Breakfast: The breakfast that comes with the €220/night rate includes plain coffee with milk and sugar, half a glass of juice, a small cup of fruits and some bread with marmalade. Egg, ham and cappuccino costs €5, €5 and €3 for each piece/person/day. Compared with other 5-star business hotels and high-end holiday villa around Europe, this is the most pricey breakfast we have ever seen.
Dinner rate: The cost is €39/person without drink, and the cheapest win was €35/bottle. We ordered the dinner for the first night, and that cost €129 for 2 persons. Even coming from Sweden, said to be the ''most expensive country'' to live in, we feel the dinner cost a little too much here...
Wifi: We stayed in the Nougat, a room facing the lake on the second floor. The Wifi in the room was extremely poor for connection, and very slow once connected. We have asked the owner about it, but the problem remained during our 8-night stay.
Location: A car is a MUST if you choose to stay here-- the hotel is literally located in the middle of nowhere, 45min drive from Marseilles airport and 25min drive to the nearest city for dinner.
Value for money: Overall we feel the value for money of our stay could be improved -- not only that the room and the shower facility was quite basic given what's been charged, or one has to pay for each tiny piece of extra (warm breakfast, water in the fridge, map, etc), but also the entire atmosphere is not really foreigner friendly -- not a single piece of information in the room was written in English, and all channels on TV(4 or 5) are in French. We understand this is not personal, but the hotel could think to improve the situation, especially when it welcomes international guests.
Tranquility and outdoor facility: The hotel locates at a peaceful private area with a lovely lake in the center of the outer garden, and a beautiful swimming pool in the inner section. The surrounding of the pool was nicely decorated with picturesque flowers and bushes. If you are looking for a complete ''hide away'' holiday with ONLY sun basking, pool swimming and book reading, this place is perfect for you.
Staffs: The staffs are in general friendly and helpful, although we did feel a little ''ignored'' by the owner after stopped ordering the dinner. The son-in-law of the owner is a wonderful cook. The cleaning lady was a nice and efficient person, but a little ''stringent'' on shampoo and shower gel, we had to ask for a refill after waiting for 3 days.
