“Perfection and beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

We stayed at the Chateaux de Roussan for three days and it is absolute perfection. The hotel is an old historic chateaux that has been fixed up and decorated in beautiful fashion. It is surrounded by a park with lovely trees, ponds, flowers and foliage. The chateaux itself is comfortable, beautiful and lovingly taken care of by a superbly dedicated staff, who were always attentive and friendly. Our suite was situated toward the park and the room was so beautiful, we began to feel like royalty! It is immaculately clean and gorgeously decorated. Their restaurant extends to the outside toward the park and although we only ate breakfast, I can attest to the fact that even that was a lovely experience. The staff was helpful and unfailingly nice. There just simply is not anything I can think of to criticize and I would go back in a minute! I would give it my highest personal rating.

Room Tip: From what I can see, every room faces a beautiful scene and all looked just lovely to me.

Why not be the Compte de Roussan at this wonderful chateau? Certainly the grounds are great, extending so that you can settle at seats as though you are out in the countryside, with little streams rippling past you. Certainly the service is exceptionally helpful and friendly. Certainly the courtyard restaurant is very good quality. But the chateau itself is the most remarkable feature of a stay here. The fact, for example, that they have kept the old library for you to settle in, rather than making it another guest room, is a good indication.

The chateau and park are very beautiful, I wish we had time to stay more than one night.

Staff were extremely helpful.

We had dinner at the restaurant and sat outside as it was so warm. Our waiter was very attentive and made excellent recommendations from the wine list.

Mini bar had everything we needed. Unfortunately the wifi wasn't available the night we stayed.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 'Renaude' which was huge. Has a bath but no shower.

The chateau is a beautiful building in a lovely setting. However, we were disappointed in some of the room amenities for the price (very limited storage, small towels, and shower only hand-held). I was surprised that the tub-caulking needed bleach. The property should also have a swimming pool. We thought the meals were expensive. Fortunately, the bed was comfortable, the location quiet, the AC efficient, the wi-fi good, and the staff was friendly.

Chateau de Roussan is a magnificent french provencial mansion and arboretum property that is almost frozen in time. We were taken with the entire experience. We stayed one night during our Duvine bike tour of Provence and decided to go back and stay one additional night before departing the region. the srvice and food are wonderful (a bit expensive but worth the experience). The wine steward was extremely knowledgeable and friendly - not high brow at all. The hotel is immaculate and 21st century in terms of infrastructure but you feel like you are in the early 19th century - just wonderful. While no pool, water runs all through the property from mountain streams and the grounds are well kept as but deliberately not over manicured to keepthe natural landscpae feeling. It's like an arboretum - the huge Sycamores line the drive and encircle the courtyard. Rarely does a hotel blow me away like thisone did. The coup de graswas herds of sheep getting tended to next door by dogs while the sun set over the field lined with cedars. What's more, you can walk tost remy - a wonderful little city. Truly an authentic Provence experience. Highly recommended out of body experience!

Room Tip: go for the second floor (Premiere etage)

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights at the end of June. We are a family of 5 and booked two rooms. Our rooms were on the second floor. The first room was very large, but had a twin bed for two people. The second one was very dark and much smaller. The beds were all very small, too. The AC did not work properly in the second room. Also, the ventilation did not work in the bathroom. The wifi did not work during the first couple of days.

Considering the international rates the hotel charges, it needs to investment in beds, wifi, better AC, ventilation and also offer room service.

The property is beautiful and well-located, but definitely better options with more comfort are available in Provence for the same price.

How nice to come up the Chateau's long tree-lined drive after a hot day at historic sites and interesting towns. Even better was coming into our air-conditioned room to find comfortable furnishings, well-equipped bathroom and storage, good lighting and outside terraces on two sides of the room. A little disappointed that there was no swimming pool, but we soon cooled off in some of the comfortable chairs set out in the immense garden. A highlight of our stay was dining on the large terrace at the front of the chateau. The food was very good and the setting magical. The staff were all very nice and we enjoyed walking the quiet back lane into the centre of St. Remy for the fantastic Wednesday market.

Room Tip: Book on the ground floor if you want to have ready access to the outdoor terraces and seating.
