“Peaceful location, very relaxing.”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

This hotel is set in a rural spot overlooking a meadow where you will see goats, horses and chickens roaming. It is lovely to sit on the balcony, extremely peaceful. Food is good, sometimes very good. Receptionist speaks good English and is helpful and friendly. Rooms are clean and comfortable.

Whether it was the end-of-season tristesse, the darkening evenings or the fact that guests were very few, this hotel seemed sad. Vast public rooms are filled with ill-assorted drollerie, mis-matched furniture and an odd collection of antique agricultural equipment but even all this scarecely fills the gloomy, uninhabited corners of this architectural agglomeration.

On the other hand, bedrooms are large and pleasant, and good to work in or relax in.

There's a pool, and a covered jacuzzi.

Staff seem few, and you must seek them out if you're looking for a pre-dinner drink. Food is very good, but served in a lifeless restaurant. A little background music might have helped, and a few more smiles from staff.

I felt i needed to shake off the feeling of doom and lifelessness, and was very glad to leave.

We stayed here for two nights as part of a cycling holiday. The hotel is in a lovely, peaceful location, and well furnished. We had a large and comfortable room which was spotlessly clean and had a small roof terrace. It could have done with a ceiling fan or air conditioning as it was very hot. Breakfast was fairly typical French, but there was a selection of homemade yoghurt and cheese, plus fruit as well as the standard bread and croissants. We had their half board menu for dinner which meant no choice. We felt the hotel was a little let down by its evening service, this may have been that because it was only a quarter full. The woman doing the serving didn't have much polish, nor did she seem to understand that gin and tonic should have ice in it (didn't get any, even when I asked). The evening meal was good quality food, locally sourced.
Lovely to relax beside the swimming pool, although I didn't 'get' the swimming pool, why it had to be modelled on a Caribbean lagoon is beyond me. The indoor pool is in a conservatory type building and didn't look very inviting. Didn't use the gym, sauna or tennis courts. We would go back.

A group of classic car owners stayed here for 3 nights in September, When we arrived the afternoon sun was blazing into our lovely room facing the pool and countryside, we couldn't believe our luck. The large balcony enjoyed the setting sun and we enjoyed the pool. The staff were most helpful and attentive, the lovely Korean receptionist spoke good English and was very enthusiastic. The food too was excellent. The surrounding coutryside is stunning, a visit to the Gorges de Verdon is a must. The local village of Tourtour is charming. After exploring the village it is easy to while away an hour or two in one of the bars. We were sorry we could not spend another day or two there.

Room Tip: Make sure you have one with a balcony over the pool

What a lovely hotel. We arrived after a day of cycling uphill in headwinds and high temperatures so headed straight for the pool. Don't be put off by the towels on the sun loungers as these are not reserved by other guests Benidorm style - they are provided by the hotel. This is a lovely touch and was very welcome.

The evening meal is served to a relatively tight schedule and is a set menu without choices so although the food was good it meant dinner was less of a relaxed and flexible affair than it could have been. They were able to take tastes into account a little though, serving a plain salad rather than a shellfish one when asked, for example. The food was mostly simple but with the freshest local ingredients it was very tasty. Breakfast was great with a selection of cereals, bread, fruit, cheese etc.

Our room was spacious and comfortable. I would have liked to have air conditioning because it was baking hot - at night on the terrace we could still feel the heat radiating up from the ground. Sun shining directly into the room all day meant the curtains had to remain closed the whole time which made the room quite dark but really, if that's your only complaint I think you're doing ok!

This was a truly amazing hotel. A refurbished abbey which has retained some of its original features but has been modernised.

The pool area is so relaxing and calm, with gorgeous views across the fields

The staff are friendly and helpful with fantastic sized rooms and lovely food.

A fantastic place for a relaxing break, or as a base to explore the wider area

We stayed for 2 nights during August, as part of a cycling holiday.

Our room was lovely - large, clean, spacious and light with a comfortable bed and view of the pool and the countryside beyond.

It's in a secluded spot which is lovely and peaceful, the pool area is particularly special and was a great place to relax. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, even making great pains to understand my pigeon French and helped us to find the footpath to Tourtour (takes about 40 minutes to walk there). The food was nothing special, but decent.

The building itself is quite old - beware there are a lot of stairs to negotiate if you're on the first floor.

If staying for more than a few days I'd have possibly got bored as it's really quite isolated - but a splendid place to get away from it all for a few days.

Evening on the balcony where they served dinner could get a bit breezy - take a jacket or jumper out with you if you plan on eating late (even in August).

You'll get a mobile phone signal if you're lucky and stand on one leg!
