Sweeping views, scents and delicious food...a little bit of paradise in the heart of the Luberon. Welcome to Alexandre Deshaies’ hotel.
“Finding the little details to delight every guest and give them an unforgettable stay.”
Alexandre never even considered doing anything other than being a hotelier: “I’ve dreamt of this since I was eight.” His Hotel Mas des Romarins, The Originals Relais adventure began in November 2013 when he arrived in Gordes in the heart of the Luberon Region Nature Park. With its “borie” dry stone hut, dry stone wall terraces known as “restanques”, garden, hidden corners and breathtaking views of one of the most beautiful villages in France, how could he not fall in love with the charm of the place? Then there’s the swimming pool for relaxation, comfortable rooms for a good night’s sleep and the casual fine dining famous throughout the region for its menu of local flavours. Is Alexandre proud of the 3 stars of this hotel in Gordes, Provence? He certainly is. “Without passion there’s no love, without love there’s no relationship, without relationship there’s no service, without service there’s no soul and without soul there’s no charm to a hotel...”
The hotel’s thirteen sophisticated and comfortable rooms are located in both the nineteenth century mas stone farmhouse and twentieth century stone workshop. They have understated and individual decor on themes including Travels, Sweet Delights, Cinema and Holidays in Provence. You can choose between a room on the ground floor with terrace/private garden shaded by century-old mulberry trees or one on the first floor with uninterrupted views of the village of Gordes, the Luberon valley and the mountains.
Alexandre’s successful philosophy involves enjoying the food as much as the landscape. The view from the terrace or restaurant veranda is breathtaking but thankfully doesn't seem to affect the appetite... Breakfast is eaten here, twenty alcoholic and non-alcoholic bar creations can be enjoyed, and the casual fine dining experience at restaurant L’Esprit des Romarins, which constantly evolves depending on the ingredients available, can be savoured.
L'Esprit des Romarins, open to guests outside the hotel only on reservation, offers a menu on the theme of freshness changing with the seasons and over the days. Trust the chef with his 3-course menu. The restaurant, easily accessible on the road from Sénanque to Gordes, has a private and free car park.
At the Hotel Mas des Romarins, The Originals Relais, there is something for everyone, whether you're looking to relax or for some thrills as you explore lavender country.
When the southern sun casts down its warm rays, it’s impossible to resist the temptation to freshen up with a swim in the turquoise waters of the pool while admiring the Luberon mountains. Relax even further with your choice of massage inside the hotel, in the garden, beside the pool or in your room (appointment required).
This was a lovely hotel with a small dining room that gives a wonderful view of Gordes and the valley below. My room was of a good size, with a good bathroom. My only suggestion is to provide more light. There is a writing desk, but no way to see what you are writing! And the safe is in the back of a low shelf, with no light to see how to work it! But these were small details. Overall it was lovely.
The location was wonderful. The rooms were very comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay. Wish we could have stayed more then one day!!
From the warm and welcoming reception to the inviting and well appointed room with its lovely terrace and fantastic view to the efficient and courteous checkout, this hotel was everything it should have been. Wish we could have stayed another night. Top notch accommodations and service!
