We spent three nights at Le Provencal. The hotel is in a sweet village, now a bustling resort, on top of a steep hill. The view from the terrace (and from the sea-side rooms, which we did not get) is fabulous. You walk down a road a few minutes to get to the hotel's other property on the water's edge, which contains a few residences for rent, a small but well-cared for garden, a tennis court, and a sea-front restaurant in the garden. The best, though, is the "beach," which isn't a beach at all, but a cement platform right on the water, with deck chairs, a ladder going right into the sea, and a seawater swimming pool. It is in a rocky cove with cactus and pines clinging to the rocks, just beautiful, and the water is so clear, wonderful, wonderful. This is the selling point of this hotel. The rooms are small and not so great, the service business-like and ok, the hotel's restaurants very expensive. We didn't try them. But oh, the swimming . . . .!!!
