Visitor comments

  • "Recently awarded its fifth star, this pink-sided Provençal mansion on the edge of town is surrounded by gardens and memories of Paul Cézanne, who used to visit. The high-ceilinged bedrooms are elegantly furnished in a modern style. Breakfast is served on a colonnaded veranda overlooking a reflecting pool in the courtyard." - Frommers
