Reviewed October 8, 2012

we arrived in Aigueze over a week into our 200 mile trek along the GR4, GR6 and GR9 from Manosque to Langogne to find this wonderful hotel in a very quaint little town, typical of Provence towns, situated on top of a hill. We always had to climb for our dinner ;-). It was not easy to make a booking from USA, having had to mail a check for 15 euros as a deposit, but it was well worth it. The hotel is around the corner from the cafe, which is situated in the square of the fountain. The room was clean, simple and a wonderful respite from the long days on the trail. We were the only guest, it being late in September, yet they opened the cafe the following morning just for our breakfast - cafe au lait and a baguette, of course. the hotel and the town is really charming, and I cannot recommend both highly enough. the hosts were fabulous and took very good care of us. the cafe across the square from Le Rustic opened for dinner and we were very happy, as there is not much else in the little town, not even a boulangerie.

Two nights in the early part of August at €52 a night plus breakfast (€6.40 each) was a good deal, especially as only booked 2 weeks before. The double room was on the top floor and had basic facilities. No TV but en suite shower, toilet and wash basin, one small bar of soap, towels changed each day; although the shower was the smallest I have been in. Had to open the door so I could lean down and wash my feet. Bed was comfortable although could have done with an extra pillow. There is no dining room in the hotel, nor sitting room. Evening meals were available in three locations, Chéz David is opposite the hotel entrance, Câfe Boucheron opposite the hotel câfe and Le Belvedere at the other end of the village - 500 meters - and so there is a range of tastes to choose from. Breakfast is served at the hotel cafe, keeping the sparrows off the table can make the experience interesting! Bread, jam, honey and butter, choice of coffee, tea or chocolate and a glass of orange juice. The village has some interesting history and the tourist office lady proved very helpful. Three wine caves in the village, managed to try two. Not sure if I am a fan of Cotes du Rhone; or maybe the ones I tried were not their best! We were travelling on a motorbike and so parking was a concern. Found a corner near the hotel and there did not appear to be any problem during the two nights we stayed. If you are in a car, parking is mainly at set car parks away from the centre. There are signs saying no entry at all the village entrances, "except residents" in small print which we ignored. No-one seemed to make any comment. Being in the middle of the town there was a lot of street noise until late. If you like late this is ok, but we prefered to be up and away touring early so not so helpful as the windows needed to be open to keep cool. Temperatures in mid 30c while we were there. There was alot of effort made by people to clean the village each morning quietly. The whole feeling was one of cleanliness in the hotel and village.
This was a great centre for touring the Gorge du L'Ardèche and the area to the north.

We had an early start to a kayaking holiday from St Martin De L'Ardeche and this was the closest hotel that I could find that would accept a one night booking on a Saturday in the middle of July. I emailed the hotel using google translation and always received a really quick response.
The hotel itself is split across two buildings. The cafe being in the main square of Aigueze and the hotel (B & B ), just around the corner away from the cafe. We 'checked' in at the bar with the owner using a laptop and then proceeded to the hotels rooms. This is a very small hotel and do not expect any lifts etc. Our rooms were up the top of a steep flight of stairs. The rooms were charming. Extremely comfortable beds (and thats high praise coming from me who is a notoriously bad sleeper) and our double room was very very large. Had all the basics you'd want - nice shower, sink, dressing table, mirrors, lamps and the very much needed fan. There are no extras in this room - shampoos/hairdryers/tv's etc but you don't really need them. Note - buy a bottle of water before you get to the village as no where sells it unless you pay for a few at the cafe.
There are a couple of nice places to eat there - we only had breakfast at the Rustic cafe and as we were late for our kayaking due to too much wine, we did rush things there however, what we had was great. Nice continental breakfast - lovely fresh croissants breads and jams.
We had some great tapas and cheese board at Le Boucheron which is just across the square and had a fantastic evening meal at Chez David - booking is a must if you want an outside table.
Parking - you can park outside the hotel if you can find a space in the square which is free of charge, or park in one of the designated car parks.
Aigueze itself is a charming French village and if you want to sample the true French way of life - this is it. Do take a phrase book though if your French is limited. I would also recomend the kayaking at the Ardeche and the Crest (better for rapids).
Would we go back - without a doubt!
