Offering a seasonal outdoor pool and a south-facing terrace, Sous Les oliviers - Piscine chauffée à débordement - Charming offers air-conditioned accommodations in Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume. It is a beautiful family run bed&breakfast and it gave me indeed a feel of the family welcome. The house was what I was looking for - secluded and quite, surrounded by the nature, away from the city. At the same time it was fast and easy drive anywhere to explore the area. And the area is stunning! The swimming pool overlooking the forest is amazing. I stayed in the corner sudio next to the forest and there was an outstanding view and the feel if the pure nature right on my terrace. The studio was very clean and comfortable, tastefully designed and decorated. It was well equipped and had everything you might need even for longer stays. The hosts are amazing. Welcoming, warmhearted, attentive, helpful with any advise or your request. I had a truly enjoyable and fulfilling getaway in the nature with very friendly and delicate support of the wonderful hosts.
Located in Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume, 28 miles from Aix-en-Provence, La Borrellienne has a seasonal outdoor swimming pool and free WiFi. Excellent accomodation, Patrick and Sylvie have created a peaceful relaxed home, we were very happy staying here, we loved the clean spacious accomodation. It's a great location away from town. Breakfast was awesome, Sylvie squeezed fresh juice every morning and served lots of home made produce, very nourishing. We Highly recommend staying here.
Reason for our visit was to visit the Basillica. Very nice. No problem with parking & was free. Also found an EXCELLENT vegan restaurant, la Fougassier. Can't recommend highly enough. Food superb. Returned to same restaurant for an evening meal & there was live music in their vaulted cellar restaurant, country & Beatles. Prices very good. Host attentive.
I visited Saint Maximin la Saint Baume as part of my personal Camino. Highlights for me were: the Grotto of Saint Mary Magdalene. It is advertised as a 45 minutes.walk but took me over an hour & 15 mins as I am not fit plus I stopped a few times in the sacred forest of the druids which is full of rare and unique plant species. No matter what the weather, bring a jacket or sweatshirt. The grotto is chilly. Grab a stick (you will find them left on the path by other hikers) especially for the descent as some of the steps are slippy in parts. I also visited the Basilica of St. Mary Magdalene and the crypt where St. Mary Magdalene is buried and her reliquary.
Basilica is very interesting. The Couvent is a good venue for morning coffee. The market on Wednesday is very good. Very varied selection of goods - food and clothes. All reasonably priced. Not many interesting shops. Easy to get to other places by car.
St Maximin is an interesting little town, with a cathedral of great spiritual, architectural and historical significance. (Happening to visit, as I did, over their patronal festival - the Feast of St Mary Magdalene on 22nd July - was a particularly memorable experience.) The town is well placed for some beautiful walks in the surrounding hill country - though one needs, in high summer, to be aware of possible fire precautions. (Janette Norton's walking guide to Provence is very helpful in finding good routes.) Back in St Maximin there is a good choice of restaurants for dinner each evening.
This stay is an bed and breakfast hotel, we enjoyed the stay and the warm welcome of the hosts. The location is great, just 5 min from the cosy centre. Ps: there is a private pool for both rooms and it is very nice, I’m closing the nice and handmade breakfast from the hosts! Pico Bello!!!
We booked and arrived late, and found a note on the door saying we should go to a nearby hotel. There, we were told we had been upgraded to their hotel, and got a nice room for a short night before moving on.
hotel very central, clean and nice. room was big and comfortable, toilet was bit small. the restaurant connected with the hotel is nice and food was good
Didnt have a chance to see whats inside, couldn't get in to the hotel.
