A friend and I recently did a self-guided cycle trip in Provence (the trip organiser is Cyclomundo). The trip took us to different hotels every night. On the 3rd night, we stayed in Hotel Des Pins in Bedoin.
Mt Ventoux is one of the itinerary on day 3, and it did not disappoint ! Unfortunately, we were caught out by the weather (rain, strong wind and chill). By the time we got to Chalet Reynard (1300m), we were soaked and I was feeling too cold to descend (to continue the ascend in the strong chilly wind would be another type of madness). We rang Hotel Des Pins, and the owner then came in his rescue van to collect us and our bikes. For that, I am eternally grateful.
When I arrived at the hotel, I was blown away. The room we've got is tastefully designed like a loft apartment.The room is clean and spacious, with toilet and bath on the 2nd level, a direct access to the garden, and the beds are very comfortable. There are hammocks, table tennis table, spa and an inviting pool - none of them I've had a chance to enjoy as it was still raining (I know, Provence ?! unbelievable :D).
We had dinner in the hotel restaurant, which was full and I will tell you why. The wine was beautiful, the food was gorgeous, the cheeses are quality and the bread is the best I've had in Provence (and most of Paris). Breakfast was included in our stay, and it certainly lived up to expectations. I was delighted by the freshly picked cherries at the fruit bar !
I've added photos with my review, and I hope they show you how lovely Hotel Des Pins is. Although I didn't know it before then, Hotel Des Pins is exactly what I needed after Mt Ventoux !
