“Perfection on a small scale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2008

The rooms are minimalist, cool and welcoming and the beds divine. The bathrooms are spacious and well appointed. Having aperitifs on the terrace, as night fell, with superb nibbles (works of art in themselves) was an idyllic prelude to a spectacular meal.Breakfast the next morning around the pool with fresh juice, home made jam, a variety of croissants and breads straight from the baker's oven confirmed the impression that we had landed in paradise. It helped that there 9 of us, i.e. we occupied 5 out of the 6 rooms. It felt asif we were in a luxury villa with the most attentive and charming staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. Fontjoucouse has become a byword for pleasure in our little group.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2006

Small but well equipped bedroom,but the air conditioning did not work - during a heatwave.Absolutely excellent staff but unfortunately the dinner was 'haute cuisine' - probably at its best,but way beyond my tastebuds - it was all too rare! Wine list astounding and very well served. Dining room superb,with charisma. (Expensive menu)
Finding the Hotel was a nightmare and required a lot of help as the locals didn't seem to know it!

We are a english famley with 2 boys aged 12 and 13 years. We all sat down to lunch at 12 30 and left the table at 4 45 . Th food was the best ever. I am looking forward to a return trip as soon as posible. All the staff were great with the children and I think they will never forget the experance.

I was on a cooking tour of the area and this is where we were booked it is a small hotel 8 units Not true luxury but everything one would want for a unbeivable stay in the southwest stay in France. The chef and his staff were fantastic. Every meal bter than the last. Would stay again in a minute.
