We booked here after our stay in Nice but were quite disappointed. We thought that we were going to stay in a 5 stars hotel but that was not the case. The staff is friendly, our room was very small if we take in cconsideration what we paid. The decor is quite old. The garden is a good place to...

We thoroughly enjoyed our few days in Aix en Provence, walking into town each day (although there is a shuttle bus offered by the hotel). The pool is heated and the gardens are beautifully manicured. You can hide in a corner and read or sun bake by the pool. Our proximity to town made going out easy but the restaurant...

This is truly one of the best hotels I've ever stayed. You can see by the photos how beautiful the gardens are, and they truly are! The food in the restaurant was superb. The staff were always so helpful and friendly. Although it is a short walk to the town center, there is also shuttle service if you want it....

This is a highly-praised property, and it deserves the accolades. It's a beautiful hotel on equally beautiful grounds, with spectacular gardens. The service was also great, but two factors kept us from giving it 5 stars. First, to get to the center of Aix, where all the action is, you either have to take their shuttle, or make the 20...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An 18th-century Provencal mansion in beautiful floral gardens, Hotel Le Pigonnet is a secluded hotel just outside the centre of Aix-en-Provence. Promising a peaceful Eden with a grand gated entrance and classic facade framed by elegant Genoese-style towers, it offers a gourmet restaurant, a club-like bar and a Moroccan-styled lounge. The crackle of logs or the songs of cicadas provide the seasonal soundtrack by the fire or on the summer terraces with views over the garden to Mount Sainte Victoire. Each individually-styled room at Hotel Le Pigonnet is rich in Provencal decor and furnishings and has a warm, homely ambience. Hide away in one of Hotel Le Pigonnet's garden nooks on a comfy chair and soak up the country views. Cool off in the pool or relax in a shady area complete with an attractive stone statue. Enjoy bistronomic dining in the restaurant where the cuisine is modern French. ... more   less
