This was our second stop on our cycle tour of Provence. I chose this hotel because of it’s proximity to Vaison La Romaine, and le Beffroi was fully booked. I was extremely happy with this choice. The hotel is well run, the managers are lovely and very friendly, and very forgiving of my horrible attempt at speaking French! The room was clean and simple, with a large balcony that looked onto the gardens then onto Mount Ventoux. It could use with a little decorating TLC though, especially the bathroom, but it was clean. There was no AC in the room, which made sleeping uncomfortable and the bed was hard and lumpy. The hotel is situated on a large piece of land, with a swimming pool. It is a 15 minute walk up to le Crestet, which is a beautiful village, and worth a look. The breakfast was a typical French affair, with a large pot of very good coffee, pastries, bread, jams, cereal, cold meat and cheese and juices. And you eat outside in the sunshine looking onto the most beautiful view. The dinners were very good also, three courses on offer and they changed over the 3 nights we were there. The woman who is “in charge” of the restaurant is great, very personable and efficient and willing to get translations of menu items that were not in my French book! They also have a decent wine list, as expected in France. It was a fantastic find, I think it would be helpful to know some French or bring a good phrase book. Oh, there is free wi-fi, just get the WEP key from the front desk, and the desk also has hairdryers. It is not luxurious, but it is clean and friendly with good food and a great atmosphere. And for the price, you can’t beat it. I would definitely recommend it.
