A friendly team, a convenient stopover, hearty fare...welcome to Sébastien Monin's hotel.
“I enjoy greeting guests, and I enjoy making sure guests enjoy themselves” .
The Originals City, Hotel La Belle Étape, Brignoles could conceivably also have been called ‘La Belle Famille’ - The Beautiful Family. Its family-run aspect plays a big part in the hotel's narrative, as does its ambiance. It is welcoming, relaxed and ideal to visit Provence and Cote d'Azur. Looks are not everything for this 3-star hotel, sitting right in the heart of the Var region. It is what is inside that counts: human interaction and fantastic service. “I prefer being to looking,” explains Sébastien, who has already started to make a few changes here and there (the bar, terrace and restaurant have already had a facelift). The 37 rooms, however, have a little while to wait. What does it matter, though, when they have everything you need for a relaxing night’s sleep after taking some time to unwind with a dip in the outdoor pool, or some hearty food and drink in the hotel restaurant, which is well-known for its delicious self-service buffet throughout Brignoles.
Clean and well-kept, the 37 rooms at The Originals City, Hotel La Belle Étape, Brignoles are so much more than just their décor. The hotel is simply decorated in white throughout. But the essentials of comfort and high-quality service are most definitely there. Guests with reduced mobility will be happy to find rooms specially adapted to their needs. So will families, who will find accommodation here where up to 5 people can sleep in the same room.

SAVEURS À GOGO
The Originals City, Hotel La Belle Étape, Brignoles is in an excellent location. “We are 1 hour away from all the Côte d'Azur’s attractions,” says Sébastien. As well as being only a few hundred metres from the historic centre of one of the Var’s most beautiful medieval villages.
SWIMMING POOLRight next to the hotel is the pool and its sunbathing lawn, simply begging guests to indulge in a spot of relaxation after a long day sightseeing or working. Pool or sunlounger - the choice is yours!
GOLFFancy getting out on the green? Head to Barbaroux golf club and enjoy one of the most prestigious courses in Europe. The 18-hole course is 6068 metres (6614 yards) long, with an 18-hectare backdrop of fabulous wooded landscape.
HISTORIC BRIGNOLESThe medieval town centre is the perfect place for a stroll, where visitors can lose themselves in the narrow streets and imagine medieval city life in the birthplace of the Earls of Provence. Take some time to read the stones, and look over the walls. Each of them has its own story to tell: the house of Lanciers, the house of Rabbin...here it is more than a backdrop: it is a real voyage through time.
EXPLORING THE COTE D’AZURWhether you want to explore the region’s cities (Monaco, Cannes, Nice), villages (St-Tropez, Le Castellet, Bormes-les-Mimosas…) or countryside (the Verdon gorges, the Blavet, the Maures mountain range, the Port-Cros National Park…), there is no shortage of adventures to be had in and around Brignoles.
What our customers say
"Pleasant stay for a good price"
Everything was fine, the WIFI signal was a little weak but if you do not plan to watch movies or upload/download something, it is ok. The breakfast was very nice and stuff was nice.
Overall very enjoyable: good for, comfortable room, friendly staff and an interesting town. Stay was slightly marred by the late arrival of a noisy and overexcited rugby team, who were actually quite amusing in the morning; however, I hope that they did not upset any of the hotel team members. Obviously the hotel had no control over this so this is not a complaint. One tiny point: there was an old drip of coffee on one of the bedside shelves, and we did not put it there. This raises a concern about cleanliness. In all other respects the room seemed spotless.
