Staying at Le Temps des Olives is a great country house experience, but with all the confort and luxury. The original building dates from 1673 (I uploaded a photo with the inscription) and was expanded in 1811. It has been completely and recently renewed to become a hotel and it looks great and charming. This hotel is very well decorated, the rooms are clean and spacious, the silence during the night is absolute. As it is a small hotel with not many rooms, you get a special attention from the owners themselves. This is the big thing about this place, every morning the couple that owns the place opened a map and showed us the great atractions nearby, the best place to visit and the must sees. Without these precious tips, I would never gone to places like the incredible Pont du Gard, a giant roman aqueduct that is still standing, or the great sunday market at a nearby town. The outstanding views, numerous atractions nearby, beautiful and personal decoration, and this personal attention to guests make this place one of the best country houses I have ever been. And it is a great place to brazilians and other portuguese speaking people, as the owners speak french, english and portuguese very well. I have been there in november, and even during cold weather, it was a great time.
