We chose La Gardy because it is perfectly situated for a holiday in the Alpilles region of Provence. It has every facility you could want, but without unecessary frills. Breakfast is optional so we ended up self-catering with supplies from the nice nearby village of Eyragues. The rooms have air-conditioning (essential in August) and there is a nice pool and a summer kitchen for informal meals or BBQ. Stephanie and Ernesto are delightful and accommodating, and speak very good English. There was no problem if we wanted to just spend the day by the pool, and after 5 days it felt like home - we were very sad to leave!
