We were guided to Maison Gonzagues and hosts Stephane and Martine through Provence Reservation Day Tours. The stay was truly one of the highlights of our May 2011 trip.
After several days in Paris, we embarked on a tour arranged by PRDT. Cotignac was an unfamiliar place, but listed as a stop along the way. We were so worried about our late arrival - but were met warmly by Stephane who expertly parked our car (as we were causing some chaos by going the wrong way!). He and his wife, Martine, escorted us to our gorgeous room. After some time to settle, we headed downstairs for what we expected to be a simple dinner. What a surprise for us! This 5 course meal prepared by Stephane and Martine was by far one of the best meals of our 2 weeks of travel throughout France.
I'd consider us to be seasoned travelers - but I've never stayed in a more beautiful location with more gracious hosts. My heart warms every time I think of our stay. If our travels take us back to France - Cotignac and Maison Gonzagues will definitely be on our list.
