“A gem in the middle of the Alpilles”
Reviewed June 21, 2009

Our stay at the Balcon des Alpilles could not have been more pleasant and relaxing: the accomodation is superb (the house has the charm of old stones combined with modern comfort), the garden is beautiful (included a heated swimming pool) and all facilitites are available (american fridge to store food and drinks, fruit and deserts / cakes on tap, etc).

Mr & Mrs Gatti are fabulous hosts who are attentive to their guests' wishes: they can provide advice on restaurants, sights to see, visits / entertainments, etc. Mr & Mrs Gatti have managed to build a loyal clientele that comes year after year: the atmosphere of this house is warm and convivial: we had a great time sharing anecdores and games of golf with the other guests during our stay.

Finally a word on the breakfast: Mr & Mrs Gatti were restaurateurs in their previous lives and it is difficult to beat Mrs Gatti's cooking (we would particularly recommend the French toasts and the scrambed eggs).

This hotel is a gem! It is tucked away in the town of Aureille in a lovely country setting. This charming bed and breakfast style hotel has well-appointed rooms, a sparkling pool (see photo) and a delicious very abundant buffet. Madame Gatti is a wonderful hostess. Although the hotel is located in a tiny town, you are within a short drive from many important towns/sights in Provence, including St. Remy, Les Beaux, Auvergne, Avignon, and Aix.

  • Liked — wonderful breakfast buffet. Abondanza!!! Lovely accomodations.
  • Tips/Secrets — Don't be scared away from its obscure location. You are only 20 minutes away from St. Remy.
