We booked the hotel after reading a superlative presentation, with the excellent Provence menu, and specifically the unique flower stuffed zucchini. The hotel is on a lovely, quiet street in Villeneuve-les-Avignon, at a short pleasant walking distance to a bus stop, to take the bus into Avignon proper, to the grand cathedral. For all our four days of our stay, we parked the car in the hotel front yard, though they also have a garae, but both spaces are completely secured, so we left most of our luggage in the vehicle. All the spaces in this hotel are extremely attractive, with the most elegant, yet simple French taste and flare for littlest detail. Our room was large enough, modern furniture, with an excellent bed and finery, well appointed bathroom and a balcony surrounded by greenery, overlooking the gardens and the fabulous swimming pool. The almost vast dining room opens into the opulent gardens and breakfast is a delightful affair, where everything that makes French cuisine famous is available, so people tend to stay longer at their tables, just for the sensuous pleasures of looking, eating, chatting as the sun bathes all in more beauty. At dinner time, we could have had anything, except the much talked about zucchini, as it was too early in the season. We were so charmed by the prettiness and comfort we found here, that we decided to spend an entire day just by the heated superb swimming pool, walking back and forth through the gardens, just relaxing and taking in all that beauty.
The service is impeccable, with professional people who will respond to any need, starting info for local transportation, sites, hours, you name it. We do not know anything about their fitness facilities as we did not inquire, but for swimmers and outdoor passionate, "la piscine" is perfect. All prices were reasonable and we will definitely love to repeat the stay at this jewel of Provence.
