The surroundings and views are incredibly beautiful, as is the manor house, although the patio where we had our lunch lacked that "warm" atmosphere. Having said that, the quality of food made up for this. A nice touch is that half portions are available, roughly at half price. The prawn curry was extremely tasty, as was the spicy beef stew,...

Bass Provence was a little charm of paradise tucked away in the vineyards off the main street leading into down in town.

For some reason we did not realise that there are only three bedrooms in the hotel, but that made it even better. It is basically an historic farmhouse and we had the run of the place for the four nights we stayed. Decanters of port and sherry were placed in the huge sitting room and we could sample as much...

There are 3 spacious suites, with the thatch roof newly done.

You would have noticed a previous post from me regarding shocking service we received at Paulina’s, Rickety Bridge. Well after some argy bargy and misunderstandings between myself and management (as you will see in the previous review), they kindly offered us a weekend in their Manor House so that we could experience the hospitality that, according to them, we should...
