About Château de la Pioline

Set on four hectares of parkland three miles outside Aix-en-Provence city centre, Château de la Pioline offers accommodation in an elegant 16th-century property. Facilities include a business centre and a seasonal outdoor pool.

Decorated in a classic Provençal style, air-conditioned rooms and suites boast high-end amenities such as premium bedding, device docking stations, designer toiletries, and coffee makers. Additional conveniences include satellite TV, minibars, and safes. Room service is available.

Along with conference, meeting, and event space, Château de la Pioline features a French-style garden and a furnished terrace. Practical extras include concierge services, free parking, and complimentary Wi-Fi. Pets are permitted on request and for an additional fee.

A star chef is at the helm at the on-site Michelin-starred Lime Tree Restaurant, an elegant dining spot offering both á la carte and set menus, and al fresco dining in the summer months. Guests can also relax in the bar.

Château de la Pioline sits less than four miles from both Place des Quatre-Dauphins and Théâtre de l'Archevêché.

Positive Reviews

Elegant accommodation option

Guests describe this château as offering an elegant setting to enjoy a break in Aix-en-Provence. This beautiful historic home is set amid nicely maintained gardens and sprawling parkland – a setting in which guests feel able to relax.

Friendly and helpful service

Service here invariably comes with a smile, often inspiring guests to leave a few kind words for the staff in their feedback about the hotel. The staff is reported as being consistently friendly and attentive.

High-end dining on site

With a Michelin-starred restaurant serving up all manner of culinary delights on site, a delicious breakfast or a sumptuous three-course dinner is never too far away. Guests rate all aspects of dining at the restaurant as excellent.

Negative Reviews

Area can come as a surprise

Guests are often surprised – and frequently disappointed – to find the area immediately outside of the hotel grounds is not quite as rural as anticipated. Rather than rolling hills dotted with wineries, there’s a bustling commercial district with large car dealerships right outside the gates.

Updates can appear out of place

Guests note that renovations to this 16th-century property don’t always appear in keeping with the original style. On the contrary, new additions can clash with original features, taking a little something away from the experience of staying here in the process.

Lacks casual dining option

Michelin-starred dining is an experience to remember but it’s not necessarily an experience that guests want to experience every day. An option to enjoy casual dining at the hotel would be welcome.
