My husband and I stayed at the hotel for 5 nights in October of 2007. I was really concerned about my choice because there weren't a lot of reviews. We were both pleasantly surprised. Our room was on the ground floor with French doors that opened onto a private patio with a wonderful view of the olive trees. The room was small, but other than that I have no complaints. The linens were very nice, the towels in the bathroom were very plush. The bathroom was beautiful, the only thing it lacked was a bathtub, but the shower was great. The room had a small refrigerator that we used for things we picked up at the various markets and then ate on our beautiful patio. The setting was perfect.
The hotel has a HUGE dog. I am not a dog-lover at all, but you couldn't resist this guy. Very friendly and petable. Easily the largest dog I have ever seen!
We ate twice in the restaurant. The first night we did the prix fix menu and it was very good but probably a bit overpriced. The next time we ordered ala carte and really enjoyed it. There are not a lot of restaurants in Graveson, although we found a good hole-in-the-wall pizza place with wonderful owners and we went twice for take-out. We did not have breakfast at the hotel, be sure to let them know in advance if you are not planning on eating in the morning. We prefer stopping at a boulangerie and grabbing a roll and coffee.
The location of the hotel is perfect for exploring Provence. It was just a few minutes drive to San Remy; I wanted to be close so we could arrive at the Wednesday market early. This was our favorite market; we went to several, this being the first, and definitely the best - small enough to walk the entire market yet varied enough that there was lots to see. We also drove to Aix, Le Baux, Avignon - the hotel was very centrally located.
The pool had closed the day before we got there which was fine because the weather was really only warm enough for swimming one day, but we could see the pool grounds and they were lovely.
The memory of sitting in bed looking out over the olive trees was one I think of often, it couldn't have been more beautiful. The staff was friendly and accomodating. I highly recommend this hotel!
