We were here for a wedding and I adored this place! The only reason it is not 5 stars was the bar (which no one seemed to be at ever). Otherwise, it is an old abby and is on truly beautiful grounds. Worth a wonderful stay!

My recommendation to anyone travelling through France - book a room at a hotel "Relais" - these are old postal way stations where the mail would be sorted or handed off to a new coach and horses (not sure but I think this is where the English word "relay" comes from). Many of

Dear Mr 'Euroyankee', Thank you so much for this amazing review of La Bégude Saint Pierre. You know what, we absolutely agree with you: a glass of pastis is one of the best way to enjoy it ! We look forward to welcoming you back in Provence ! Best regards, Charlotte

Maybe you have read my previous reviews of Bégude? We have stayed three times and each time was truly magical, especially the food. It's changed. I assume new management has come in - if you are reading this Mr Manager - you are ruining the palace - stop and go back to how it

Dear Mr Sand (and Mrs Ludlam), We have read your comments this morning in detail. Our guests’ reviews are always really important to us, as our main goal is to make our guests enjoy their stay, and we are always on the lookout for ways to improve. As a result, it is our policy to offer compensation when we have technical issues in the allocation of rooms, and we were delighted to see that you appreciated the bottle of wine (value 34 €), the drinks (value 10 €), and extra bed (value 30 €) for free. We were however surprised to find that you are under the impression we price our rooms at EUR 300-800 per night as our prices never exceed 450,00 EUR for our largest room (60 m²) at the highest season. As a matter of fact, you paid 254,00 EUR for a family room (40 m²), which is just below the status of a Suite. As you may or may not understand, the price of the rooms is meant to cover the rent, maintenance, repair, and cleaning of the building and external amenities but not the service. We pride ourselves on what we believe to be the best value for money in our class of hotel in our region. Equally, we reserve the right to charge for extra services as a means to inform our clients that freshly pressed orange juice is not the norm for our reasonably priced breakfast (we however have fresh local juices included in the price of pear, apple, and apricot). In addition, we try to limit, what is a labour intensive and wasteful service, to those who clearly appreciate it. Regarding the restaurant, we take seriously the comments you made about the dirty mugs and tables, and warm coffee. We apologize profoundly for this error. Equally, we are very sorry that you had to request the bread for your meal. It is our policy to serve the bread at the beginning of the meal and as much as our guests want! We have spoken to our restaurant staff, have shown them your comments and taken the time to reinforce procedures and training. We do believe some of your comments may have to do with the expectation you had set for our restaurant. Sadly, we have recognized over the years that, in the main, the demand of our guests no longer is a Michelin starred restaurant (and consequent price), but rather a desire to dine in a regular gastronomic restaurant with nice service, great location, ambiance and at a reasonable price. That is exactly what we are trying to provide. You may have noticed the menu you had Thursday evening as your half board is only 39,00 EUR per adult, and this price is hardly the price of a Michelin starred restaurant, nor is it meant to be. One third of your comment is about the smoking policy at our property. As it is written in every confirmation email, our establishment is smoking free. But we cannot forbid our guests to smoke outside. Even in 2017, we have a lot of guests that would not frequent our establishment if smoking outside were not possible. We are however sensitive to your comments and we do intervene politely and respectfully when asked by customers. It is a shame that we need to communicate using this forum as you could have let us know your grievances during your stay or even during your check-out. I am the one who did the check out with your wife Friday morning and unfortunately none of these issues were reported, even after extensive questioning. As you have been so liberal in your review, we would like to take the opportunity to reciprocate some advice: the words you chose to describe what you think is our policy:  pathetic, greedy, madness, sheer stupidity and short sighted, could easily be interpreted by some as disrespectful or down right impolite. We suggest that refraining from this sort of language would increase the credibility and acceptability of your review. Best regards, Charlotte G

This place has completely turned itself around. We have visited in both winter and summer, and on warm summers evening the place truly comes into its own, sitting on the terrace eating the very best of delicate dishes, friendly service and fine wines. Happy to return to this
