Since we're the only tour group welcomed to this exclusive establishement during our group's stay, you will always feel like you are truly in an oasis of peace and quiet at the pools, the bar and restaurant and in the gardens.

Ideally located in the heart of historical St. Remy de Provence with full access to all the shops, cafés and art galleries, there is no better way to complete any trip to Provence than by staying in the most beautiful hotel in town. A historical Provençal farmhouse that was acquired by the current owners in 2000, the hotel has been completely renovated over the last two years into a boutique hotel establishment that offers all of the trimmings and creature comforts desired while traveling abroad --all to provide you with the utmost in comfort in your room, in the gardens and at both swimming pools.

The spectacular gardens serve as a tranquil place to enjoy an afternoon glass of wine, read a book or simply admire the colorful gardens and view of the Alpilles while lying on a lounge chair under an aged old tree breathing in the scents of Provencal flowers. Or, enjoy one of the 2 large swimming pools to refresh yourself after a day out and about discovering Provence during our group activities and excursions.

There is NEVER ANY HOTEL HOPPING on any Off the Beaten Path Tours. All Tours are home-based, meaning we stay at 1 hotel for the entirety of the tour.
"Loved the optional bike ride, the dinners, especially the first night's dinner playing petanque and having dinner at the Chef's home. We thoroughly enjoyed all of the hiking/walking activities and staying in one hotel for the entire trip. Thanks for a great week!!" Russ & Mary Gentile, Jacksonville, FL (Provence Tour)
"Thank you for a wonderful time! Our guide was a delight; very knowledgeable and friendly. I loved the calanques, cassis village and the cooking classes. Marc was very charming and his family villa stunning. This was an excellent way to discover Provence! Thank you again!" Gail Janes, Washington D.C. (Provence Tour)
