My wife and I sort of stumbled on this place. It was early evening and we were tired from our long drive from Nice, and didn't have reservations anywhere. So we were prepared to take what we found. What we found was a pretty, tranquil oasis of charm and comfort five minutes from the hillside village of Menerbes (10 minutes to La Coste; 20 minutes to Rousillon). They even offered us a deal on our room that we didn't ask for! (Not the best business practice, but still much appreciated). Large and comfortable with a nice big patio overlooking the gardens. I was really worried about the price of dinner that evening because we ordered glasses of champagne without knowing the cost (the same as served on the Concorde!)--and they didn't give us a check when we finished--just a mention that it would be added to our bill at check out. No worries--the fantastic meal for two with that champagne plus a nice bottle of wine was under 100 euros. The enormous pool here is one of the prettiest in the South of France--just the place for a quiet afternoon after walking the hill villages. The grounds are pure provencal charm. When I told the proprietor that the front desk had told me breakfast was included in our rate, he removed the charge instantly without so much as a frown. When I asked for a corkscrew to open the bottle of wine I'd bought in town, they not only fetched one but opened the bottled and got us two wine glasses. Whoever says the French are arrogant and unfriendly has never had the chance to meet the folks who run this place. I love it!
