The pictures and the prices led us to this delightful looking Chateau outside of Aix en Provence, but the location would not lead us back again. The warning of being in an industrial area was shrugged off by my bride and me but, when on the first night, the alarms from someone trying to break into the auto dealership adjacent to our room brought us back to reality. Whilst our room was large (as well as the bath) and quite modern, unless you had a car, as we did, you had nowhere nearby to roam for different meals or sight seeing. In fact, a stroll of the grounds revealed a fetid swamp next to a river(?) at the opposite end of the entry drive. Walking down the highway was too dangerous (as we tried to go to the shopping center a mile away). The staff was very courteous. The meals were a bit too pricey for a so-so meal. Without a car, you have no where to go.
