We turned into this beautiful 18th century built chateau and garden impulsively on our business trip to Gemenos a small town not far from Marseilles. The big oak trees and gorgeously landscaped garden provided a cool place to have lunch. The others guests were quite and had the casualness of returning patrons. Some where by the beautiful pool tucked on... More

Having stayed in the Luberon for a few days sharing a family villa/farm house we then wanted to go to Cassis on the recommendation of others. As it was the first weekend of the French holidays ( 31 July - 1 August ) there were simply no hotels that had space or the facilities that we wanted - pool in... More

But I am reviewing the hotel... An old house built in the 18th century , converted into a hotel in 1932. It apparently was a first class place managed by the same family until a few years ago. Many reviews have stated how the place had collapsed when it came under a new management. I cannot compare as this was... More

A lovely tranquil hotel 20km from Marseille. The room was spacious and the staff very helpful. Has a nice outdoor pool. Wi-fi good. There is s free bus service that takes people to the nearest train station, Aubagne. Would recommend it. Great for a long weekend

Stayed here for a week when I was 7.5 months pregnant. The hotel is in Gemenos, so you really need a car to get there. Pulling up the drive you already feel like you're somewhere relaxing and away from the world. The hotel itself is beautiful, classic, simple but not old fashioned or stuffy- which had been my worry. It... More

This is my first review and despite I travel frequently all around the world I never complain and I am very easy going. This time we have travelled for 10 days around Provence and stayed at Chateaus and had great time everywhere. This was our last stay and the restaurant manager ruined this stay. The hotel itself and location are... More

On returning to the hotel after 2 years and to find new owners, I found them also charming and helpful. The location is first class and after a day touring the region to drive up the driveway is like coming home (to a very grande home!). We missed the welcome from the dog belonging to the past owners, but the... More

The hotel may have had its teething problems when changing hands as other reviews have said, however in our 11 day recent stay it lived up to expectations. As we drove up to the hotel terrace Chopin was being played on their grand piano on the terrace. On another evening an interesting art exhibition took place. The grounds, the building,... More

We've known this place for several years. Actually a close relative lives in a retirement home in Gemenos, so we're used to stay there when we visit her. It is also the perfect place to drive around and visit Marseille and Provence. Gemenos is next to Aubagne, for non-french, this will mean little - so a few words: Aubagne is... More

I don't know how the place was before. But I agree with the general evaluation. You don't get what you would expect for the money you are spending. The bastide is nice, so are the garden and swimming pool. The rooms are just OK (AC is silent, which is not often), but you can hear noise from neighbors. Well, you... More
