Fabulous Pool and Grounds
Posted Jun 10, 2015 on Hotels
I have fallen in love with Pierre & Vacances properties; so much so, in fact, that we chose 2 more during our 5-week road trip through France, making 4 overall for our trip. These properties are unlike any provided by chains in the USA, so Americans who book for the first time might be confused by their experiences.
Customers are responsible for housekeeping, including making their beds on the first night (you can request initial bed making services for a nominal fee when you contact the hotel directly). The reason for this is that the arrangement is more like renting a cabin than staying at a traditional hotel. The locations, however, are all great; you'll be right where you want to be and in hard-to-park areas, you WILL have parking. All in coastal areas face the water and all have pools, some inside and out.
These are large apartment "studios." Generally, this includes a bedroom, bath, kitchennet, dining area, two divans, and an outdoor porch. Many have hotel services for dinner or at least light lunches (although not all do). This one does have a lounge, full dining, and one of the most spectacular pools I've ever experienced in my life.
The building is currently undergoing renovation and I have no idea how an un-renovated room looks. Ours was just great. Note that the best prices are to be had off-season, but even during the season, their prices are reasonable.
