“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2006

It was the second time I had stayed at Les Trois Sources and in no way was it as good as I remembered. I feel that the owners now rely far too much on the beautiful position of the accommodation and in some ways feel that they can sacrifce some aspects of the service given. After staying in four different accommodations on my twelve day trip to France, I was most disappointed with Les Trois Sources. For 130 Euros a night I expect the extra little comforts that make a stay special. Here are some of my gripes.

We were not given any pool towels, so had to use our bathroom ones.

There are not any pool loungers, only upright chairs

You are told not to take any glasses to the pool area, but plastic alternatives are not given.

THe bathroom only contained one bar of soap, no shower gel or shampoo etc

We were not given fresh towels during our three day stay

The owner told us that we could open our windows at night to cool down our room (no air conditioning). He said it would be fine as there were no mosquitoes. I was bitten alive. I beg the owner to put some mosquito nets around the beds or windows.

The breakfasts were just too simple and became monotonous. Each day was exactly the same breakfast and consisted of coffee or tea, literally two mouthfuls of orange juice and a croissant plus two other types of bread. Every other accommodation, all of which were cheaper than Les trois sources had fruit/yogurt/pain au chocolat as well as croissants plus other types of breakfast. For people who don't really like bread there is just no alternative.

We had to carry our suitcases up three flights of stairs with no offer of any help.

Sorry but this kind of service is just not good enough for a 130 Euro room.

I read this message recently and I have hesitated to answer but why not.

We are very sad when people are not happy here. We have been running this b&b for 9 years now and many people return every year. 

Of course one may need something we have not thought of and we gladly give it, when asked, if it is possible.
Some examples: 

For breakfast we serve croissants, different good breads from the village, homemade jams and honey, butter,and real fresh orange juice.

We change towels every two days and there are towels for the pool when people have not their own. 

I  of course help people when they need it though I am fifty seven.  There are two flights of stairs only in this house.

No one has problems with mosquitos here but in exceptionel cases we have little devices to put in the plugs.

We want people to feel happy here and try to improve Les Trois Sources every year.

Fabulous Maison d'hôte near the quaint little village of Bonnieux in the beautiful Luberon. The location is stunning and offers the Provence at its best - vineyards, lavender fields, numerous charming villages close by to explore, rustic and delightful design of the rooms/grounds. The host is very friendly and most helpful. Lovely breakfast included with yummy fresh tartines and homemade jams.
Great for romantics!

This was, by far, our favorite place in two weeks in the South of France. The room was enormous with views of the vineyards and of Bonnieux itself. We had both a large clawfoot tub and a shower. Hot water was plentiful. The breakfast includes great rustic breads, croissants, very good confitures and exceptional coffee with steamed milk. Paul is immensely charming and does speak some English.
We preferred this part of Provence to the more "chic" parts. The rooms are filled with antiques and are very tastefully done.
You are a bit of a drive into town. This might be a difficult place for folks to start from. It was perfect for us as we drove deeper into Provence. It would be an ideal place to launch into the area for day trips. Dining at night might be an issue. We had tried for Le Fournil but were not there on "open nights". I think one needs to be relatively familiar with the roads there in order to drive into other towns for dinner.
