Our 'Escape Season' (Oct 16 - May 15) makes autumn and spring a lot more fun and indulgent for our guests. Treat yourself to a massage and then have a soak in our jacuzzi. Or relax with a drink in our Cocktail Lounge or Pool Lounge. Our Retreats make a stay here fun, interesting and very social. Get to know the other guests at our Tuesday Night Dinners and Saturday night drinks parties.  And of course off-season sun means you can get out and explore, or sun bathe by our pool.

Hit the beach

The beaches near us may be quieter in spring and autumn, but they can still be popular with sub-bathers, especially on the weekends. In early Spring and ate autumn, they're the perfect place for a walk - empty sand, bluebery-blue skies and the roar of the ocean. 


The restaurants around us are fantastic (including two that are Michelin-starred), and whether you tuck into traditional French cuisine in a village bistro or pop down to the coast for delicious seafood with wine, you'll be spoilt for choice. You can also visit one of the hundreds of wineries in our area to taste their wines - and chat with the wine maker.s 


Spring and autumn are the most beautiful times of year to visit. In spring, wild flowers carpet the countryside with fields of fiery-red poppies and hillsides of honey-scented yellow broom. In autumn, all the vines and the trees that line the roads turn vibrant shades of red, orange and gold. Temperatures are cool (15C) to warm (25C) - and it's possible to sunbathe and swim. It's the perfect time of year for walking, biking, sightseeing, wine tasting and enjoying seafood on the coast.

Cocktail Lounge

Our new Cocktail Lounge is the heart of the hotel during Escape Season. Sit at the bar and order a Manhattan or a Mojito. Cuddle up in a comfy sofa with a book by a roaring fire. Or play games or just chat with the other guests. 


With over 300 days of sunshine here each year, you'll love hanging out during the day in our 'Pool Lounge'. It's a great spot to chat with the other guests, with a glass of bubbly in hand, and take in the rays. 


Many guests say that their massage with Pierre our masseur is the very best they've ever had. He has magical hands, and can find and sooth the deepest of knots - leaving you feeling relaxed and reinvigorated. 


After your massage with the lovely Pierre, why not pop down to our pool-side jacuzzi for a relaxing soak? It's the perfect place to chat on sunny afternoons with other guests.


We prepare a delicious 3-course meal on Tuesday evenings during Escape Season - delicious food accompanied by some of our region's best wines. And on Saturday nights we hold a pre-dinner drinks party in our Cocktail Lounge. They're both a great way to meet all the other guests.
