« Inhale the fragrances of eternal flower, myrtle, lavender and 300 other stalwarts in the Mediterranean garden »

Description of the establishment

In Provence, you'll find a hideaway spread over four sites in the historical village of Grignan: Le Clair de la Plume. Our nineteenth-century furnished rooms reflect easy living and are divided between the main house, opposite a magnificent wash house, and the lovely private house a hundred metres away. This house never closes and its tea room and gastronomic restaurant offering fresh regional produce are open all year round. For those warm sunny days, in our Mediterranean garden (200 metres away), you'll find another restaurant, which is outdoors, natural and organic, and also a chemical-free swimming pool. For an original, romantic stay, try our 'Pavilion des amoureux'. Finally, in the village centre, in our gift shop, you'll find the fragrances, products and traditions of Provence.

We were unimpressed with the food. Some dishes were exquisite, while other dishes totally miss the aspirations of the chef. The mackerel dish we had had such a strong smell that my wife did not eat it.

Nous venons depuis 16 ans, chaque année, et nous ne nous lassons pas de ce lieu magique et poétique qui change au gré de l'imaginaire de son propriétaire! Une bulle de douceur et de couleur, loin du monde!

Excellent restaurant, charming hotel with some drawbacks
3.8
The accessibility of our room (Faubourg 5) wasn't great. When I attempted to move the room's armchair (to watch TV), it left a trail of stuffing on the floor, which gave an impression of untidiness. The swimming pool area was in yet another part of the village, which I found rather inconvenient. The pool itself was quite slippery, possibly due to the presence of algae (perhaps this is due to the fact that it is a "natural" pool). The water was clean, however. The high point of our stay was the dinner at the restaurant: food was perfect and the service excellent.

Charming hotel with amazing staff. Dinner was a charming in a fabulous courtyard setting although the food was certainly a gastronomic challenge with several tasting menus to choose from with, for example, cerviche style fish preparation and Roquefort Icecream.. All in all an ideal and interestingstay over. We will return!

We totally enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The staff was gracious, the room and grounds are gorgeous. I wish I could rate breakfast with more than five stars. I could move into your kitchen and live there forever. Thank you!

This was almost pure chance. We needed an overnight stop en route from Cahors to Grenoble via a southern autoroute journey. We browsed an Alastair Sawday volume and happened upon Grignan and Le Clair de la Plume. It was something of a celebration and our brief stay was faultless. Naturally our evening meal was exceptional but the gentle 'French' quality of our accommodation was welcome and we were pleased with the distinct absence of 'nods' to the 21st century - no fancy taps, no misplaced attempts at 'style' or extravagance of marble. Cherishable - as were the staff.
