We stayed for 3 nights in a second floor room on the south side. The view over the terrace and pool toward the Alpilles mountains was gorgeous. The décor throughout the hotel is colorful and fun.
The room was immaculately clean and everything was very well maintained. The room had a split bath which always makes it easier for two people. It was very quiet at night (with the exception of the neighborhood rooster). The shutters can be closed to block light and the south-facing rooms have AC (so you can close the windows to block noise).
Breakfast is served either inside or outside on the terrace. Breakfast on the sunny terrace surrounded by the beautiful garden was one of the highlights of our trip to France. The preserves are house-made and the breads are baked on-site every morning; you can smell the aroma from your room.
The hosts were very accommodating and helpful, even offering utensils for a picnic lunch. We spoke some French, so our conversations with the hosts were in basic French. But there are many English-speaking guests, so language isn’t a problem. There is no laundromat in St Remy but there is laundry service in town or Canto Cigalo provides a laundry service.
It is a short 10 minute walk into St Remy which has many restaurants; the owners of Canto Cigalo will give you recommendations. Do not miss the Wednesday St Remy market! We bought a picnic lunch at the market and enjoyed it at a shady table in the garden of Canto Cigalo.
Canto Cigalo makes a great base for visiting this part of Provence. Roussillon, Pont du Gard, Les Baux, Glanum, etc. are all a short drive away.
We really hope to go back and next time we will stay longer!
