You'd have to be a very picky first world traveler indeed not to appreciate the value of this charming if a bit funky hotel. A very good shower, clean sink and toilet, comfortable bed in a room bigger than most hotel rooms in Paris, a possibility of a step-out and sit down balcony over the small garden in front of the hotel, friendly staff AND not 80 feet from the circular road that rings the center of St. Remy. All of the town's shops and restaurants are within a short walk (try Un Ete Dans Provence for fantastic pastas, desserts and convivial service at great prices -- three minutes from the hotel). With easy parking right in front, clearly marked on the roundabout, the Cheval Blanc is easy to find... And for seventy dollars a night for a room?! In the high season?! Of course, if you are a spoiled socialite who buys new clothes rather than wash her old ones, then go to the Oustau de Baumanière over the hill in Les Baux -- fantastic accomodations and food, but you'll need a small bank in the trunk as a room and dinner will set you back about five hundred dollars minimum. (No breakfast in that price, either.) When you want to step out and browse in St. Remy you'll need to drive there first. And then park there. And THEN explore the town. And I'll have already spent my four hundred and thirty dollars savings on my room in the Cheval in Saint Remy on original art, pottery, wine, cookies and an omelette by the time you buy your first noisette.
