We spent two nights and really enjoyed our stay. Lovely decorated and clean rooms. Everyone was professional and very welcoming. The courtyard and gardens were immaculately kept and tranquil. We spent many hours enjoying rosé and taking in the beauty of the surroundings. The dinner menu was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the lamb and sweetbread entrees. The breakfast assortment...

Amazing hotel. None of the photographs you will see can do this place justice. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are modern yet charming, and the staff is very attentive. We did a two week trip through the Provence region and stayed at some great hotels, but this was truly the best. It is location just a few minutes walking...

We were fortunate to get a newly renovated room with contemporary decor. Bathroom is well equipped. Our friends stayed at another section and their room needed some updating. Front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was nice but room was understaffed. Hotel has a beautiful garden to be appreciated when weather is good. Hotel offers a shuttle...

The Pigonnet is located on the outskirts of Aix and approached from a private drive leading to an open entrance with classic cars at the entrance. We were greeted with a smile by the English speaking manager who could not have been more welcoming and helpful. We felt important and valued guests. Our room was spacious, clean and with a...

Our room was elegantly appointed. The entire staff was cordial. The breakfast buffet was spectacular as was the view sitting out in the patio. The location has the feel of being in a quiet, country setting but is minutes from the center of Aix.

Our recently visit at Le Pigonnet for a short weekend was rather disappointing. Their garden is lovely and the heated swimming pool OKish despite needing some maintenance, that's all the positive notes about this hotel. We were checked in a very small room (the size you would expect in a mid-range hotel in central London or NYC), we could hardly...

We thoroughly enjoyed our few days in Aix en Provence, walking into town each day (although there is a shuttle bus offered by the hotel). The pool is heated and the gardens are beautifully manicured. You can hide in a corner and read or sun bake by the pool. Our proximity to town made going out easy but the restaurant...

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
