This Logis hotel was not our first choice but that turned to our advantage. The hotel is a multi-floor building with a maze of small winding corridors. Our room was on the top floor, overlooking the lake, with an amazing private terrace. The room was large with two queen size beds and an assortment of "antique" French rustic style furniture and cosy knicknacks. Large cupboard and plenty of drawer space in the huge sideboard. Large modern bathroom, tv, and tea/coffee facilities completed the list of facilities. As the room was able to accommodate 4 people, we had an abundance of towels and washmitts which was a pleasant change.
The restaurant overlooks the lake and the food was excellent, with plat de jour, set menu's or a la carte available.
There seems to be a lot of staff as they do all their own laundry/ironing on site and they are all very friendly, although English is not widely known but they are chatty all the same.
Note: the place is teeming with cats and dogs of all varieties who seem to have free run of the hotel, although not the rooms. My partner is allergic to dogs but strangely was not affected at all. If you have pets, you will feel at home instantly - look out for the absolutely huge tortie cat with the glaring green eyes!
Overall, this was an excellent choice and Bauduen is tiny village at the end of the road, so fairly quiet. It has good family facilities and I would guess that in summer its a busy spot for sailing etc.
A great place to stay, plenty of twisty roads and lakeside resorts to visit. On top of the plateau towards Moustiers are the lavender fields and the scent is glorious. There are plenty of viewing spots and panoramas around the lake. Take your time, you can't rush on those roads, and watch the weather, it changes in minutes!
