Hotel L'Orangeraie is a beautiful property set in an old convent. We stayed for a week in July 2014 and couldn't have been more pleased. We had a large superior sea view room on the 2nd floor which had the most spectacular view of the sea. The bathroom was large with a separate shower and bath. Really hot water and good pressure which can be a problem in older properties. The air conditioning was also really appreciated as the south of France can be very hot in the summer. We were also pleased to find coffee/tea making facilities in the room as well. Plenty of wardrobe and drawer space.
Breakfast was buffet style downstairs (€18) near the beautiful pool area. Typical sort of offerings of both continental style breakfast and a small selection of cooked breakfast bits. Our only complaint would be that the cooked breakfast bits had gone cold on a few of our days there. The girls who served a at breakfast were really helpful.
We ate dinner at the hotel once and it was very good. A very seasonal menu and nice selection of local wines.
The reception staff, Christophe and Sinead, were incredibly helpful and friendly and went out of their way to sort things out for us.
La Croix Valmer itself is only a ten minute walk downhill and you can catch the free shuttle (Navette Gratuite) in town. The tourist information office is there as well. To go a bit further afield like St Tropez etc. you can take the normal bus (Varlib) for €3 one way. We walked down to the nearest beach, Debarquement, twice through the vineyards which was a nice distance like 3km-ish.
We had an exceptional holiday and would definitely recommend this hotel!
