I stayed here for one night en route back to a friends villa in the Var.
What an absolute stunner.
The welcome was very friendly.
The hotel is as interesting as the village itself, small under ground corridors (like being in a medieval castle) open up into huge vaulted cellars that have been converted into meeting rooms. Fascinating and it makes the place feel diffferent and special.
The twin room I had was lovely, looking out over a small courtyard, the bathroom was a godsend - no shower cubicle - just a wetroom with a curtain to keep some water at bay - this is so much better than being forced to shower in a tiny cubicle.
I had a wander around the village and drank some coffee with the locals in the late afternoon sun before dinner, it felt homely and just right - sipping on a perfect machiato watching the world go by.
The dinner .... well wow is one way of putting it.
The hostess asked if I wanted to see a menu or just be surprised by the local produce. I said "surprise me".
It was fantastic, 4 courses of some of the nicest food I've ever had - and I've sampled some fine cuisine in my time at Michelin Starred Chefs Tables.
A lovely place that I would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone at all.
