We are a family of four (two children age 5 and 1) and stayed at Odalys Les Sources de Manon for two weeks in July.
The apartment was fairly clean when we checked in although one of the pots in the kitchen was dirty and there was very dirty under the beds. The apartment was very practical with two rooms upstairs and a combined living room/ kitchen downstairs. There is a dishwasher in the kitchen which was very nice. The small garden to the apartment is very good and private as it is closed by a hedge. However, there is a great difference in the location of the apartments – we had a perfect spot overlooking the small pool and with evening sun but some of the apartments was overlooking the parking lot with very little privacy.
The complex itself is very good as it is a fenced area where the children can run freely. And although the place seemed fully booked when we were there, we did not experience any major crowds at the two quite small pools.
The staff was polite but very unhelpful and we only met one member of the staff who could speak English at a conversation level. The WIFI is of very poor quality – in the two weeks we stayed there the WIFI worked for a total of 5 days and even when it worked the quality was very poor. One nuisance of the place is that everything comes at an extra charge – if you want television you pay, WIFI you pay, laundry you pay (quite a lot - 6 euro and another 4 for drying), towels you pay … and since the place isn’t exactly cheap to begin with, it’s a source of irritation.
The location of the Les Sources de Manon is good with Vallon Pont D’arc in easy walking distance but still secluded from the town. The town of Vallon Pont D’arc is a mixed experience – it caters 100% to tourists and they come in droves every day! It is a small town but there are people everywhere and most of the shops in town are selling tourist-stuff. That does not mean that the town is without charm – it isn’t. There are nice cafes, decent bakeries and a supermarket. But don’t expect to be alone!
Finally, be aware that it takes time to go anywhere from Vallon Pont D’arc – the beautiful mountainous landscape surrounding the town adds half an hour to all journeys before you reach the major roads thus making trips to nearby cities such as Orange, Nimes and Avignon take around one and a half hours.
