence (picturesque but a bit of a tourist trap), the village of Eygalieres (nice), and the Pont du Gard (fantastic).
On the downside, we found the hotel staff to be a bit snooty, particularly the owner and the server who took care of us at breakfast
Nevertheless, I would recommend the place in a heartbeat to anyone visiting Provence.
