We spent 3 nights at this hotel in September. The staff were lovely and very helpful. The accommodation what you would expect for an Abbey. Sadly, there were a few things that let this hotel down. When the room next to ours was occupied, the plumbing was very noisy as the water from their shower ran away. We ran out...

Location is tranquil. Historical restoration of the property is very sympathetic, making it quite unique. Food was spectacular. Views from dinning patio area are incomparable. My only wish would be that the sign out front were better lit.

Although we only had time to spend one night at this serene location with its panoramic view to the south and the gorgeous, rocky mountain behind to the north it's easy to see why the monks chose this peaceful setting for their Abbey. We found the restaurant to be convenient and the staff congenial. The next time we pass through...

No issue with the rooms. I've been staying at this hotel for nearly twenty years. A few years ago it was sold and much of the charm of the dining room and public areas was stripped away. The dining room in particular has suffered. While never an extensive menu, there was plenty to choose from and the kitchen made special...

The hotel site and buildings are absolutely stunning. Down a narrow little lane and very quiet. Site has a wonderful view from the patio and it is very typically French.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel the food was good but the price of wine or a drink was way to high. The problem is they know they can charge it because it is a long way from town once you get settled in. The grounds should be better taken care of also.

This is a 12th Century Abbey and is what you would expect. The room are quaint, if odd shaped and the corridors have low ceilings so you need to duck a lot.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perched on the rocky outcrops of Salon-de-Provence, a tiny Provence town, which is ideally located to explore everything this delightful area has to offer, there is a tranquil spot where time would appear to have stood still. This 12th century abbey in the hearth of twenty hectares of Provencal gardens and garrigue offers spectacular views of the Alpilles Valley and the countryside surrounding Salon-de-Provence. The rooms still bear traces of the Cistercian monks who once occupied the abbey and boast a decor that blends charm and authenticity and provides a calm and restful atmosphere. You will be delighted with the hotel's attentive service and the culinary delights served in both restaurants which offer delicious dishes based on seasonal local ingredients. ... more   less
