Fodor's Review

Like the views from its interconnected hilltop houses, prices at this Relais & Châteaux property are elevated—but, in return, you get a rarefied stage-set of medieval luxury. A cozy-chic southern touch informs book-filled salons and antiques-and-brocante-trimmed guest rooms, some with terraces looking out onto infinity. Unwind in the heated outdoor pool or indulge in stylish French cuisine in the stone-vaulted dining room. Wine tastings and regional discovery packages

encourage longer stays.

The views here are beautiful and sitting on the terrace eating dinner wonderful. The food was OK. Nothing amazing. At times I felt a little like I was staying in the home counties of england. No french people appeared to be staying here. The rooms were comfortable, but nothing to write home about. Done in the usual 'modern' white minimalist sort of style you have seen in a thousand hotels all over the world. The staff were OK. The hotel was Ok. Just

OK for a night if you're passing through in the area. But nothing amazing. The town itself is a little like staying in a Disney version of Provence. All squeaky clean and seems to be wholly owned by the hotel. So in no way authentic whatsoever.

Romance high above

We've stayed here several times for special occasions, the views are spectacular,built on terraces, the pool on one the dining room and terrace onanoth and the pub on yet another. The buildings occupy about most of this tiny village. Wonderful food and service

May be as close to heaven as you will get in Provence

Although the hotel is a little out of the way it is truely a gem. The hotel setting and views are great. We also had dinner outside and it was a memorable experience more so for the atmosphere then the food which was very good but not cheap (example, 11 euros for the cheese plate). The loudest thing you hear when you are dining are the birds and the views of countryside below are great from the dining area. The room we had was on the top floor of

the original building. It was a real nice room with a terrific shower and bathroom. The bed was also very comfortable. The only problem with the room was the fact it was not air conditioned. Also, if you have loud neighbors you can hear their conversations through the open windows which are close to one another and which need to be opened for air circulation in warm whether. If I were to stay here in the summer, I would opt for one of the air conditioned rooms. The hotel and restaurant staffs were terrific. They even give you a British newspaper at breakfast with a note attached with your name on it and the days weather forecast. Although it is expensive and a bit out of the way, I don't believe there is a more tranquil and lovely setting in all of Provence. I certainly would go back.
