We stayed in Alegria for 1 week in October 2006. We received a warm welcome by both the friendly owners, Dieter & Cindy and their cute little boy, Luca.
We stayed in the family suite, which has a large and lovely bedroom, 2 bathrooms (walk-in showers) & another bedroom with 2 single beds (ideal for children). All bedrooms are nicely decorated, each in a different colour. It has to be said that everything is very clean!!!
The property is surrounded by lots of olive trees. They make their own olive oil, by the way! There is a swimming pool, which we didn't use, given the time of year. Other facilities: a hammock, badminton area, Jeu de Boules.
Breakfast was served outside on our first day, since the weather was still nice. All the other days, we enjoyed breakfast inside. The breakfast is served in a very personal, stylish, creative & unique way. We absolutely loved this, because most of the food is home-made, organic and most of all...fresh! We loved the jams, bread & olive oil (we bought their home-made olive oil on our day of departure). They also serve little surprises, which make you look forward to next day's breakfast. Really lovely! Also, they use a variety of styles in plates & cups.
There is a fridge with drinks and a coffee machine, etc. by the pool side.
They prepare dinner (Table d'hote) once or twice a week. We enjoyed dinner one night, and we absolutely had lovely food & wine, in a great atmosphere, and we had great fun with all the other guests & the owners!
Although Aups is quite a small village, there is enough choice in restaurants where you can go for dinner.
Alegria is located in a very quiet area, in the centre of the Provence. If you want to get away from it all, this is definitely the place to go! The owners are lovely, warm people. I understood that it is their 4th season since the opening, and one can feel that they work very hard to make their guests feel very comfortable during their stay. They really put their heart & soul into it!
We definitely will go back, but this time during early summer to enjoy the swimming pool!
