Resort was beautiful with pathways covered in lavender. We stayed in villa 172 which had amazing views from the windows looking out to the fields and mountains beyond. The open plan lounge, dining and kitchen area was a great place to hang out and socialise with family especially with those gorgeous french doors leading out to the patio and pool area. The villa was pretty and tastefully decorated with french furniture and rustic french shutters with lovely earth colours, in pale yellow, cream and green. I wonder if Farrow and Ball got their inspiration from France?....The pool was a really good size and it was private even though you could use the massive and stunning communal pool. Bed mattresses were really comfortable too. The hotel facilities were very good especially the spa! It was beautiful! Infact, the spa, the decor and the massage was 5 star.
Negatives about the house: When we first arrived they could have opened out the folding sofa bed in one of the rooms (only one bedroom had a sofa bed); No iron provided (and we asked); no bottle opener, strange considering most guests would want to enjoy a glass of wine. No dishwasher or washing powder. Not enough towels were provided. My husband and I stayed in one of the double rooms with onsuite shower room and the wardrobe only had 4 x clothes hangers, thats not enough for two people staying for a week. There was definately a lack of attention to detail all round. Reception staff were not particularly helpful and friendly and there was nothing written in english about the area in and around St Laurent de Cabrerisse. Seems like they cater for the french and not the foreign tourist.
