La Bonne Étape hotel and restaurant

In the beautiful setting of Provence

Hôtel La Bonne Étape Provence

Like magic, the Gleize family have been bringing this former 18th century post house to life for generations. It all began with a motorbike breakdown at the bend in a road near Château-Arnoux. Pierre Gleize, a confectioner by trade, crossed paths with Arlette Rey. Her family owned the former post house, which had been converted into an inn. It wouldn’t be too long before their son Jany was born, along with the hotel of La Bonne Étape, a symbol of their meeting.

The family-run hotel welcomes travellers and foodies from around the world seeking some rest and recreation in the great outdoors. In a setting that seems to come right out of a novel by the Provençal writer Jean Giono, with the village on one side and the hills on the other, discover 18 rooms and suites.

Some services are offered on site such as: laundry service available on request at the reception and dogs accepted (for an extra charge).

The “Jean Rey” vegetable garden


Hôtel La Bonne Étape Provence

A stay at La Bonne Étape is also your invitation to pass the time in the vegetable garden, where you can feel free and at one with nature. The pride and joy of Jany Gleize, the “Jean Rey” organic vegetable garden is named after his farmer grandfather, and neighbours the property. Forgotten varieties, vegetables, aromatic plants, flowers and fruit sit side by side in a lovingly organised pastoral setting. The colours, smells and flavours find their way into the restaurant’s dishes. The English-style garden with its Provençal flair is a lovely spot to while away the hours at your own pace. If available, the master of the house will be happy to explain to you how the organic garden works, and how “grelinette” forking has replaced traditional digging methods.
