Reviewed September 27, 2012

Tucked away in the woods just minutes from Roussillon and all the other little hill top villages that are there to discover. The owner, Philip, just glows with enthusiasm for the area and is beyond knowledgable on where to eat, what markets to visit and the shortest routes to places to explore. Beds are comfy, bathrooms work, clean and the other quests all where super nice.

We returned for the second year running, for twice as long (10 days). Excellent, comfortable, cool (it was August) room and ensuite shower-room. Perfect home-cooked breakfasts. Gentle breeze usually ruffles swimming pool and surrounding pines. Friendly other guests. Wonderful welcome and hosting by Philippe: makes place both convivial and private, depending on what you want. Cannot recommend it highly enough! (And a perfect part of France)

Room Tip: Both the independent rooms are perfectly places, as are the three suites!

This B&B had nice rooms but with minimal storage space. The breakfasts were very good with home made jam. My wife found the crickets annoying but I slept through them. The spot is not air conditioned and when we were there in late June the temperature was consistently in the mid to high 30's. But I guess that is normal for that time of year. Finding the location was a bit difficult. I located it on Google maps and used that visual location to identify a location on my GPS. A better approach might be to go to Goult and follow the D9 towards Rousillon.

Pleasant hosts, large room - one of two each with own patio in one of several buildings clustered around the swimming pool. Great breakfasts with home-made jams and home made cakes. The sound of the cigales (crickets) was so loud the first night that it kept me awake.

he but was the problem with the deposit which was a real irritation. Clos des Cigales do not take credit cards and we had to wire transfer E85 in February for first of our two nights as a deposit. This we did, with confirmation from our bank that E85 had reached their bank (we paid a $35 fee for this). Phillipe informed us that only E68 had reached their account and that, in addition to the second night's payment, we had to pay the E17 difference. When I questioned this (I had copies of the banks confirmation with me) he knocked it down to E15! This left me with a somewhat sour taste. Note you have to pay in cash.

Philippe and Brigitte could not have been more welcoming and friendly! We were greeted like long, lost friends and immediately made to feel very welcome.

Le Clos de Cigales is less than a couple of kilometres from the centre of Roussillon, a charming hill top town renowned for sitting atop the worlds largest ochre deposit.

Roussillon makes a great base for exploring the Luberon region of Provence, and staying at Le Clos de Cigales meant we came back to peace and quiet after a busy day.

There are 2 bungalows with 2 rooms (which I stayed in) and a couple of other double rooms all clustered around a pool amongst pine trees. Breakfast was served in our room as it was winter and a little chilly to be sitting out near the pool, but that would be a lovely way to start the day in summer. Brigitte makes her own jams and flans and each morning we were treated to a different variation in addition to fresh baguettes, croissants or pain au chocolate.

There is wifi although at the time we were there they had just installed a new router and we were having trouble accessing it from our bungalow. Hopefully they will have sorted that out by now as apart from that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it without hesitation.

A beautiful location, in the pinewoods just about a mile outside Roussillon (easily walkable in daylight along lovely wooded paths - Phillippe will advise) Very central for touring to all the other villages and attractions in the area.
Each room or suite has its own patio, well-positioned for privacy + sunshine, also fridge, two-ring cooker and basic utensils. Microwave available. Ideal for a snack lunch or for feeding young children.
Rooms not large but very clean and airy. Good-sized shower.
Breakfast is a real feast, including Brigitte's homemade jams, a different choice each day, plus a large slice of one of her homemade cakes - and this despite the fact that, at the time of our visit, she was over 8 months pregnant!
This was such lovely, restful place, with very welcoming hosts. We look forward to going back again.
