I recently stayed at the Park Suites in Rousset, France. We had a 3 bedroom villa. It is very well appointed for most part. It is set on 2 stories with a cathedrale seeling. It does offer a small kitchennette with a hotplate, a microwave, dishwasher and enough cookware, plates and glasses for 8 people to the villa. Each room had a queen size bed and a double sofa bed in the living area. We were 3 couples and found it very accommodating and comfortable. We also had 2 full bathrooms which is very handy for a 3 bedroom.
You can purchase from the front desk the start kit for the kitchen, however you can go a city called "Trets" where there is a supermarket to purchase the necessary supplies, or you can bring it from home too. Also, whithin walking distance is a wonderful bakery. For those that want a quick bite there is a all you can eat chineese restaurant again walking distance and also a McDonalds' restaurant accross the road. They do not serve breakfast there. There is a small supermaket within walking distance... but you will get a better selection of food in "Trets" which is aprox. 15 minutes drive from the hotel.
Even if I found our stay comfortable, with a wonderful view of the mountain "Sainte-Victoire" from our balcony, our room windows were facing the road which is very noisy if you want your window open. There is A/C in the villa, but only in the main room... so if you don't mind sleeping with your doors open and your window closed, then it is much better... close your blinds too, it helps reduce the noise pollution for your well deserved sleep.
Lots of wineries in the area, so if you like wine tasting, best place to be. We visited Cannes and St-Tropez aprox. 1h20 minutes away on great toll highways... wonderful road system in France. Also visited Nime and Avignon aprox. 1h30 minutes the other way... if you like the sea, visit "La Ciotat"... very nice and quaint village on the sea, aprox. 1 hour south of the hotel. Aix-en-Provence also a very nice city with lots of variety of restaurants near la Rotonde aprox. 15 minutes away. You can get from the Marseille airport to the hotel in aprox. 40 minutes with no traffic... and the TGV-Aix-enProvence train station aprox. 25minutes.
If you like hikes, lots to do around that area as well... Mont Sainte-Victoire has alot to offer. Great bicycle trails too all around the wine region.
The hotel does offer complimentary WI-FI in the lobby area only... sometimes we were able to get it from our balcony.
We paid for our villa to be cleaned... now they only come every 2 days to my surprise... I thought it would have been every day...but all was good. They did change our bed linen and also cleaned the washroom and replaced our towels at that time. Guests are responsible to keep the kitchen area clean and it is your responsibility to leave it clean as well.
I would stay there again and would recommend the hotel if you want good value for the money. I would not recommend if you want to relax as it does get noisy during the day as the road does carry alot of traffic.
