This auberge was a highlight of our trip because of its wonderful location under cliffs in a large canyon reminiscent of some of the smaller canyons in the American West. We climbed to the Fort de Buoux, the remnants of a medieval town, at the top of the opposite cliff.
We ate at the restaurant one night and the food was very good. Breakfast was average. Although the guidebook said they only took half pension, I asked if we could take breakfast and dinner only the first night and just pay for the room after that. Amelie said that would be fine. Since we wanted to travel around the area we wanted to eat breakfast and lunch out. We ate our picnic supper on the table in front of our room. French dinners are generally too large and too late at night for us.
The room was very simple, kind of rustic but of a fair size, in a 14th-century stone building--it had a bed, private bath and a table--just fine for us. Amelie said the stone buildings ranged in age from about the 14th through (I think) the 19th or 20th centuries. It was dry, so no odors of mold that a previous reviewer noted.
We stayed 3 nights. Although the roads are very winding, it was a pretty central location for visiting Bonnieux, Lacoste, Oppede-le-Vieux, Isle-sur-la-Sorgue and Roussillon. The auberge had plenty of room for parking. It also has a big pool--it was too cool for us to swim but other guests used the pool.
