One week in paradies
The person, who prefers hotel punkers and constant animation is wrong here! But who wants to dive into the Provence and get to know the way of life there is completely right in the Hotel La Colombiere. It is not a standard hotel, more a Chambres d'hotel – a typical French way of renting witch is best comparable with the Bed and Breakfast system in England. We ate in a dream come true kitchen together with the other international guests and the hosts Tom and Barbara on one table. The host Barbara cooked magnificent. For breakfast there was a lot of self-made things like bread, jam, honey, brioche or a traditional kind of cereal from the area. La Colombiere has five rooms and a holiday apartment. The rooms in the parterre have a deck with sitting accommodations, which are also everywhere on the areal. The rooms on the first floor have a balcony. Every single room is decorated lovely and differently. La Colombiere is located in a quiet area right next to a castle, a lavender willow and olive trees. From there you can go biking, running, hiking, drive to the Verdon Gorge, where u can rent a boat or a canoe or you can visit one of the many markets. Most of the visitors are welcome in their mother tongue because Tom speaks German, English, French and Spanish. We really enjoyed our vacation at the Hotel La Colombiere and constantly had the feeling to be a guest at some really good friends. It is a place to come down. We already miss this place and our great and amazing hosts Tom and Barbara!
