Very small town, right in the middle of the lavender field area. Not much to do in it, almost no attractions, very few restaurants. But it is definitely conveniently located for lavender fields and for visiting other nearby towns. So we spend one day visiting the lavender fields and the others doing something else, but we had to pass by the fields every time. I felt that was really nice. We felt that 4 nights there was more than enough.
Sadly we arrived when the lavender fields were already cut (only few were still nice lavender colour). In the village one restaurant was opened until 23:00 and they served us even though we arrived after 22:15. The others were already closed.
A charming little village of Provence, the best time to enjoy the place and its surroundings would be June-Mid July, when the lavender grows and before it gets harvested. The area is really beautiful, but lavender being the main attraction, for those who come off season I wouldn’t recommend staying more than a day or two; as there’s much more authentic villages to discover all around. Having the chance to be living not so far from Valensole, my husband and I never cease to be amazed by this magical place.
Valensole is a small village on the edge of the plateau. You can see this in 2-3 hours, but it's a good starting point for a regional discovery. Great location for hikes, bike rides, (easy) mountain bike rides and lakes in the neighbourhood. Close enough to thee Verdon (30km) to visit, unless you are a rock climber and will want to be closer to this. The village has some smaller supermarkets and local cafe, butcher (strongly recommended!) and baker.
Very nice, calm village. Warm people. Many restaurants and Cafes. A nice fountain in the middle of the village and a very good Boulangerie/patisserie that offer a variety of Tasteful french cakes and desserts.
When you say Valensole, all what you mean is part of heaven on earth The lavender fields and the sunflower fields beside each other make a wonderfull view and the smell ohhhhhhh. We ate at Brasserie Du Plateau very tast And dont forget to buy a pizza baked in wood oven from Sergio (friday and saturday)
Overall a good stay at the chateau. Property grounds are very pretty with nice landscaping, a rose garden, and nearby fields with horses roaming. It was a relaxing place to return to after long days out exploring. As a group of three, we stayed in the top floor suite which was very spacious and well decorated. We loved the views from all our windows and sitting on the private balcony to read in the morning. Perfect location if you’re in the area to see the Valensole lavender & sunflower fields.
The best localisation to visit Valensole and its surroundings. I was shocked by their breakfast, really, everything you want is in this place. Amaizing swimming pool, the owners are incredibly friendly. This place deserves a mention, it is simply amazing, well-kept, incredibly clean. If you are looking for a great place in Valensole then believe me, you just found it!
The hotel is amazing, the location, room and restaurant. We went to eat there twice in one day. The staffs are so nice. We came back late from a prewedding photo shooting, and the kitchen is closed. But the staff still helped us make pizza and wine, and deliver to our room. So we can have a great meal after an exhausting day.
Excellent. Brand new apartment with everything you need in the kitchen, toilet, bedroom. It's very clean and well decorated. It's very close to Plateau du Valensole and Gorges du Verdon.
Newly refurbished flat, close to the Valensole village center, it’s a good location to experience the way of life in a village
A very clean apartment on 3 levels right in the heart of Valensole. Parking available only a few minutes walk away
Such nice place in Valensole. The pool makes a big difference in summer. Rooms were big enough and very clean
Exceptional stay in Valensole. Hosts were great and friendly. Louise the dog was adorable
