I stayed here for business and booked the place totally at random. I was not disappointed at all. This hotel screams class from every pore, beautiful decor, attentive staff, excellent cocktails, relaxing beautiful gardens, top class restaurant and comfortable spacious rooms. I had a standard room and I'm unsure of what other reviewers are complaining about - the same money...

The exceptional hotel staff and the beautiful public spaces and grounds made this a very special one-night stay. We wish we could have spent a few nights. It was a comfortable but classy experience. The Bar has a dark, rich decor with a friendly bartender, great background music, and seems to "hug" you while you relax. The restaurant is formal...

Location is very good, staff friendly, room was small and basicly furnished. Only tried the bar snacks and these were average only, bordering on poor but, few sampled because of the unwarranted high pricing policy. Grounds are pretty but small, parking good, pool area is modest. There was a lot of noise from building activity in adjacent properties on all...

Yes, this hotel whispers luxury from the moment you enter to be greeted by staff in suits and blazers, who speak English well, and escort you to your room. We had a room with a view of the gardens and Mont St Victoire. The room was a decent size, but the best part was the bathroom; I would love to...

If you're willing to pay up for a premium room you will have a lovely room with lots of space. Otherwise, rooms are small and not special. But that's largely compensated for by the loveliness of the public spaces and the grounds. Park-like setting with wonderful pool and outdoor bar. As pastoral as the setting is, the hotel is actually...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An 18th-century Provencal mansion in beautiful floral gardens, Hotel Le Pigonnet is a secluded hotel just outside the centre of Aix-en-Provence. Promising a peaceful Eden with a grand gated entrance and classic facade framed by elegant Genoese-style towers, it offers a gourmet restaurant, a club-like bar and a Moroccan-styled lounge. The crackle of logs or the songs of cicadas provide the seasonal soundtrack by the fire or on the summer terraces with views over the garden to Mount Sainte Victoire. Each individually-styled room at Hotel Le Pigonnet is rich in Provencal decor and furnishings and has a warm, homely ambience. Hide away in one of Hotel Le Pigonnet's garden nooks on a comfy chair and soak up the country views. Cool off in the pool or relax in a shady area complete with an attractive stone statue. Enjoy bistronomic dining in the restaurant where the cuisine is modern French. ... more   less
