“whow! ... What a place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

We stayed for a booking of three nights there and were so happy with the place that we decided to go on with another one. So we had one more day to explore the wider surrounding area leading us to Cassis, Aix-en-Provence, Marseille and the Grand Canyon of Provence (Gorges de Verdon).

In fact the owners of Le Clos Geraldy put immediately a spell on us, The charming atmosphere, Baiko the "sympa chien" german sheperd, the comfortable, old vintage decorated room with spacious bathroom, the wonderful outside facilities and plants placed in a huge garden and the charming advises from Thierry and Myanne during the common breakfast where and how to go to spend the day, narly overwhelmed us. We know and read that not everybody is amused about the "less intimity", which was for us in no way pushy or overbearing. They both found the correct and authentic distance and proximity.
At the end we felt like leaving good old friends, Thanks to the two of you for hosting us and making our week of vacation.

We only stayed for one night but very much appreciated the tastefully decorated room, the warm welcome from Anne and Thierry and the delicious breakfast. We would certainly recommend to family and friends.

My wife and I spent one night here at the start of a 3000km excursion through southern France. We were warmly welcomed and given excellent advice for exploring the town and eating well. The tranquil and beautifully landscaped grounds provided the ideal setting for a restorative interlude before continuing our long journey.

There are several reasons to stop in Le Clos Geraldy: in this place you feel as if you are at home, the warm atmosphere given by Thierry and Anne, the relaxing ambience 24h, home made breakfast, rooms furnished with spiritual taste..
And the most important is that you can switch off your brains and fully rely on Thierry in subject where to go and what to see in Provence!
I call this place "Paradise on earth"

We stayed at the Clos Geraldy for 3 nights and its a shame we did not stay longer as the hosts and property were fabulous!
Its very quiet and peaceful, there is only 3 rooms so it would never be crowded. Thierry and his wife were so nice and welcoming, it really felt like our home.
The clos Geraldy is close to St maximin which has nice restaurants and supermarket, close to the motorway so easy access too. We went with some friends and are now looking in our calendars for next year! Thank you both very much :-)

Le Clos Geraldy concept is effectively to propose Quietness with only 3 rooms i.e never more than 6p, in a large place (1Ha) surrounded with Wineyards, Lavender busg=hes and Olive trees. Our location, in St Maximin is also as you say an interesting as it is at 2' from center Town, 30' from Aix and Marseille, 40' away from Beaches...We were pleased to welcome you and will be for next year of course. thanks for your comments.

My wife and I spent a truly enjoyable week at Le Clos Geraldy in May 2013.
We felt at home from the moment we arrived. Thiery guided us to Le Clos Geraldy by phone late at night and then greeted us with a warm smile.
We always slept well. The room was quiet, and it met all of our needs ... very comfortable beds, large shower, double sinks, good water pressure, excellent wi-fi.
The setting was peaceful and beautiful, and we loved the view through the French doors onto the patio, lovely garden and inviting swimming pool.
We especially enjoyed the delicious and abundant breakfasts and the interesting company of the four other guests.
Both Myane and Thiery were wonderfully warm and friendly hosts. Our vacation was much better than we had expected because of their recommendations of places to visit and dine.
We could not have asked for anything more, except to have stayed longer.
Thank you, Thiery and Myane!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and would have spent more if there was time. The room was very clean and bright, the bed very comfortable, the bathroom spacious. You are surrounded by a very large peaceful garden with fragrant flowers, an outdoor place to sit and relax and a large pool. In the morning you wake up to a very tasty filling breakfast. The owner Thierry and his wife Anne are very warm and friendly and will help you with directions for places to see and restaurants to visit. Thierry even rescued us after we got a little lost in St Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume! Wonderful hosts and a beautiful place to stay.
