Good and well located hotel. {2 stars}

Hotel Les Sables d'Ocre, photo by me

The room was a big triple room with a large and nice bathroom and a separate toilet. It had a flat screen TV and a balcony facing the back garden. There were a table and two chairs on the balcony. It had air conditioning. It is possible to dine at the hotel; they have menus at 19E and a la carte.

The walk to the village is short and there are sidewalks. There are also some restaurants and cafes, pizzerias in the village. Bakery and ice cream places were nice, too. There is at least one small store on the way to the village selling food and drinks.

After our meal in the village we went back to our hotel and to the swimming pool. Most people were dining inside and some in the garden, but we had the pool to ourselves. The garden was well maintained and the pool was very clean. Our son wanted to stay a few nights there so much he liked the pool.

He also enjoyed the big balls which became illuminated at night and the 2 grass cutting robots that were running around by themselves. He was scared they could catch him, but was laughing every time he saw them. The grass, the trees, and the flowers were perfect there.

I have read in some reviews that this hotel was not typically Provencal, but it is a really nice hotel with modern comfort. I would say there were something from Provence in the rooms (the covers), and in the lobby and restaurant the décor was special, too. It wasn’t an old house, but to me it definitely had some Provencal charm.

For 108E per night for a triple room the hotel was excellent. The location was perfect for exploring lavender fields and other villages around.
