What an odd place. There must be a story behind the hotel which seems very quiet and rather odd. It has been refurbished some years ago in a rather bizarre style and now seems to have been left to go to semi ruin. We stayed in a very strange room with its own bar and bed on a raised Dias. The bathroom was rather tatty and could do with sorting out. However ignore that and try the restaurant which couldn't be more different. A really top class menu, beautifully cooked and well served. We had the chef's recommendation with selected wines and it was a real treat. So turn a blind eye to the rooms and stick to the food.
The hotel as such was quite nice, with clean large rooms. However, the so-called continental breakfast, which can be had for 12 Euros, consisted of a baguette, some jam and honey and a glass of juice. I found the price ridiculously expensive for this type of food. Worse, the hotel claimed that Internet connection over WiFi was available in all rooms. However, this turned out not to be the case, as my room was located too far from the reception where the router was placed. When I pointed this out to the receptionist, she acknowledged that she was already well aware of this, and that I could try to position my computer at different points in the room to see if that helped (it of course didn’t). So if you book a room, do not expect the Internet connection to work.
The Mas du Luberon is a good location outside of Aix, making the prices reasonable. The 4-person rooms were useful for the family, although the rooms are on the weird side. They are basically remodeled, re-purposed parts of a former bar, converted into rooms. In The Calanque room, for example, we had a nice terrasse, and a 12-foot-long wet bar with 5 refrigerators. I tried to locate the disco ball, but all that remained of the disco days was the mirrored ceiling. Despite my words warning you of the weirdness, this hotel is suitable for an extended stay for a family. The hotel staff are attentive, friendly. The price for the breakfast is out-of-line, being too expensive for just some coffee and bread or croissant with jam. I recommend trying to take breakfast elsewhere. I would stay here again, but I would first explore the options elsewhere, perhaps more central to Aix-en-Provence.…
Six of us stayed at this hotel during Rugby World Cup 2007. We wanted to stay firstly in Marseille (where the games were being played) but the city was block booked. Our second choice was the lovely town of Aix en Provence but that was hard going as well so we moved further out. The hotel can be found on the excellent Logis de France website. It is is a pleasant enough village about 10 minutes from Aix and about 30 to 45 minutes from Marseille dependant on traffic. Parking is on the street but safe enough in a quiet village. We did not use them but there seemed to be a reasonably variety of shops. The hotel is rather typically French and somewhat quirky but the rooms are huge and decorated in a slightly faded Provencal style, which is fair enough given the location. The staff were very friendly and spoke passable English but my wife speaks very good French so that was not a problem. Breakfasts were continental and fresh. We dined in one evening on the very pleasant terrace which as previously mentioned has a quite glorious view of the valley. Food was excellent and sensibly priced. We would stay here again.…
I read with interest the other reviews. They totally miss the point. You don't stay here to explore Venelles, which is a charming small village although not much to see or do there. But it is an excellent location to explore Provence. It's only a short drive (10-15 minutes) to Aix and to the main roads that can take you throughout Provence. And when staying here you avoid the big city crowds. It's only about 30 minute drive from the airport in Marseille. We stayed here for five days and loved the place. We had a very large room with a bar, refridgerator, dining area, spacious bathroom and small balcony with table and chairs. We sat on the balcony every morning to devour the freshly baked and delicious bagettes and croissants we purchased at the little bakery down the street. We also sat on the balcony in the evening for a glass of wine and cheese after a busy day of exploring this outrageously beautiful countryside and historic Medieval cities (Avignon, Arles, Aix, etc.). We expect to return here the next time we come to Provence. Keep in mind, no matter where you stay in Provence, you must have a car to fully explore it wonders.…
