Absolute delight to stay at the property. Provence experience in a historic building and gorgeous gardens and pool, lovely place to relax. Rooms were impeccable with historic woodwork, elegant decor and well-laid out modern bathrooms. Completely enjoyed the gourmet restaurant for dinner and breakfast, part of our food tour of the south of France. Staff very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend as a relaxing getaway for sun and food.

charming hotel in the country offering very enjoyable provencal cuisine in the unique setting of a historical postal station, furnished historically comfortable; excellent quiet sleeping comfort making it a great location for relaxation, located within a 30 min drive from many attractions in north eastern provence, not the least fields of lavender, during blooming season

My girlfriend and I were traveling through France and booked a night at La Bone Etape with dinner at the restaurant. The welcome was excellent and enjoyed some time around the pool, which was really relaxing. Our room had great views over the pool and was really comfortable. Dinner at the restaurant was exceptional. We checked out at 11 the next day but we're allowed to stay and use the pool until we were ready to leave. We would love to stay again!

A hotell with passion and friendliness in typical provencal style. The large herb garden was beautiful with more than 300 different herb plants and beatiful flowers. Relaxed atmosphere. Very friendly and helpfull staff and owner. High price level for the room. Excellent 7 course tasting menu with good pairing using also lokal wines. Fantastic duck and lamb (local) for lunch with wide selection of vegetables deliciously decorated and very tastfull. If you are looking for the autentic provencal experience - this is it!
