The most comfortable bed ever. Eric, the owner, is a professional chef and makes a pretty damn good breakfast (in addition to being a fabulous host). We were fighting off a cold by the time we arrived in Arles, and Eric brought us wonderful honey tea every evening (we stayed 2 nights). That honey tea literally cured my cold.
The newly remodeled bath is spacious, beautiful with the nicest toilet paper ever (seriously, they smelled like roses)! But back to the bed. The bed was the most comfortable bed I slept in during our 2wk cycling tour of Provence. The bed linen was so nice I asked Eric where I could find a set for myself (alas, he doesn't know either). The room isn't spacious or small, just perfect really. I felt like we were staying in a warm little cocoon!
The location is perfect, within the walls of the city yet in a quiet and authentic residential neighborhood, and literally right around the corner from Arles' incredible Saturday farmer's market. Internet, long distance phone calls and AWESOME breakfast included!
