Provence Guru Hotels Guide, Pavillon de La Torse, Aix
This is a real little secret. A country house hotel/bed and breakfast within walking distance of the centre of Aix en Provence. I’ve driven past the Pavillon de La Torse many a time and not even known it was there, hidden behind a line of mature trees. The gardens are sumptuous, the rooms a little basic, the welcome warm, the prices generous – starting at 150 euros a night for a double room and parking.
