It is with pleasure I write of how much we enjoyed our 4 nights at Le Chateau des Alpilles. . from the moment we drove up the stately, tree lined drive to the entrance, on a crisp fall day, we were welcomed by very friendly and helpful staff. The historical Chateau is lovingly cared for in every detail in a quite and elegant way, not pretentious. Our room on the 4th floor corner room, with lots of windows, was very large and comfortable. Lots of space to unpack and comfortable chairs and desk for our tech and camera gadgetry.
We enjoyed delicious breakfast out-of-doors under the leafy trees and the court yard. We booked two dinners at the hotel which I heartily suggest. As it is a destination restaurant and you don't want to miss it. Food was delicious and well presented with spot on service and attentiveness at a very reasonable price. Note, restaurant is closed on Wed. nights. so they booked us a meal in town which was very handy, as there were 10 of us.
The grounds are so lovely and there is a very large pool facility and large outdoor spaces it would be a fantastic summer hideaway. The parking area is fenced and controlled by code access so you have no worries with a rental car and no additional parking fees. The town of St. Remy is within a mile's walk and is very pleasant.
During our visit we had the opportunity to see the "Running of the Bull" festivities and that was fun. The city is out in festival mode and the "fair" comes to town. So it is best to walk to town or park a few blocks from the city center and leave the car. . .
There were 5 couples in our "traveling" group and all would resoundingly agree with my review about how special the Chateau is. . .if you are going to St. Remy and making it home base, you must stay here. . .you will never regret it. PS. our next hotel was 3 nights in Aix-en Provence at the Villa Gallici ($690 per night) and we all agree that Chateau des Alpilles is off the charts better by comparison and at lower price, making it a great value and great experience!
