A really lovely comfortable and quiet hotel which was well situated for exploring many parts of Provence. The owners, Donald and Letticia, were lovely people and could not have been more helpful. The service they provided was excellent. Our en-suite room was very comfortable and located on the first floor above the main entrance but there was no obvious noise. The breakfast was very good and more than enough to start the day. They also told us about all the restaurants in the town. We were also provided with a parking pass in a secure car park in the town centre which, although a few minutes walk away, was very useful and good value for money.
Salon-de-Provence had lots of interesting places to visit including a museum. As it was our first visit to Provence, they gave us some fantastic ideas about what was worth visiting in the area and also the best way to get there. They also told us about some lovely 'off the beaten track' villages that were really well worth visiting; Mouries for the 'olives trail'; Eyguières a medieval village in the hills of the Alpilles and there were lots more besides.
Donald also recommended we visit les Baux-de-Provence which was a fantastic location to visit with hill fort ruins at one end of the scale and at the other end, a superb but very modern 'photographic light show' which was displayed in the caves. There were sufficient restaurants there to satisfy most needs and given that this was an isolated location, the prices everywhere here were very reasonable.
It was also recommended that we visit Arles. This town had plenty to offer all tastes. The medieval history includes museum of Ancient Arles and the Roman arena along with many other worthwhile attractions. Donald said that on our return we should come back through St-Martin-de-Crau if we could. We did and this village had a fantastic arboritum just as you came into the town. It had a lake with swans, water fowl of many descriptions and also several coypu swimming there to.
As we were only on a short break in Provence, we probably would not have seen as much as we did had not the owners of the hotel been so helpful. They went out of their way to assist in any way they could and as with your previous reviewers, I totally agree that they really made our stay very enjoyable. Thank you Donald and Letticia very much. We will be back to see more of the great area you live in.
