This hotel is almost perfect - we stayed here for 4 nights, and were made to feel like freinds of Jaen-Claude and Phillipe, not as paying guests. It was as though we had ever been there before, but were made to feel so welcome - but not in an obtrusive over-the-top sort of way.
The only things that I can find to say against the Hotel are no fault of the owners - these are all to do with the location - it is about 20 minutes walk - uphill - out of the town, further than it appears on the map, and the hotel is on a fairly busy road, which means that the garden gets quite noisy.
The garden is where you have breakfast, a very relaxing affair, in the front of this 19 century villa .
The room we had was air conditioned, but also has a real opening window overlooking the pool, which is a modest size, very clean, with a few sun-beds.
There are 15 (I think) rooms with a few self-catering apartments. There is no lift, which might be an issue for some people. There are no tea making facilities in the room, but there is a fridge / minibar stocked with reasonably priced cans of soft drinks / beer. This small hotel is very popular with all nationalities and Jean-Claude speaks excellent English.
Although there were children staying there, I am not sure that this would be suitable for all youngsters.
