Oh ! Provence ! My sweet provence, My childhood. Your blue sky, Olive trees, Lavender, the perfume of your land. it has to do with Magic.
Les Lodges Sainte Victoire is situated in the small town of Le Tholonet, at only 16 kms of my home town, Aix-en-Provence. I have travelled quite a bit and visited many hotels but Les Lodges is definitely one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. For its location, for the view, for the cosy rooms, for the SPA… stunning Spa.
I had the opportunity to be invited by Les Lodges to experience their charming 4 star hotel and I had an amazing time.
The rooms at Les Lodges are spacious and very well decorated, in a very french decor obviously. The bed was really comfy – it was hard to leave!
I was lucky to have a room with a small private terrace, which is very nice to enjoy a drink, read a book or just enjoy chill. It almost feels like home. You can also admire La Montagne Sainte Victoire from there. Amazing view!
Unfortunalety, the weather wasn’t really nice to me, as you can see. It is pretty rare in the south of France. I couldn’t fully enjoy the outdoor swimming pool, which is a very pleasant one but still, I was NOT gonna let the clouds ruin my stay and I spent quite some time in the warm water, enjoying the view.
I decided to spend more time in the SPA and it was not a bad move: indoor pool with a superb fountain wall, hammam, sauna, sofas. SPA really tells you about a hotel, how it is managed. And the SPA at Les Lodges is very well maintained and super clean. You can spend quality time with yourself.
Breakfast at Les Lodges is a nice buffet with a typical french choice of croissants, pain au chocolat, pain aux raisins. DE-LI-CIOUS! All my favourite things: An assortment of vienoiseries, fresh fruits, homemade cakes, and hot dishes like scrambled eggs, everything is perfect!
Unfortunately, i didn’t have the chance to try the michelin-star restaurant Le Saint Estève at Les Lodges but it’s supposed to be an amazing experience. Next time…
With Les Lodges being in the heart of the luxurious provence vegetation, it’s the perfect place to base yourself if you want to enjoy a peaceful atmosphere. And if you are craving for the excitement of the provencal nightlife you have Aix-en-Provence, nearby.
I really loved my stay at Les Lodges. There is not much around except nature, but that’s the point. It is the perfect place when you want to disconnect from the fast pace of big city life. And where else than experiencing the south of France art de Vivre at Les Lodges.
