Although this hotel has lovely grounds and certainly has some character (we enjoyed a musical presentation by local gypsies), we were sorely disappointed in almost every aspect of our stay. The price way exceeds the quality of the accomodations and the same can be said for the dining room. At 5 start prices, one would expect soft sheets, luxurious bathrooms, and great service. Instead, the sheets were like burlap (really, they are made from raw linen which the proprietor insisted is deluxe in France, but we've traveled many times in France and have never encountered such uncomfortable sheets). The bathroom was set into an attic space and felt like a cave or a hovel. Dinner was unimpressive and astronomically priced. As far as activities go, I had inquired ahead of time to ensure that there were bicycles for us to use in exploring the camargue, but they brought out two broken bicycles for my husband with flat tires and broken brakes. In the end, I had to go for a bike ride alone because they had no bike to fit my husband (an average sized man). My son and I decided to go horseback riding. They sent us to the stables about a mile away, with no ride there and no ride back. It's OK, we don't mind walking, but at a 5 star priced boutique style inn, one would expect to be offered a lift to the stable for which one is paying an additional high price to ride their horses. The walk past angry looking bulls, through mosquito infested pastures was OK in one direction, but a little old on the return trip. We stayed in many lesser priced places on our trip through Southern France and Spain that made us feel much more pampered and welcome.
