Some places are pure magic ! Les Lodges, a serenity bubble only 10 min away from the city center of Aix-En-Provence, is one place you must visit. Because why not? The minute you step in the hotel lobby, you’re like lifted out of our crazy stressful world. Their signature Amber scent gives a pleasant vibe right away. It kinda makes you realize you haven’t been breathing fully in a long time. Exhale the bullsh*t honey! 🙂
The staff is adorable, well spoken, polite and warm. That’s obviously what you expect from a 5 stars hotel but I admit it’s not always the case. At Les Lodges, even Vic, the cat of the property, makes you feel at home.
The luxury hotel is composed of 35 rooms, including suites and several villas with private pools. The architecture and design are very classy and contemporary, located in the pictorial decor of Provence countryside.
Lucky me, I was invited for the second time at Les Lodges Sainte Victoire. It was already one of my favorite place, 2 years ago. This time they offered me & my partner to stay in their best room, the Duplex suite Sainte Victoire. Simply astonishing! This 77m2 suite has a separate living room, a dressing room, a bathroom including a bath and 2 showers, and the best part, a 20m2 terrace with an amazing view over the garden, swimming pool, and of course on Cezanne’s muse: the mount Sainte Victoire. As beautiful as in the paintings, she changes colors along the day. Pure magic at sunset. 🌄
The suite was so big i could run around and dance like nobody’s watching (watch) ! Whaaaat a feeling! Wooh! #flashdance
Not feeling very worky today? Les Lodges is a paradisiac place to chill and take care of yourself! Self-love baby! You can enjoy a heated outdoor pool with a view, and i mean it: you get to swim in an overflowing pool with a panoramic sight on the countryside, the olive trees and the vines. Picture yourself daydreaming in that spectacular scenery with your poolside bestie. Clearly better than going to work, right? 😀
For a more in-depth relaxation, the SPA is open from 10am to 8pm. A serene haven with an indoor swimming pool, sauna, hammam, massages. All is made for you to spend the most delightful experience. 💆♀️ And it’s very enjoyable, even if the hotel is fully booked, its never feels overcrowded. It was imagined and conceptualized that way.
In terms of food, it is top service and quality! You can either enjoy the lighter menu at The Atelier or succumb to the temptation of gourmet chef Julien Le Goff ’s cuisine at the 1 star St Estève restaurant. Love at first bite! Yes, At les Lodges, You are enjoying the french state of the Art cuisine, including Breakfast. Best patisseries, scrambled eggs, home-made cakes and salty tart of the day, cheese, fruits….its all delicious and im just being honest.
It is really hard to translate exactly how i felt during my 2 nights stay but it was hard to leave. I am originally from that region and for the first time, in a very long time, i got the reminiscence of what Provence really is, its delicate perfumes, the weather, the landscape, the peace. It is such a prestigious land. And Les Lodges honor Provence so well. You can’t go wrong booking a room at les Lodges. Believe me!
A huge thank you to the wonderful team of Les Lodges for having us. ❤
