I recommend this charming hotel. Great location between Marseille and Aix en Provence, beautiful grounds with swimming pool and tennis court, very friendly service and dog friendly establishment. Water is from the source inside the hotel.

This was our third trip to Provence and our third stay at the Hostellerie. It's been almost 11 years since the last stay and we found it as lovely as ever. The Hostellerie is what the French call a Relais, which means it is a hotel which was previously a historical site or building. I believe that in this case it was previously a monastery. The owners, Isabelle and her husband, live on the premises and work non-stop to make your stay pleasant. The Hostellerie is a 3 star property and still old fashioned in many ways. It exudes the charm of the area. Pool is well maintained and there is a lovely view from the pool area. There is always someone there to serve you from the bar, or provide a refreshing beverage. The grounds include a tennis court and pond with huge white swans. Much more charming than a neighboring chain hotel. A little bit of provencal paradise. Only a few miles from the charming town of Gemenos which has a tourist office as well as many restaurant choices. If we return to the area we will definitely stay there again. In it's price range it is an excellent choice.

During a two week stay in Gemenos, we needed to spend three nights at a nearby hotel, and, luckily, chose the hotel "de la Source". The setting is magic - swans, tennis, covered swimming pool, a beautiful garden with 800 year old boxwood hedges, beneficial and ancient waters from a Roman aqueduct, and a couple who are so, so charming and thoughtful. We stayed at one of the adjacent bungalows with a private terrace. The wifi coverage does not include the bungalows, so we took our computers to the terrace by the main hotel as needed. The location is very convenient for Marseille, Cassis, and all the beauty of the locale. My son and I both loved it, and very much enjoyed learning the history of the church and the property. Hope to return soon. Book in advance, as 'the Source' has many regular guests; do read the history of the property which can be found on the desk in the rooms.

Room tip: Wifi in the main hotel is available, not in the bungalow rooms. There are church bells which ring perhaps twice (?) each day.

Simple clean place if a little dated. But the charm of the grounds on a summers evening and the welcome of the hosts puts any doubts behind you.

The Hostellerie de la Source is located outside of Aubagne. By car it takes a couple of minutes to the city, to the Centre Commercial and to access the autoroute. The beaches of Cassis, La Ciotat and Bandol can be reached within 30 - 40 minutes by car.
It's a peaceful place with a little lake and swans, a nice terrace and lovely pool area.
The room we stayed in was nice and clean. It could have been a little more spacious. The bathroom was perfectly clean as well and pleasant.
The owners/ hosts have been VERY friendly, obliging and helpful in every situation! Since we were visiting a lot of places in the surrounding area, we often returned late which wasn't a problem at all.
A nice breakfast selection is offered as well.
We did enjoy a very nice stay at the hostellerie.
