Having left it a bit late to book a good boutique hotel (but affordable) in Provence over a UK bank holiday and half-term we were directed to Les Remparts in Beaume de Venise by a different guest house. Its newly opened.
The guesthouse is in an old town-house in the centre of Beaume des Venise. Its been beautifully renovated into a 5 room B&B with a small pool (really rather chilly in June) and outdoor terrace. Our room was lovely, high-ceilinged with a little balcony with views over the road and into the countryside with views of Mount Ventoux. Antique lattice work doors lead into the bathroon which overlooks the outdoor terrace. It's one of their smaller rooms but a really good size with antique furniture. There is no air conditioning but thick walls and a good breeze kept the room cool enough in June although did let in quite a lot of insects.
The manager was extremelly friendly and helpful and provides the best breakfast I have ever had in France, with the home-made yoghurt being a real highlight. She is also able to provide hints and tips on where to go as well as book resturants for dinner - L'Oustalet in Gigondas was fabulous.
There is a garage for parking for a couple of cars and on street parking outside.
On the down sides, its a new place so a few things arent quite finished for example the shower over our bath didn't have a wall hook (it looked like they had tried based on the hole) and there isnt an honesty bar or fridge to store drinks if you want to hang out by the pool
