Beautiful setting with lots of trails, nice pool, helpful and polite staff. Rooms are "climatisee" which is great for us Americans, with lots of little goodies (slippers, products of the area) awaiting guests in the room. Our room had a terrace with a view of Salon de Provence.
The only things preventing this from being 5 stars are: (1) food is good but not what you would expect for the price, prices being at the "gastronomique" level;; (2) we found another place in Beaume de Venise (Clos de Saint Saourde) that we will also be reviewing, that was a somewhat better value (albeit no air conditioning, which might be worth the difference in price in midsummer
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Perched on the rocky outcrops of Salon-de-Provence, a tiny Provence town, which is ideally located to explore everything this delightful area has to offer, there is a tranquil spot where time would appear to have stood still. This 12th century abbey in the hearth of twenty hectares of Provencal gardens and garrigue offers spectacular views of the Alpilles Valley and the countryside surrounding Salon-de-Provence. The rooms still bear traces of the Cistercian monks who once occupied the abbey and boast a decor that blends charm and authenticity and provides a calm and restful atmosphere. You will be delighted with the hotel's attentive service and the culinary delights served in both restaurants which offer delicious dishes based on seasonal local ingredients. ... more less
