Discovered in a brochure from one of the hotels we stayed in.

Apparently famous for its violets, here you can find a large range of products with violet perfume.

Hotel review - Best Western Hôtel Paradou, Montfavet, France

We booked a superior room which actually had two bedrooms and a nice master bed.

Free parking places and free internet access when it´s working (because´s not!).

Not much to eat at breakfast, except some cheese and some jam and butter.
